    Tried it several days ago. I don't notice any difference. That seems to be general consensus on FB and Twitter among my friends.

    How exactly does refreshing the App Store content speed up my phone?

    There are some people on this forum who use their iPhones without those transparency and parallax effects, and according to them it helps iPhone become faster and smoother. But then there are others who say they don't help at all.

    I've used iPhone 4 iOS 7 without those effects, and I don't notice any difference in terms of stutter and lag.

    Clearing the cache for the App store shouldn't affect the general performance of the phone. Its benefits are minimal, its akin to closing the app from the app switcher. If your phone is slow, your phone is slow. You can do all these neato tricks and stuff but it all ends up being a chore or work. You can either upgrade or deal with it. PS, the 2 gigs in the iPhone 6S is life changing.

    Back to the topic at hand though, if someone reports that it doesn't work then:
    1: They have different opinions on what's fast and slow
    2: The app store wasn't what is slowing down their phone

    I've had iphone for 8 years now and am really unhappy with 9.2 on my 6. I have till August before upgrade is due. Wondering whether to stick with the 'S' model from now on. Copy & paste is also so hit & miss it used to be spot on.

    My first iPhone was a 6 so I don't have quite the experience as most other iPhone users do but I loved my 6 up until the end. Wasn't disappointed in its performance at all. Not sure why you would be upset about it but I promise you that any doubt about performance is put to bed with the 6S.

    As far as only sticking to S models. I don't think you should have to since every model brings some sort of update or improvement. From here on out after the 6S you'll have 2 gigs of ram to work with so go with a 7 or 6S if you wish.

    Thread is over two years old. . . . . .

    Do not need anything to speed up my X. Spam post?

    It is doing fine as it is.

    Turning reduce motion on feels odd and makes it feel less smooth in opinion.
