I posted earlier that I "upgraded" my iPad 2 and iPhone 4s to iOS 8.1. I wrote that the actual download and installation process went fine but that the added features of the latest mobile OS didn't do much for me. Ratchet forward to today. Now I'm ticked at Apple for the impact iOS 8 has had on the performance of my two devices. It is my humble opinion that Apple's brain trust must have known how much trouble the older processor in these devices would have with the latest OS. Response has become slow and jittery. Everything works but the joy has been taken out of the user interface. And, of course, I can't roll back to iOS 7. I deliberately waited for iOS 8.1 to avoid early bugs but the fact is, iOS 8 shouldn't have been made available for the iPad 2 and iPhone 4s. I can't help but think Apple said "You're still using those old machines? We'll have to give you a reason to upgrade." My question is... do I reward Apple for this kind of cynical thinking by upgrading to an iPad Air 2 and/or iPhone 6? The problem is, I really don't like Android for my phones or tablets (I've owned them). I have less of a problem with Windows (my wife has Windows on her tablet and phone) but really don't like that OS as much as I do Apple, either. I'm annoyed now so my thinking is suspect. Suggestions are welcome.
