    Does anyone else have a second or two if they swipe down and search for an app or anything? I use this to find 90% of my apps...i'm not sure if it's something I can turn off to make it find faster or if anyone else has experienced this with the first beta.

    Hmm,I wonder why mine is doing it. Not a deal breaker to go back to iOS 9 but it is a little annoying. .

    Yes that has been happening to me since day 1 of the beta. It takes around 3-5 seconds to give results. Although I think the results are more extensive now with 'Suggested website' and 'Wikipedia'..? Not sure if they were there before.

    That's an iOS 8 feature, and I read somewhere in these forums that support for more countries were added recently.

    Does it help if Siri Suggestions is turned off?

    I'm having that problem. It takes a while to find the apps. The funny thing is the keyboard predicts the app I want to open before the phone actually finds it.

    Same here with the slight delay before it finds and displays the app. I have been trying lately to use Spotlight less now that 3D Touch is getting so much focus. It has not been easy though since I have used Spotlight so long I forget what folder many of my apps are in. Still use Spotlight enough to know there is a delay but suspect it will be better by this fall.

    Exact same thing. It is predicted a good 3 seconds before it shows.

    Not complaining but wanted to make sure I'm not the only one :)
