    Hi. I wanted to know if iOS 7 is stable enough so I can install on my iPad? I know there will be some bugs.

    I'm running it on my iPad 3 and it's extremely stable. I own 2 iPads and the other runs ios6. Aside from a few glitches it's running right along side the other no problems at all.

    Why is iOS 7 not stable for you?

    ----------

    Okay. Thanks for the response. Did you upgrade your iPad 3 using the shift/option+update or shift/option+restore method?

    I use iOS7 on my iPad 3 and its ok. Its definitely not as fast as iOS6, but hey its still a beta. There are times when it stutters or will respring but as long as you don't mind that, then go for it. It doesn't bother me too much to give up iOS7 all together :p

    Does the messages app crashes on iOS 7 for you? Did you restore to ios 7 or update? I recently downgraded to iOS 6 from iOS 7 and would like to upgrade again.

    I have installed iOS 7 on my iPad mini and it's working fine, considering this is the first version available for iPad. Don't expect the smoothness and swiftness as in iOS 6 of course. Beta is beta. But yes. It's working and you could use it! :)

    Does your iPad get warmer on iOS 7 than on iOS 6? I have heard it does.

    I haven't noticed it getting warm at all. I've been watching HBO Go for multiple hours on end and it doesn't get any warmer than it ever did on iOS6

    I have iOS 7 beta 2 on my iPad 3. I find it quite stable, except for the occasional random restart. No lags, unlike what I see on the iPhone 4.

    I've found it extremely unstable on my iPad 4, I have frequent restarts. I installed it using the option+update method. However I do like iOS 7 a lot so not been tempted to go back to 6. It's definitely not completely stable so it depends on whether you can live with the fact it might crash randomly a couple times a day or not. If you aren't used to running betas I wouldn't recommend installing it because it is nowhere near as stable as say iOS 6 betas which were solid as a rock, the fact iOS 7 is a major overhaul means there is a lot more bugs and instability than normal.

    I use it daily and it's great. But it crashes about twice a day for me. The pros out way the cons for me though

    I found it a bit slow and laggy compared to iOS 6, so I rolled back. iPad 4.

    It's extremely slow on my iPad mini that I'm using as the test device. So much so, that I went back to iOS 6, and will see what the next beta brings.
    It makes you appreciate just how smooth iOS 6 actually is.
    Once iOS 7 is as smooth as that, it's gonna be spectacular.

    I installed it on my iPad 2 and it works perfect. No reason to remove it at present. I installed Beta 1 and 2 on my iPhone 4 but had to roll back to 6.1.3, due to freezing/resetting issues.

    I'm surprised seeing how the iPad 2 and iPhone 4 run on the same processor.

    I find it useable, but avoid using the multitasking switcher. The first time I use it, it's fine. The second time, whenever I select a new app from multitasking, it crashes the iPad. Also the keyboard is laggy, but only the iOS 7 keyboard. Apps like Tweetbot that use the old keyboard work just fine.

    I'd say its useable but very rough around the edges.

    - ios7 keyboard lags really really badly
    - rotation lags and sometimes displays the status bar on the side rather then the top
    - music crashes in landscape when viewing composers
    - non apple apps don't seem to use the ios7 menu/dialogue items like they do on the iPhone version
    - multi task switcher lags when closing more then one item at a time
    - lots of animations seem to lag
    - lost wifi connection randomly a few times
    - settings app lags and sometimes the toggle options will not change unless I close and reopen settings
    - I don't seem to have the option to use airdrop

    Also I'm still confused as to why apps like weather, calculator, voice memos and passbooks are not included.

    This is all on an iPad 3

    I don't experience over half of the problems on my iPad 4. Also, the iPad 3 doesn't support AirDrop. AirDrop supports the iPod touch 5, iPad mini, iPad 4 and iPhone 5.
