Safari lags for a second or so when you open it on the iPad 2 under iOS 8.1. However, after that it is much smoother than it was on 7. 8.02 was similar to 8.1, but since I kept losing my 3g connection I don't like to talk about it.
Not really.. For me the big featured of iCloud Drive were being able to open files between Apps. If this is supported in any of the iwork Apps they have done an outstanding job of hiding it and striking any mention of it from the help.
You missed the thing about "high-end" whereby the poster meant actual smart phones. Not the 750 million feature phones that registered as Android devices in the Play store. If you can break down the billion by Make and Model, we can talk.
Apple never told you that....To clarify:Steve Jobs may have once pointed out reasons why Apple did not think the larger phones was a good idea. The biggest reason was most people want to be able to operate the phone with one hand. The latest rumors suggest Apple may have found a software solution for that particular problem.No one from Apple ever told you what you want.
