Ever since upgrading to iOS 9 my Iphone 6 has this weird behavior were I would unlock the phone and the screen will just freeze, no touch response , nothing. It takes about 30-60 seconds to be able to use the phone again. I even tried the 9.1 b4, same result. This happens to me at least 11 times a day... which is a lot.

Has someone else experienced something similar?

And yes, I did try full restore, back up, etc etc etc, including a phone swap.

My 6S just froze randomly when I rebooted my phone to try and fix Siri which wasn't working for me. When the home screen popped up, it was very slow and I was barely able to navigate at all. Everything kept freezing 5-8 seconds. I tried to do a hard reset but the issue persisted when it turned back on. I decided to do a reset all settings and after it competed, it seemed ok. No issues so far afterwards. Was your issue similar to this?

I've had freezing issues after a restore on multiple phones (the new 6s and the 6 plus) with iOS9. In both cases, resetting all settings in the general menu resolved the issues for me. In the case of the 6 plus, I had some lagging issues on iOS8 as well, but after resetting all the settings, I don't think that I found any additional lag issues on iOS9.

For the two posts above...

I ended up doing a fresh install of 9.0.2 and so far so good. No more stuck screens, freezes , etc. Probably the betas didn't like my phone.

I setup my 6S as a new phone when I got it to avoid bugs such as these but it appears it didn't matter. So far so good since reset all settings yesterday.
