    Apple music app aside and the streaming service, how's it working performance wise?

    Had to downgrade to 8.3 because of performance issues after using music for 10-15 minutes.

    Tried DFU restore without reverting to a backup and it was the same thing.

    I'm getting serious battery drain, I think primarily from Waze -- looking at usage, that app seems be hitting the battery even harder than usual. (It also couldn't get a GPS signal the first time I used it after the update, but that resolved itself.)

    My iPhone 5 is OK. Performance seems identical to iOS 8.3 which is good enough for me.

    Apps are stable as well. Music is OK.

    Though i should mention that i upgraded from iOS 8.3 to 8.4 by first backing up to iTunes, putting the iPhone 5 in DFU mode then and updating to the new version. Then i restored from the backup.

    In my experience this is just a tad better than OTA and standart update over iTunes.

    I am anxiously awaiting iOS 9 beta 3 next week. I downgraded from 9 beta 2 to 8.4 so that I could get the new Music app, and this thing feels like a slug compared to iOS 9.

    Why is Beats1 the only radion station that's working? No other station works!

    Im also using a iPhone 6 and do not have any issues with it. Seems to only be effecting certain devices. Possibly carrier specific?

    iPhone 6 on 8.4 gets really slow after closing the music app. Anyone have that problem?

    Two iPhone 6s here, no problems, but per the original post I don't often use the music app on my phones.

    Yes! We are having that same exact problem over in this thread http://forums.macrumors.com/threads/ios-8-4-terrible-lag-iphone-6-ipad-air-2.1896401/

    Music app works fine for a bit, then things start to get really laggy when switching between music app and other apps. Even things like unlocking the phone or bringing up the multitasking UI is painfully slow.

    No slowness here after closing music app, although I don't use Apple Music either so not sure if that attributes to it.

    Since it has been 2 days already for me i can also report that my battery life is better than iOS 8.3 under similar usage with all the same settings. However i haven't tried extensive GPS usage yet.

    It is worse, but ordinary Joes won't notice, like they don't notice Safari reloading more often.
    The world is a perfect place for Joe.

    Or it's not actually worse for many people.

    It seems to have murdered my battery, and I haven't even opened the new music app yet.

    Performance seems to be snappier on both my iPad Air 2 and 6 plus. But battery is definitely worse on the 6 plus.

    installed it on my 6+ and rMini, i guess ill find out.

    after wayyy too many attempts, 6+ jailbroken again. rMini i gave up for now, will retry another day. too much time spent on that one.

    not as smooth a jb process as 8.3 in my experience

    It's only worse only for people who can't set up or operate a smart phone. :rolleyes:

    Not necessarily. Sometimes there are various oddities here or there that happen with computers (since an iOS device is really a computer essentially).

    It's smoother but slower. Apps run fine but any activity involving the home or lock screen; animations are slower. Instead of "snap!" I'm getting "swoosh...". I'm still getting CoreTime events, Jetsam events have decreased, and the jury is out on Safari.
