    Hello all,

    As I await the arrival of my new 6s + I had a random thought... will the watch run faster now that it has more RAM and a faster processor over on the phone end?
    Has anyone noticed this? What type of improvement?

    Mine feels faster. Though, everything changed over the past couple weeks, so I do not know if it was the phone, iOS 9, or Watch OS 2. Regardless, things feel a little snappier on the Watch.

    Wouldn't Bluetooth be a limiting factor even if the new iPhone is 100X faster?

    Hence why native Watch apps are the way to go.

    You would assume minor speed improvement with the processing power of the new phone but limited because of the Bluetooth path to the watch.

    If BT bandwidth is on the order of of 2 Mbs, it is probably not a watch performance bottleneck factor. I do not know what BT latency is, but my hunch is that plays no role in perceived performance either.

    Good point about so much being new that we couldn't really tell which did it... I didn't think of that. Thank you for the feedback!
