    Hey there.
    I just got iOS 9 for my iPad Air and it's amazing. I was wondering about my iPhone 5 though, should I update? Does it work properly? I heard that one of the main features of iOS 9 is compatibility so what do you say?

    Thank you!

    Sure. It's great! No issues whatsoever on my iPad mini 1. I think your 5 will be fine since it's to old to be affected by the Metal performance issues that plague the newer 64bit devices.

    Think so.

    I've seen it run iOS 9 much smoother than newer devices.

    Jump in, it's great. Did an OTA update leaving everything in-place and all is well and smooth.

    Only disappointment is finding out that content blocker isn't compatible with iPhone 5, only 5S or later. Time to upgrade I guess.
