    So I noticed something funky with my iPad Air this evening...

    I use Safari a great deal, and enjoy the swiping from the edge of the screen to go back/forward pages. I noticed that when in landscape mode, with the home button on the LEFT, swiping from the right edge in to go forward a page is really, REALLY inconsistent. The left edge, to go back a page, works 100% of the time.

    Peculiarly, if I switch the iPad around so that the home button is on the right, I have no issues. Same for portrait.

    So.... Not sure what's going on here?

    As an addendum, I found that if I swipe from very close to the black frame on the right (in landscape with the home button to the left), it works quite consistently. However, if I start with my finger on the bezel, it's very inconsistent on that side. It's really bizarre....

    Anyone else notice this?

    *edit*

    Found this thread on Apple. Seems like a bug in the software that's been around of a bit, it seems. :(

    Ya know - I havent seen this issue but thats because for whatever reason I always hold my iPad in landscape mode with the home button on the right. Just habit. Maybe Ill try it out just to see?

    Yup, I noticed this a few days ago. I always use safari in landscape mode with the home button to the left so I thought it was supposed to be that way.

    I've noticed the animation is really choppy when using 5-finger pinch, as opposed to using the Home button. Otherwise, nothing else yet.

    Yes, that affects all iPads right now.
