    So I dowloaded iOS 9 today on my 6+ and I have to say, I'm getting some major Android vibes from the new look of the OS. Besides it resembling a lot like Android, here are some of my other gripes...

    - The keyboard switching from upper case to lower case... LOATHE it. Makes the keyboard look incredibly cheap and distracting. I loved all the upper case letters all the time. (Also, when will they offer an official dark keyboard?)

    - The new Music app (not necessarily iOS9, but truly hate the upgraded app)

    - How laggy iOS 9 is on a phone that is only 1 year old. Truly disappointed with the new "performance" that iOS 9 was supposed to bring. I feel that it only slows my phone down even more than before.

    - The removal of all the stock wallpapers they had before. (I know I can find them online, but really dislike how Apple got rid of a lot of them.)

    - The forcing on of apps that Apple is doing is becoming ridiculous and infuriating. (Find My Friends, Watch, Tips, etc.)

    I know that a lot of them are petty and cosmetic, but just wanted to vent about my frustration with Apple becoming an Android knockoff. If I wanted Android, I would switch to Android. Thanks for listening to me rant.

    You can disable the keyboard caps.

    I have virtually no lag on my 6 with 9, but YMMV.

    As far as the others, I fail to see how that makes them Android like at all...

    What new look? The slightly different font? That's really the only really noticeable thing that changed since iOS 8 (or 7).

    As far as the keyboard, how does the case of the letters relate to something being cheap or otherwise? In any case, you can change that in accessibility settings if you really want. You can also install other 3rd party keyboards that you can use.

    How can you disable caps lock?

    Keyboard options in accessibility settings.

    Tim Cook said in a very recent interview that some of the Apple apps can not in their current state be given an option to be removed. Because some are so deeply integrated into multiple areas of iOS. He did say some aren't so much and they could offer the ability in the future. iCloud Drive in iOS 9 is a sign perhaps of how they can build newer stock apps. But don't count on all of them being removable at any time.

    I understand that, but I think it's ridiculous that we're forced even more apps that will take up space. I find the Tips app to be completely useless for me and should be able to delete it.

    I think I should be able to delete majority of the stock apps, but I can't. I'm just saying what I would personally like as an avid Apple customer.

    Thanks, I didn't realize I could change it. I would think it would just be under the Keyboard app, but guess not haha.

    I think you're making these apps to be larger than they really are.

    I don't believe really any of those apps go over a couple of x0mb.

    That lower case to upper case switching was annoying. Glad you can turn it off.

    That said, my 6 Plus is more sluggish for sure. Why the hell does mail take 5 seconds now to be responsive? No real upgrades I see with 9 either really. Just not as responsive as ios8.

    It is strange that they put that keyboard setting in Accessibility. I feel like they use that as an area to dump certain "fine tuning" settings that they figure most users won't need (or hope that most users won't activate).
