I never even checked into the computer/tablets threads which means I'm really frustrated and I'm about to throw away my IPad that I really loved ad now start to love to hate!

How can a company that was making such a nice and easy useable product go so downhill.

Most people who were as stupid as me to get the software update hate it and some don't even want to buy a new iPhone unless it has the old software on it.

The annoying pop up was the first annoying thing that happened a few updates ago and I couldn't get rid of it.

The last update seems to be a little bit better but since these updates my iPad will freeze up and some websites hardly work.

I'm very sad that the tablet I really loved to use is now mostly laying on a desk and not something I want to use a lot to avoid getting annoyed after a long day and what I used to do was enjoying using the iPad to check some websites that were relaxing for me and not about work so much.

That time is over and I'm considering to buy a new iPad but not an apple product.

You mean a few. Hardly MOST.

There is always a way to get rid of it. Apple never forces you to update. Never. Not once.
Unlike some Android devices which give you 3 notices before forcing the upgrade on you. (A practice many have since stopped thankfully... looks at Motorola...)

Backup your iPad with iTunes on your PC.
Do a factory reset.
Does it run better? If so, there is probably an app on your tab that doesn't like iOS8. If it doesn't run better...
well...
restore it from iTUnes (nothing lost) if you want or go buy a Galaxy.

Every where i look online, except for your post ^ is stating that you can't go back to the previous well working version.

I don't think it is a few people but a lot of people since there are so many statements online about the issues. Just in my family alone out of 5, 3 have done the update and all 3 have issues and that I cludes myself.

It's too late to go back, but it's not too late to do a restore n your iPad. I had an iPad2 that was slow as molasses with iOs 8. I did the restore and it no runs almost as good as the prior version.

I didn't say you could go back.
I think you misread what I wrote.
"There is always a way to get rid of it"
I assume you thought I meant iOS8. No, I meant the nag screen that asks you to update

But you are right about iOS8 not running well on iPad2. Apple wants you to upgrade....

The iPad 2 is going in four years old. Mobile moves faster than traditional PCs. I dont know why you'd think the technically archaic iPad 2 would be optimal for iOS 8.

That's kind of Bentlebee's point point Emigrations: why did Apple think releasing iOS8 for that "archaic" (?!?!?!) iPad2 was a GOOD idea.

It's not like they said not to do it and people did anyway....

I have a new high tech laptop for work and for "fun or relaxing" times I use the old IPAD I have and was great to watch tv and surf around the net and use it for writing on this forum but now a lot of websites will make my screen freeze and it is becoming annoying.

If Apple thought that may cause me to buy a new one than they are wrong since I will buy a different brand.

Aside from that I haven't heard the CEO talk how to resolve the issues only that he is happy to come out of the closet and frankly I couldn't care about his sexual preferences since for me it is a business item and not about the CEo and his sexual happiness.

I'm glad he is happy but I'm no longer happy with my Apple product and the two are not related but I wish the CEO would address the issues that now many people seem to have and is the talk of many agents and friends and family who almost all either are happy not having download the update or are avoiding Apple products.

How much fun will that be for the CEO but I'm happy he is happy in his private life as I wish everyone to be happy.

iOS 8.1.1 has fixed almost all of the issues we had with iOS 8 on our iPad 2.

All I'm getting out of my iPad is a smoke trail... it's so blazing fast.

Air 2 128GB. Nice product.
