    Default iOS 7 a bit slow on iPad 3

    I've noticed in settings when I am choosing wallpapers it takes a while for it to set. Anyone else having this problem? Also why can't I close newsstand with gesture

    Yes! Same issue here. Extremely long wait-times after selecting a wallpaper in iOS 7 on iPad 3. Typing on the keyboard is also laggy.

    Here's hoping we get an update soon.

    I was about to create the same thread. My iPad 3 Gen is working too slow on iOS 7. It is like I'm trying to Run Jelly Bean 4.2.2 on Samsung galaxy Ace or iOS 7 on iPhone 3gs. It is running too slow. I hope it gets okay after the update. Does anyone else know what to do?

    Same here. Wallpapers load very slowly, with as much as a 10-second lag after tapping an image. Keyboard is laggy, too.

    I think we just have to wait until an update is released.

    Yeah, I'm experiencing the same issue. I turned off Reduced Motion in Accessibility and it seems to help a bit.

    i have an iPad3 here and think it's ok. somewhere between iPad Mini (relatively smooth) and iPad2 (relatively scrappy). I doubt a fresh install is going to change a lot, just sit back and wait for the first minor updates coming in, probably happening soon enough.

    I have the same issue on my iPad 3. Wallpaper updates take a few seconds to change after I make my selection. This is really the only performance issue I have experienced so far.

    Is it a bug? Or a hardware limitation? Because in beta 6 had a better transparency

    Yeh, I got an iPad 3 - Loading the background is taking too long, I wish there was at least a confirmation like a blink of the button you just pushed to know that your touch was registered. Other then that, I notice a little hick-up when playing with shifting background and its an unpleasant skewing of the dynamic background a moment before it rotates. Tried most apps, all work great, so far.

    Right after install, I went into settings to see changes and etc. and found Bluetooth turned on - but there was no bluetooth logo in the right top corner near the clock. I've noticed that when turning Bluetooth on/off in Control Center there is no Bluetooth logo shows up in the corner near the clock. I'm not sure yet if it actually turns it on.

    Cant think of anything else yet. But overall opinion - I really think it's not 100% finished. Like the photo organization - works well, but design wise, meh. Same with albums - I liked how in iOS6 the photos were kinda like dropped in different angle, with iOS7 they're all aligned behind eachother, doesn't look so good - I think the design isnt finished.

    In iOS 6 it was a habit to swipe up with four fingers to access multitasking window, and it felt natural. With iOS7 you can do the same thing, but the way multitasking appears is not coherent with your gestures.

    But these are all design issues I have, the overall iOS7 feel is good. I'm hoping they're streamlining it (I heard iPads weren't going to get it right away) so we probably have the "too" early version. LOL.

    iPad 4 here and I'm having the wallpaper issue to a lesser extent. Takes a good 3 seconds...makes me think I didn't hit it right.

    What's troubling me more is a visually stuttery effect in iMessage; obviously not a huge deal but this thing ran butter smooth on iOS6.

    Also Safari. It crashed twice in a day and that's an extremely rare event on my iPad. The web pages seem to load a bit slower, too, which is troubling. Wi-fi only version.

    I didn't do a fresh install and I did it OTA. Makes me consider doing one when I update my 4S. I've never restored as new before.

    I noticed the lag yesterday, first day installed. Especially on the keyboard. But it seems much better today, although the wallpaper is a little slow. But All-in-all I really like it much better.

    Apple solved the battery issues on iPhone 5 and 4s on the iPhone but put the ipads on suffering ipad. They should take out the update for ipad too.

    On my ipad 3 I've noticed a lot of lag when going in landscape mode on the home menu
    Also with safari the experience is worse, you can't move around pages after you begin a movement in vertical. Looks like an android browser

    I have found my ipad less responsive since downloading iOS 7, but my main concern is recharging my ipad
    It took 12 hours to get the battery to 63%
    I have only had this trouble since upgrading it
    Is it a coincidence? Or is anyone else experiencing the same problem?

    Karen, my battery charging has been normal. My battery seems to be draining faster then usual but nothing that causes me to much alarm.

    My Ipad 3 is laggy since updating. I've also had it crash on me several times which rarely happened on 6. I hope a fix is coming soon. I really hope the 3 doesn't get left behind because they released the 4 so quickly after the 3 was released.
