    Has anybody else noticed this since the update yesterday?
    Since updating to iOS5, then to 5.1, my iPod has been painfully slow.

    The 5.1.1 update seems to of de-clogged it.
    Does anybody else agree? Or even know why?

    I just completed my iPod Touch update. Yes, I think it is snappier and faster.

    Home Button better.

    I also noticed that my HOME button is more responsive. Prior to 5.1.1, sometimes I would have to click the HOME button twice to awake my iPod Touch. It's still under warranty and I was thinking of bringing it in. Now I just click once.


    Good Job Apple. Thank you. :apple:

    There might be something wrong with my iTouch as its just as painfully slow as it was on 5.1. :confused:

    Either that, or you guys are suffering from the post update ItFeelsSnappier™ placebo effect.

    No placebo effect! It's for real; just like when my battery life improved with 5.0.

    Maybe you and TheSuperSteve should try restoring; instead of updating your FW.

    Is your iPod Touch jail-broken? My is not jail-broken. I have read that some people think their iPods are little slower when jail-broken.

    nope, l never jailbroke this iPod. I tried to swicht off iTunes match. it helps but still slower. I notice it when unlock the iPod to change the song, most of times the unlock animation stops at the end and freezes for 4-5 seconds.

    thanks!

    Just restore and set up iPod as a new one, it'll do wonders for speed and release some "Other" space.

    Well, I have to agree it was much faster, now it has slowed down again. :(

    AS tehpea says
