    iOS 9 Beta 6 / PB. 4
    My wish list.
    1. New dynamic wallpapers
    2. More still wallpapers.
    3. Better performance on iPhone 4S
    4. Control centre animation fix on iPhones
    5. Better notification centre animations on iPad
    6. Fix for all app delays on iPhone and iPad
    7. Fix for Apple Music app when sliding to the bottom when playing a certain track.
    8. Improvement of proactivity
    9. Smoother feel
    10. Fixing of overall animations of the system
    11. Performance of A5 / A6 and some of A7 devices to be improved.
    12. Better battery life on iPad 2,3,mini 1/2 and of course on iPhone 4S and later, battery on iPhone is now like officially terrible, I have an iPhone 5S with iOS pb3 and I barely get 3 hours of usage on a full charge, I'm now like 30 % and I've used it for just 2 hours. Really a very bad issue and could possibly ruin some peoples life, if u are outside without a charger, u are probably not going with iPhone, I device u go with the iPad instead.

    Edited ;)

    I thought we'd all come to the understanding that there'd be no 6th preview..?

    It doesn't matter, beta 6 or gold master ! What really matters is the improvements from time to time.

    So basically simply what you are looking for from the final released version. Maybe in one of the 9.x release, and even then probably only some of those things.

    I'd like to see a release that has a better stability when connecting to WiFi. No matter what I do it won't connect at my office. I also seem to have some trouble with it staying connected at my house as well.

    Isn't that supposed to be one of the new "features" of iOS9? If "Wi-fi Assist" is toggled on and the performance of the wi-fi is poor / slow, then it automatically switches to cellular.

    1: Don't care.
    2: Don't care.
    3: I do care about others but I have an iPhone 6 so can't comment.
    4: Yes, sometimes there is a slight animation delay. Also not very smooth.
    5: Don't have an iPad.
    6: Don't have an iPad.
    7: Apple Music needs quite a few fixes to be fair but I am enjoying it overall.
    8: Haven't really used this feature much. Should use it more.
    9: Yes, the biggest wish! Hopefully there are things still running in the background that Apple don't disable until the GM so I'm hoping it'll feel smoother and faster.
    10: Similar to above.
    11: This seems to be the biggest issue. Should software created in 2015 run great on a hardware chip that is four years old? Probably not. I'm sorry but you can't expect brand new software to run on old hardware, it's just not going to work.

    Oh, and there will be no beta 6, the GM is already being put on the new iPhones. iOS 9 GM should be available on the 9th after the event. I guess the list above is for the GM and not beta 6.

    TBH, most of those are of no interest. I'm not seeing #6. I don't think we're going to see another beta, so this is probably entirely academic.

    Would like to see an overhaul of Facetime. Make the default setting to make a voice call with an option to FaceTime.

    Keyboard shortcuts, err I mean Text Replacements to synchronise properly between devices and not just stop for days on end and randomly pick up long deleted shortcuts for a laugh. OK, to be fair, this has almost never worked properly for me. How hard can it be. Grr.

    I don't want to know if you care or not, personally this is my wish list and so many people share the same wish list for beta 6 or maybe the gold master, Personally as an apple user, I have an iPad mini which runs the A5 chip with iOS 9, it actually runs better the 4S which shares the same chip, if Apple thinks a5 runs like junk with iOS 8, they shouldn't have updated the junk with iOS 9. But if one a5 device exceeds the performance of another a5 device, this isn't fair and yes i think that 2015 software should run on a5 devices like magic, if apple wants to update those devices to iOS 9, it has the full responsibility of giving the best of what they have to those devices, if they don't think they could handle it, they would just stop updating the a5 devices after iOS 8. U still didn't get that it's an apple habit, they slow down devices to force u buying the latest idevice.

    Wi-fi assist doesn't seem to do anything. I turn on my music in the car every morning from my driveway which barely has signal and I have to turn off my wifi to get it to start playing.

    Being able to sync my entire music library without it all syncing and then swiftly disappearing off my iPhone.

    shame everyone can't compare an iPhone 5 using iOS 7.1.2 to an iphone 6 running iOS 9.0 before taking survey

    iOS 9 beta 5 still noticeably slower than iOS 8.4, and that is on iPhone 6.

    Not sure what exactly they have changed, the app open response time and home button response time increased dramatically. Almost thought I was using Android at one point. The idle CPU is also spiking between 15-25% most of the time. Not sure what background service they are doing.

    The animation and content offset glitch is also a problem.
    Overall, iOS 9 performance is pretty bad compare to all previous OS version.

    Looks like iOS 9 is a complete joke. Its meant to be faster and more stable. looks like that only happens on the iPad Air 2 and possibly the iPhone 6. Great work Apple.

    They may as well made it another feature packed release, because I thought having very few new features was a good compromise for a more stable and fast experience but since we apparently haven't even got that, and they're not bothering with a beta 6 by the looks, its a major let down.

    Perhaps we should wait until it's actually finished and released?

    Oh come on. iOS 9 is hopeless and this is apparently the last beta, then the GM isn't going to improve that much.

    Ah, yes, the good old "Apple is doomed" line of thought.

    No just the logical thinking line of thought. Terrible final beta = not much change for the GM. It's a simple fact.

    Except that the beta is far from terrible for many. And that the GM is usually well ahead of the last betas that it can be different enough. Facts about something that doesn't even exist yet (at least in the capacity of anyone being able say anything about it) simply can't be facts, and that's the only thing that would actually be an actual fact in all of that.
