    I'm sick of all the lag on this OS. The control center is especially laggy. 9.3 has improved it alot but I'm having battery drain. I wish apple would let people downgrade to iOS 8 because i'm sick of this slow OS.

    Thankfully, I'm not experiencing lag, battery drainage or slowness in my iPhone 6S Plus. Have you tried restoring your iPhone 6 and setting it up as new, and not from a backup?

    I'm not experiencing lag on my iPhone 6s Plus. You should restore as new. Not from a back up. I did! Made a big difference. It's a pain, but worth it.

    I always restore when I update. Things always are a tad faster but are still slow. Especially the control center.

    I do experience lag on my iPhone 6S Plus when the home screen rotates. The screen around the dock flickers.

    She meant "needing a restore" as being the issue.

    I still see lag on my 6.

    No offense to anyone, but I roll my eyes the minute a new software update rolls out and someone posts "seems faster" or "no more lag!". 99% of the time, its placebo. I think freshly restored phones are slightly snappier because apps haven't been installed, caches cleared and occasional OS corruption is fixed.

    I was pissed when iOS9 was released. All that talk about optimizing for older iPhones was nothing more than BS.

    None taken, but what about those of us whose devices really are snappy and lag-free? Some of us are keen at tweaking the settings to fit our needs and don't have a gazillion pics, videos and apps loaded on our devices. Know what I mean?

    When I first got my 6s Plus, I set it up with the back up of my iPhone 5. It was horrible. I had several issues, including sluggishness. After 3 days, I restored as new. Not from a back up. It's been great ever since. Smoooth, no lag. I have 272 downloaded apps. Works great. I'm a heavy user. Retired and on my phone most of the time. A fresh copy of the OS does indeed help. These phones are just small computers. They must be treated as such. No matter what platform or brand. None are perfect. But they sure are nice and do a splendid job.

    Thankfully, I'm not experiencing any lag on my 6. I didn't even restore through iTunes when I got it a couple weeks ago like I normally do. I likely will when I get 9.3 though just for GP. Not really that big of a deal to me to restore because i install the same 25 or so apps no matter what device or platform I'm on at the moment.

    9.3 really did better job with the OS being more fluid.
    Intrigued to do fresh install in some point to see how it affects daily use.
    Only thing thing stopping me doing that is I have about 1.7k pictures on my phone. I'm using Google pics to take backups tho so I guess I could return to those pictures when ever needed should I reset the phone completely.

    The only lag I've experienced on my 5 is when sending an email. When I type a recipient name, it takes forever for matches to start showing.

    No lag here on my 6s. Is it lagging all the time or only specific instances?

    Try android phones, and you will know what lag is. After using android phones, I think iOS is better. Still using Note3,S6,Kyocera hydro wave, iPhone 6S and 5.

    All my apps and web pages are slow to pop up, both on my iPhone 6# and iPad, It is annoying but not a major issue.
