iOS 5.1 feels much "snappier"

Recommended Posts

I just upgraded my iPhone 4 to 5.1. It feels much snappier. Has anyone else noticed this?

Did you do an upgrade or did you do a restore and then upgrade? I like to do the latter, takes longer but really does make the phone feel quicker.

I just did an upgrade.

Placebo.

I done an OTA upgrade on 2 iPhone 4S' and a First Gen iPad, they all feel better.

Its definitely faster on my iphone 4s. It also fixed this problem i had loading the camera from the lock screen. It would not fully load up and you would have to either unlock the phone then go into camera or move the video switch to get the camera app to fully load from unlock.

with 5.1 installed the camera INSTANTLY loads from locked state for me now. Some apps are also loading faster for me.

Less errors on the Console logs too. Location Services isn't launching every 10 seconds on my iPhone 4S anymore. Battery life doesn't seam all that improved though....

Can't say it feels any different on my 4S, but honestly, I hadn't had a single issue beforehand anyway.

Could well be a placebo effect but 5.1 does feel like is has some more zing about it. Here's hoping the battery life is fixed.

Feels faster on my 4S.

I think the reason is because iOS5 might have been rushed a bit (but shhhh, no one can know that)

Seems to feel a little faster on my 4S. Can't comment on battery life yet because I haven't really been using it for long enough.

Not if you're the unfortunate owner of an iPhone 3G, apparently. :p

My jailbroken iPhone 4 is a lot snappier and faster than stock iOS 5.0.1

How about battery life after you upgraded to 5.1? getting better?

I believe it is snappier on my 3GS.

Can?t say much about the battery though. It seems to drain quickly. More info coming ?

Seems to be a bit faster, yeah.

Hopefully it'll be better with battery as well. At the end of the day, I'll know.

Feels slower on my gf's iPhone 4S than mine under 5.01... oh wait, that's because my phone is jailbroken, with a LOT of useless "daemons" removed, and a lot of crap disabled (Siri, Spotlight, etc.)... ;)

Any other small tweaks/features that Apple slip in on iOS 5.1?

I wish I could experience this snappiness - unfortunately I still cannot download iOS 5.1 either through iTunes, OTA or direct download! :(

Lost 3% battery in 9 hours on standby, that isnt to bad at all considering i was losing around 20% on 5.0.1.
