    After the low power mode feature

    Would you like to see boost performance mode? (Maybe only while the device is plugged in?)

    Personally, I don't think Apple will add this option.

    I think the device already has an insane amount of performance. It has 80% the power of the new Macbook

    It might solve lag and sluggish problems on the older devices...

    I think this would be very useful with the iPad Pro.

    You're right. I hadn't thought of that. The 4S could really benefit from it.

    I think a high performance mode might be cool. There could be a disclaimer that by enabling High Performance will decrease battery life or something to that effect.

    I believe the reason iOS 9 does better with battery is because they throttle the GPU and CPU to make the phone consume less power, but in doing so, they've kind of crippled the smoothness that the iPhone is usually known for.

    There are times when you need your device to "just do it and fast" and battery life is not a critical consideration.

    I feel like some uneducated people will see the warning about battery life, ignore it, leave it on and then complain about bad battery life.

    I was just hoping for a "8.4.1 performance" toggle in iOS 9 next to LPM.

    Speaking of iOS 6.... Walmart still has an iPad mini 1 on display with iOS 6 on it and daaaaaaaaaammn it flies!!! It's not even funny. The apps open immediately after the animation is complete. There's absolutely no delays and the animations are perfect 60fps ALWAYS. You kind of forget about that experience after using iOS 7,8 and 9 for so long. You sort of just get used to it.

    I will say this though... iOS 6 is UGLY.

    I used to think Turbo meant slow for a little while as a kid. That's cos when I pressed the turbo button on the PC everything went slow. Turns out that's cos Turbo was usually always on...

    This is never going to happen, due to not only battery life limitations, but also thermal limitations.
