I took the plunge and upgraded my iPad Air 2 to iPad OS 13. So far, except for the annoying “learn more about iPad OS 13!” pop ups, the biggest thing I’ve noticed is that my battery life is noticeably shorter than under iOS 12.4.

Is it just that I may need to recalibrate the battery meter, or does this OS just use more power? Inquiring minds and all that...

I haven't done the upgrade yet. It's kind of a moot point for me, though. My iPad Air stopped holding a charge awhile back, so I have to keep it plugged in whenever I use it.

I'm not looking forward to the popups, though. Is there any way to stop them, other than take the tour to the end?

I haven’t bothered with the tour (or “tours”) yet, and I haven’t seen a “no thanks” option, but I expect that once I let them play the pop ups will go away..
