    I like to use my Apple Wireless keyboard with my ipad sometimes and the one thing that annoys me is how i can't really do much with it. Outside of maybe changing volume or skipping tracks on songs, it seems like there's alot missing. One thing i would absolutely love is being able to use the arrow keys to scroll down webpages and stuff. Are we able to do that in iOS9?

    I believe so, yes. And I think some shortcuts familiar to OS X are getting added as well.

    They talked a little bit about it in the keynote.

    Yup. You can now scroll the arrow keys down/up to browse web pages... It was an annoyance of mine before iOS 9. But now... A BT keyboard is definitely an added benefit to have with the iPad and not just something a device to input text.

    And when using iMessage... You can now hit return on the keyboard to send a message, previously it just goes to the next line. There's plenty of other useful tips... I just hope devs implement keyboard shortcuts in their apps.
