    Ok so the day i downloaded iOS 6 i thought it was great, nothing too dramatic, i liked all the small new incrimented new things they did. Still not a fan of the maps, but i do love that they have turn by turn so i guess i do like maps somewhat :p

    Anyway over the past 3 days i've noticed that my phone (4s) has been lagging on things a lot. Exiting an app, switching pages on the home screen, sending an iMessage, bringing up the keyboard, waking it up from sleep, unlocking it.

    Its already to the point that its locked up a few times and i've had to restart it. I tried searching the forums and the only thing i could find was someone having a 1 second lag when pressing the home button exiting a very graphic intensive app/game.

    These lags i'm getting last anywhere from 4 seconds to 15. I've never had a problem like this before on my 4s. Has anyone else on their 4s experienced this?
    Even my wife who just has a 4 is not having these issues.

    I'd rather not wipe it then restore from backup mainly because i sold my computer that had my itunes account on it, so i don't really have a way of getting the music back on my phone. I was just going to create a different user on my wife's PC and setting up a new iTunes there, but thats a huge hassle.

    If its really what i need to do, then i will but as i'm sure everyone here would always want to take the easier route.

    tl;dr - my 4s lags with simple tasks about 4 to 15 seconds at a time since iOS 6, very annoying, what can i do besides reset and restore from back up?

    EDIT: just found out my wife's 4 has been having these lagging moments as well. HAHA

    Do you use iCloud? What I wold do is disable all iClouds first to see if it helps.

    actually the only thing on iCloud that is on is photo stream, contacts and find my iPhone.

    I guess that photo stream is really the only new thing to that list that is on. and its only the shared photo stream of which i have maybe about 6 pictures shared with just my wife.

    Try deleting the cache. That's what helped my girlfriend's 4s after she restored it from a backup.

    Settings - > Reset - > Reset all settings.

    Ended up turning off Shared Photo Stream. This seem to definitely help a bit (which sucks because i thought shared photo stream was great), saw a small stutter here and there still so i did reset all setting.

    Didn't realize how many settings i had to change back as far as notifications are concerned haha


    Thanks guys, hopefully this helps and i won't have to add any updates to this thread

    Be sure you have at least 2 gigs available in the phone. I think if space is too low, it will lag like that.

    Any reason why it lags if there is less than 2 gigs?
