    Has anyone else experienced the problem with iOS 7 where this device is amazingly laggy now? Everything is slower, even typing on the keyboard has large delays.

    Have you tried a restart, hold the home and on/off buttons until the Apple logo appears then let it reboot, let us know if this helps. The Archangel

    I had this problem before. Using your iPad with the lag helped by "cooping" with iOS 7. This worked for me. Of course, a reset, or reboot, or erase all data and content works too. I find it normal in ever new OS update for a lag. And I expect it everytime.

    In a word, yes, big lag problems even after reboot. This is one of many issues I am having, :(

    Check how much storage capacity you have left, if it's less than 10% then this may be the cause.

    Even zooming in on web pages produces significant lag now.....

    Sorry, A, missed this initially. Bags of capacity left. The lagging is not too bad now but noticeably slower than 6.1.3

    In that case I can only think that something must be using up your RAM, my iPad Mini, if anything seems faster.........but then I'm just deranged!

    Initial lag that tappers off can also be caused by the spotlight search feature. The indexing for search happens in the background, and can be intense for the first hour or so. It also contributes to battery drain.

    Or so I've read.

    Not only will the new search index take a bit of battery, so does the new Collections feature of the Photo app as it sorts your Camera Roll, Albums and Photo Stream. It took over 5 hours to sort all the photos on my iPhone and 4 hours on my iPad.

    I hadn't thought of that, but it makes sense. Thanks!

    That would explain why my iPhone 5 lagged for the first few hours and my iPad 4 didn't, all of my music is on the iPhone. Lag disappears shortly thereafter.

    Could be just that as it seems to be diminishing as time goes on. Still cannot understand how to get spotlight. I sweep down centre page but all I get is my calendar, no search tool bar. Not that I miss it, you never miss what you ain't got :)

    Put your finger between the upper row of your apps and pull it down.
    It looks great with the right background.

    Mine got sluggish after the update. The lag in the keyboard is quite noticeable sometimes. Also I've seen some stuttering in the animations when I switch apps.

    I'm hoping my lag goes away. It's extremely annoying.

    And there must be some other battery-draining options pre-selected since the install, since my iPad seems to be draining at a much faster rate.

    I am have severe keyboard lag where it can take a few seconds for the typed letters to show on the screen. Then they all show at the same time and make the clicking noise. I reset all setting and then did the reset where I held the power button and main button. No different at all. Any other suggestions?
    It is a 64 gig ipad 3 with about 2 gigs used.

    Star girl, Johanna! Thanks again. Just couldn't figure it out from the instructions I had to search out on the web, "just swipe down from the top of the screen" was the general instruction. Nothing about the upper row of icons! I do not know what I would do without you.
