    It's shabby in comparison to the iPhone 5 version, albeit superficially. Laggy animations with gestures / rotation are my main bugbears.

    It's a bit disappointing that it's not delayed, to be honest. Yes, it's perfectly useable, but I cannot agree that the iPad 4 should be receiving a markedly sloppier rendition than iPhone 5. That's not how you'd experience iOS 6 on the same formats.

    Yep, the rotation animation on the home page is a joke. Very choppy. Also the music app is a joke. Sooooo much white space on the now playing screen. No little play arrow on the menu bar either.

    There's also a weird wallpaper bug that takes forever to set a wallpaper even on iPad 4. Then folders in the dock turn weird colors when you rotate.

    The ipad complaints are gonna come rollllling in come next week , big time.

    Yeah I don't even get why they're releasing iOS 7 for iPads, I feel like it could be a mini disaster. I'm expecting a huge wave of iPad and iPhone 4 complaints.

    Here are some screenshots of some very annoying things I've noticed.

    1. Hard to read fonts on certain wallpapers.
    2. Empty white space anyone? Music app, now playing on lock screen.
    3. Bizarre font size differences in music app.
    4. Folder bug in dock , really they missed this glaring bug too?
    5. Really I only get to see 3 apps in multitasking.
    6. 4 fingers up feel really odd now and laggy.

    I really love ios 7 on my phone but it's just not ready for prime time on ipad. Embarrassing for Apple.
