    I love the new multitasking screen, no stupid annoying contact circles of people you've recently talked with at the top, hair nice stacked cards with an animation so nice and fluid I can't stop swiping left and right. The new font looks great and everything just seems faster :)

    It does clear up a lot of the annoyances from 7 and 8. The UI feels more polished (apart from the rounded corners of share sheets and pop up menus).

    I think they will change the rounder pop up sheets by release, one thing I did notice though that is now missing, in iOS 8 when in multitasking view you could touch the home screen area appearing in the background and it would jump to the home screen, cannot do this anymore.

    I don't think I like the extremely rounded corners of alerts and action sheets. They look really out of place for some reason.

    Yeah I think they over did it. They need to get somewhere in the middle of iOS 8 and iOS 9 roundness for a nice fit.

    The rounded corners look terrible so far. I like them the way they are in iOS 8.

    I really like the design of iOS 9...but my 6+ has been pretty damn laggy and buggy since running the beta. I think they have one more PB before the final release so I really hope they work it out.

    I'm a huge fan as well. I'm loving the (now functioning normally) news app, the suggestions seem pretty spot on, and the new beta is running great on my iPhone 6. After 3 days, the battery life is on par with 8.4 for me, which is awesome.

    My only complaint isn't with the OS necessarily, but the music app. I wish it wasn't such a battery hog. Before  music, I could listen to music and it would barely touch the battery. Now it's a killer.

    Not sure why many claim that the Music app is a battery drain. Every time I've used it, it barely uses any battery. Many times now doing a 45-50 minute train ride in my city and it doesn't even move 1% each time. (iPhone 6) Just last night at a friends place I used my phone for music for 5-6 hours and I don't think it even used 10%. (Connected to a Bluetooth speaker.)

    I wish mine was that way, and hoping this new beta fixes that issue for me. Maybe it's on my end (a setting, maybe?).

    Edit: Example is when I shower, I'll play music (tmi), and it's usually for around 15-20 minutes. I usually lose between 4-10% during that period, while only listening to my music.
