    Whenever I restart my iPhone 6s Plus (home button and sleep/wake button) or power off/power on, the animation going from the lock screen to the home screen (where apps fly in) after entering my password is very choppy. Only happens after a restart; normally the unlock animation is smooth. Does anyone else experience this? Any way to resolve other than turning on "Reduce Motion" in Settings?

    Yes, this is normal and happens after a reboot, and even sometimes randomly while in use. Not that big of a problem and has always happened, especially now in iOS 9.

    Reducing Motion will help because it removes the animation entirely.

    Why are you restarting your phone and how often?, better yet why are you doing a force restart (power + home) instead of a power down, power up normal restart?

    I don't force restart often but why does doing that vs. power down/up matter?

    You still didn't explain why you restart your phone and how often.

    Force restart is like unplugging your computer instead of shutting it down properly. It can lead to data loss if something happens to be writing to the disk (flash) at that time.

    It is much safer to simply turn the phone off and back on.

    Another thing you can do if your phone is performing poorly is hold the power button so the "slide to power off" screen comes up, then just hold the home button until you return to the home screen. This will kill all apps in the background and free up memory.

    Every once and a while when phone is running slowly or is not responsive at all.

    Good to know, thanks. If a force restart results in data corruption, what would that look like and what could be done to resolve it?

    The
    Only hard reset your phone if your phone is completely unresponsive. Otherwise, sticking to a normal restart should work just fine.

    I wouldn't worry about "what ifs" until the time comes. It's not likely to happen.

    Good practice. I was just asking because some people just routinely restart their phones for no real reason.

    I had a replacement IP6s that had this issue, recorded it and Apple replaced it. This only happened if I used a Live Photo Wallpaper.

    iOS 9.3.1 sometimes has a slight stutter, nothing major like this one.
