    Heres my question. I have the 6 plus on 8.4. I've been thinking about going to the 6 s plus, but when I come here I see all these "bug" threads. Is it that buggy? Or it it the iOS ? I love the way my phone runs on iOS 8.4. I am just starting to see people saying their phones randomly shut off, hot home buttons, bad speaker quality. What gives? Is it the phone or iOS issues? Any thoughts would be great

    I can honestly say that I've not come across any issues, hardware or software. This is the best iPhone I've ever had, and I had plenty ofnissuesnwith the 6 plus.

    I can't say that the forums are any more littered with "issue threads" than they normally are at this time after a launch.

    Most common post is when someone is unsatisfied with something - thus a lot of bug threads. I haven't made a thread that says. I don't have any problems with my iPhone. BTW all software will have some degree of bugs.

    It is buggy iOS. If stability is your priority, keep it on 8.4 and see what people say after 9.1 is released.

    I have had no problems with my 6s Plus and I also believe it is the best iPhone I've ever had.

    Forums like this tend to have people who post their problems real and imaginary. There were about 13 million phones activated the first weekend. 99.9% of the people have not posted on a forum like this because they have had no problems.

    Nothing is perfect but I echo the other sentiments here, the 6S+ is superb. If you love your 6+ then you'll love this even more.

    Mine is awesome! But I did not restore from backup this time. I'm starting to think that some of the issues I had with my 6 Plus were due to the fact I had restored a backup to the new phone.

    On the other hand, my husband restored from backup onto his new 128 GB 6S plus and has had no problems...yet, knock wood!

    We are both on AT&T. If that makes any difference.

    I tried my 6+ for a whole day with no backup and it performed every bit as badly as it had with the backup on, so I promptly reinstalled it. My 6S+ has the same backup and performs like a champ.

    I think there may be some hardware / bad factory products that got out, which seems be unavoidable like in any other automated factory.
    Then there are those that is caused by user error. Then there are some caused by OCD. The latter is the most ****ing annoying.

    Of course, problem threads are amplified online. Do you know that "no problem" thread tend to get buried? I got exactly two replies. Nothing spectacular when things are working.

    Oh there goes that theory then. When I was using a 16 GB 6 Plus that the Apple Store let me have while mine was undergoing a screen replacement, it worked fairly well for me. But I was not using it for much as I didn't bother to load anything on it.

    Only thing that is really pissing me off, app store keeps asking for my password/fingerprint when downloading free apps.
    If anyone knows why would be greatly appreciated

    And 99.7% of the 99.9% don't know how to.
    The only bug to really be concerned about if the random shut off - this one could cost you. Stay tuned.

    The overwhelming majority of phones are running perfectly. This isn't a good place to go to get an objective idea of what the phone/OS is like -- as a previous poster said, people rarely, if ever, start threads like "Everything is running great".

    Review after review, from engadget, cnet, fortune, the verge, etc, give the 6S/6SPlus stellar reviews, many outright claiming it to be the best smartphone on the market today.

    I've had my 6S Plus since the day of launch (upgrading from a 6 Plus) and I absolutely love it.

    If you're using TouchID for device unlocking and iTunes purchases, then you have to use it every time, even for free apps - if you disable TouchID for those two functions, you'll see an additional Password option under the Settings for Apps and iTunes that let you set "No Password for Free Apps".

    i.e., You can't combine Unlock + iTunes TouchID with the "No Password" option. Seems like a non-issue to me with TouchID, validating a download is more-or-more instant.

    Same here (also a 6S+ owner), other than taking some time to get used to the new features and sort out some settings (which is always part of an upgrade), the device has performed beyond my expectations.

    Wife seems to love her 6S too and hasn't reported any issues (I'm family tech support :))

    I still feel like I never charge it yet it's always charged :D

    Get the 6S+ and you chances are very good you will be happy. While forums like these seem to amplify the number of problems, I have not ha a singale issue with mine and am very happy. You got 14 days to decide and if you do not like it, you can return.

    Best of luck and ENJOY!

    As someone who uses the phone for very basic functions (texting, camera, email, Facebook, alarms, web) I can tell you that I've not experienced a single "bug" since I upgraded. I have a new 6S Plus and I restored from a back-up (always have with no issues).

    I can't think of a single bug. Maybe I haven't noticed? But I doubt it.

    Nothing has froze. No apps have crashed.

    Everything is rosy in my world.
