Affected my iPad also but thought it might be that I have an iPad 2 as I was waiting for the iPad Air 2 to be released.  Let's hope this update helps as you say.

I'll wait for the early adopters to report back before I recommend it to anyone in our household......

I agree so far so good. 

 

Even my iPhone 6 is looking faster on WiFi.

 

Fingers crossed.

 

Good to have Camera Roll back too.
