    iOS 9 has a ton of new features but also some that have been left out. Which of these (or what others) do you miss?

    Nothing whatsoever. 8 is a faded memory for me.

    Nothing. iOS 9 has been so much smoother than iOS 8.

    Less clutter back from iOS 7, If I wanted Find my Friends or iOS Tips, I'd download the apps from the App Store.

    very minor for me, but I hate how there is a screen now to the left of the home screen. I am constantly going there on accident when switching through screens.

    If the worst thing about iOS 9 is smoothness, then I guess it's a pretty damn good release. Where's this years whatever-gate?

    All apps having mobile data toggles.
    All apps having notifications access.
    iCloud backup not being a buggy mess.
    Nothing else really, iOS9 runs sweet on my 6S+ aside from the above 'background' issues.

    Safari was a crashing mess in iOS 8 on my 6+. On iOS 9 it's been perfect for me.

    I'm enjoying iOS 9 so much more than iOS 8, plus future updates will improve it!

    Nothing - IOS9 is the smoothest, fastest release with the best battery life of any release that I can remember. Much better than IOS8 for me.

    The overwhelming positive feedback about iOS 9 performance is shocking.

    I can't believe it.

    But the poll shows otherwise.

    They still do. The problem is that this particular toggle only appears after an app has accessed mobile data at least once.

    This is one of the few things I liked about iOS 7. I never use Spotlight and this pull-down screen was just so much easier to ignore. :(

    iOS 8 was hell for me...I'm not kidding. So was iOS 7.
