iPad2 pages constantly reload and typing often lags

My iPad2 was running the original iOS and started getting "flaky" (the technical term?) so, last month, I downloaded 9.5.3 and, wait for it, things got worse.

Random slow page loads, but worst of all, pages disappear and I get the dreaded "a problem has occurred with this page and it is being reloaded". To torture myself, I watched a page do this over and over for 5 minutes.

I have run a reboot (500 times, minimum), reset, erased history and a number of other suggestions found on the interweb, to no avail.

The problem seems worse on pages with lots of ads and sidebars. My Times subscription has become useless since I can't read fast enough between reloads. Also, the problem happens during "reader view" too.

And another thing! Autofill doesn't work.

My iPad has become a brick.

Try another browser such as Chrome or Dolphin.

Try Settings --> General --> Reset --> Reset Settings (only settings!)


Thanks! I'm running Chrome now and have done the reset you suggest.

I'll research Dolphin and may give it a try.

The older iPads and iPhones turn into sloths when you install iOS 9.X.

I can vouch for that! Is it possible to download an older iOS? Like maybe dos


How about CP/M..!

Unfortunately, it is not possible to "downgrade" to a previous version of iOS. The only time you can do that is within a week or so of a new release. You can check out this article:

It's a bit dated but explains some of the mechanics. Essentially, Apple doesn't want you going back .
