    I have been using my iPad Air for a few days now and have noticed that the screen feels less responsive when tapping or scrolling. In other words, I feel like I need to use more pressure when compared to previous generations. Anyone else experiencing this?

    It's just as responsive as my iPhone 5 screen... Not really sure about previous generations of the iPad.

    It's true I put the Air and a iPad 4 on iOS 6 side by side .

    The Air on iOS 7 is more resistive.

    I suspect it's just a software change but don't have any other iOS 7 devices to try .

    I did notice this when comparing it to my gf's iPad 3, but I wasn't sure if it was because there's a screen protector on the 3 or if the Air's screen was responding differently.

    Air has IGZO display. Perhaps it responds differently.

    Thought I'd follow up now that the Air has been out for a while. Anyone else notice a difference in screen sensitivity when campared with previous generations of iPad or other iOS devises?

    Yes, with the air I have to tap firmer, and sometimes twice. I hope it can be fixed with software update...

    I haven't noticed so much, maybe because I had a Mini and got accustomed to it over the last year. I think it helps if you slow down and touch rather than tap. :confused:
