I wish they had separated out the options.  I turned off the motion thing when iOS 7 came out because I didn't want the device using up battery to detect I was moving my iPad to make the parallax effect thing move, but I actually like the transitions.  Now those transitions are gone because I turned it off for the other reason.

So what's the word, is it safe to upgrade a 4S yet?

The 4S worked very good with iOS7.  I wouldn't upgrade an iPad 3rd gen though.

My 4S upgrade went without a hitch.  The new OS performs fine for me except for the animation for calling up the spotlight search, which chugs a bit (but not enough to get in the way of function).

agreed % 110. I also liked the 'fly in effect' 
to get it back:
settings / general / accessibility / reduce motion. turn it off if you want the icon animation.

How did you know I had an iPad 3rd gen?  Are you hiding in my closet? (also, why not the iPad?)

Not the one you asked, but many ipad 3 owners, including myself, wish they hadn't upgraded to IOS7. There is a noticeable dip in performance. It's nice that the newest update allows us to disable the zooming effect which was very stuttery. But, there is no denying how much smoother my ipad worked before the jump to 7. I still like my ipad a lot, and it's still a much better tablet than my previous android tablet was, but it  just doesn't work as smoothly on version 7. And personally, I preferred the old look (not that I hate the new one). I also see little functional gain from the upgrade. The one thing I can think of which I like better is the multitasking/application interface which is much nicer. I'd still prefer my ipad the way it was, assuming I could keep apps up to date and not lose functionality.

The performance on an iPad 3 is a bit annoying, but it wouldn't stop me from recommending to upgrade it. While ugly, I really like all the little things iOS 7 adds. That said, hurry up 1Nov (hopefully getting online to buy one will go smoothly).

I've just found the iOS7 experience on the iPad to be abysmal.  Everything is slow and sluggish, even with reduce motion turned on.  It's awful.  The 4S was fine for when I used it, but have since upgraded to 5S.

I'll reiterate the above that iOS 7 works great on a 4S.

I didn't upgrade my iPad 3 though. Probably won't until they fix it.

I don't just mean fix the performance -- iOS 7 makes the iPad even more like a blown-up iPod touch.

What's worse is you can't turn it off on an iPhone4 - since the parallax effect isn't compatible with that model they don't give you access to the "Reduce Motion" option.

I can turn it off on my work 5 but not my personal 4.

THANKS OBAMA  APPLE.   mad finger

You might want to do a reset Leo. I agree performace isn't as good, but it's not that bad.

Alas daddy is getting a new iPad (argh, but which one?!) and this one is going to my kid.

That's what I am saying.  I don't want the icon animation, but I do want the transition effect when moving from app to app or back to the home screen.  They put it all in the one setting, so you either have to have both on or both off, but not transition on and icon animation off.

From the iOS 7.03 patch notes

Enhances the Reduce Motion setting to minimize both motion and animation.


So should help with performance as well as cure the sea sick users lol.

Any way to disable the new.... jiggly way that text messages scroll?  It used to behave like all the texts were solidly linked together, but now they kinda bounce and jiggle.  Seems like a backwards move as far as making the OS animations seem futuristic.

I hate :

General sluggishness on my 4s since the install.  Things lock and freeze for no reason.

Erasing voice mails is an exercise in pain.  See above as it always happens when trying to hit delete.  I am 90% capacity on VM's because I don't have 40 minutes to erase them all.  I'm scared to try and erase a text message.
I turned off Siri because every time I clicked on a voice mail to start it and then moved the phone to my ear to listen to it she would butt in and ask what I needed.  How about f'ing off?  She also does this when trying to click over to another call when already on one.  I usually lose both calls when this happens.
There are a bunch of little hiccup issues here and there that I never had prior to updating it.  I have gone from loving my phone to being ready to throw it at a wall.

When I have problems with iPhones in the past a factory reset through iTunes usually fixes it if a reset doesn't. Have you guys tried that? If all else fails I would take it into an Apple store, maybe you will get a new phone. Your problems don't sound normal.
