    Is it just me or iOS6 and the iPad2 don't work well together? Since the update it keeps freezing on me, it was fine before so all I can think of is the firmware. Anyone else?

    Mine has also been freezing since the update. And a another thing: it has rebooted several different times on its own for no apparent reason.
    Hard to figure what's going on.

    I have one. Can't say that. Couple of apps close themselves down, but no freezing.

    Safari work ok? That's where I experience most of the problems, and the settings app.

    I have an iPad 2 on iOS 6. Other than few app crashes (likely due to apps not supporting the update yet) it's been fine. Sorry you're having problems.

    Have you tried hard-resetting the iPad? Did you restore from a previously jailbroken iPad and restored from backup?

    Haven't noticed safari issues, or settings. The App Store crashes a lot. Sorry to say the eiC app does too. Facebook (of coarse), and a few others. The whole experience is a bit slower. It hard to explain.

    Yeah, I tried a hard reset, no good. iOS6 still feels very beta.

    I haven't had any freezing, but my battery has been a lot worse. The standby time is noticeably shorter and it's annoying. I only use my iPad 2 for quick lookups while on the couch and it lasted me quite a while. Not it seems I'm down to 20% every 2-3 days.

    The only issue I've had until this moment is when using Evernote, the note title & note thumbnail sometimes blink. So weird hmm.

    This morning my battery was on 47%. 5p with less than 2-hours use it was at 5%. What draining it? Lasted for days on the old iOS.

    My iPad 3 has not backed up since 10/11/2012. I have: reset; rebooted; excluded most apps from the backup (thinking maybe an app was hanging it up) & tried to manually force a backup; deleted the existing backup & tried to back up again; - nothing worked. Thinking maybe it was my Comcast gateway, I went to a different WiFi hot spot. This time it acted like it was successfuly executing the backup but after it "finished" it said the backup had not completed successfuly. Keep getting the periodic messages that it needs a backup but I can't get it to do it. My iPad sits right next to my iPhone 4, stays plugged in & is connected to the same WiFi network as my iPhone. My iPhone backs up to iCloud successfuly every day; my iPad has NOT backed up since 10/11/12. Any thoughts?

    Odd..

    On Nov 13th you made this post with the thread title of:

    Hello I am new to the Apple iPads just bought the iPad3 And. (Discussion in 'iPad' started by robert black, Nov 13, 2012.)




    In that thread you said:

    And

    Now all of the sudden you have and have had an iPad 2 or was the post you made in this thread just another opportunity to bash the iPad and iOS?

    In the 2 weeks that have followed you have degraded the iPad, the iPad mini and iOS all the while singing constant praise of the Samsung Galaxy line of tablets..

    What is the end 'game' here?

    I can't say that I've had any issues with my iPad 2 on iOS 6. I updated on realease day and it has been very stable for me.

    My iPad 2 has been ok apart from a couple of apps shutting down. I generally just reinstall the app. Normally happens after an app updates. Other than that my iPad has been great.
