    Proactive Siri. I like that I can slide over to the left in the mornings and have my apps I open each morning ready to go.

    2 things I enjoy.

    1) the multitasking with iPad Air 2. Even though right now it's only multitasking with Apple apps, I still like it
    2) the "Return to ....." link when you respond to a notification from a different app.

    Proactive Siri and Siri are not exactly the same thing. Proactive just looks at use based on time of day or action to decide what you might do. In the morning I open 3 apps routinely, they are waiting on me now. When I get in the car and connect to bluetooth, Music is ready to go. In the afternoon when I connect headphones music is ready. Its things like that. Its related to Siri but its not the asking and getting a reply part of Siri.

    Split screen on the Air 2 and the San Francisco font.

    IMO Ad Blockers are the best feature. Even the simple open source blockers are great. They will improve websites loading speed, data usage, crashes due to lack of memory, battery life and privacy!

    Multitasking on iPad, on iPhone i honestly think it's the new notification center. It's such a small change but it's so, so much better than having them ordered by app.

    New notification center? Are you talking about the grouping of notifications?

    Yes. It's really not a big update at all for the iPhone overall.

    ooh one thing I just remembered, a while ago someone said that there is now an API for quick reply. of course, us regular folk haven't been able to see that yet, but if/when apps update to take advantage of that, that may become my favourite feature

    When it's implemented, spotlight search integrated with apps. :D

    ^ This. Deep search will be handy once 3rd party apps add the function.

    One thing I hate is how iOS 9.0 GM and 9.1 PB 1 have removed the Nearby portion of the Proactive Search screen below contacts/apps and above news. They seem to have limited it to US and China only. Sucks because it was present throughout the entire beta in Canada but now gone.

    Wifi calling for AT&T... Nothing beats being able to use a phone as a phone... I work in the middle of a big building in Manhattan. I haven had a signal since I started working there.

    +1. I have poor signal at home and the cell phone is unusable. I take messages on it and call the person back from skype/landline.

    I just today noticed that the nearby locations displays different categories depending on time of day.

    In the morning it showed "breakfast", "lunch" in the afternoon and "restaurants" in the later evening. In the evening "nightlife" shows up. Pretty cool.

    Noticed the same thing. I thought I must've changed something and have been changing settings left, right and centre.

    Curiously, all the nearby features aren't in maps for me either. I'm sure before, if I clicked the search field in Maps, I'd be presented with options for nearby things. Now there's nothing.

    Nearby has been completely removed for anywhere outside of US and China according to here http://www.apple.com/ios/feature-availability/#maps-nearby

    Pretty dumb. Considering it was available throughout the entire beta process, then taken out for 9.0 GM and beyond (9.1 beta.)

    Sent feedback but I highly doubt any answers will be given as to why.
