iPad Pro 2018 Lag and Not Smooth

I bought an iPad 11” yesterday and I downloaded infinite flight on it. I also have IF on my iPhone Xr and it is really smooth and I constantly get 60fps but on this iPad IF isn’t smooth, I have removed the FPS limit and it’s not helping either. It’s also lagging when choose planes or look the map before I start a flight. It almost feels like there is a set FPS limit. Can someone please help?

The iPad 11" is the best of the best device to run Infinite Flight on. If you are experiencing lags and lack of smoothness, restarting your iPad might be a possible solution. Have you tried restarting your iPad?

What processor does it have?

The A12X Bionic chip, powerful enough to win a MacBook Pro i5

I live up to my name: iOS


Also lack of storage can cause that issue but that is very strange. Try restarting if that doesn’t work then I would recommend contacting Apple.

Yep processor is not the issue

I restarted it factory resetted it, hard resetted it and used memory apps to wipe out memory but it doesn’t seem to have any effect. Deleted and installed it again too.

Defective iPad

Also everything works perfectly fine except IF

Can you elaborate more on how lag or lack of responsive the simulator is?

Any videos or screenshots?

Are you on the IF Facebook fan group, there is actually a video of it I can show you.

Unfortunately I haven’t joined FaceBook with Infinite Flight. Mind if you share it here?

It is pretty surprising to understand that the iPad Pro wouldn’t run smoothly, since no mobile device can be more powerful than this device. So we sort of conclude that there is nothing to do with the device’s power. Then it might be something with the accounts or the applications.

Ok I will.

I have a 11 inch iPad Pro and IF plays buttery smooth. Really odd. Maybe try closing any apps running in the background? I have once or twice received ‘device memory low’ on the new iPad, but still never saw any performance issues with it.


Please make suer when playing IF to have all background apps closed as well!.

Also I am getting the same geek bench results with the other 11” iPad pros

I will now take a look at the video.

Keep in mind if all other things work except infinite flight which is using the processor very intensely then maybe just the processor is defective.

Unfortunately the link that you have shared @TurkishFlyer doesn’t seem to work. I am unable to play the video.

Correction: Now I can.
