I haven't updated my iPad 3 and I'm wondering how it runs w/ iOS 8. Anyone??
Avoir ios8 for the momen on ipad3
Slow, lags ...
I was reluctant but bit the bullet one that pesky update flag finally appeared on the settings app and tbh it's not much slower than 7.1.2 was. I updated via iTunes as I didn't have enough free space for OTA.
Sure it's slow compared to my 6 but still entirely usable.
I'm holding out for iOS 8.1 before upgrading iPad 4 and Mini-R from iOS 7.1.2.
Some users report problems with 8.0.2 (which I'm not seeing on iPhone 6.)
iOS 8 on my iPad 3 runs like ****. Its really sad
Yeah, performance (especially Safari) is really bad.
Do either of you think 8.1 will really make a difference? 7.1 made a big difference, but haven't heard about big performance gains from 8.1 beta users.
I don't know... Just cross your fingers! Cross the crap out of them!!!
Heh, I am. I've disabled transparency and reduced motion and it still lags. Safari loads slow, Reading List freezes,... I can't even swipe between 4 pages of apps without jittery animation! That is unacceptable!
I upgraded my iPad 4 & Mini-R to iOS 7.1.2 on the day before Apple released the downloads for iOS 8, and only because I knew if I didn't, they'd both be stuck on iOS 6 or would only be able to upgrade directly to iOS 8. That said, both are quite happy running iOS 7.1.2 (along with an iPhone 5) but if I decide to upgrade, I'd rather it be to iOS 8.1 (personal choice because I don't want to give up Camera Roll, which iOS 8.1 brings back.)
My iPhone 6 is running iOS 8.0.2 and is smooth and trouble-free, but when iOS 8.1 is released I'll upgrade (for Camera Roll) in a day or two, after seeing how it goes for the Early Guys.
I know! Sadly, this is one of the features I'm most excited about! That's kind of sad, isn't it?
What's sad is when features that I use a lot are removed & replaced with things that are less convenient for me, costing me time and teeth-grinding. At least this time they're giving back. YAY!
I don't know why you all care, the ipad 3 was crap from the beginning
I disagree, it was completely smooth with iOS5 and 6.
With iOS 7.1, it's really correct except some minor lags.
With iOS 8.0.2, lags everywhere.
Restore + setup as new doesn't fix the lags for me.
iOS 8 lags on EVERYTHING!!!
Also the iPad 3 was compromised technically. It barely had the power to drive a Retina display and benchmarks lower than the 2. The iPad 4 was what the 3 should have been.
There is a slight lag on the iPad 4 on ios8, so there isn't a chance in hell I'm going to upgrade the ipad 3.
Yes A6 devices don't run iOS 8 amazingly... TBH they have the power to, Apple needed to have iOS 8 in beta for longer to get optimised for older devices.
I have the iPad 3 with 8.1 on it and it runs better than 8.0.2, but it's still laggy. Even with all the 'extras' turned off (Reduce Motion, turning off some backgrounds apps,etc). It's slow to unlock, and typing is a pain as it'll hang up and you won't know if you're typing correctly.
How is this helpful?
Sorry, I was a little bit to mean. Some products just don't deserve to be talked bad like the ipad 2 or the ipad 4, they are good but the ipad 3 was like a prototype, it was laggy even on ios 5 while playing some games and it was choppy when opening folders. Like the iphone 4, the ipad 3 is bad and you can't do anything about it. These 2 products were never very good.
I have to disagree about the iPhone 4. I happily used mine for 2 years and then passed it along to my son in 2012 (when I upgraded to iPhone 5), and he is still using it. I'll pass my iPhone 5 on to him next month because I upgraded to iPhone 6 on Launch Day; I will be bringing the iPhone 4 back home.
Maybe you were happy, I hated that phone, now I gave it to my dad and downgraded it to 4.3.5, it's a nightmare.
I'm sorry. Sounds like you got a dud. 3 other family members used iP4 successfully and one kid still uses it as an iPod Touch (no SIM.)
I have two iPad 3, one has been updated to iOS 8.02, and it is extremely slow. The another keeps its 7.1.2, and I will never update it anymore. Is there any possibility to rollback it to iOS 7, even with jailbreak?
I regret updating my iPad 3 to ios8 ... It's noticeably slower without any real useful features for me
