Do I upgrade to iOS 10?

My worries are that it will burn my battery up or bog my phone down.
I have a 64gb iPhone 6 that is perfectly fine.
I remember upgrading my iPad mini from iOS 8 to9 and it was so fast butthe second i upgraded it might as well of been a paper weight because of this problem.

You're fine.

I remember iOS 7 killed my 4s, but my iPhone 6 is still running great on iOS 10

Never be an early adopter. Keep that in mind.

Have you tried on several games?

I just fully read this review and it compares iOS 10 on different models on aspects like battery drain, speed, etc and it conclude in that the update is worth it and that overall is really nice even on iPhone 5 and 5c

I get no small amount of gruff about this, but I too don't upgrade unless I need to. My IpT5 is still on ios7, and Ipad Air is still on ios8.3

I kept iOS 8.4 until they fixed MHFU. Now on 9.something and not intending to update again until there's a must-have game that requires 10. Mainly staying on 9 because I'd miss Game Center.
