    Default IOS 9 sluggish?

    Anyone else think that apps seem to take a bit longer to load?

    Definetly. Despite Apple's promises of 'foundation' iOS 9 runs slower (on a clean install) then iOS 8.4.1 on the iPad 2, iPhone 5 and iPad mini 2. I believe that for some people, iOS 9 have sped up a dodgy install of iOS 8 though.

    This is why apple should not tie releasing iOS to the release of the iPhone, as neither iOS 8 and 9 were ready for release. iOS 7 was a bit better (I had iOS 7 on my iPhone 4 and iPad 2, which were the oldest two devices to run it) but still questionable in terms of release quality.

    Default IOS 9 sluggish?

    iOS 9.1 speeds things up again. The ios9 betas were fairly quick, but the GM AND the public release are slower.
    They seemed to return things to normal in the 9.1 beta.

    My slowest device is a 4S. It's not too bad with 9.1
    Something about Jimby.

    Is your 4S as fast as 8.4.1 with 9.1? I don't see why the A5 devices should be any slower given there are no new power consuming features.

    What really really does my head in is the stupid delay when you tap an app icon. Its been around since iOS 8 for me (on my iPad 2 for example, when launching certain 3rd party apps), but now every single App in iOS 9 on my iPad 2 (before I downgraded) and on Mini 2 do it, and it really makes the device feel super slow.

    My point exactly. Every app takes longer. That's on an iPhone 6

    Personally I would like to know what Apple spent the last year doing. iOS 8 was slower but it had heaps of new features.. iOS 9 (besides on iPads) has far fewer, and actually had a focus on better performance, yet its slower somehow.

    Yes, I agree. I find a lag in typing text eg. Address book search. Most annoying, even on my new "super fast" iPhone 6s it's slow.
    makes one wonder why we keep shelling out heaps of cash for new devices.
    hopefully 9.2 will fix the problem.

    This is a big shame given iOS 9 has so few new features, especially on older devices - I assumed this was because improved stability/performance was going to be one of the biggest feature.

    Agreed, I was taking to a tech guy this morning who uses PCs and he was saying what a mess Windows 10 was. I replied saying that OXS and iOS updates are more quickly adapted by Mac users because of the trust in a quality product that's been built up. I hope that trust will not be disappointed by less than ready products, which has always been the domain of Windows.

    All my devices are now on iOS 9.0.1, and seem to be running very well...a little faster, in fact. I generally like the new features, although some of the changes take a little getting used to...also seems very stable so far.
