    I just drop stuff I don't use into a "Rarely Used" folder.

    Not able to rotate between portrait and landscape while in notification centre anymore on the 6+! Seems like a good decision, as this was one of the only areas where the 6+ would lag a bit.. Other than that, seems smoother overall!

    Woah, Safari is SO snappy now. Watch out!

    EDIT: Also my phone seems to have doubled battery life? Still, I hope they iron those bugs out in iOS 9 because I barely get through a day on a charge FaceTimeing over 3G in my remote rural cabin. Get your shizz together Apple.

    Wow, just a quick check but they seem to have fixed something that has been driving me up the wall since 7.x

    Now, when I am using the music app, and turn it landscape, it doesn't change to some random album song list.

    Of course it doesn't do anything (it should show current artwork in landscape like the iPad) but I'll take nothing over "makes no sense" any day.

    Not here. My 6 is still switching to my entire music collection album art view. Are you on a 6+?

    Heard from multiple folks in the Apple Discussion forums that this is NOT fixed in 8.2.

    Anyone noticed any improvement with text selection and use of cut/copy/paste in Safari?

    As far as I can tell, for me at least, it's still quite inconsistent as it was before (as of iOS 8.0), but perhaps other have had other experience with it so far in iOS 8.2.

    But I think it's fixed in iOS 8.3. Perhaps someone can confirm that for me.

    Yeah sorta weird acting. Only selects a single word then in some paragraphs does nothing at all. Can use the bullets to drag and select more but sorta annoying to have to do that. Maybe next time.

    Still can't clear iCloud Tabs in Safari.

    Probably not iOS 8.2 related, but I asked Siri when the Apple Watch comes out. He (I use the male voice) gave me all the relevant dates for pre-order and release dates.

    3rd Party Keyboard in Spotlight & Messages

    Hope I'm not speaking too soon, but it seems that the 3rd party keyboards (at least SwiftKey) are appearing every time that Spotlight or Messages is brought up. Prior to this, I would constantly have to force quit the app, or start up another app that does allow for the keyboard to come up.

    So happy about this so far, so I hope I'm not wrong. It's a little sluggish on Spotlight still, and you can't write a review in the App Store but at least it appears where I was using it most.

    This option wasn't available in 8.1.3, however it's turned on by default in 8.2

    Should have been more clear: after clicking motion and data nothing showed... Now it does

    Did they fix the battery percentage drops from 61 to 59%, 31 to 29%, and 16 to 14%? And can you still see the statusbar elements when viewing/zooming a picture message inside the messages app? Or are they STILL there? :)

    Looks like the greyscale Spotlight graphical glitch has finally been addressed. I think this is the first version that fixed that but I may be wrong.

    Need to keep an eye on those percentages to see if they are fixed.

    As for the status bar still being there when viewing/zooming a picture from the Messages app, it looks like that's been addressed.


    Did that one only appear after enabling/disabling some accessibility settings (like grayscale and/or reduce transparency)?

    Yes, that bug happened upon turning greyscale on and then pulling down the spotlight menu on 8.1.3. Seems to be fixed now. And I can also confirm the messages photo viewing / zooming status bar issue has FINALLY been addressed!! :)

    Status bar elements appear to be gone. At least on my iPhone 6.

    I'm not sure if it's because I restored my phone from an iCloud backup to get to 8.2, but now right now, my battery usage is showing me "Battery usage in the last 2 hours."
