    I have an iPad 3rd generation (64GB) on IOS 5.1.1.......It's currently Jailbroken but to be honest I have very few Jailbroken apps on it.......I'm thinking about upgrading to 7.1.1....I'm not fussed if it can be Jailbroken....But my main concern is will my iPad be okay on 7.1.1 ?
    My son says it will slow it down.......Is this so ?
    Also can it be Jailbroken (7.1.1) like I said not a must.

    Thanks in advance.

    i still have my 3rd gen iPad, 7.1.1 is a lot better then 7.0.x, i mean the performance is worse then it was on iOS 5.1.1 but its still usable

    Could you please provide feedback the on the performance versus 5.1.1 once you updated to 7.1.1? I'm also still on 5.1.1 and I'm not sure if I want to update if the performance is noticeably decreased. Any feedback you could give would be great. :) Thanks

    I was using a 3rd Gen with 7.1 until I bought an Air about 3 weeks ago, and it ran fine for me. I can't compare it to 5.1.1 however, since that was so long ago since I had it now. I did have some random browser crashing, but my problems weren't nearly as bad or often as some people have reported. I wasn't using Safari (I used Atomic Browser), so that may have had something to do with it.

    I use an iPad 3 with iOS 7.1.1. I also have a retina iPad mini (work iPad) with iOS 7.1.1. I don't remember what the iPad 3 was like with iOS 5 (or even iOS 6), but I don't feel that the operating system operations are any slower between the iPad 3 and the retina iPad mini.

    A clean install fixed. Any problems I had with my iPad 3rd gen on ios 7. I hadn't cleanly installed it ever after an update, so I'm sure that helped :)
