I've had the iPhone 6 since launch. zero issues, very fast and responsive. since installing 10.2.1, EVERYTHING is slow. opening apps, animations, response. I know how my phone acted throughout all the updates, it's really noticeable with the latest update.

anyone else? (obviously iP6 or previous).

the majority of the time that i've seen anyone's phone get slower with an update, there was a file corruption issue or the device is so old that the battery had already reached consumption and it was dumb luck that they noticed it right after an update. or even a combo of the two.

My iPhone 6 now gets lag, even in the keyboard sometimes.

Battery life is way down, too... used to end the day around 30-40%, now it's dead by supper.

Some irritating bugs as well.

Fresh install through iTunes, not even restored from backup.

I feel like updates can really mess up an older device if it's got any hardware issues. Battery is going, logic board, something else you don't even know about that's on its way to failure...

Multi-core should be around 2400 so there does seem to be a problem. You may have to reset or restore.

had swiftkey keyboard on since it was available with no issues - really loved this keyboard. now the keyboard takes a few seconds to pop-up (even if i switched to the apple keyboard). i start typing and it doesn't register the first couple of letters.

youtube doesn't rotate as quickly as it used to when watching videos.

scrolling through facebook lags and sometimes while scrolling it thinks i clicked so it opens up the story/page/whatever it thinks i clicked.

not able to open the camera app from swiping to the side for the shortcut. i sometimes swipe 5-6 times before it reacts. then will stay blurry like i'm swiping between video or photo but nothing opens. with a 15 month old, you need to be quick to catch those moments.

already restored it last week, no change. like i mentioned, i've had this iPhone since launch and really enjoyed it. no issues at all. i know how it performs. since the update, it's been a totally different phone.

i know it will last until the new iPhone will be announced but hopefully one of the new updates can fix. hopefully they're not already trying to put the iPhone 6 in it's coffin.

I've noticed this with my 6 as well. Absolutely fine on 10.2. Now getting noticeable lag, stutters and delays to keyboard input.

Not good.
and it will be more slower,laggy on IOS 11.

Same here. Major typing lag introduced on both my iPhone 6 and iPad mini after installing 10.2, still persisting on 10.3.1 on both devices.

I should note, however, that overall performance is unaffected; just typing lag.
