I just bought an iPod touch 5G with iOS 8.3. Should I update to iOS 9?
I paid 30$ for it. iCloud unlocked and 32 GBHow much did you buy this iPod for? I'd see if you can get your money back and buy a 6th gen... iPod 6th gen is closer to iPhone 5S/6 performance with twice the RAM, and iPod 5 is the same as the iPhone 4S. Im quite certain this is the last year it will be supported, while the 6th gen still should get at least a few more years.
Anyway, I would wait till iOS 9.2 comes out before upgrading your iPod. 9.2 is bringing about quite a bit in terms of performance improvements.
I would update it to IOS 9. I updated my fifth generation to IOS 9 and can't tell a difference in performance. In some ways, I think it made mine a little bit faster. Since 9.2 is getting a little bit better performance wise, I would wait till that comes out before you should update.
