Anyone else experiencing this? The load time, for anything, seems unusually slow since updating to IOS 6.

I'm also experiencing a very slow iPhone 4. Even the keyboard is slow, where I have to wait for it to catch up. When tapping on a "button" that changes screens, it's very slow.. To the point where I'm waiting several seconds for the app to respond to my tap. At first, I thought it was only a Facebook app problem, but it's not.

I tried closing all apps, then doing the reset where you hold both the top button and main button at the same time for several seconds. That did not help. I have about 1.5GB available space.

I'm not sure exactly when this slowness started, but I'm guessing after a recent Facebook and/or iOS update. I'm at iOS 6.1.2 currently.

I've asked other iPhone owners and 4 out of 5 have noticed the same issue.

I'd appreciate any advice on how to remedy this situation. Thanks.

I'd try the usual restore as new. Other than that jailbreak and install fakeclockup :D

1. Uninstall and reinstall Facebook.
2. Settings > General > Reset > Reset All Settings
3. When it happens on Safari, close all of the open tabs except the current one.
4. When it happens on Facebook, force quit Facebook and reopen it.
5. Reboot once daily.
