    All this time I was selecting photos one by one, and all I had to do was drag my finger across to select all. I did NOT know that.

    that was new with ios 9.

    Did you also know you can tap the top of the screen to get back to the top of the photos app quickly? (similar to top tap in browser). that i think has been around forever but not everyone knows about.

    The tap to go to top is actually there in many places throughout iOS.

    Me neither, nice.

    What I also discovered the other day was when you keep pressed on the refresh button in safari it gives the option to load the desktop site and reload without content blocker (when one is installed I guess)

    It would be nice if they had the tapping to scroll down as well

    That's a great one! Anyone know how long that's been around?

    Whoa I had no idea you could do this either! I take a ton of photos (and therefore delete a ton of photos) and this makes things so much easier!

    There is also a select all option in photo stream, i believe this is fairly new also.

    Its a neat little trick and comes in useful a lot!

    Apple hasn't really highlighted this feature for the average user in any publicity, so most people discover it by chance.
