    Not sure if anyone notices this yet, there is a new iBook extension in the action button.
    It makes a PDF of the website you're on, very cool!

    This is cool! So are you saying that on iOS, Safari has an extension to send a website to iBooks as a PDF? If so, that's awesome. Safari on OS X has had that for a while, and I've often wished iOS had that too. Can it only send the PDF to iBooks, or can you choose a different location (I.e. iCloud Drive or Dropbox?)

    Ya it makes a PDF of the page you are on and opens it in iBooks. So far I've only seen it in safari, but may be accessible in other apps too.

    So excited for native PDF creation! Can you post screen shots of this? Have you found it to work in other apps like Photos? My last wish is to finally get share extensions in Mail to create PDFs of messages.

    Yep, sure does. Even works when you select multiple images.

    A little off topic, but does iBooks still not have any sort of iCloud sync of pdfs in ios9?

    PDF converter by readdle already does this and it seems to be better, not forcing you to open it on ibooks, which sadly is kind of a black hole, from which you can't move it back somewhere else, except by email...
