    So I have the iPPs and the Mini 4 iPad... but before I download iOS 10 on them (I'm using the Air as a guinea pig) I'm just curious if anyone has tried or knows if the A7 Air works well with it or is it slow and buggy? Thanks.
    :)

    Installed on my Air 1. You know that horrible lag in iOS 9 when you accidentally invoke slide over? That's been seriously reduced. Isn't gone completely, but it isn't anywhere near as bad as iOS 9 was.

    Everything else seems normal, haven't run into any slow downs or anything.

    I updated my Air last night - I honestly have been looking at new ones because of how slow it seems to operate lately. I even wiped it clean and noticed it was still running slow.

    I have not used iOS10 yet on my Air - I will report back in later today and give an update; but this is great to hear.

    Does it perform any better? I couldn't stand using my iPad mini 2 on iOS 9, so I finally upgraded to the iPad mini 4.

    its working great for me. maybe a split second freeze every no and again, but not anything that hurts anything
    I wouldn't sayit preforms better or worse. iOS 10 has a lot more stuff and the iPad Air 1 is keeping up just fine.

    I installed it on the Air... and wow, it works great *knock on wood* I may actually put it on my other iPads. :)

    I installed on my Air 1 and it's definitely an improvement over iOS 9. I also have an Air 2. There's a difference but it's minimal and you have to look hard to see it. I'm pleasantly surprised!

    It was working great for the first day for me, but for the past several hours it's been lagging a bit when typing in Notes. :/

    Ios10 on the air 1 is fantastic. What a great processor in the 5s and iPad Air!

    I updated my iPad Air (1) and it seems OK. One question I do have though; when my iPad is in landscape orientation and I press the home button, is the time and date supposed to be offset all the way to the left? I'm not sure if this is a feature or a bug.

    Pretty sure that's intentional. Looks better, in my opinion. Makes the wallpaper stand out more.

    Looks good, more natural, not so forced in terms of the design language.

    Yes, that is how it looks. It's intentional. My original Air is doing very well on iOS 10.

    Few, expect the infuriating new behavior that forces one to press the Home button to display the passcode screen, even with a smart cover.

    Well, there is a setting for the home button behaviour. I posted in numerous threads, I will do so here, just for you:

    I can't complain how iOS 10 runs on my mini 2. It's a bit better than iOS 9 so I'm pretty happy.

    If you refer to the "Rest to unlock" setting, Apple has not provided a method in iOS 10 to restore the previous behavior on devices that lack Touch ID.

    I guess I need to point out that the subject of this topic, "Any issues with iOS 10 on first iPad Air?" does not have Touch ID, just for you.

    Runs PHENOMENALLY on my iPad Air 1.

    Used to have all sorts of lag and stutter throughout OS and Airdrop didn't work on iOS 9 (after clean install and restore from icloud). iOS 10 solved all those issues so rarely have stutter on keyboard, multitask, notification center, and overall OS seems faster. Btw didn't clean install iOS 10.

    Just plugged in iPad at 5% and had 19hrs usage and 76hrs standby (including streaming full length movie, although lot of the other time was using iBooks/GoodReader).

    Only thing not crazy about is getting rid of slide to unlock since still find that a little easier, but still worth upgrading 100%.

    Yeah iOS 10 is more about polish than anything, although messages got a huge upgrade.

    I only have strange issues with widgets, but otherwise performance across devices feels really good, although I suspect it's mostly a perception due to vastly improved animation algorithms throughout the OS.
