    In iOS 7.1, Control Center and Notification Center have a low framerate when you slide them down or up (or move between panes) when opened from the lock screen. Is this fixed in iOS 8?

    Probably just your device. Everything looks butter smooth on my iPhone 5c running iOS 7.1.1

    iPhone 5c has the same issue. Just try it, it's way smoother unlocked than locked.

    Is this specific to some devices ? I just tested on an iPad 2 and do not notice any difference.

    It's more pronounced on a smaller screen.

    Pretty sure this is fixed, then. : ) The animation for swiping between Today and Notifications, as well as sliding left on a notification to dismiss it is buttery smooth whether my iPhone 5 is locked or unlocked.

    EDIT: I'm on iOS 8 Beta 1, if that wasn't clear!

    Hmm...I'm not running iOS 8 but don't notice this on my 5S.

    Can you please check the swiping up/down of control center / notification center on the lockscreen as well? That is the laggy part.

    No offense, but could you try to compare the performance from the lock screen (locked) and from the home screen (unlocked)?

    The different is not huge, so it could be easy to mistake low performance for 'buttery smooth' when you don't compare it with actual buttery smooth animations. ;)

    That also seems smooth both when locked and unlocked.

    I did compare both - not sure how you arrived at the conclusion that I didn't. Anyway, as far as I can tell, the animations are smooth in both the locked and unlocked state. I don't think I can really help beyond that.

    I just checked out the GM and the problem isn't fixed. Unbelievable.

    Control center on iPad Air is very choppy as is the pause before multitasking opens. If Apple cant figure out how to make these blurring effects be buttery smooth, they should come up with an alternate option, especially on iPads.

    Blurring is a very heavy task for even Photoshop on a desktop computer. Not sure why they though adding them ALL OVER the place on iPad was a good option while its pushing 3 million pixels around. Not even the new metal technology fixed this.
