    Starting a new thread as I haven't been able to find any information about the performance of iOS8 on the 4th gen iPad.

    Anyone who has upgraded, could you please share how the iPad4 performs after the upgrade? I am currently not sure whether to upgrade as the jump from ios6 to ios7 wasn't a happy one. Specifically, even ios 7.1.3 couldn't fix the orientation change lag with the keyboard on screen.

    Look forward to your comments.

    Thanks,

    Rituraj

    I upgraded my iPad 4 on release day and I'm pretty happy with it.. The A6X chip is a beast and we have the same 1GB of RAM as the new hardware so I wouldn't worry too much. In fact, I feel like my battery life has even improved since the upgrade. iOS 8 however is still a little buggy but it's not related to the iPad hardware. Because I see the same bugs on my iPhone 6. I think it's due to apps not being updated for iOS 8.

    So far mine has been working great. Using 8.0.2. Did not update until a few fixes became available.

    Don't worry about it and go ahead and upgrade. Once you've done that you will then know for yourself how it performs....which with very few exceptions is very well indeed. You see, when a few million people have upgraded, they will all not go onto a forum to say everything is fine. The small number with problems may do so though. And there is a very high probability that those problems will have solutions. And most of those solutions will be provided to you by a number of knowledgeable people on this forum.
    So, hit that button, and while your iPad is updating, just sing to yourself..."don't worry, be happy":)

    Well, I was just using Tapatalk and had open the iPad forum discussion when some of the discussions starting flashing as well as the menu bar at the bottom of the screen.

    Pushed the home button but Tapatalk would not shut down. I then attempted to hold the on/off button to shut down the device and it would not respond.

    Miraculously for reasons unknown it eventually shut itself down. Hopefully the data errors it created were sent to Apple for analysis?

    Only if you allow it in Settings - Privacy - Diagnostics & Usage.

    Thanks for all the responses. Well, I have been trying to download the update (1.85 GB) through iTunes, but keep getting the 'network timed out error'. I have already disabled the firewall and the antivirus software temporarily, but to no avail. As I type this, I am on my 5th attempt at the download.
    Suggestions solicited.

    Make sure you're connected to the internet. Try to access a random website using a browser.

    The latest version of iTunes is 11.4. If it's not up to date, then download and install it before updating.

    iTunes is updated, no issues with internet connectivity, yet the download keeps failing. Wonder why.
