    The countdown timer working when the clock is in 12 hour mode!

    Yes, that's finally fixed!!

    I also really like the two finger "trackpad" feature on iPad ...

    The "Back to....." shortcut if you come out of an app due to a notification.

    PS, might want to edit your original post ;o)

    I noticed that any reminder alerts you haven't acknowledged will stay on the lock screen until you do. Previously (IIRC) they would clear as soon as you unlocked the phone.

    DEFINITELY!

    Forgot about that one!

    In fact, I'd say it's the most important one for me as I used to forget about reminders all the time!

    It's crazy to think that a company such as Apple, who prides itself on detail, would wait until iOS 9 to fix these "little things" ;-) ...

    It's nice, but it's not positioned in the best place.

    I'd have positioned it at the bottom of the screen, as it obscures the cell/wifi signal.

    Edit my priginal post?

    Unless the Misspelling of countdown was deliberate? :)

    You have an unfortunate typo :)

    I like how in photos and messages you can just slide a picture down to dismiss it. So much easier and quicker than pinching it away or using the back button.

    Love stutters and lags, one of the best new feature in my opinion. :) /s

    Just realised I can perform math calculations in spotlight. I guess that's one way of getting around the iPad's lack of a calculator.

    Agreed.

    Just like the Twitter app.

    It's the little things, eh :)

    Yes, I like that one as well.

    I've turned off Siri suggestions in Spotlight, though.

    Ha!

    I've been using Reduced Transparency on my iPad 4 since iOS 8 and it dramatically helps with stutter/lag ...

    I did wonder how it slipped through myself. Although maybe it's similar to Scunthorpe in that respect.

    Re the maths in Spotlight, I wonder if James Thomson (Pcalc) is a bit miffed now

    What devices are you running iOS 9 on?

    Will you be getting an iPad Pro, by any chance?

    Spotlight on Mac has had this function since the early OS X days so it's not that surprising.

    You can also do unit and currency conversion in spotlight.

    I just tried a bunch of different conversions; currency, length, time, volume, speed, weight and it did them all. Very cool feature, I can delete my universal conversion app now!

    6 Plus (soon to be 6S Plus) and iPad Air. No iPad Pro for me. Not until we need a new laptop and then maybe

    edit to add: No UK pricing for the Pro yet so I expect us to get ripped off somehow. Cynical? Moi?

    1. When deleting multiple photos, after you press select you can drag your finger for mass selection instead of manually tapping numerous photos to delete.

    2. When receiving a call/placing a call from a number not saved in your contacts, your phone will scan emails, texts and try to figure who it may be :eek:

    A simple one I really like is the search in Settings. Makes life a lot easier.

    Call logs are now synced across devices, both for phone calls and FaceTime. This is actually really helpful for me. I just wish they'd give us access to voicemails across devices too! :rolleyes:

    I see 'reduced motion' on my iPhone - but, not 'reduced transparency'..

    Is that an ipad only setting?
