    Works ok for me - maybe a touch slower than iOS 7 but not bad considering it's an older processor

    I see you had some others give feedback in the iOS 8 thread. Did you update yet?!?

    Mine is not noticeably slower than it was with iOS 7. No issues to speak of.

    I updated to iOS 8 but I don't see any changes. Can anyone tell me what you can see as far as how iOS 8 works on original iPad?

    My wife has a Mini (non-retina) and has not complained about anything so far in iOS 8. I used it briefly after the update and it seemed on par with iOS 7. I can't say if battery life is better or not.

    I updated my original iPad mini to iOS 8. Battery seems to be about the same as before. I have noticed that a few apps seem to take a bit longer to load, but other than that, no problems.

    Mine seems quite laggy compared to how things worked on 7.

    I updated my iPad mini to iOS 8.0.2 everything going well. Battery improved . Only one app to take a bit longer to load. Really happy with my Ipad mini and IPhone 4 S, waiting a couple months to buy iPhone unlocked from Verizon.

    I would suggest not to update iPad mini (1st gen) with iOS 8. I am regretting my decision

    It's slow and laggy!

    Mine was okay at first but has gotten considerably slower as the days have gone on. That, and it feels slower because my 6 Plus is so zippy. Poor old Mini. I can't bring myself to get rid of it, though.

    Keep us posted as I am considering updating my original mini to be able to use the GoPro app which requires 7.1 or higher.

    Perhaps it was just a learning curve for the Mini. Not sure. iOS 8 still isn't what I'd call "zippy" but it is better than it was at first. The Facebook app is the slowest thing right now.

    Ah, ok. That explains a lot. I haven't had/used Facebook in over 2 years.

    Turning on "reduce motion" helps a lot. I think the parallax effect was too much for the Mini's processor.

    The 8.1 update threads say some devices are more snappy. Mostly phones but might be worth a shot. I will do mine tonight.

    yeah...my Mini 1 does seem more snappy with 8.1. Not a ton, but enough that I feel like it is "back to normal".

    I updated two days ago and love it.. This coming from having it jail broke. The only app that seems sluggish is Facebook. Everything else seems to run fine. There are things I do miss about my jailbreak, particularly the control panel, it I'm getting used to it. My 4s is and will stay on 7.0.6 and jail broke until the 8.1 jailbreak is released.
