Updated my iPhone 6S and my iPad Mini 2 without issues.

What amazes me is that the upgrade also included my old original iPad 2 all these years later and it still works just fine.

I suspect once iOS 10 comes out, the old iPad 2 will be dropped, but what a run.

My only iPad is the old iPad2 :) So, I guess I am SOL when it comes to iOS 10 :)

Trouble is, it still works perfectly - just like my old 2006 Core Duo White MacBook, stuck on an old OS X.

Cheers

Maybe not Tilt, I am just guessing it might happen. Maybe we will both be surprised?

My iPad 2 still stays running on several iOS versions behind the latest and is still fully compatible for any Jailbreak use I might use in the future thank you, and I don't see any reason to "upgrade" as almost none of the "new features" are even supported with this model, so why bother and it does most of the things I need it to do.

And Apple still can't seem to get their installed "upgrades" working properly so why bother or even rushing to be on the leading edge, for no real reason???

PS: Be thankful we didn't have iPad Pros with their Apple "upgrade" screwup…

Apple iOS 9.3.2 Has A Nasty Surprise
"Today Apple AAPL -0.74% released iOS 9.3.2. On the surface it appears to be a minor update and its arrival was met with little ceremony. But beware, just hours after launch, it turns out iOS 9.3.2 is hiding a very nasty surprise indeed…

Apple iOS 9.3.2 is bricking iPad Pros."

Personally I'll stick with something that just works, even if not perfect that will probably never ever get fixed regardless of "upgrades"… :o :rolleyes:

Can anyone comment on the newest iOS 9.3.4 on the iPad 2? For my devices, I'm waiting for iOS 10 for my wife, I was thinking of going to 9.3.4 for her.

It fixes a security issue and disables the exploit that allowed jailbreaking. I'd go ahead and update.

Might depend on what you have and what you might need or do with your iDevices. And especially if you do any jailbreaking, but it may be too late to use any depending on what iOS is currently installed.

I'd suggest googling a bit and read some of the hits that interest you:

Apple restricts iOS 10 to iPhone 5, 4th-gen iPad or newer [u] (http://appleinsider.com/articles/16/06/13/apples-ios-10-restricted-to-devices-with-a6-soc-or-newer)

It would be dog slow on an iPad 2 even if it was supported. It's best for Apple not to give people false hope by allowing iOS 10 to run on ancient hardware.

Sure can't argue with that mk. I for one am grateful that I was able to enjoy the use of my iPad 2 bought on launch day all those years ago. I had expected it to be done a couple of updates ago. While I only use it for mail and surfing the odd bit now, it will continue to be useful even without iOS 10.
