    Any confirmation on whether 7.1 fixes low memory and Safari crashing?

    Even if t doesn't fix that witch I'm not sure if it will or won't the upgrade is amazing and much faster and I have only seen one bug so far so you should definitely upgrade

    Can't fix low memory warnings with only 1 gig of ram with a 64 bit CPU. Safari appears more stable, so far - and I'm a major critic.

    Upgrade without hesitation. There's noticeable performance improvements and equates to a better experience. Safari has been holding up well for me today with 7.1, no reloading.. Yet.

    You most definitely can.

    I've upgraded two iPhones and two iPads to 7.1, and all have way better performance all around. Anyone on the fence about this has no reason to be at all. Just upgrade!

    That poster had 14, I couldn't keep two open without reloading. So you are saying that he is right and I am wrong? You are saying my reality does not exist?

    7.1 is much more stable for me on my iPad Air. So far no reboots, crashes or issues with auto rotation. It's too bad it took more than 4 months for Apple to release this update and fix all these issues.

    I don't have to say anything of the sort, because the evidence speaks for itself. His "reality" includes a video showing 13 tabs of some fairly content-heavy websites working just fine, and largely matches with my own experience. You can interpret that however you want to interpret it, though personally I'd say you're being a bit melodramatic about the whole thing.

    Definitely. Everything is snappier and Safari reloads tabs less.

    Did a clean 7.1 install on the iPad Air. Working great, nice iOS update. (Did the same on the 5s, also working great.) Excellent update.

    Just update. Mine is better, much better but I am sure many will proclaim that 7.1 is a disaster. Safari seems faster with little to no hesitation.

    Sorry for being melodramatic about a poor user experience on a website centering on the manufacturer of said device. I thought the opinions Of users were welcomed, sorry for being so wrong.

    Is that melodramatic enough for you yet?

    I agree. Don't know about Safari since I don't use it, but I have found that 7.1 made my experience with my Air much better too. Apps seem to close/ open much faster and there is an enhancement of the smoothness with how things move around.

    Count, yer good. No worries. You and I have respectfully bantered back and forth over this issue. I believe ya, man. I hope the update takes care of you and you can fully enjoy your Air more now.

    Nothing melodramatic about a poor user experience. These things are NOT cheap and should work pretty flawlessly out of the box. ;)

    Can someone load www.nin.com in portrait mode then rotate to landscape and tell me what happens? It crashes every time in every browser on my ipad air with 7.06.

    :thumbs up:

    I have not gotten much time on 7.1 yet. But what time I have, has been good so far. I've started using safari normally again(no longer waiting a second or two before scrolling), and it has not blown up in over two hours of use. It would have blown up 4-5 times had I done that in 7.0.X But I am guessing it's more to do with rebooting, than 7.1

    The real test will be typing in here, while trying to pull in other material from another tab. Last week, or maybe two weeks ago, I had the worst experience to date, in being unable to do this simple task without constant reloads(only two tabs), and safari blowing up.

    Have a good one!!!

    You're not wrong at all. Users opinions are welcomed, and I welcome them too. I'm simply saying you put some words in my mouth that I didn't actually say.

    It appears that you're on 7.1 now and things are going better for you. It's good to know that your experience is improving, which is a good thing considering lots of people said it couldn't be done in 1GB of RAM.

    Did the same for wife's iPad Air and her 5S. Both working flawlessly ! :)

    (My devices - at least for now - remain jailbroken on 7.0.6) I know, this isn't the hacks forum :cool:

    Yes. It fixes the springboard restart problem with the A7 chip.

    Can someone tell me WTH is so important with nin.com? I mean every thread discusses that site crashes the browser on iOS. Surely that site is not that important to visit and base the whole iOS experience on. What am I missing? If it were google.com or yahoo.com maybe a tad bit more important. It seems folks JUST go there to see if the browser will crash or not. Again WTH?

    100% Fix for browser crash at nin.com: "Dont go there!"
