iPhone 6s iOS 9.3.1 Review in Progress

After spending several days using the iOS 9.3.1 software on the iPhone 6s Plus, this is an overview of the performance. This comes after using iOS 9.3 for over a week and testing the iOS 9.3.1 software over the weekend. 

Up until the release I tested the iOS 9.3 beta on the iPhone 6s Plus, so I've been using the new features and near final software for longer than most. While I last used iOS 9.2.1 on the iPhone 6s Plus a while ago I can still share comparisons in performance and overall speed. 

The iPhone 6s Plus iOS 9.3.1 performance is just as solid as it was on iOS 9.2.1, and a little better than iOS 9.3. The phone is fast, apps work as expected and I have not had crashes or other errors in the last beta or in the final release that is avialable to everyone.

In short, the iOS 9.3.1 update did not impact the speed of the iPhone 6s Plus in any way. I've been testing the iPhone 6s Plus iOS 9.3.1 battery life over the weekend and it appears a little better than on iOS 9.3. The Bluetooth, WiFi and LTE connectivity are all working as expected. 

Installing the iPhone 6s Plus iOS 9.3.1 update was relatively quick, and I did not run into any activation problems. Apps are all working as expected on iOS 9.3.1, with no major issues to report. 

After using the beta and the final version of the iPhone 6s Plus iOS 9.3.1 software, this is an update the users can install on this phone without waiting or worrying about the performance. 

If you are sill on the fence, keep reading for reasons to install and some reasons you may want to wait to install iOS 9.3.1 on your iPhone 6s Plus.

    Be careful loading it crashed your cell phone and you carrier (Verizon) says you just need to buy a new phone. Verizon will not fix it so prepared.

    What a load of waffle. A million words where 100 would have sufficed.

    You have bad editorial skill sets. Can you be concise? That was 10 pages of useless crud when you know darn well you could have written the article in just a few sentences…3 paragraphs at most

    No thanks, I’m going to wait before upgrading. There was a time not long ago I was ridiculed for having an iPhone 4S with iOS 6 to upgrade to 8 and as a result needing to get a new phone, my 6 Plus, because my beloved 4S became too slow. I was happy with my 4S on iOS 6. Shame on me.

    You were the same people who said you saw no problems upgrading to 9.3 and said that there was no substantial complaint traffic in the Apple support community forums. Lord and behold what happens after I upgraded to 9.3 after having no problems with 9.2.1? I can’t open any links in Mail and Safari!! Shame on you GottabeMobile!

    I downgraded back to 9.2.1 but not before I had to upgrade my Mac from OSX 10.6.8 Snow Leopard to El Capitan to downgrade my phone, which slowed my 5 year old Mac to molasses. I lost apps, treasured wifi passwords and photos, and other crap that I should have known better. I should have stuck to this rule of thumb:

    In the world of Apple unless you change the hardware frequently, when it comes to the software stick to what you know until you have a DEFINITIVE NEED to upgrade the software. Wait until before the the next upgrade.

    You avoid bugs and ineffective fixes and prevent your current platform from being destabilized.
