Unfortunately, iPad has a limited hardware, which can cause performance issue. You can try to turn off the animation. Note that the most heavy task in such case is to re-position an element with a lot of childrens.
I will suggest you reduce the amount of the items (use minLength option), which you need to show in the widget.
