ios 7 problems seems to get worse
Posted 15 October 2013 - 05:57 PM
Light bright backgrounds, thin fonts, one app has a light grey background with slightly darker grey characters when I type, I still have good vision, but Im have a **** of a time looking and concentrating when reading, when using safari and your on a page your viewing, when I want to look up something else, I go to the search box, the the start page shows up, this doesn't help one bit when I need to type in info Im reading on the current page, when typing away, the characters show up a couple of seconds later, web pages hang, crash and so on, some review sites call ios 7 childish, and after a while Im going to have to agree, it seems like the Apple people were told to refresh the os at any cost, what used to be a swipe to the right is now a swipe to the left, they reversed many things just to be different without any thought of functionality. the list just keeps going on and I don't have many apps or using too many resources like location services.
All these problems have me thinking about other products instead of Apple, Im not about to throw away more money because Apple says they want to increase my user experience, Im sick of the incremental slowdowns, bad updates, Im not sure why, is it because Steve Jobs is gone, Im starting to think so, but I may be wrong, Im also starting to really hate Apples closed system for purchasing or what they deem fit for my ipad, after a while this does start to bug you.
I would downgrade to ios 6, but Apple wont let me, so where is my choice here.
I dont need Apple telling me what I need nor to be locked in their system, there will most likely be no more Apple purchases from myself, I do have a iphone 5, but thats another story, Im running ios 7.02 and apparently 7.03 will be out shortly, we will see what happens there, Apple used to be great, but all things come to an end.

first, fix your font size and make them bold, by reading THIS webpage with tips and tricks.
i just put iOS 7 on my iPad 2, and the wife's iPad Mini, and they both work great! (as well as both iPhone 4s's)... note, they all have the same processor. Your iPad 3 should be find with a little adjusting.
Read that link!!

If you haven't already, follow helpwanted's link. Those look like the advice I received as soon as I upgraded. Must have done the trick. Otherwise, might be some kind of issue with a faulty upgrade?

What burns me is the ipad was running just fine with ios 6, and that with a-lot more location services turned on, then just after the upgrade boom,
the typing is still slow, if I type too fast the curser falls behind, safari is a little better but still choppy, I can wipe it out and start all over, and like I said Im not going to run out and buy an ipad 5 because it will handle ios 7 well.

Many people are reporting that resetting the settings also helps restores lost functionalities.
Also, turning off iCloud is supposed to dramatically speed up the keyboard typing. I'll wager that interaction/problem gets fixed soon with an iOS 7 update.

Hopefully things will settle out for you, Kurat. Plenty of good changes in 7.

Settings--> General--> Reset--> Reset All Settings
And --> Reset Network Settings
while you're at it.
You may have to enter passwords again and reconnect to your networks, but it should help with the lags. I did that with my iPad 2 and ever since it has been running as well as it did under iOS6.

If you have, never mind. But if you haven't...wow!
PS Unless you have a vast number of programs running in the background, (rather than sliding them "off" in the double press mode using the round depressed control by the charging socket), I don't think you should see the behavior you describe. Of course, Most computers reach a limit for simultaneous processing and RAM space, at some point especially if running continuous without ever shutting down and experiencing increased demands...with an upgrade and preference changes.
In any event, good luck!

Agreed! I'm only reacting to his problems with how sluggish his SSP is, and those other specific issues that don't seem to be affecting all iPad3/iOS7. I have a friend who didn't realize that there was another state (Off) besides the quick Sleep mode. Hence my question.
I'm running SSP 3.8.2 on an iPad Mini with iOS 7.0.2 and is still very fast - I have not really noticed a drop-off.
The only iOS7 issue I have seen are screen freezes. It happened to me perhaps half a dozen times on my last observing session. After awhile I just went back to using ServoCAT/Argo Navis for scope control partly because of the freezes and partly because of more accurate GOTO's from SC/AN.
With the next dark sky window opening in five days people may start finding more things, but hopefully not.

I have 4 devices running iOS 7... None of them have any bugs or performance issues.
