    Isn't the scroll speed in Safari significantly slower in iOS 8 than iOS 7? When scrolling up and down pages, it feels very slow. Anywhere to change this?

    Not for me, haven't noticed anything different about it.

    depends what sites are being viewed, if u have 99999 tabs open, background refresh on for every single app, device model..

    it was unchanged with my iphone 5 & ofc the iphone 6 is also fine

    Just one tab/page. When I scroll down the page, it only takes a small chunk with every swipe.

    Maybe it's because it's a 6 Plus? :S

    I'm using a 6+ and scrolling seems painfully slow.

    I think it's probably something to do with the fact that the 6+ can display more lines and the scrolling gesture is calibrated on smaller screens.

    So a 15 line scroll on an iPhone 5s would 'move' a much larger percentage of the screen than it does on the 6 plus.

    My thoughts exactly. Hopefully Apple will do something about this in the next update.

    It depends on the length/height of the page. On a page not much taller than the display the scrolling is slower than on a longer page. Safari on the Mac acts the same way too.

    It seems slow to me on my 6 plus compared to my iPhone 5 on iOS 7. It's annoying

    Yup, I have that issue on my air sometimes, especially google search pages. I have an air still on ios7 and it's much better scrolling.

    Scroll speed in iOS 8

    I've got the 6 plus and coming from a galaxy s3 I find it very choppy, not impressed, I'm using tapatalk as well and I'm finding that equally as bad.

    As others have said on 5s seems about the usual.

    Yes, I have noticed this on my iPhone 6 Plus running iOS 8.3. Big difference between the iPhone and iPad Air 2, it's so sluggish when you're trying to flick down on the web pages and I have to do long swipes in order to get the screen to go down more. :confused:
