    I know it's a bit early but can someone with A7 devices share their opinion regarding the performance, UI smoothness, keyboards. For example, does Control Center still hangs in the middle of the animation when dragging it up really quick? Or are A7 ipads better? Thanks in advance!

    I just want to allow 3rd party keyboards on the lockscreen, you wouldn't think it would be too much to ask!

    I don't think this is a bug, so much as a conscious security decision on Apple's part. You're essentially allowing a third-party process to run outside of the system's security lockout and display a full custom user interface. There is no precedent for allowing this as far as I know, and there are cases where it could be a problem. For instance, SwiftKey's autocomplete is very aggressive and with a few letters you can reveal a wealth of personal information about what the user typically types, including passwords in some cases. For instance, my Amazon.com password ended up in SwiftKey because Amazon's password field did not properly identify itself as a secure password field.

    Call me crazy, but I'm pretty sure this is a feature, not a bug.

    Yes. That's by design.

    I know it's not a bug, and I know why they do it, however there is precedent now that they allow notification center widgets on the lockscreen. Obviously it should be a toggle, but it wouldn't be the end of the world if under the Full Access toggle was a toggle for lock screen. No one other than me touches my phone and even if they did I'm not concerned about that sort of thing. I just want to have a keyboard on the lock screen again.

    I don't want 3rd party keyboards being used on sensitive information.

    Is the bug fixed where the status bar shows while viewing attachments in Messages? Such as...

    I'd rather people using the beta reported back info that people will find useful.

    I'm genuinely intrigued to see if this offers any further performance gains over iOS 8.1.3 in terms of UI fluidity and smoothness on A7 devices.
