    I recently bought an ipad mini 3, 64 gb model on Powermac. It's brand new,sealed with warranty. The problem here is that i've been experiencing some lag in some ways when im using the ipad. Like when i'm rotating it on imessages, app store, or when i'm shifting from safari to home(using assistive touch) its only smooth on home and in apps..thouh somr apps still doesnt have the smooth rotation.

    Also, there are times when i open the camera and i try to take a picture with it, the first picture doesn't have a shutter sound.

    I just want to know if it also happens to people who're using the same device as mine..or atleast with same processor. I'm just a little frustrated because i expected to experience a snappy performance(though it is also snappy in some ways too) because it has the a7 with m7 coprocessor and it just came out(though i know that it has the same features as the mini 2) and its expensive enough for me. Plus given the fact that i have its on 64gb model and i barely put apps here( i only have 27 apps) i've already tried resetting its hardware by pressing the home and lock at the same time. Still the same. Its running ios 8.1.2 btw.

    I guess the games are okay. Really fast, smooth and all.Idk if ios 8 is just too high already for my ipad or is this a hardware damage? I want to know so i can have it replaced with a new one.

    Turn on reduce transparency I found this helps make the rotation smooth.

    Try a hard reset also.

    If you restored it from the backup of a previous iPad, give it a day or two to settle in. A lot of indexing and other stuff happens right after a restore, and can cause some lagyness.

    The hard reset (hold down the power and home buttons until the Apple logo appears) can help as well.

    In short, no, an iPad Mini 3 should be reasonably snappy. But it has the same processor and memory as my iPad Air (last years model), and it too was laggy for a about a day after the initial restore.

    What version of iOS is it running? If it is not on version 8.1.2, then upgrade. The earlier versions had several issues, including unexpected laggyness.

    im not really talking about a total laggyness..im just talking about the shifting from safari to home..something like that(sometimes) probably the sudden crunchy movement which i didn't expect from a7. its running 8.1.2 but the ipad is actually smooth when at home or in facebook/twitter. I'm just asking if its normal..especially in imessage/app store when rotating it isn't smooth but crunchy.

    Did you turn on reduce transparency? Mine is choppy when I rotate the
    screen also but when I turn on reduce transparency it's smooth as butter.
