like the iphone 3g was on ios4
Nah, it seems snappy enough.
I'd say mine is running faster. Certainly safari is drastically improved.
it seams they did away with the checkerboarding when loading a web page and now it is just 1 color. I'm guessing that frees up a lil ram and makes safari run a lil smoother
It sped up my iPhone 4 (a tiny bit) and the iPad 1 has the same processor (A4) so it should be fine.
RIP Stevethe world misses you. Condolences to Laurene and the family <3
I sure hope it doesn't. I'm still using my 1st generation iPad and am holding off for iPad 3. I had an iPhone 3g and ios 4 just killed it. Even with ios 4 my iPad gets sluggish sometimes. I have to kill apps and clean the memory out to bring back its perfomance.
Anyone else here have an iPad 1 and using ios 5? How's the performance so far?
iOS 5 on an iPad 1: performance is solid. web browsing is noticeably smoother/faster. love it.
No its a little quicker for me.
Doubt it. The iPod touch 4th gen has alot of indentical specs as the iPad 1. The 4th gen is very snappy to.
My iPad 1 runs really well with iOS 5. I'd definitely say that it's a slight improvement over iOS 4, fact.
As a side note, the iPad 2 runs incredibly smoothly with iOS 5, although that's to be expected when you consider how much more powerful the A5 chip is.
There Will Only Be A Difference
In apps that appear which are optimised for IOS5, Apart from that the ipad1 will be fine, and as others have pointed out here, it's actually smoother (noticed it on my friends 1) Lot's to look forward to this coming week!
upgraded to ios 5 gm on ipad 1 and it's lagging like hell...any thoughts on it?
If you're a registered developer, you should be asking questions like this on the Apple dev boards.
If you're not a registered developer, you shouldn't have the gm.
If you install iOS 5 after the software is released and still have problems, ask again here or get a genius bar appt. at your local Apple store.
I'm experiencing totally the opposite. I'd personally backup your content and do another restore. Everything has got better in every way.
Is the original iPad slow with iOS 5?
Just wondering if it would be like the iPhone 3G with iOS 4 scenario.
I don't think so - it has the A4 processor, same as the iPhone 4. It should handle iOS 5 just fine.
It's just missing certain multitouch gesture features... *grumble*
No, but I think the increased memory footprint causes some issues with multitasking (from my own personal experience). It seems like less stuff can stay resident in the background now with iOS 5...
Also, no photo editing
Nope, I have the GM build (gold master) on my original iPad and I have not run into any speed issues. Although i do wish there were multitasking gestures, nothing a jailbreak can't fix! There is no photo editing due to the lack of a camera.
512mb vs 256mb
People comparing iPhone 4 to iPad because of the same processor, don't forget that the iPhone 4 has twice as much ram as the iPad 1 that probably makes a huge difference.....
If you think people aren't going to prematurely download the GM of iOS 5 and ask questions about it publicly, you're in la-la land.
There's really no need for the rudeness.
I popped the GM seed of iOS5 on my iPad (1) the day it was available and I have definitely noticed some sluggish aspects.
The most noticeable is Garage Band. Garage Band is almost unusable. Once you record a few sections of a song with just a few instruments it gets extremely sluggish. Trying to record stuff after that is impossible as half the time it doesn't even register your touches.
I am extremely frustrated with it right now as I had no issues making 2+ minutes songs entirely in GB before.
I had a 3G when iOS4 came out, and I have iOS5 GM on my iPad 1. I can say that the iPad1 seems a little sluggish at times under iOS5, but nowhere near as bad as iOS4 was on the 3G. For the most part it's just fine, e.g. browsing and so forth are great. App switching seems a bit laggy.
Haven't tried Garage Band as the other poster mentioned, I'll give that a try later today.
I have the GM on my iPad 1 and it's surprisingly quick... especially Safari.
The 256mb of ram is really the only limiting factor.
Great info. I guess i'll keep my iPad 1 @ 4.3 since I just use it for music, midi, etc.
