In January, Apple confirmed an iOS 9.3 update for the iPhone 6. The iOS 9.3 update brought new features and enhancements to the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. It also brought problems, problems that have required Apple to roll out numerous bug fix updates.

A few weeks ago, after a lengthy stint in beta, Apple rolled out a bug fix update dubbed iOS 9.3.3. iOS 9.3.3 was out for a mere two weeks before the company rolled out another version called iOS 9.3.4.

iOS 9.3.4 is no longer king. In August, ahead of the iOS 10 release, Apple rolled out yet another iOS 9 update called iOS 9.3.5. And it’s an big one.

iPhone 6 iOS 9.3.5 Update: Impressions & Performance

We've been using the iPhone 6 iOS 9.3.5 update for two weeks now and here are our first impressions of its performance. 

Again, if you're coming from iOS 9.3.4, iOS 9.3.5 is a small update and shouldn't take you more than a few minutes to download and install. It took us about five minutes from start to finish. 

If you're coming from something older like iOS 9.3.2, it'll take you a little bit longer to install so make sure you block out 15 minutes to get it done. 

Battery life is holding up with the new update on board. We haven't run into any weird drain though we have seen complaints about iOS 9.3.5 battery life so you'll want to be careful if you decide to make the move.

We haven't noticed any problem with connectivity. We've tested the iPhone 6's iOS 9.3.5 update with several routers, ISPs and Bluetooth devices and everything appears to be stable. 

The iPhone 6 is still extremely fast with the iOS 9.3.5 update on board. We haven't noticed any abnormal lag or stuttering. The keyboard and Control Center, two problem areas in the past, aren't laggy. 

For the most part, we're having an excellent experience on iOS 9.3.5 and recommend it for most iPhone 6 users due to the nature of the security fixes on board. 

If you're still feeling a bit leery, we recommend seeking out a second or third opinion, especially if you're coming from an older version of iOS.
