    Have they fixed 3D touch performance issue? (especially in landscape mode) From what I've read from other threads, battery life doesn't seem to have changed much.

    I tried to change my lockscreen wallpaper to a live photo, but somehow it acted weirdly, keeping my old static photo and when I used 3D touch, the live photo still works. it was bizarre. I restarted the phone and changed the wallpaper again, it's all fine now.

    Battery life is great for me on 9.3, doesn't seem to be any worse than 9.2.1, I got almost 13 hours of usage with over 36 hours of standby, I'm happy with that.

    3D touch on landscape works fine, I didn't feel any particular lag.

    My battery life changed alot!
    On 9.2.1 i got around 7-8 hours on normal use and now on 9.3 its better!:

    And the second time even better!:

    And that on my 6S plus with samsung chip.
    They improved efficiency.

    Portrait mode is good as always, but landscape sucks balls. What's more funny is that i never had that landscape glitch before 9.3, but now i do.

    It great... except landscape 3D touch lags and battery is AWEFUL. Makes phone pretty much useless for my job, need to go out and invest in a battery pack...

    Well, my battery life is def. a lot less and when I turn off my podcast player on my earpod remote the iOS music player starts instead.... sigh (7 betas was 't enough to get a proper iOS update!)

    Battery life is usually lower right after installing a new update because of indexing and other background processes.

    Lag on landscape 3D touch is still there. Obvious. I hate it.
    And rarely, iPhone 6s Plus will lock itself in landscape mode, when rotation lock is on. A few apps may have messed up layout like health app, but landscape 3D touch lag is gone. Locking and unlocking iPhone doesnt change this state. I think it is interesting.
    Other than this, no serious bug.

    Hi all new here. If you did not know, I have found that the 3D Touch lag in landscape mode has something to do with Siri Suggestions. If you go into settings and turn Siri Suggestions off, that lag will be gone. I didnt want Siri Suggestions to be turned off, but I would rather it be off than to have that lag. I have talked to Apple Support about this issue and she said she would forward the information to the Apple engineers so hopefully a fix is on the way. Hope this helps!

    Nice one. One step further, what I experienced on my 6s+ is that if I scroll left and display the search screen with the Siri suggestions then the lag is not so noticeable.

    Battery on iOS 9.3 for my 6S Plus has been amazing. Not sure what's wrong with those of you with bad battery life but it's definitely not with iOS 9.3:

    9.3 has been a very good update. I tested all the betas and now am running the public release. Battery life on the final is amazing, I am seeing the same stats as those posted above. Lag in landscape 3D Touch is still happening sometimes, but sure they will figure it out soon.
