    Has anyone else tried the public beta on 1st gen iPad air? For all the "stability" that was touted at the keynote, I'm very disappointed to see that the app switcher and safari are plagued by lag and jitteriness. Even if you turn off transparency and reduce motion, it's still not very pleasant. Anyone have a similar experience? Is this to be expected given it's a beta - although a public beta now... Any thoughts on whether there's a chance of it being smoothed out, historically-speaking with possibly other betas that were terrible with UI at this point?

    Yes, it's likely because of being in beta.

    The only things that need to be said are:

    It's a beta.

    Report bugs.

    Yeah it is quite bad on my mini 2 as well. But then again, it's even bad on my iPhone 6. Control Center is always ~30FPS on both. App Switcher is horrible on my mini 2, iffy on my 6. It's a beta though, I always hear horror stories about them, so I'm sure it will be in better shape by the time the public version is released. Keep reporting with the Feedback Assistant, and be patient.

    I'm running the PB on my Air 1 and have not noticed any of the lag or jitter you are speaking of. It's actually running pretty well for a beta in my opinion.

    Yup. It's terrible on my Air 1
    It is a beta, report the jitters, I have. I love the keyboard with the caps and lower case letters :D

    You must be blind because on my mini 2 I did a clean install and even with 2 apps on the iPad, several hours later, it was still a mess.

    It is not because iOS 9 is a beta, it is slow and jittery because, in the mind of Tim Cook, the iPad Air 1 is old tech, and you need to buy the latest hardware. All of you are fooling yourself if you think an iPad Air 1st gen will ever run smoothly on iOS 9. Wake up, people. All the older minis are going to be slow and jittery, and remain that way.

    This message was created on an iPad Air 1st gen with a JB iOS 7.1.2, and i am wise enough to never upgrade this device past this os.

    Tim Cook, YET AGAIN, is trying to fool us all with this iOS 9 is "stability and speed" type of OS update.

    I have already been fooled once by Tim Cook, never again.
