when I swipe right from the home screen it should come up with Siri suggestions but all I see is a blank screen with search at the top.

I have an iPhone 6 +, I live in Australia but currently in Europe (possibly the reason it's not working??)

I have tried resetting my iPhone, tried turning Siri suggestions and Spotlight suggestions off and back on and then conducting a reset but still nothing. Any help??

For me it didn't seem to work at all in the first PB1. After a couple of weeks it appeared so I put it down to indexing. However since then it's randomly stopped working. It seems to go off in low power mode and sometimes not recover until a reboot. They also seemed to break in the interface for it in PB2.

Weirdest thing was when I had pb1 it was initially working and then stopped and due to other issues with iCloud Photo Library I reverted to iOS 8.4

I thought I'd try pb2 and its still not working for me. I'll wait a few days for indexing, but I still find it strange it worked for me immediately when I first got pb1 a few weeks ago.

Thanks

It works for me. Contacts and app suggestions, then activity icons, then news headlines.
It didn't appear on PB2 until a couple hours after installation. I'm pretty sure it has to analyze your activity and location for a bit to work--I mean that's what the point of it is anyway.

Yeah I guess, but it's been over 2 days now and still nothing...

About four hours after installation, I tried the swipe. The first two times I got nothing, but on the third try everything was populated.

I've had the GM for a week and I never get those app recommendations on the lockscreen that they showed at WWDC.

I found my issue was because I was overseas in Europe as soon as I landed in Austtalia the Siri suggestions screen works when I swipe right.

Has anyone figured out how to turn on the proactive app suggestions ? As I can't get these either. I think a few of us are in the same boat

I am not either on two iPads. My iPhone shows them. The iPads do not show the swipe from left to right on the home screen? What's up with that? Is this feature not available on iPads? (iPad 2 and 3)

I just asked a friend and his Air 2 and Mini 2 support it. The iPad 3 supports Siri. How much processing power can it take to show the Proactive Search feature?
