The iPad mini has this effect and, like the iPad 2, it has the A5 chip. The screen is smoller, ok, but i think that it is not a really big problem that stops Apple to add this feature to the iPad!
The same thing of Siri between iPad mini and iPad 2, just a way to drive customers to buy new product; nothing else!

I sent a feedback to Apple. I hope they will hear us. We gotta fight!
I have an iPad 2 and my brother has an iPad Mini. I know they are identical. They've got the same A5 CPU, the same amount of memory.
The point is he has the blur effect everywhere and I don't.
I'm sure it's a bug because my iPad supports it. It can render the blur effect and it actually does in the multitask menu (the springboard thumbnail is live blured).

yes . my ipad also lose this fascinated design.
instead Blur Translucent that Apple promised, they gave us Transparent non-Blur in control center and notification center same as my iPhone4.
but weird, they enabled paralax in ipad 3, in iPhone 4 they dont give.
we want experience as Apple promised ! the way it looked and the way it feel.
surely there are many No for every Yes.
can this Yes become so amazing and stunning?

This is very disappointing! I've sent my feedback to Apple. Hope they can fix it in the 7.0.1 version.
I've bought the 3th generation iPad last years, just a few months before Apple release the 4th generation.
I'd like to know why that beautiful translucent blur enhancement of the iOS7 is not available on my iPad. Is it a bug or something?
This feature is available on the iPad Mini and as I know, the 3th generation has a much better hardware. What is the purpose of that?

Same processor, 800Mhz for the iPhone 4S, 1000Mhz for the iPad 2.
The ipad 2's processor doesn't have to deal with phone services like the iphone does (SMS, phone, data) so it is faster and has less work to do.
Plus the iPad mini is exactly as fast as the iPad 2 and has the blur effect !

Yes, it's meant to have no blur. I can sort of understand it with the iPad 2, but the iPad 3 has an extra graphics chip. As people have been saying, there's no functional reason why the iPad mini has it and the iPad 3 doesn't. The only reason is because the mini is still on sale!

The iPad 3 is slower than the iPad 2. Its GPU is 2 times faster but it has 4 times more pixels (retina display) http://m.androidauthority.com/why-the-new-ipad-3-may-be-slower-than-ipad-2-wait- what-61643/
The iPad mini has the blur effect and is a small version of the iPad 2.
So the iPad 2 is meant to have blur effect and not the iPad 3.
