    I expected this device to be buttery smooth, but it's not?

    There's a fair amount of animation stutter.

    It was set up as a new iPad, and I've only put a couple of apps on it.

    I've also turned it off, and back on again to erase the cache.

    Do you think it could be indexing? But like I said, there are only 2 additional apps installed so what could be indexing?

    Is anyone else experiencing this?

    Thanks ...

    Is this with a particular app?

    The only stuttering I experience is with safari when I am scrolling using the ASK.

    Performing a google search shows some have had similar issues along the years. A few fixes include just doing a hard re-start or http://wccftech.com/fix-ios-9-lag/

    Hello JD.

    I mean animation stutter.

    Like pinching to go back to Home Screen, or switching between apps ...

    This happened to me when I first got my AIR 2. Don't know what caused it. I almost returned it but it's gone after a few weeks. Now it's very smooth. Very weird.

    There is some stutter on my iPad Air 2 right now, but I didn't notice until you said something and I started looking for it. It's pretty minor, so it would be helpful to know the intensity of the lag you're experiencing.

    I find that the first few days after setting up a new iDevice, that there is some lag. I found it was due to the spotlight indexing and the background synchronization of iCloud, photos, media, etc.

    #1. No stutter here. Buttery smooth many Apps open I let iOS decide what it needs to do I rarely close Apps anymore.
    #2. I was gonna my only complaint is that the A9X is too fast it's ruined me for other devices. Playing Vain Glory it must be running at 60+fps
    #3. I can't switch this fast on my PC from Netflix to Chrome heck Side by Side 2 Forums open one Safari one Chrome. On the A9X and 9.7 is just fine Heck hitting the Home button watching Netflix then hitting Safari again brings up both browsers in side by Side view that's amazing.

    How many folders do you have on your Home Page & subsequent pages?

    It seems like too many folders (as was the same with my iPad 4) causes animation stutter ...

    Buttery smooth for me. Likewise my only complain is that the iPad pro 9.7 is so fast and smooth that all my other devices look slow now! Web surfing is like on steroids (same network and router as all other devices).

    I have the large ipad pro and I have animation stutter as well so its iOS optimization issues.

    You aren't the only one with this issue. Lag all over the UI. Opening apps/closing apps/multitasking switcher. Quite disappointed to be honest. My old iPad 4 wasn't quite this bad.

    Worst thing is it isn't all the time, very intermittent. I can go 2/3 app opens with it buttery smooth and then it starts stuttering. CC and NC is very smooth. Spotlight also jitters slightly. Hoping it can be fixed with a iOS update. I am however worried it could be a hardware issue...

    EDIT: Weird observation. If you have a video playing in PiP, the UI is buttery smooth throughout. Could it be something to do with the variable refresh rate??

    Cheer, Dan.

    Just read it.

    Stutter has been an issue with iOS for a while.

    Both iPad Pros are supposedly so powerful, yet they can't seem to fluidly animate such basic things?

    I don't understand how they can run certain games, if they have issues with this?

    Strange ...

    Yep, it has been a issue for quite a while and I believe more frequently ever since iOS 9. If you are watching Hulu and then decide to use PIP, it will lag and it even sometimes lags when trying to transition out of the application. Apple is definitely not using the powerful processors and graphics in the pro devices with their true potential. The reason I believe tha the pro devices should use a version of iOS completely unique to itself with the capabilities to run archaic ipad apps etc.,

    Reset the iPad by holding down the power and home buttons, when it's rebooted unlock it, plug it into the mains, leave it alone overnight. A tip someone on here told me, it should do all it's indexing then, when it's being charged, connected to WiFi and not in use.

    I wouldn't leave mine on charge overnight, Dan.

    I'm going to leave mine on through the night (I usually turn my iPad off) but I'll not leave it "charging" all night.

    By the way, my battery has got MUCH better after a couple of complete discharges followed by full charges (calibrations, basically).

    You can't cure the stutter.

    It's just iOS, mate ...

    I went to the Apple Store to try out the new iPad Pros today as I'm looking to upgrade, and experienced the same stutter when switching between apps. Quite disappointing to see this frankly.

    My ipad pro 12.9 has been stuttering quite a bit with the 9.3.1 update...i'm not sure why...it usually stutters a tadbit less than this. If anyone else is having this issue, let me know. I have had my ipad pro since its release.

    What do you think will happen if you leave it on charge overnight? It's designed for that.

    Why? Are you superstitious? You can leave your iPad plugged in overnight, millions of people do this very same thing day in and day out, and tablet certainly can handle running for that long.

    Definitely iOS, then.
    I wouldn't do that.

    In the long run, it's not going to be good for the battery ...
    --- Post Merged, Apr 3, 2016 ---
    I'm just cautious with my devices.

    I have meticulously looked after my iPad 4 battery and it is just as good as when I bought it on day one ...
    --- Post Merged, Apr 3, 2016 ---
    It will reduce the life of the battery, in the long run ...
