    Tried to search the forum but came up empty.

    My iPad 3rd gen is on 9.3.4 right now. Has anyone put the iOS10 beta on it that could give some feedback on the experience. On my iPhone 6, the iOS10 beta seems snappy, possibly even more responsive than iOS9. But I know my iPad is much older hardware.

    Anyone that could relay their experience would be appreciated.

    The iPad 3 won't be compatible with iOS 10, iirc. I am not sure if there is a way to "force" the update onto a model which does not officially support it, but iOS 9 is as far your your iPad 3 will get.

    That's real strange, I'm using the latest iOS 10 beta on my iPad 3 right now. Sitting outside reading a Kindle book. Not having any issues.

    I can attest to it being quite slow and laggy. But it's an iPad 3, sooooo yeah.
