    Hi all, updated my iPhone 6 to iOS 8.1 about 6 hours ago, almost immediately after the download went live. iOS 8.1 slowed down my iPhone noticeably and I encountered a number of lags in animations and the like. For example, pulling down the keyboard produces a noticeable stutter. When Safari is in tab view there is noticeable aliasing on the rectangle that represents each tab.

    What are your experiences with iOS 8.1, iPhone 6 users? I'm currently in the process of reverting back to 8.0.2, which ran flawlessly.

    Did you attempt a hard reset (holding both home and lock button or 10-15 seconds) before reverting back? 8.1 on my 6 is 10X better than 8.0.2 was and battery life is even better too.

    6+ performance with 8.1 for me is the same as it was under 8.0.2 which wasn't all that great to begin with.

    Yeah, I did, multiple times. I went back to 8.0.2 and it was back to running extremely well. Then I tried to redownload and reinstall 8.1; same issues. Hard reset three or four times, now reverting back to 8.0.2 for the second time.

    Very bizarre. Everything is extremely fluid on my device.

    Question: did you upgrade via iTunes or over-the-air?

    Add me as well. My 6 is perfect on 8.1.

    I updated via OTA.

    I did an OTA update from 8.1 B2. Performance is fluid.

    OP needs to do a hard reset.

    OTA. Did a hard reset right after then a soft reset about 20 minutes later. Golden.

    It could be the spotlight stuff indexing.

    What it was for me. Try disabling most of the unused garbage for that in settings and reset, should speed it up.
