    When I swipe right to bring up the Search page on my iPad Air 1 I only ever see 3 apps suggested - the last 3 apps used (without typing in a search). I'll try to post a pic shortly. But when I swipe across on my iPad mini 4 I see 6 apps suggested (the last 6 apps used) under the search bar. Why is this?

    Also when I compare the width on the search page / bar on the iPad Air 2 (which also shows 6 apps) with my iPad Air 1 the iPad Air 2 it is wider.

    Have apple restricted some thing like this iOS things on older devices? I know they've limited some new features like using 2 apps at the same time but I didn't think this would be - so I'm wondering whether something has glitched when I upgraded to iOS 9?

    Hmmm.. Anyone else? Looks like I'll have to do a clean install and lose a large part of a week of my life slowly putting everything back on :confused:

    All the iPads have iOS 9.1 so there should be no difference.

    Oh sorry, I misunderstood, anyways, it maybe just a bug present on iPad Air. Maybe it's already fixed on iOS 9.2. Have u compared it to another iPad Air 1 running the same iOS ??

    Have you tried a reset by turning the iPad Off and On.

    Or a Reset by holding the power button and home button together until the  logo appears.

    Installed 9.2 and now I have 5 apps in portrait and 7 apps suggested in landscape and an almost full width window when in landscape - looks like it's fixed... :D Saved me a fresh install (hopefully).
