    Has the new file system improved the overall response of the Air 2013 model? I'm just curious how the A7 is fairing 3 years later.

    I've seen no dropoff...granted I haven't used the file system specifically

    Thats good I was curious since I see a fair amount of people complainging of Air perfromance with the non X proccesor. It seems like the new APFS filesystem for the OS removes a rather large storage bottleneck.

    Same here on PB4 - before I decided to join the beta there were a lot of hiccups and stutters (relatively speaking, of course). But on 10.3 it feels somehow snappier, excluding app loading times. I like what I'm seeing, still upgrading to an iPad Pro Series 2 ;)

    I've noticed no difference with my daily IPP9.7, nor my testing iPad Air2.

    That's because your devices both are sorta over the hump of raw processing power required to not be smooth. I'm honestly thinking ios 11 will be the same or slightly better on my Air 2 if they eliminate all the 32 bit crap

    Is there any 32-bit stuff left in iOS? As far as I know, there are 32-bit apps there which trigger a popup for the user, but not in iOS itself...

    But isn't there a 32-bit and a 64-bit version for each machine? I can't imagine they'd willingly mix things up, there's a reason for, let's say, Windows 32/64 bit ;)

    Still by eliminating 32 bit entirely I'm sure they'll be able to further optimize 64bit, do I expect my Air 2 to have improved performance from iOS 10 no but I'd atleast expect the same considering so far it's been that way and now it can only be more optimized than it's ever been.
