    iOS 7 beta on my iPad 3 wouldn't even let me power my iPad on.

    A little animation lag but that's it. Been using it heavily since Monday and I don't have an showstopper issues.

    Its working ok on my 3. Its def slower then 6 at this point tho in the beta. Also having to enter my Apple ID more then I should. As well as having My wi-fi quit working now and then and then being unable to rejoin until I reboot. Im sure it will improve

    I love it on my iPhone 5 but it's currently abysmal on the iPad 3.

    I love it in my iPad 3. It's a bit laggy but I love how it looks on the iPad.

    Its not bad. I have the wifi issue mentioned above, had it freeze in safari which required a restart to fix, and can't click the area directly below the address bar (its like there should be a favorites bar there).

    A few apps don't work but thats not necessarily beta related, just that the apps need to be updated to work with the new iOS.

    I turned Parallax off and I noticed a considerable performance increase on my iPad 3rd ten

    No, Face Time didn't work on mine either. ios7 on iPad3 is not good at all. It needs much improvement before it's ready to use on a daily basis.

    I've restored mine back to 6.1.3 for now...

    I seem to have the same issues here. The system runs slow, especially typing. Gets a lot of lag as I am typing. Also losing wifi every so often. Had the entire iPad freeze a couple times as well and show nothing but the background screen. Required a hard restart.

    People worrying about lag: performance is always very sticky in iOS betas. I'd sit tight, and expect huge leaps and bounds in performance to be made in b3, 4, etc.

    I wouldn't get annoyed about performance until the GM.

    Wifi suddenly shut down and I had to reboot, as well as animations can be choppy and some crashes. One last issue is I have to enter iCloud password every time I open it. Can't complain about all of this because that was to be expected of pre release software.

    Umm don't know what to say iPad 3 wifi only did a clean install of ios7 runs almost as smooth as ios6 did. I get the occasional glitch here and there a few 3rd party apps acting up other then that it's been great


    U have other issues then

    Betas have always had crappy battery life and other issues, so I expect that to be sorted. The aesthetics, I hope, will be sorted, as there's no guarantee that they will be.
