    As per the title. I'm on 8.4.1, on a 5S, and although not perfect it is running alright.

    I'm looking for people that have made the jump and found that iOS9 is no better, the same as 8.4.1... Or, is it a better experience and worthy of jumping in day one?

    Your thoughts...

    On the iPhone, I'm holding out. On the iPad, the multitasking features alone are worth the hit in performance.

    Think I am going to hold out. My partner has taken the plunge on a 6+ and has experienced issues with Task Manager dropping frames, the App Store not allowing updates and a few issues removing recents in Messages. Game changers, nope, but annoying glitches I can do without atm.

    On the iPhone the content blocking feature alone makes the upgrade worthwhile. I'm using Peace and I've noticed significant improving in browsing speed and lower data usage.

    In the past, I've always waited and read these forums religiously before taking the plunge. This time I decided to take the plunge while Apple is still signing 8.4.1 so I could downgrade after upgrading and judging for myself. So far, so good on both 6 Plus and iPad Air 2. Will check on my daughters' 4s and 5 before i update the wife's 4s...

    Backup your device, install ios 9, play for 1-2 days. If you still want 8.4.1, you can go back as long Apple signs the old version.

    But you'll see: most of the negativity here is groundless.

    Nah, don't think it is. I've just restored back to 8.4.1 on the iPhone 6 and even while indexing\restoring back up from the cloud it runs better that iOS 9 after a good day or two.

    iPhone 4s here. I'm waiting for someone else with same hardware to try the update and report.
