    So i was given hand me down 6s due to my old phone just dying and me not want to get new phone

    Smart phone has it uses i guess, Safari is ok and FF for ios feel naked with out ad blocker, I was looking for ublock origins for iOS but i dont see one, I tried ABP for iOS and it sucked it was missing lot ads and had no means to pick filters.

    I tried adguard, which seem pretty good and allow picking filters, but safari only allows 50000 filters, so i probably gona have to get FF installed again so long as it dont filter limit.

    Anyone have recommendations on ad blockers frees ones?? that similiar to ublock origin and just as good

    yah i thought about that, but my 66u is all ready pushed to it limites add this to it would just push it more, this solution also makes managing what is and isnt block alot harder



    I installed Firefox for iPhone/iOS and it seem to block quite a bit of ads that just out right show in safari, I have to check how much ads and how good it really is though, I might just use adguard if really needed

    Yea I've used 1blocker too, they all work pretty much the same for browsers but I wanted one to kill ads in apps too so went with the VPN method

    would be nice to kill ads in apps, but i dont really have apps that have ads, I hear apple has clamped down on vpn blockers and other ad blockers too, i just want something that similar to ublock or close to it, so when I do use phone for web stuff ads dont go a trigger my ocd about it

    I'm sticking with iOS 10.3.3 for the foreseeable future, iOS11 is a laggy PoS on the Mini 2

    But yea, anything like that 1Blocker will work fine for Safari ad blocking

    Happy with my S7, nice and smooth, no lag and plenty of power, but you should take back control from that OCD b1tch :D , iOS11 was far from ready when released and only just starting to settle down for "some" devices now with the latest updates

    Apple should start signing iOS 10.3.3 for older devices again, iOS 11 makes them horrible to use

    my iPod is on 11.2.x and it doesn't lag at all....lol. It is an iPod though, so it's unlikely to ever lag since it can't do much anyway.

    It makes the Mini 2 a lag fest, I only tested the last beta of iOS11 before restoring 10.3.3. but have been keeping up with the poor feckers who are stuck on 11.x.x with the mini 2 and it's not getting much better

    Yea I heard about that, apparently it's when the battery starts losing capacity, they slow the device down to have longer battery life, replacing the battery brought the devices back up to full speed as shown with benchmarks

    Fair enough, but there should be a toggle to allow you to choose if it does this or not, would be handy when you needed more battery, but a PITA if you were in the house and wanted more performance
