    I know there are a lot of opinions on iOS 7, but personally I like it. With that being said, it seems like my iPad Mini has a sharper picture now that it's running iOS 7. I didn't know if it was just my imagination or if anyone else with a Mini was happily surprised as well.

    I just updated and the mini seems to work well, batterie included. So far the only thing I'm not thrilled with is safari speed. I compared it to my iPad 2 on 6.1.2 and the mini is slower. Not by leaps and bounds but noticeable. I have done both the soft reset and hard reset after the update. Now I want the iPad 2 on 7 but am not so sure. Think ill wait a bit to get used to 7 on the mini.

    I was going to post a thread asking if anyone noticed that the clarity improved on the Mini.. I thought maybe I was losing my marbles,lol.

    I thought it was my imagination! It is clearer, and now that I have calibrated the battery, it is holding up well. The Mini seems to run well on 7 and, mostly, I like it. There are some negatives, but only a few, and I do like some new features - foremost among them, swiping up to close apps. Cool! :)

    That's surprising because my mini is significantly slower under ios7 and some games are just like a slideshow... Under ios6 everything was fine. I'm pissed off.

    Yep. first thing that struck me is how crisp the screen is. Same speed, and battery usage. Everything seems to be as it was, albeit brighter and more colourful. Same for my Iphone 5. Just amazing how IOS7 transformed these 2. In each update I did rest all and rebooted.

    I have to say that iOS7, for some peculiar reason, seems to work better for some and worse for others... It makes me wonder...

    Exactly. There must be something else involved. I mean my battery spent like 6% in 4 hours while surfing a bit, read few emails and everything is on (no trick or tips or any optimisation) except bluetooth as I never use it except when I use the external GPS. Same goes for my Iphone 5. I would say a good test would be,

    1. Reset to factory default.
    2. Test it for a couple of days
    3. add a couple a applications a day and watch where it start to downgrade.

    As the only thing I did is full reset and reboot after the upgrade. I don't have many applications (office suits, webex, gotomeeting, photography, and various GPS software) and no games at all. All graphics setting are on. If I don't use them much both the ipad mini and Iphone 5 last at least 2 days. my update was OTA.

    it is indeed puzzling same hardware, same ios and radically different results.
