Has anyone tried beta 6 on the iPad? If so, is it any better than beta 5 (i.e.: doesn't lock up when using multi-touch gestures and randomly respiring all the time)?

Think these problems were only on the iPad 2 and 3.

The multi-touch gestures are fixed in beta 6 on my iPad 3rd gen.

What about the frosted glass effects that were missing from the iPad 2/3? Are they back now?

Open up some resource-intensive app, then try the pinch to homescreen a few times, then tell me it's fixed. (because it isn't)

Yeah multitasking gestures are still broken.

Damn, that was the one thing I wanted fixing. Here's to hoping theres a beta 7...

On my iPad 2, Springboard is restarting a LOT. There doesn't seem to be a pattern of when it restarts, it's just happening quite a bit.

What about the MOST important problem form Beta 5, the SLOW boot up?

That annoying bug where the device resprings when you open the Smart Cover (which started in beta 5) persists into beta 6. I filed a bug report.

Works maybe once or twice for me and then hard freeze. Did Apple only fix the 1 bug in Beta 6? It didn't seem like a life or death bug.

Overall it still feels exactly like Beta 5. Gestures broken still, if I go to change wallpaper there's super lag, Safari still sucks donkey balls with the random crashes.

The multi touch gestures still causes a springboard crash in beta 6. I would have figured that after a week of this, apple would have fixed it, instead of fixing an iTunes in the cloud bug.

iOS 7 will most likely come to iPad a month or so later after the iPhone public release. This happened with iOS 4 and multitasking. iPad users had to wait. They will hopefully take the time to perfect it in time for an October iPad refresh. As it stands now everything Ive seen shows its just not going to be ready in the next couple of weeks.

I don't think this will be the case. Seems pretty good to me.

Wait...people are having multi touch issues? I've been using beta 5 and haven't had a crash since like beta 3. It's quite good. But now I'm afraid of updating because I don't want to ruin a good thing.

I am using an iPad 2 and beta 5 was just as bad. I had to disable the multitasking gestures because I am so used to closing apps with 5 fingers that I was constantly getting the iPad in a state where I had to hard reboot the device.

All the people complaining here have iPad 3. As far as I know the newest iPad 4 doesnt have the issue.

I wouldn't be so sure, it's very buggy for a lot of people. Remember, the iPad iOS 7 beta 1 came later, and the iPhone version is the priority for the September 5S/5C release. The iPad version just has to be ready by October or whenever the new iPads ship.

Lucky you, on iPad 2/3 we are talking about ALL blurs, also things like control center etc. however iPad mini has those effects (remember, it has same hardware like iPad 2!)

Has anyone notice that Safari is less stable with Beta 6? Is this a known issue in the release notes? I never had crashing problems like this on beta 4 or 5 on my mini. Now it's crashing everywhere. Sucks because I really love the look of Safari in iOS 7, but Chrome itself is much more stable now BEFORE being iOS 7-updated. Go figure.
