    The preview bar in Photos makes browsing photos convenient on iPhone.

    AssistiveTouch allows you to add two more shortcuts to the first menu. You can take screenshots and multitask faster.

    The two finger gesture doesn't work on iPhone.

    "On both the iPad and the iPhone, there's a new two finger gesture that controls the cursor. Placing two fingers anywhere on the screen (including over the keyboard) allows for super quick selecting, cutting, and pasting, making it much easier to control the cursor in iOS 9."

    I just discovered this as well. No two-finger cursor move on iPhone. Very sad about that since I do the majority of email writing on the iPhone 6 and not my iPad. Oh well... and I'm on iOS 9.1 beta so it's not there either.

    It's not possible on phones with screens smaller than the iPhone 6.

    I have the opposite problem, I have contact images on my iPhone 6 but only just a few sync with Facebook. The rest are just initials. I tried logging in and out of Facebook, force syncing the contacts, even requesting someone to add their phone number on Facebook but nothing helped. The Facebook profiles seem to show up fine on the contact page, they just won't sync with profile pictures.

    If you open a share sheet and then tap and hold one of the options you can now drag it to rearrange them right there. No need to scroll over and tap more....

    Also. Really long messages in messages are now truncated and you have to tap on them to open and see the rest of the message.

    I thought all of those things were already in iOS 8.

    Not sure about hidden feature, but the ability to go to multitasking view (same as double pressing home button) from a 3D Touch swipe in left to right from the left side of the screen looks handy, and one part of 3D Touch. Being able to both move cursor around for text selection, and use 3D Touch (a bit more pressure) to select text looks pretty useful too. Sure improves on the cut copy paste of old.
