I just updated to 4.4 and the responsive image feature is not working on an Ipad, looks fine on laptop and phone, but the images are huge and blurry on the ipad. HELP!! I'm using an updated version of the regular 2012 WordPress theme.

Hi NewEnglandB, welcome to trac.

Are you using iOS8? IOS8 doesn't have support for srcset with w descriptors. You should be able to add picturefill to polyfill this functionality for older browsers that don't support the new responsive image attributes, but I will warn you that doing so can lead to double downloads in iOS8 (see the "Any Drawbacks" section in this article).

A quick way to test this is to install the RICG Responsive Images plugin, which will add picturefill for you by default. Can you let me know this ends up being correct?

I installed the RICG Responsive image plugin and it looks much better. Do I need to do anything else??
