    I am curious to know how the 5s handles the latest and greatest. I am currently still running 8.4.1 on mine, but had 9 and also PB2 running before Apple stopped signing iOS 8. I know that iOS 9 wasn't all that great for this model, at least in my case.

    If iOS 9.1 is smooth and fluid on the 5s, I will upgrade eventually. Since Apple did (and does) stop signing the older software, I'm hesitant to dive right in.

    No issues. A lot smoother than 9.0.2.

    I have noticed a VERY slight lag with the quick reply function and pulling down Notification Center, but the amount my battery life has improved makes me not care about those in the slightest

    After all positive replies I've read, I also should tell you their is some 5s owners who complain from battery drain and there's a report for Touch ID non-recognition, so I would advise to wait till 9.2 be out for better and reliable usage
    I am having 4s, and still on 8.4 as it's an older phone than 5s.

    I had no problem with Touch ID with my iPhone 5S and iOS 9.1. I did re-setup my fingers when I upgraded the OS. Maybe that is why?

    It runs smooth for the most part. My wife has a 6 and hers runs a bit quicker and smoother than the 5S I use.. Just a slight lag in animations sometimes.. Where on her 6 it's always smooth like butter!

    9.1 was ok on my 5s, a little sluggish. The 9.2 beta is faster and my iPhone runs like it should.
