I've been using the iPhone 6s iOS 9.1 update for two weeks now. The iPhone 6s is my daily driver (I also use it for work) so it's important that Apple's software performs at a high level on my device. So far, it hasn't let me down.

Battery life is still excellent. I am able to get a full day (8AM-8PM) of use out of the phone before hooking it on a charger. I usually use a mixture of Wi-Fi and LTE throughout the day.

Wi-Fi, LTE and Bluetooth have all been stable with iOS 9.1 on board. My apps have, for the most part, been doing fine though I've noticed a few more crashes from The Weather Channel app. It just got a major design overhaul so I'm expecting performance to improve after it gets another update. 

The iPhone 6s iOS 9.1 update is also fast, which, doesn't come as a surprise. This phone has been out for a few weeks and it uses top of the line hardware. iOS 9.1 should be fast. 

The new emojis and the bug fixes make the iOS 9.1 update an update worth installing for most people. If you're feeling leery, seek out additional feedback.
