Are they safe on my iPad mini and my iPhone 6? Do they work.

Be sure to use the newer ones. You can tell those because they're only compatible with the 5s and up on iPhones.

AdBlock seemed very easy to use.

I took my iPad and iPhone to the Apple Store Genius desk because they were not downloading very well from Wifi. The Genius desk blamed the Ad Blockers and got rid of them for me - and both devices are now working better.

I’d blame Apple—they approved every single app you find on the App Store, including ad blockers. Heck, they got part of the revenue for the sale if the ones you were using were not free. So they need to approve only ad blockers that work correctly. That means thoroughly checking them before approving them.

I have been using an ad blocker called “Purify” for the longest time and it hasn’t given me any problems. You may want to take a look at that one, if the Genius didn’t make you permanently scared of them.
