    I thought Beta2 was awful on the Ipad Mini. Made everything slower, animations were jerky, overall experience wasn't good so I went back to IOS6. Now with IOS7 Beta3 I'm wondering if anyone installed this on their ipad mini. If so how's it running compared to Beta2?

    So far much better, and looks a ton better two with the better/thicker fonts throughout. However the title/status bar font is still too small IMO. It is fine on the lock screen, but too small elsewhere. Seems more responsive, but only really have been able to work with it 10-15 minutes.

    Another Mini user here, and my experience is a lot, lot better too. I installed fresh and as a new iPad, however. I had gone back to iOS 6 too because of the horrible lag in the previous beta. I was hoping they'd improve the performance in this beta, because 7 just looks so good on the Mini. So far so good, a very fluid experience!

    So so soooo much better on my mini! Haven't had any crashes (yet) the lock screen is actually rotating like it should and not getting stuck in weird places... overall a very good update for us mini owners!

    Oh so much better. Much smoother. Animations are a lot better and Safari is much quicker. I'm so glad for the update lol

    My keyboard also doesn't lag, especially in Safari

    Hmm....I'll give beta 3 a shot on mine. I had to revert to iOS 6 after beta 2 kept crashing.

    A little better performance wise although oddly enough, it feels as if my iPhone 4s is a lot snappier even though they have the same processor.
