I'm having a problem that the phone is getting confused when changing orientations it gets stuck and sometimes also the homescreen will be right and my keyboard will be sideways still

That's what I always did with my other iPhones but this is my first plus and I love the option for the landscape home screen and looking at pics

It should work better than it does. And the new stupid Touch ID is too sensitive now

Have you tried adjusting the sensitivity? I don't find 3D Touch sensitive at all.
I don't think you can adjust the Touch ID sensitivity. I just had to adjust to start using the lock button or NC for notifications since I was missing them on my lock screen.

Someone elsewhere on the Internet said that calibrating the compass worked for them. I realize that your iPhone is a 6s Plus and the suggestion I'm about to share with you was for the 6 Plus, but you never know…

I only have mine enabled for app and iTunes Store, and Apple Pay most of the time. The only time it's a PITA, is when I wake and look for the weather on the lock screen. I've adapted to it.

I did it once, dude. You make a living at it and I end up fixing a lot of them.
Maybe you are doing it using some kind of stealth mode, because I don't remember the last time I saw "Last edited: xx minutes ago by a Moderator" on one of my posts.

What you have fixed for me is a few of my own thread titles that I remember asking you to fix.

But whatever, I'm not keeping a scorecard, so maybe you are right. Not a big deal for me if I'm wrong.

I always use stealth mode. :)

You lurker, you!

Well, thank you for silently keeping an eye on our my posts (and others' too, I'm sure) and keeping our forum nice and tidy.

It seems a little better. But the iOS 9 on this phone is a little draggy compared to my 6 and this being a new device

Have you checked your battery usage to see if any apps have excessive background activity going on… like Facebook, for example? This coule be hogging resources.

Also, some people find that the phone appears to run faster if Reduce Motion is turned on. YMMV.

Reduce motion is on. There is some Facebook background use but it doesn't seem like the percentage of that should cause an issue
