    I'm considering upgrading from iOS 9 to iOS 10 on my 4th generation iPad but I rolled back the beta because the device was lagging. For example, there would be a delay when I typed. I've seen someone else mention this on here but I can't find the thread.

    What does anyone think about the update for this iPad ?

    IPad 4 is fine with iOS 10 . It's good . Update it

    I wouldn't advise to do that personally. It's not very good even on Air 1. Disabling transparency helps with the stuttering and general slowness but it's not very smooth experience.

    It's better than ios9 but far from being fast

    It's fine. My iPad 4 isn't any worse on iOS 10 than iOS 9. It's not as fast as an iPad Pro, but it runs well and the new features are worth it.

    Air 1 is always laggy and buggy .

    To me iOS 10.1 beta feels more fluid on my iPad 4 than iOS 10 did.
    It's still considerably slower than iOS 9 and you don't get all the good new features. But it runs solidly and that's what counts for me.

    Save for a few new bugs, I'm pretty happy with iOS 10 on iPad 4. Sometimes it even feels faster than iOS 9.

    I don't know why but IOS 10 makes me remember the good times of IOS 6,in terms of stability

    And speed, don't forget the speed of iOS 6!
    That's still unmatched, even using an iPhone 7 on iOS 10 doesn't come close to an iPhone 4s on iOS 6.

    I wonder if Apple really spent much time on tweaking the OS to work with this iPad.
    For one thing having no "Slide to Open" on a non-Touch ID device is just stupid. It's fine on my 6s, dumb on the iPad 4.

    Then there are UI things like Control Center. This is just a terrible waste of space.
    Why take out the volume controls etc. and leave so much room and make certain buttons larger? Did someone really chime in at a design meeting and say "wow intern, this is a great idea! Those AirDrop and AirPlay buttons are large enough to smack with the palm of your hand"

    And it confuses me why it takes a year to have decisions like this addressed and/or changed. Did it really take a year to make such a boneheaded choice in the first place? This was a well thought out design solution?

    This reminds me of how incredibly stupid Newsstand looked when iOS 7 was released. Big frickin' gradated bars. Oooh such nuance. Every time I looked at that or this new Control Center I wonder what the hell is going on in the Apple design department.

    The IPad Air 1 doesn't have Touch ID either .

    It's really boring to press the home button to unlock the device
    I have an IPad 4 on iOS 10. And it's really annoying to click the home button to unlock it

    It's a device with a far too low amount of ram. And doesn't have an AX processor.
    Was laggy and buggy on 7.0 and has been laggy on buggy since 8.0. Only good release for the first air was 7.1.
