    So I'm currently rocking an iPhone 6plus and updated to 9.1 when it was released. It was running great but as of last night I noticed my phone has been acting very buggy. First I noticed that once in awhile when opening up multitask mode (double press home button) it becomes very laggy/choppy. Secondly, last night when trying to update an app from the App Store, every time I pressed the "update" button, nothing would happen and the "update" button would just reappear again. I deleted the said app and tried to redownload it and every time I pressed the little cloud icon, it would just disappear and reappear again. Finally after rebooting my iPhone, resetting network settings, and 20 attempts later, the said app finally started downloading. Also I noticed that every time I rebooted my iPhone and would go into the multitask screen, there would be multiple apps open that I never opened. I would close them all out, and after trying to troubleshoot the whole app download issue by restarting, I would notice those same apps were again open in my multitasks. Today my phone has been really laggy. While texting, I noticed my contacts pictures were off center and had to readjust them. I also noticed in each conversation thread the time stamp would overlap the little light gray arrow. It wasn't until I closed the messaging app and reopened it that it all started to line up correctly again. Now, it seems as though I'm having terrible cell reception. Upload speeds at a crawling .43 even though my phone shows me with 3-4 dots of LTD service. Something doesn't seem right.

    Anyone else experiencing strange things happening with their iPhones over the last couple of days?? Any suggestions on how to fix???

    No I haven't, but have you stopped by an Apple Store to ask them about it.

    As much of a pain as it is, you might want to try restoring your phone in iTunes and preferably setting it up as a new device. It may fix your issues. If it doesn't I would definitely take your phone into an Apple Store.

    You might want to stop closing all your apps out as well. They work better if you leave them be. Exceptions for those that misbehave. And just because an app is sitting in multitasking, it doesn't mean it's open or running. Most are not.

    I feel like my 6s is running even better since I updated it to 9.1.

    I mainly only close out apps like snapchat and Facebook and Twitter and they do run in the background and eat up battery life. Especially Facebook.

    Yeah, Facebook has been a pill. And it's still not fixed.

    Do you say goodnight to your apps as you're closing them?

    Could we never use the term "rocking" anything ever again?

    I don't know if it's iOS 9 or not but I'm having intermittent screen responsiveness issues. Seem to be getting more frequent. Example is coming out of an app and swiping only to have the screen not respond for a second. Got a Genius appt Monday morning.

    If that was for me, I've already uninstalled it in favor of a Safari Bookmarklet. While I had it on my phone it was MUCH worse than it is now!
