    hi guy, just wondering if anyone else has really severe occasional lag when using 9.3 on an iPad Air 2. I mainly notice it after quitting an application and going back to the home screen. If after quitting I swipe to another page of apps, the animation rally stutters. Same thing if I try to open a folder after quitting an app.

    Other than that, performance seems better than on 9.2 although in 9.2.1 I didn't experience this lag with swiping/opening folders.

    I saw occasionally severe lag on beta4 but beta5 seems to be better for me. That said, I haven't spent a lot of time on beta5 on my iPad Air 2 since I updated it last night.

    Well my mini 2 has developed some MAJOR single "chops" when going in and out of apps as of beta 5. Everything is still very smooth and quick in comparison to 9.2.1 but every once and a great while I will open/close an app and mid animation it will "hiccup", stop mid animation for a good half second or so (pretty significant considering the entire animation is about that speed..) Sometimes the entire animation is almost skipped.

    I have seen this behavior on iPhone 4S's and such running iOS 9, or other very, very old devices. Very weird.

    I get this as well on iPhone and iPad. Doesn't happen often but it sure sticks out. Other than that it's running really smooth.

    I don't like it, as there is stutter and occasional lag. I put it back on 9.2.1

    Dang I would have imagined that the Air 2 would be doing excellent on 9.3, as my iPad mini 2 is doing great now in comparison to 9.2.1.

    Well 9.3 is in Beta, so it may just require fine tuning.
