With iOS 7 you will get a completely changed system, which has nearly the same usability than iOS 6 with a new and more modern design.
On the 3rd Generation iPad, a key design feature are missing, like the blur-effect behind the notification center, Siri, control center and various other elements, which is really disappointing. Also the multitasking-animations in gestures don't fit to the movement, which makes gestures harder to use. They look laggy when closing an app and if you swipe up with 5 fingers, the apps come from the right side, unsynced to the movement.
The new backgrounds are really nice, the screen dims smoothly now if you put the device in sleep or wake it up.
There are way more things to tell, but those are the things, that are not mentioned in online magazines and other sites.

I suggest you read through the thousands of threads here where posters describe some of the upgade issues that are happening and then decide if you're willing to upgrade right now or if you'd prefer to wait until Apple fixes some of the issues. Many have had problems and many have not.
Hope this helps.

Yes, you should.
Pros: New array of features, improved security, and more versitile/ customizable interface. Individual applications are rolling out updates in order to take advantage of the enhancements, and by extension, improve themselves.
Cons: Aesthetics, aesthetics, aesthetics. Very uncharacteristic of Apple.
This has been the major complaint thus far.

This is scewed. There have been millions of upgrades, and this is a troubleshooting forum....one would expect to hear issues here, not 10 million posts stating "upgrade successful."

There is no way on earth that this can be described as a step forward or as more secure. It is full of pointless bloated nonsense and the developer community is having to rush release products with LESS functionality to cope with its inadequacies so, by definition, worse products.

With all due respect, you have no idea what you're talking about:
"The most significant security update on iOS 7 is the new Activation Lock feature, pictured. Previous handsets let you remotely find, lock, wipe or send texts to a phone if it was stolen. The Activation Lock now means these can't be disabled without a user's Apple ID and password"

I am using Ipad retina display & want to know should I upgrade to Ios7 ?
And Please do mention the pro's and con's of ios7.
I'd leave iOS7 well alone until it undergoes an vast improvement both in functionality and design. Compared to the look of iOS6 it looks cheap and childlike in its design and may be render your iPad very "ill" indeed due to the bugs. Just read the cries of dispair from those people who've downloaded iOS7 on these very forums.
Of course you could download it and have absolutely no issues at all, however if you want to risk it the decision is yours!!
