    Continuing the tradition from previous betas....

    Post any bugs, new features, or changes in iOS 9 beta 1 that you notice compared to iOS 8.3 or 8.4 betas. This is a wikipost so anyone can edit in their findings.

    As always, be sure to report any and all bugs to (a developer account is not required to do this)

    Build #: 13A4254v

    Downloading apps is buggy on iPhone 6
    - Long bootup times on iPhone 6/iPhone 6 Plus/iPad Air 2 (probably all devices)
    - "Updated June X, 2015" (App Store) is aligned with changelog in landscape, but seemingly random placement in portrait
    - Searching in settings, following the link, going back, deleting the search term, following a setting and then going back to the main settings screen defaults back to last searched term
    - Searching for Apps in Spotlight miss to show the folder
    - No sound in phone calls on iPhone 6 Plus when call is not initiated via Bluetooth HFP
    - Pressing "Use side switch to:" in settings gives footer text which reads ROTATE-FOOTER instead of the copy text (@JWalker1995 )
    - Missed "delete all" in mail trash
    - iCloud backup shows as 0kb and is inaccessible to download. (Must restore in iOS 8 to fix.)
    - Muffled voice during calls on iPhone 5 (A1428) AT&T Carrier (Siri and Voice Memos works fine)
    - Music Playlist duplicates when you sync with iTunes
    - Music playback may randomly fail, showing "Fail to load asset".
    - Music playback will fail immediately or shortly after first song when option to sync library for search by artist/song/album with Honda vehicle sound system is enabled, perhaps other similar scenarios. Disabling voice search in Honda Audio menu resolves this.

    I wonder if they added an api for voice to text in third party keyboards... Attachments in email would also be nice.

    I hope they fixed some of the 50 bugs in iOS 8. Especially for the 6 and 6+, the whole OS feels sluggish sometimes/

    So the shift key hasn't changed? It's just easier as the letters can be upper and lowercase now?

    How are dynamic wallpapers? Are there new ones? Do they still constantly reload?

    Really interested to see whether some apps work. I haven't had the software update even register on my iPhone yet but I'm in the UK so they may do a slower rollout to balance the servers?

    It's a beta. There's no OTA from 8.3 or 8.4. You have to download the file on a computer.

    iOS 9 beta 1 will not show up as a software update. You have to get it from the developer portal and use iTunes to update

    Make sure anyone testing WhatsApp updates the app. There's a new update released today.
