I've looked up a couple of videos on YouTube regarding this but it's tough to gauge real world performance from low quality clips. Basically my wife has had my old iPad 3 for almost a year after I upgraded to the iPad 4. She has remained on iOS 6 because she's worried that the iPad 3 "can't handle" iOS 7 and that her smooth iPad performance will be taken away by iOS 7. Can iPad 3 owners who have upgraded from iOS 6 to iOS 7 to iOS 7.1.1 possibly give me some performance indications? Do the stock apps load slower? Are the animations/transitions choppy? Is there lag going into multi-tasking? Those kind of things. Her iPad runs great on iOS 6 but she's becoming frustrated at the amount of apps and updates which now require iOS 7, not to mention she can no longer use FaceTime due to the recent constrictions on iOS 6 devices capable of running iOS 7. Much appreciated guys.
