    FYI in ios9 go into settings -> cellular and scroll down and turn off wifi assist

    It will not only save your data it will help with lag. It made the 6 and my dads 5s snap right back to normal.

    That switch should be at the top of the app list not buried at the bottom! :-)

    It made a MASSIVE difference in the 6 and on my dad's 5S. Like...IMMEDIATELY. And any of my friends I told to do it also noticed the change.

    The reason I really mentioned it was because it will absolutely chew through data, and if you're not unlimited or don't have a ridiculous plan like I have, it will kill your plan. That lag thing was kind of a bonus discovery.

    On paper this seems like a great function. I wonder what is causing this lag though. Is it just pinging your location every 5 minutes or so?

    I consumed my monthly data limit in 8 days due to wi-fi assist and traced it to this 'non-bug' on ios 9 yesterday.

    Basically yea. The OS is trying to keep a good strong signal and a lot of it's resources are being devoted to that.
