Prior to the iOS 9 announcement, I heard a rumor of away message capability in iOS 9. Remember how these were possible with the old AIM software, released in the late 1990s? This is something I'd love to see integrated into iOS 9 for many reasons, especially during those times when I cannot actually text someone back (namely during work or while driving). I haven't heard anything one way or another about away messages, so I'm hoping someone who has the beta can shed some light on this. If there is no Apple solution, is it now permissible for third party developers to create such a program? I know it currently cannot be done on an iPhone with an unaltered copy of iOS 8 (or earlier) and feel this is a feature which should exist, if for anything, to let others know not to bother iPhone users while driving.
