    Has anyone else found that their phone seems sluggish since upgrading to the new OS yesterday. I have an iPhone 4 w/ 32 gb.

    Also after the update process when I updated some of the apps the update process froze on a couple of them like Pages which I had to uninstall and then re-install to get it to work.

    Restore as new (not from backup).

    Alot of the times it's old clutter clogging up your phones performance.

    iOS 6 flies for me on my 4S :)

    I have a 16GB iPhone4 that recently updated to iOS 6 and it's been OK. I wouldn't say it's any faster, but not noticeably slower. I did have some problems with some apps updating yesterday, but I can only assume that was everyone hammering the servers for updates and software downloads.

    New iOS versions always runs like crap on the old phones.

    My 4 seems faster.... It automatically re-configured from the cloud, didn't even give me a choice, but I did start the install and walked away, so maybe it prompted me and timed out?
    I like the new features, but kinda ticked they didn't give us 4 owners Siri, since now it seems AT&T only offers the 4S in 16gb....

    Updated to iOS 6 last night on my 3GS.
    Things are a bit quicker / snappier since the install.

    I have an iPhone 4S 16GB. Mine has been faaaast. It's a big improvement. Safari goes by in a blur, the new maps app loads in an instant. The update has been a big positive for me.

    All good for my 4s.

    Seamless update and the phone does feel snappier.

    My 4S runs better on iOS6.

    Faster. Smooth as butter!

    No complaints here. I feel like I have a new phone!
