How 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.

Ah okay that's not bad then! I thought you paid $100 or more for that or something. In that case, not worth it. But $30? Pretty good deal..

I couldn't afford a 6 so I went with a 5. Family friend offered it. Has some scuffs but I can deal lol

Wow nice deal! I find 9.1 on my old iPT5 to be about the same as 8.4 was, probably because Apple left out a bunch of useless junk like swipe right to search for older devices. I wish I could get that slimmed down of 9.1 on my other iOS devices, they would probably fly instead of lag like they do now. I don't think you'll notice much difference if you decide to update.

I just bought an iPod touch 5G with iOS 8.3. Should I update to iOS 9?
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.
