The device is too old, CPU slower than the recent iPad have - for iOS 11 just can runs smoothly,
Even after all these years it's still a great tablet. Major issues with iOS 11 however, as Apple is doing clearly no testing on the mini 2 yet roll those updates to the device. It's made it insanely buggy and slow, Notes app literally doesn't work anymore. My advice for iPad mini 2 users is to NOT update to iOS 11 because Apple's irresponsibly not optimizing it for the hardware. And it never got true multi-tasking despite being capable of it (as proven by jailbreak apps). The speakers are also only on one side, so you don't get the stereo sound you would with newer iPad models. Overall - still a good tablet in 2017, but far from the best experience.
IÂ’m on iOS 11 beta right now and i can say that this update is very nice. Everything is change, the only thing i hate about this update is that it makes my ipad mini 2 laggy. I donÂ’t have any idea why is it, maybe beacuse itÂ’s still on beta or what..? But IÂ’m still hoping apple will fix this issue in the coming updates..... For those who wants to try the new iOS 11 update just stick with your iOS 10 and wait for the final and stable build.
sun8390, 26 Jun 2017I'm happy, but I doubt the performance would be good.True. But this will atleast save the device for another year.

Rocker, 09 May 2017But whether it will get iOS 11 or not?iOS 11 is rumored to be supported by 64-bit devices only. Apple iPad Mini 2 is a 64-bit device
I love my ipad cellular, I am not using for call for I have my mobile for calling, the only thing is, I can use nano sim for my internet, and anywhere I would be I can use for my application in social medias......

bob, 05 Apr 2017i bought iPad mini 2 six months back, now Apple has already discontinued it. But the device is... moreSame thing, bought my 1st iPad as iPad Mini 2 and now very shallow hopes of an OS update. Any guesses?
i bought iPad mini 2 six months back, now Apple has already discontinued it. But the device is packed with a 64bit chip, any hopes of receiving iOS 11 or it's End of Days for the device?
rocker, 22 Mar 2017iPad Mini 2 discontinued. But will it get iOS 11 or be left at iOS 10.x?iPad mini has a 64bits processor so it should get iOS 11.. but it will most probably be the last one. Apple tends to support devices for around 4 to 5 years.
