    Look at this. Keyboard daemon crashing all over the place (you can see diagnostic logs in the second half of the video). Can't type in Safari. This is AFTER resetting settings and rebooting. Clean DFU install of GM with subsequent restore from backup.

    In addition to that, 4-finger pinch closing animation is jerky and glitchy. There's jerkiness all over the place. This is really sad for a flagship product.

    (Please wait for youtube to process/rotate the video)

    EDIT: I can't type ANYWHERE. Oh lord. Another DFU restore incoming, I need to use the iPad in an hour.

    It's solid but there are definite UI issues, ranging from keyboard lag (more noticeable if you're a good typist on iOS) to less than smooth UI transitions when rotating the device. And the 4 finger pinch to home animation is a definite issue. It's a different animation altogether to what you get when pressing the home button.

    Also, initial setup doesn't ask for regional settings/language. That's really weird. It DID do that on the iphone 5.

    Well spotted, come to think of it I was exactly the same.

    Out of curiosity was that on a restore or update? It didn't ask me to go through any setup either when i updated my phone but i think it does on restore? I may be wrong though.

    As I've stated in the original post, this was a clean DFU restore. You can't go cleaner than that :)

    Yeah, I had assumed the pinch animation would be fixed for the GM but it's as glitchy as ever. Horrible to look at.

    Iphone update went absolutely perfect.

    ipad 4... Where to start? Choppy animations, iTunes library went crazy with tracks in my albums not showing up in the right order which is driving me insane. All the remaining stuff people have reported, I'm experiencing as well.

    Why on earth did they release the ipad versions with so much problems???

    iPhone version isn't entirely free of problems. For example, when you unlock there is an annoying delay before you can do anything on the home screen (swipe between pages, access spotlight, etc.)

    There are also other random hitches and delays through the OS. This system definitely needed a bit more polish. It's probably just more noticeable on the iPad because of its bigger screen and 4x as many pixels.

    I think in the iphone case it's just they way they engineered the animation with a slight delay when the icons are almost in place. It doesn't seem to me like poor graphic performamce / optimisation which is definitely the case with the ipad 4.

    EDIT: also, when I'm trying to change the wallpaper and tap the one I want, there a good 5 second delay until the preview appears and another good 5 seconds after confirming.

    Would you advise me against updating from beta 6?

    I never ran beta 6 so I'm not sure. But there are definitely little-noticeable lags everywhere. Sometimes even in stuff as simple as changing the keyboard from letters to numbers/symbols section

    I noticed that too, on both an iPad 3 and an iPad 2. There are long delays during which there is no apparent response.

    And I agree that the animations are jerky. I was surprised that the iPad GMs were released yesterday. I thought the iPad betas were all so far from polished that they were clearly prioritizing the iPhone/iPod Touch versions and would finish up the iPad versions over the next month before the presumed iPad announcement.

    On the plus side, the most glaring iPad bugs such as the four-fingered swipe to close crashing the iPad were fixed.

    Try changing a background with an iPad 3 ... takes about 30-45 sec.

    You can DFU restore all you want — the problems are coming when you restore your backup, which puts you roughly in the same spot as you were beforehand.

    Do a DFU restore and set up as new. Put your iCloud settings in and manually set things back up. Unless you have an obscenely complicated setup, typing in a few passwords here and there and skimming through Settings tweaking things shouldn't take you much more than half an hour, including syncing your apps back. It's a pain, but once it's done, I can almost guarantee you that your problems will be gone. If they're not then, well, you can have your money back (ha). But I'm 92.5% sure they will be. The same advice goes for Macs. Wiping a hard drive and installing a clean system is no good at all if you restore a buggy Time Machine backup onto that.

    No it does not solve farm rate drop, slow animation, slow wallpaper change issue even without restore from back up. I set iPad 3 completely new and no backup restored. Still same thing.

    I'm having all the same problems as everyone else here. There's also a folder bug in the dock where rotating the device causes a weird color to the folder.

    Don't even get me going on the the music app. Sooooo much wasted space not only in the app but on the lock screen. Plus the font sizes are all over the place in music.

    Multitasking only shows us 3 apps?????? Really???. Size 140 font lock screen? It literally is a blown up ipod and not in a good way.
