Hi guys, i have both ipad 3 and ipad mini 1st gen. What i notice from them on ios 7.1 is that same apps perform much better and smoother on ipad mini 1 than on ipad 3. I know that ipad 3 has to drive this retina display, but is this slower app performance problem of ipad 3 actually due to the display and not as capable processor OR apple didnt optimize the software in general for ipad 3 and most third party apps are slower and laggier on ipad 3? I'm really not sure. Example of these apps are many from my experience, but main ones are eBay, and Frank & Oak. Apps like Google Search is laggier too on ipad 3. Its not that the load up time is slower, its just the animations are more stuttering and not as smooth in many third party apps. Stock apps run perfectly on both devices. I'm wondering if apple improves the overall performance on ipad 3 with ios 8, then third party apps will also run smoother because ipad 3 general speed is improved? Is this correct? Just asking even though I'm not sure if apple will improve the speed sith ios 8 for ipad 3. Any insights? Thanks. Btw, I'm not planning to upgrade yet, so i just wish the problem can be resolved..
