    When in 'select' mode in iOS 9, you could select one photo, then drag your finger to very quickly select a whole range of photos. Something I would do often to grab a bunch of photos and AirDrop them to my Mac or my wife's iPhone.

    This feature is now gone. :(

    EDIT: I figured it out. I'm dumb.

    Actually seems like this works for me as before, at least in Camera Roll, first by tapping the "Select" option and then doing the usual tap and drag.

    Report the issue to Apple.

    Edit: Good to hear it wasn't removed.

    Works for me. I selected one photo and I'm able to just drag my finger around and select more.

    *sigh*

    So, this was a DFUE (dumb ***** user error). I kept swiping up or down to drop into the next row not realizing that you have to always swipe side to side to use this feature.

    How did I not realize this before? :oops:
