    My iPhone 6 Plus is laggy as hell. All the time. Even after clean restore without backup. My iP6+ feels line an iPhone 3GS.

    Anyone else having performing issuess on iOS 8.3?

    My iPhone 6 and iPad Air 2 are both updated and both are snappy. Being that we are creatures of habit, do you think maybe your issue stems from something you're doing? Could you outline your iPhone management routine? Someone might be able to help if we had more info.

    I had this with 8.2 on my 6p. I had to factory reset it and spend a day setting it up as it was before. It's very fast still with 8.3 update.

    Same here on my iPhone 6 plus. New our worsend problems on ios 8.3:
    -safari's "loading bar" stuck on 1/7 of its length. And sometimes stops loading and I have to reload safari to process the webpage. Safari in general is slow as always.
    -lots of stutters in the multitasking view. The happens on a regular basis and with both animations and transparency turned off!
    -Swype accessible but not giving any text in the text box.
    I don't know starting to give up on ios....

    ^^ Since I updated to iOS8.3 I always got this NO SIM. This never happened on iOS8.2 Also the OS itself ramdomly crash. Sometimes while listening to music, while using endomondo, etc.

    Quite the opposite. My 6+ runs the best it ever has done on 8.3, and by a country mile. There are still issues of course but I wouldn't swap 8.3 for any other iteration of iOS8. It's way better.


    I've had all of those problems with every version of iOS8, and the Safari hanging whilst loading webpages issue has been present since iOS4 and with three different versions of the iPhone for me.
    iOS8 is still full of bugs, but 8.3 is head and shoulders above previous versions released since last September.

    Must be something with your phone and with what you've got installed. 8.3 on my 6 Plus is way better than it was on 8.2 and 8.2 wasn't all that bad either.

    Nope. Doing great. And I finally upgraded my iPad 3 to iOS 8 with the release of 8.3. Much better than my last attempt on 8.0 when I restored back to 7.x because of lag.

    Not sure what's going on with yours.

    No problems here with 8.3.

    Folks need to keep in mind apps and iOS are two different things. If you can't reproduce the problem with a new install and no third-party apps then your problem is probably not iOS. ;)

    My 6+ seems about the same from an OS speed perspective BUT my iPad Mini 2 has a definite home screen lag/stutter and other OS operations are a hit/miss.

    Did you try turning off transparency and animations to see if there is a difference?

    Yep -done all that "speed" stuff on both. :confused:

    Side note: My wife's iPad 4 does show this issue to a lesser degree but her iPad 3 is worse than my Mini. This makes me think it is not a specific device fault.

    Definitely not specific to your device. My iPhone runs much better than my iPad, which is kind of ironic since my iPad is newer.

    8.3 hasn't changed anything for me performance wise on either my iPad mini 2 or iPhone 6. Very disappointing to me as many said it "Breathed life" into their device. 8.2 changed very little as well. iOS 8 as a whole is a huge hellstew of bugs and performance issues (mostly on iPad) still, let's face it people.
