Since iOS 8, my iPad mini with Retina has been... Odd. I sort of was expecting this, but I checked with my friends air and he has none of my problems. Multitasking Gestures are spotty. I have heard other complaints of this, so I'm not too worried. There is a fairly large delay when maneuvering to the app switcher, using a gesture or double tapping the home button. Screen rotation is horribly slow. At the lock screen, when I need to rotate the screen, I turn the device, and nothing happens. However the "Slide to Unlock" animation starts to lag very badly, and a black border can be seen rotating around the lock screen sort of. Hard to explain. Anyway the delay is so large that the "Slide to Unlock" gleam I guess you could say, goes a full two times before the screen laggily turns. My friends iPad doesn't do this at all. Anywhere I turn the screen, it also shows a black border almost rotating, then the actual content turns. It all is pretty slow. Lastly, whenever leaving messages, Safari, and sometimes settings or photos, the animation lags and jerks very badly. I tried a "Reset All Settings" and it did the trick for about a day or two, then all the problems returned. I really really don't want to restore through iTunes and start fresh, but I may end up doing anything it takes to stop this. I did an OTA update, no clean install. I intended to update through iTunes but ran into problems and got impatient, so... That's that. Probably why I am having such problems in the first place but anyway. Anybody having similar problems, or should I restore and start fresh?
