I guess nagging them works :) We need to spam them to add an ability to cross-fade music, like we can on Mac/iTunes.

Show Favorites Bar is new under beta 2, I think. Honestly didn't notice it there in beta 1 when I added my content blocker.

Update feels very snappy.

What I noticed: 3rd party keyboards are still popping up, not swiping up from the bottom like the original keyboard (was fixed in iOS 9 - PB 5, came back in iOS 9 - GM and newer).

Yes this was very frustrating for me personally. Like very.

Settings.app still opens scrolled down to airplane mode. Why is it a problem to solve it? :mad:
maybe cause thats like the most harmless bug in a long time if not ever, theyre probably busy trying to satisify the yearly whiners about speed/battery etc. tons of other things can take priority over this, useless..bug

How can this happen for at least four releases that came afterwards..?!
I'm not sure about 4 releases (unless you are talking about beta updates), but it can easily happen when there are more important issues and bugs to deal with, as there usually are with a x.0 update and a few following updates.

Not sure if feature or issue ( or if with just beta 1) but I was able to do the OTA update with 43% battery remaining versus the normal 50%. I also had power saver on.

They have been busy fixing the battery display bug that was skipping certain percentages that people were all to H*** over. :) (the other bug that doesn't really matter that much)

I'm noticing a new issue with the spinning "wheel" indicator constantly on when I'm on the home screen. All apps closed and tried a reboot. (9.1 Beta 2 on 6 Plus)
