    It's freaking awesome! Feels like iOS 7 right now and i know it will reach iOS 6 level with GM. And imagine how it will feel when Apple polishes the whole iOS around March.
    Apple just gave another life to my 4s. Thanks!!

    No proactive search can be found. Maybe limited to some countries.
    No drawing feature available in Notes.app .
    There are few more. Can't recall them.

    Keep in mind it's not really iOS 9 just yet, it's only the first developer beta of iOS 9.

    speedwise its the same as ios 8.4 right now. but a little more buggier sometimes closed apps would appear to closed but still be running.

    proactive spotlight does not work for me , maybe its not for 4s or a region thing.

    i get this weird bug where instead of carrier name i get "iPhone" written. kinda annoying.

    Well thats a good sign at least if its about the same as 8.4.. I was getting a bit worried given some other people's experiences..

    Weird about the proactive thing… Also I wonder why the drawing wouldn't work?…

    Can you post a video (of course only if you have time and the means to) of how it runs?

    On my 4S it works terrible.
    It doesn't show carrier name and it's very very laggy

    Could any of you please share a screenshot of the Music 'Now Playing' tab on the iPhone 4s running iOS 9? I've been wondering if it looks as ugly as in iOS 8.4

    to show carrier name turn on cellular data (3g+data roamning) and hard reset the iphone by pressing power and home button until it reboots. fixes it for me

    For those newly upgraded 4s, hold off your assessment until about a day into your use of iOS 9. Seems like the phone is compiling stuff in the background and downloads some data for a little while. That may be the culprit for the initial slowness.

    If any brave soul happens to install this on a 8Gb iPhone 4S, please mention how much free space you have. If you have apps installed, please mention how many or they are few, which ones. Thanks :)

    That's not a bug, that's a magical new feature we've been asking for years, nobody cares about the carrier name :p

    Anybody know how it does on iPod Touch? And does it FINALLY have the battery percentage yet?

    I don't have iOS 9 on my 5th gen iPod touch, but I can tell you that it'll never have battery percentage. The iPod touch doesn't have the sensors for battery percentage. That's why if you turn it off for a while, your battery might jump up since it's really just an estimate.

    It’s extremely slow on the iPad mini 1, I seriously doubt that it will be nearly as fast as iOS7 or 6 were on its final release.

    I've now seen videos on youtube where the mini 1 looks as fast or faster than iOS 8 which makes me very confused.

    Are you running a clean install?
