Does iPad Pro solve these two annoying problems?

    I am wondering if upgrading from an iPad Air 2 to iPad Pro 9.7 (or 12.1 for that matter) will solve these annoying issues - I suspect problem 2 no, but possible number 1?

    1. When swiping back a page in Safari the previous page loads instantly. However, there is a slight pause before you can interact with the page e.g. Scrolling. I suspect it's loading a bitmap screenshot of the page to give the illusion of loading quickly.


    2. Sometimes when opening safari the animation is not smooth with the text in the bookmark bar. The text jumps down from the top of the page as if it is a separate entity.

    I do not experience those issues on my 64GB iPad Air 2 or my 128GB iPad Pro 12.1. Both devices have ample free space -- so perhaps that's a factor. What is the storage capacity of your iPAD Air 2?

    It's 64gb using 11gb. I have the same issue with my 6s.

    Swipe back and immediately try to scroll...

    I just checked this on my 6S. I initially observed the issue then tried with several different websites to try and replicate. What I found is that the issue occurs only with websites with heavy pages. For example, I notice it swiping back to Mac Stories (which features a lot of images/rich content) but don't notice it swiping back to Daring Fireball (Gruber is high on minimalism and fast page load speeds).

    Do you still see the issue swiping back to Daring Fireball (http://daringfireball.net)?

    Do you have the same issue with a third party browser like Chrome?

    It does seem better with daring firewall. I think the same issue happens on my MacBook

    I only use safari

    I have iPad Pro 9.7 and have the safari swipe back issue. I notice on all my IOS devices.
    I even notice this in Safari on OSX.

    Huh? This is a UI-wide issue. Perhaps you haven't noticed it (and that's great!) but I believe it's on every iOS device.

    I upgraded from Air 2 to 9.7 Pro. I do notice a slight increase in responsiveness with doing forward/backward in Safari. I just loaded The Verge, and I can instantly begin scrolling after swiping back. What made a huge difference in this is installing an ad blocker. Even on the Air 2 I could begin interacting with the page immediately after swiping back, after installing an ad blocker.

    Stock safari on the Pro is in dire need of an optimisation. It jerks and slows like buggery

    for #1: This has been an ongoing issue if you can call it an issue since iPhone 4. But on the iPhone you don't experience this problem at all. It's only on the iPads that you do and on my iPad Pro 12.9" LTE model only when there is some purging of memory by iOS does I get that tiny bit of lag. It's noticeable but not annoyingly bad like the previous generation of iPads.

    On my android devices multitasking doesn't slow down one single bit it's instantaneously switching between windows. This goes for samsung Tab S2 as well even with that lowly processor it doesn't do what iOS on iPad does.

    My biggest issue is that when you switch apps with 4 finger swiping it won't actually load the app just yet there is a slight delay before you can interact with the app you just switched over to. It's much better on the iPad pro but on my Air and even Air 2 there is this slight delay.

    THE BIGGEST issue with safari on iOS is the fact on my 12.9" model sometimes when scrolling a page half the page is missing - it is until the scrolling stops then the page will resume "loading" - i think it's just a caching issue but it's quite bothersome and this is just the way iOS manages resources.

    This has been happening since iOS 9. It's actually been happening more frequently on my iPP 9.7 than it did on my Air 2. It's extremely annoying. To fix it (temporarily, until it starts again) simply close safari and reopen.

    Safari also loads my pages in pieces when I start to scroll down, highly frustrating and closing safari doesn't fix this for me.

    Does anybody else recommend another browser that doesn't do this?

    Thanks.

    I believe Google Chrome on iOS doesn't have this issue. I have to admit it's puzzling how Apple's software engineers can't seem to figure out a smooth implementation of mobile Safari.

    I've never had an issue with the quality of Apple hardware, but I often feel Apple should fire and hire better software engineers.

    I stopped getting that pause in a recent version of iOS. But more importantly for me, no reloading when switching tabs on the iPad Pro jumbo!

    I'd highly recommend going into an Apple Store or retailer and trying for yourself . I suspect people on here that say they are not experiencing these issues do not understand what it is exactly you are trying to explain.
