    im giving my iPhone 5 to another family member once I get the new iPhone today
    Should I restore to iOS 9 or give them the phone with iOS 8 and tell them never to upgrade ?

    Depends if you hate them or not?

    Hate = give them iOS9

    I can't advise about the 5, but the 5s was excellent on 9.1b2. As good as 8.4

    I would stay with what you have. My 5 and 5s are on 9.0.1 and I wish I'd stayed with 8.4.

    iOS9 runs great on my wife's iPhone 5. Just go with the latest and greatest.

    Keep it on iOS 8. iPhones run slow after 2 upgrades so it is best to keep it on 8 since the iPhone 5 shipped with iOS 6. Look at the iPhone 4S, it runs like crap after 3 upgrades (iOS 7).
