Question: iOS 10 painfully slow on iphone 6

Its been a few days since i installed iOS 10 on my 64GB iphone 6 and its just so slow to the point that its becoming useless! What the point of using a smart phone if the camera takes 3 seconds to launch and you have to tap a contact three times for the phone app to start dialing! I have tried turning off background app refresh and limiting graphical computations but no luck.

iPhone 6, iOS 10

That hasn't been my experience at all.


Try restoring iOS and your backup. If that doesn't improve things, restore iOS using iTunes and set it up as a new phone. There may be a problem (corruption) that is contained in your backup.

I had the same issue, then 10 0.2 came out but it did not do anything to performance. RAM management is horrible in my opinion. Everything has to reopen again. Three days ago I booted 9.3.5 back on my device. One week on iOS 10 was enough. It's really not a great update for devices without 3D touch.

9.3.5 performs like an iPhone should perform, that's why I am going to wait a while before upgrading again.

I too experienced this with my 6. I upgraded to 10.1 on Friday 16th and noticed lagginess immediately following completion of the update. Most apparent was the slowness of the camera to start when activated via swiping on the lock screen. Its now Sunday and I've just restarted the phone for the first time since that Friday installl and, fingers crossed, the lagginess appears to have gone away.


As other have suggested, the best option may be to backup via iTunes and then perform a complete fresh restore of that backup. At least that way you know that everything is restored in order and as cleanly as can be.

If you use iCloud to synch your contacts, these will be there when you login back to iCloud. You can download your apps and resynch your digital content as well.


If you restore from backup you might encounter the same problems you are having that caused you to restore in the first place.
