    Members in this forum have a lot of questions regarding bugs, every device has a different set of bugs, some are fixed and some aren't yet fixed, to make it easy for everyone, I have an good idea for arranging the discovery of bugs on each device. I'll need your help in recognizing bugs on devices I don't have, so that in the end we would have a clear list with the bugs on each device and on the release of new updates, we could see which bugs are fixed so that we would know exactly how many bugs aren't yet fixed.

    Starting with iPhone

    - Bugs with all iPhones :
    - when tapping on the columns in the setting app, there is some sort of a little jump where the setting toggles on the other page appear on a different alignment.
    - Misaligned keyboard when replying to a notification in lockscreen. (Some iPhones)

    1. 4S
    - Spotlight lag
    - scrolling lag

    2. 5
    - Misplaced search bar in spotlight (sometimes)
    - Mobile data page in settings poor scrolling (fixed)

    3. 5s
    - Red flickering when clicking the home button to turn on the lock screen. (Fixed after iOS 9.3 beta 2)
    - Blue / Green flickering when unlocking (not with Touch ID) - (Fixed after iOS 9.3 Beta 2)
    - Blue flickering sometimes occurring when unlocking with Touch ID.
    - Delay in launching the lock screen
    - Settings scrolling bug.
    - Weather app (scrolling lag).

    - Scrolling in Twitter is horrible.
    - Notification Center delay when sliding down. (When reduced motion turned on)
    - Home screen scrolling stutters (when Reduce motion is enabled.)
    - Delay when going back to home screen when leaving safari. (Delay decreased after iOS 9.3 Beta 2)
    - when watching a video in Safari - rotating the screen - shows a part of the website used to activate the video player then back to the video player again.
    - Battery could sometimes die at 10 to 15%.
    - Searching for new updates is sometimes stuck loading.
    - search bar in spotlight sometimes incorrectly positioned (Fixed after iOS 9.3 beta 2)

    And what was wrong with all the other bug threads, for specific releases, which are also wiki posts?

    I didn't say there was something wrong with those posts, they are great and helpful but they actually just include the bugs a new update adds not the bugs of the full system. They don't give the full report, just the information of the specific update (bugs /fixes/ performance improvements). In this thread I want to show each and every bug a user can experience. For example: the weather app the iPhone 5s is so laggy with poor scrolling and stuttering animations, till now I didn't see it included in the bug section of the new update threads.

    This is an impossible task.
    Look through here and you'll see some unknown subset of bugs for iOS http://www.openradar.me

    I have none of those bugs. OP is really hung up on finding and reporting every bug everywhere - I hear he reported an ant in his garden once.

    I won't include bugs that won't affect the user interface, that's why it isn't impossible
    --- Post Merged, Jan 26, 2016 ---
    Funny, well I hear the OP at least posted something helpful.

    The aim is to display a bug checklist (so that every one could know which bugs are fixed and which aren't yet fixed).

    This bug affects every iphone since 9.2:
    It's a cosmetic bug that appear when you tap a voice in settings, for example Facebook, Flickr but also battery, phone, messages and so on. (Not happens in wifi, blueetoth,notifications and the first voices of settings)
    The first time you tap a voice, there is not a smooth slide into the new page, but the principal settings page moves up or down like a little jump.

    You're missing the most annoying one—the outlined keyboard appearing when replying from the lockscreen. Thought it was a 4s thing but is happening on my new 6s too...

    I think I must be the only person that uses the reminders app extensively (in Scheduled view) I have a 6+ And this big has been present since ios8 and persists through 9.2.1. I recently wiped my device and set it up from scratch with the same results.
    When adding new reminders and clicking the "info" button to edit the date and time, it often will edit the date and time for an already created reminder instead of the reminder you intended to edit. Also, sometimes reminders get overwritten by new reminders and there's no way to "undo." This is evident when you see duplicate reminders on your list.

    You just may have different settings, I mentioned the most occurring bugs I saw. I experience most of the bugs, whenever one of the bugs is fixed, I just delete it from the original post or write that it has been fixed. Anyways, I updated the post to include more improvements after iOS 9.3 beta 2.

    First, thank you for the info about the safari crash bug, I'll make sure I update the data in the post. Second, about the lag on a 4 year old device, a device doesn't lag because of its age, it's lags due to less optimisation, the manufacturing company should ensure the device is working fine with the latest software they release even if the device is 3 or more years old, if apple wants to limit the number of iOS updates to 3 instead of 5 for every device, I agree, but apple in the same time should keep the devices in an acceptable condition (usable). iPhone 4 got 4 iOS updates and the last update just ruined it, not even 1 animation throughout the system looks fine and doesn't stutter. If you are saying that lag is normal to be there on a 4 year old device then the lag is supposed to be in games and different apps that require a chip with a higher power.

    Just discover a fix for this bug that affects every iphone:
    - when tapping on the columns in the setting app, there is some sort of a little jump where the setting toggles on the other page appear on a different alignment.

    So, is enough to reduce by one step (or more if you want) the font size in the apposite "accessibility" menu.
    Credits goes to the user r083rt0 of telefonino.net forum!!
    Now I'm very happy with my 5s and ios9, still not fast like ios8 but acceptable.

    Was the size already increased higher than normal prior to that?

    I love when people tell me iOS is not buggy.
    What's this then? Almost after a year the Weather app is constantly with UI bugs...

    Are you blind? :D

    The UI is all messed up, see the photo I attached to that post and compare with yours :) and that happens a lot, after closing (thru app switcher) and restarting the app it goes back to normal...
