iPhone 4s iOS 9.2 Performance

Now that the smoke from the iOS 9.2 release is settling, we're starting to get a feel for the iOS 9.2 update's performance on Apple's elder statesman. And what we've found is a mixed bag of impressions from iPhone 4s users

Those coming from older versions of iOS 9 will likely want to make the move to iOS 9.2 for the bug fixes, security updates and the new features. If the update doesn't perform to your liking, you can drop back down to iOS 9.1. 

Those of you coming from iOS 8 have a much harder decision to make. There is no going back to iOS 8. Once you upgrade to iOS 9.2, you're stuck with iOS 9 forever. So, you might want to wait for additional feedback to arrive before making a decision. 

Those of you moving from iOS 7 will likely notice a huge difference in performance according to iPhone 4s users and you might be better off staying put until you upgrade to a new phone.
