    Do you think iOS 9 will bring a lightweight OS (faster, snappier etc...)

    Cast your vote!

    Things will hopefully be cleaned up and stabilized but I don't think they trim much down UI wise.

    More features, more functionality, more bugs, etc....
    Standard iOS upgrades.

    I would like to see the Calendar app moved to the quick access menu, in place of the camera app.

    Yeah I am expecting this update to be a major speed increase and fix most of the issues people have started having since iOS 8 dropped. iOS 8 was a horrible upgrade in terms of bugs and IMO it left the testing facility too soon.

    iOS 7 when it came out didn't really seem any better, and actually worse in many instances for quite a few people. That's not to say that iOS 8 was great when it came out, and certainly also needed more polishing.

    I think 7 was more stable when it came out then iOS 8 was. 8 was just a terrible upgrade IMO and I cannot wait for iOS 9.

    They'll introduce faster (hopefully new) animations on top of actual performance enhancements and the OS will appear faster and 'lighter'. Imagine they unbundle some apps, or even better, allow you to uninstall some system apps.

    I voted no. You would have to hand me a picture of Tim Cook holding a hand written confirmation to get me to believe this is true.

    No. I think it will be the same size, but more efficient in terms of performance.

    Edit: Misread. Oh well. It might not be, but we expect 2.0 Gb of RAM, so that might make it appear faster.

    Well. Before wwdc, no one I bet can post such official statement proof. Anything in here is likely rumour and hope. Most members understand it by default.

    If iOS 9 is not going lightweight, I think apple and developers are going to undermine user experience gradually over time.
    I am not a developer, even a decent programmer. I can only say, optimisation is necessary for any computer programs, as long as they are still in support cycle (even a week). IPhone hardware itself does need optimisation as well, although few members may mention it. To complete a "not" function, you can either use a super complex circuit, or simply several nand gates to achieve this.
    Apple wwdc mentioned that "making a product bigger is not a good design, although everyone can do this. What we need is to let product become more powerful and smaller." I am sorry because I forget the exact words.

    So, iOS is the same. Apple need to polish it, make it runs more fluent, and faster. Windows 8 is Microsoft's polish on their windows system, too.
