    For sometime now my iPad 2 has been slowing down since updating to iOS 7. The problem was a minor inconvenience but at time progresses it is getting slower. The wait for an app to open is crazy; safari is dog slow. It's near unusable.

    I've tried a hard reboot and resetting all settings but that really didn't help much. Any other thoughts?

    I do not have an iPad, well I do but it's now my moms.

    Have you tried a restore to factory, and not using a backup after? You can sync your music and apps back to your device after, but make sure you know your specific settings that you have set.

    Many things help slowness issues. A simple restore can help, as well as checking what applications are running in the background. Trying all of the possibilities will be good, but of course the first few the ones that we know best, such as restoring, hard reset which I believe you said you tried that already.

    Are you seeing your iPad 2 be slow for you on a daily basis?

    I have an iPad 2 on iOS 7 and I've had no problems. I'd suggest a restore...

    My iPad 2 is slower than my previous 4S or my current 5S but I usually just free-up some RAM occasionally by closing out apps in the background I'm not actively using.
    YMMV

    Also to add, i have upgraded ios7.1 on my wife's iPhone4 and even there i did not face any issues or lagging. May be restore option will solve your purpose.

    iOS 7.1 brought a new vigor to my iPad 2 that it hasn't had since 6.x. We still have a 4 that drives an alarm clock. It has a renewed life that seemed likely to kill it off before loading it with 7.1.
    YMMV

    Why the iPad 2 over the Air? That would be my first choice.

    As slow as it is, you wouldn't need to aim.

    I ready for reset. Darn it.
