    Anyone still have issues with choppiness and stuttering in Safari? It's especially bad on the bookmark screen in landscape mode. Is it just my iPad or is anyone else having this issue?

    Have you tried turning on "reduce transparency" in settings? Another person suggested it in another thread I had about iPad Air, and even though I am still on 7.1.2 I noticed an immediate safari and messages improvement when I toggled that accessibility feature on. See if it helps.

    At the end of the day, I'd rather have butter smooth browsing and performance, I don't care what color my dock or control center is.

    Yes, me too, my Air was pretty smooth on 7.1 but not so smooth now, but my 5s feels great on 8.1 so it's weird... My iPad mini also feels slower but it's first gen...
