    Did not notice any difference than iOS8. The 5 has smaller battery than even the 5c, so considering its age, not bad.

    Fairly shocking. 3-4 hours if I'm not conservative, 5-6 if I try really really hard.

    How is your performance on ios9? Did you experience a significant drop in performance, or do u think tht it s quiet ok? How is safari usage with the phone? Do you need to reload all the time every tab?

    Reloading is not improved. Performance is not that much worse, but it does stutter more.

    Performance will definitely be worse then :p

    I'd advise you to wait for the moment I think - Probably worth going to 9 before 10 comes out (in case 10 is even slower on the 5).

    10 will definitely be slower, but 9.2.1 is nice on a four year old device that is the iPhone 5. Apps launch a bit slower but the device has 1 GB RAM which is still very sufficient and a capable GPU. In fact it runs 9 much better than iPad Air 1 that is more recent and 64bit.

    The reason why I still did not update my Iphone 5 is that it performs really awesome for my needs: okay if I keep that I still have ios 7 in mind it s normal of course. I have ios 8.4.1 on my ipad 4 and I realize that the performance is not the very best, but I am won t complain so much about it. I was thinking about buying the new 6s however I don t see the reason to spend my money on this phone at the moment since I am quite satisfied. I was thinking about investing in a new battery in the next couple of months, since I started to notice that my battery is suffering a bit with it's age (330 load cycles in total). What do you think guys?

    @mich070:

    Your argument is absolutely understandable. I did not update for the same reason. One of my 5S' is still on an old OS. If you are satisfied with your 5S, then I don't see any reason to upgrade.

    Have an iPhone 5 running iOS9.2.1 quite beautifully. I chose to not restore from my iCloud backup - not sure if that's the reason, but to me it is about as snippy as iOS7 or iOS8.4.1 ever was.

    iOS 9.3 beta 2 is far worse than 9.2.1, which is weird because on the 5S and 6, 9.3 beta 2 is a lot better. It's really noticeable. Notification Center and Control Center are laggy on 9.3 beta 2, it was buttery smooth previously.

    One explanation: The iPhone 5 is a 32 bit device - the iPhone 5S, a 64bit device.
