    I upgraded from 8.4 to 9.2 recently and have noticed a slight, but significant bit of lag and choppiness when scrolling through large lists or switching between apps. Particularly in the Music app, scrolling through my list of artists creates a bit of choppiness instead of scrolling smooth as butter like it did on 8.4

    I'm regretting the upgrade, but nothing I can do about it now. I even restored my phone back to factory settings to see if a clean install would help. Not much better. Anyone else experiencing this or know how to improve performance on 9.2? Thanks!

    Welcome to the stutterfest and lagfest OS called iOS 9

    Something I've noticed in recent weeks is an annoying freeze when scrolling in Safari, particularly on my iPhone 5.

    Every so often, the screen will just freeze. Several seconds later, it's back to normal. Someone else here suggested it was due to too many ways to interact with the touchscreen due to 3D Touch. I wish Apple would buck up; I'm getting fed up with the shoddy quality of their software.

    A known issue.The Music App has atrociously bad lag.Even my Nexus 5 scrolls libraries better than that POS

    Every time they fix something, they break it in the next release. I missed the iOS 6 music app when 7 came out and turned the whole thing on its head. I personally felt like they got it right again with 8.4, but now 9.2 takes it back a step with the added bonus of stutter and lag.

    I've submitted a number of Apple Music bugs to Apple. Some are duplicates, others I'm waiting to hear back. I'm one of the few who actually mostly enjoys Apple Music and wants it succeed. Though there are some annoying bugs , including the stuttering in certain sections.
