    I've had iOS 10 for a while on my iPad and iPhone, but for some reason my iPad has way more bugs than my iPhone. The bugs are only in the UI though. When I get multiple notifications, they all overlap each other and I can't even read what they say sometimes. When I swipe to the left of the home screen, the search doesn't show up, and it's just a blank page. In the lock screen, sometimes when swiping to the widgets area will cause them to be halfway on the screen and they won't be interactable. Do any of these things happen to anybody else?

    I have rotation bugs, notifications sticking on screen, choppiness in widgets screen, sometimes Split view just doesn't open when swiping from right. Yes, I agree 10 is buggier on iPad (have Air 2) than on iPhone 6s.

    I have the same devices as you do, iPad Air 2, and iPhone 6s, and I had the iOS 10 beta on my 6s which was still less buggy than my Air 2 on the official release.

    I've had the weird widget position thing you describe occasionally on my iPP 9.7. A bit irritating.

    Thanks for raising this up. I guess upgrading to iOS10 on my iPad Mini 4 is not worth it.

    I want to upgrade my iPhone SE but I only like the "wake to raise" feature so I can save the number of times I have to press Home & Power Button. Is it still worth it upgrade my iPhone SE to iOS10?

    Yeah, my iPhone 6s is fine on iOS 10. Raise to wake is also on the iPhone SE and its really useful.

    ios10 is great on the SE BUT the left hand arrow does not work in messages to get out of the message. You have to swipe. Bit upsetting having bugs as the SE is my wife's brand new phone and something as damn simple as messages isn't as fluid as before.

    Looks like a reason to upgrade. I am the type of user that hates upgrades a lot unless there is something really appealing in the newer version.

    Any other reason why I want to upgrade to iOS10 for iPhone SE?

    That Message lost some function actually does not really bother me. I use whatsapp more than Message nowadays.

    The latest official iOS10 version I suppose? I haven't upgraded my iPad mini2, iPad Air 2 and iPhone 5s. Only my wife updated her iPhone 5s to iOS10.

    The ui of ios10 is by far the worst apple have done in a long time. I regret updating my ipad air 2.

    Last night I read a lot of people's comments about these type of issues and I have been posting I noticed some but that it's in general pretty okay. So I spent about a full hour documenting it with feedback app.

    There are quite a few more on the iPad than I have on the iPhone, and some of those I can reproduce, while others seem to be depending on screen orientation or the app in use.

    The log files when something goes wrong are pretty small, hardly useful, or actually pretty big showing break points in the framework reporting back all sorts of stuff.

    The orientation bug is my biggest issue, and has been there since the first public beta. There are other apps in the background causing it to 'lock' when it shouldn't. I can't tell if they are using older framework, are one of those incompatible apps, or just exported as universal apps. I haven't been able to really narrow it down.

    The facetime bugs I had people report I have been able to test as well. I have an iPad Air 2 that we left on for 6, 12, and eventually 24 hours. And almost right on the money at 24 hours the sound starts cutting off on the other end. They can hear me, and I can't hear them. They have to unplug and plug back in to get the driver to wake up again.
    Additionally, after about 6 hours the screen suddenly starts deciding randomly that it needs to darken up, causing it to 'freeze'. On video call this means you have to keep the device moving and active to avoid that. It thinks it has to safe power. Even though it's connected to a wall socket, and it has been fine the first 6 hours. now of course, people might not really facetime that long constantly, but i do. With my bad eyes it's how i stay in touch with friends, sorta like a digital room mate. Plus, this time, pure testing.

    The widgets have their own sort of UI issues, the ones reported in this thread are quite consistent. Well, they break more frequently visually than they should. The UI lag it causes shows the events are starting too quick and then lag when they try to update cache or whatever it is. If that happens in the middle of a touch action like a swipe, it hangs on the edge of the screen and becomes unresponsive. On the phone this doesn't happen, to me, but it does in a way, it just doesn't show anything and after a very quick pause it continues to slide and widgets appear. Happens once a day-ish.

    My feedback app is updated with logs and screenshots and much more detailed explanations. But the first 12 issues were easy too add. Shame. So beta-feeling-ish. A lot of the feedback reports from ios9 and ios10 beta period still are unresolved in 10.1 it seems, I re-submitted them for 10.1, with updated information.

    It is a lot of work and very time consuming to read comments and figure things out, and try to understand how it all works and what not. I am clearly amateur, but I want a good OS, but I hope it is all worth it. And more people do it.

    Downgrade. It's as simple as pie. And do it quick. Apple is still signing 9.3.5 as of today 10/15.

    On an Air 2 I've had rotation issues and opening from lock sometimes it's like it doesn't read the fingerprint right away or something.

    For me I notice it when I'm responding to a text. Sometimes the text box at the bottom won't be there and I have to force quit and reopen. And sometimes with messenger it doesn't show the icons at the bottom so I can't see all the active people online.

    Very true, it's a buggy version. Yet I do think Apple can fix it.

    I didn't really see any advantages of iOS 10 for the iPad to warrant an update. With that being said, I tried it out and I didn't like it. The bugs are definitely there and there's no denying that.

    Do you use widgets that have been updated for iOS10?
