    For me, yes.

    As to how to speed it up, I'm sure the only answer is to get the iPhone 6S Plus.

    They probably design the new OS around the newest hardware it will run on.

    I just wish they'd tweak the OS to keep the same speed for iPhone 6 Plus.

    The 6 plus was always notably slow
    For me. Truthfully I felt iOS 9 improved performance though. It certainly didn't feel worse than iOS 8.

    Try setting up as new. You can always revert back to your backup if it doesn't help.

    MIGHT HAVE A FIX!

    I checked my settings and apparently my profile was a "beta profile"

    I deleted it, and my iPhone 6 Plus SEEMS faster.

    Will update as I use my iPhone throughout the day!

    Also, just a quick thought, make sure battery saver isn't active.

    Does low battery mode slow it down noticeably?

    I notice lag when double tapping home to get to multi task.

    Overall though deleting the beta profile has so far been a win...

    Low battery mode throttles the processor. I didn't mess with it at all, so I can't say from personal experience, but it stands to reason that you would notice a performance decrease, otherwise it would just be the standard setting I would think.

    9.1 will bring it's speed back. Source: I'm using 9.1 beta 2 and its noticeably quicker overall than 9.0.1.

    I don't have a iPhone 6 but I do have a 5S and mine is a lot slower when playing games. The games are constantly freezing and are choppy. Never had a problem til I upgraded to the latest version of IOS. A little bit BS if you ask me.
