    My wife has an iPad 2 and it has been working perfectly until she updated to that cursed iOS 7

    1) She hates the cartoony look

    2) her iPad became laggy in everything she does including typing

    3) she updated to the 2nd iOS 7 update hoping things would get better but nope

    4) in Skype, when she is in a call, the other party cannot hear her although the mic is not muted

    5) we installed a free sound recorder to see if the mic is even working and it IS! so it's skype that is not playing well with iOS 7

    6) Please help me help her downgrade to iOS 6 with a step by step guide I am a noobie when it comes to
    Apple products

    thanks in advance

    No can do, sorry to say. The signing window for downgrading to iOS 6.x.x has closed.

    Apple loves to make you buy new products. The iPad 2 is now outdated. They want you to go to the store and buy a brand newbie.

    Not exactly. It's clearly skype that's the issue.

    You might want to try deleting the Skype app on the iPad and re-installing it. Sometimes this fixes weird app bugs.

    Other than that, the best you can do is report the problem to skype and hope for a skype app update.

    Ford loves to make you buy new products.

    Frigidaire loves to make you buy new products.

    Samsung loves to make you buy new products (especially when they're gold!).

    iOS 7 has been running perfectly fine on my iPad 2. Might I suggest a hard reset? Reset all settings? Full restore?

    As others have stated, you can't go back to iOS 6. It took me a while, but I got used to the new look and now I prefer it. I got tired of looking at the same stock apps for 6 years...

    Just wait until an IOS 7 jailbreak becomes available, then you should be able to downgrade fairly easily.

    So you're saying "operator error" of some kind? Seems strange when one user is having these sorts of issues and others aren't.

    No, not at all. I was just saying how my iPad became faster when upgraded.
