Hello !
I'm using iPhone 6 plus 64 gigs , and I on iOS 8.3 I didn't update because I was reading here that people compliant about battery drain .
My iPhone the battery life on iOS 8.3 almost full day with very hard use like YouTube ,browsing the web , some games , and ofcors music .
So my question is if I update to iOS 9.1 is my battery life will be the same or should I wait until they will realese 9.2 ???
Thank you !

My battery life has been great on iOS 9 and as good as iOS 8. Your experience may differ.

I've had no issues with battery or performance on my 6 with iOS 9.1. If nothing else, 9.1 is more stable and reliable than 8.3.

No.ios 9 will slow your 6+ down like it did my 6 and the 6+ runs slower than the 6 in the first place

Don't do it. I'm on 9.1 on my 6S and it's so buggy I can't imagine what it would do on the 6.

What's so buggy for you?
1. Control center always lags when bringing it up.
2. Can't turn on flashlight using CC & flashlight icon stays on.
3. When unlocking the status bar disappears for a second. (This has been around since 9.0 and is still present in 9.1)
4. Location services continues to stay on after checking weather in NC, have to manually open the weather app then close it in app switcher to clear it.
5. Music plays through speaker even though headphones are plugged in.

I've never had a problem with iOS up until now and this is my first time setting up my phone as new. I've always restored from backup. I find myself having to reboot at least once every week.
