Interesting that I didn't need to reboot my device after removing the public beta profile to get the update.

Small update probably small under the hood fixes. Already installed on my 6S Plus. Seems the same. Don't really notice any performance improvements.

I wasn't expecting another update until at least tomorrow, and I was thinking it'd likely be next week. I was caught slightly off guard in a very good way. I'll be installed this version of the beta later today when I get home.

Control center stutter fixed yet? On iPhone 6 and below.

I only updated my Air 2 to 9.2.1 B2 and multitasking menu is jumpy.

This will probably be my last post on this forum, as i have moved on. You need to accept the fact this will never change NEVER! Timmy is out to make more products and more money for shareholders, his Apple doesn't care if your phone lags/stutters everywhere that would make him profit in the near future by you upgrading, and you will as will other users in these forums! if you think about it's smart, Apple users are easily manipulated by Apple IMHO that will never change, for one that leaves 10 will join. Your only hope is something comes out of the class action lawsuit https://www.macrumors.com/2015/12/29/ios9-iphone-4s-lawsuit/

Even if that is not money hopefully the option to downgrade the 4S and other models to an ios of their liking.

downgrade is ****. because current apps not support very old iOS version.

the developer dont need support old ios version, because many developer using e.g new sdk or create swift apps. this app not support old ios version.

Lotta same issues over and over. Is the prevailing theory that all the good devs mostly work on the next version, ios10 than this? And it just continues to perpetuate every ios release over and over

Any gripes about lag should be banned. Ruins the point of any discussion post. Really.

I understand that it's valid to make a statement on if there is an improvement or not on the lag front but the endless discussion is so tiresome.

It would be much easier if these release posts just had a poll attached to them so you could vote if lag is improved, worsened, or stayed the same. No need to discuss it unless there is a serious new lag issue affecting mainstream usability!

Delete your public beta profile and reboot. You can then update.
