    I installed iOS 9 public beta on my 5th generation iPod touch last night, and it is fantastic - it actually seems faster, even though it is a beta. However; when swiping to the left, i cannot reach the proactive area - it doesn't seem to exist, and neither does the news app. There is also no battery power saving mode. Now, I know this is a beta, so I should expect things like this, but it seems that I am the only one without these things. Is it just because is it an iPod Touch? Please help!

    Try this.

    People have said that it works. I have the same problem on the iPad 3. I don't have the iPad with me at work so i can't test.

    My understanding is that A5 devices aren't getting Proactive:

    iPhone 4s; iPod touch 5; iPad mini; iPad 2; I assume iPad 3rd gen.

    I imagine this explains why Apple chose to get rid of the iPad mini mid-cycle and why the iPod touch is being updated very soon - the A5 isn't getting the big iOS 9 features.
