Hi Michael,

So far I am a very happy new user of AdBlock on my Mac. I have an older IPad 2 that I would love to use your product. I know with the new IOS 9 update (which turned my IPad into a brick) the ability to use an ad blocking app was allowed. Unfortunately for me, after 8 hours of Apple tech trying to get my IPad to a usable state, I discovered that those new apps do not support an IPad 2. Do you have a product that will or is there one in development that can be used with Safari? Thank you.

    Hi AdBlock support team,

    I read the article but my question is about IOS 9 which does accept extensions on Safari (IPad)

    Hi Suzy,

    Apple decided that 32-bit architecture devices such as the iPhone 5 and older iPad 2 aren't fast enough to deliver a good customer experience with content blocking in iOS 9. This isn't a limitation with AdBlock, but iOS 9. It may also be Apple's way of encouraging its users to upgrade their devices. :)
