    FWIW I updated my iPad Pro 2nd Gen to iPad OS 15.5 which I have seen notable performance increase as well as improvements in connectivity. Also worth mentioning that it doesn’t heat up like it did after the previous 2 updates (iPad OS 15.4 and 15.4.1). Meanwhile I have not seen much change on my other devices including iPhone 12 Pro Max and iPad Pro Gen 4. I have not updated my Apple TVs yet.

    I am not ready for 15.5 because 15.4.1 did not correct the battery drain problem. I have 2 iPhon 11s and 4 iPads which still have battery drain problems. I would like to reinstall 15.4.1.

      The battery on my iPhone 11 is absolute rubbish since iOS 15. Feels intentional whether it is or not because it used to be stellar.

      I have no interest in getting a new iPhone 13 the LED screens flicker and give me a headache.
