    Does anyone here have any feedback on battery life with their Air 2 on 9.3.3 vs. 8.4.1? I got noticeably less battery life with the iOS 9 betas and kept my Air 2 on 8.4.1. I'm thinking about updating, but don't want a big battery life hit like I experienced with the iOS 9 betas.

    Personally, I haven't noticed any battery decline on either my iPad mini 4 or iPhone 6. I wouldn't judge anything based on betas. That's why they're betas, to work out the bugs.

    Well, the Mini 4 was always iOS 9. ;) I agree on the iPhone 6. I have two identical iPhone 6 phones and iOS 9 has pretty much delivered the same battery life as 8.4.1, even in the original beta. I got about half the battery life with the Air 2, though, and have been a little skittish.

    LOL. Sorry, you're right. I forgot for a moment that the Mini 4 shipped with 9. My bad.
