    I signed up for the public beta a month or so ago. I never received an email about the release. Is it available OTA?

    Wow! I love the new App Switcher. the News app is pretty interesting but I dislike it installed another five irremovable apps on my phone though, although I am guessing that some of them are just re-purposed apps we had before, like NewsStand.

    Find iPhone used to be a suggested app, now it's mandatory. I have no idea what Find Friends is but I don't want it. Obviously the Feedback app will go once the iteration goes to live (I hope).

    Some nice touches to the keyboard too; finally having lower case letters displayed on the keyboard is much more preferable to me. The addition of the Carplay functrions and the Battery low power mode indicators in settings is interesting too. All I need is a car that supports any kind of Bluetooth connection and i'm good to go!

    I'm feeling some type of way about this font. It's definitely different. I'll play around with other things tomorrow at work

    This is my first time using the public beta as well. So far so good🏾

    When swipe left from the home screen nothing shows. Bug? And where is the news app?

    Swiping left from the home screen (Search), it may take a bit to populate. Keep trying.

    With regard to the News app, it appears to be a US-only thing at this point. If you are not in the US, the only way to get it is to change your Region to US (Settings > General > Language & Region > Region > United States).

    I have an intense hatred of any screen being left of my home screen on any device. It's one of the main reasons why I added Nova Prime Launcher to my Android devices.

    Now, by swiping left, I get to a new search function that is EXACTLY the same as swiping down from mid of the screen.

    Please, please, please, Apple, give me a way of disabling the swipe left, I detest it!

    It might seem minor to most folks but to me, it's almost a reason not to upgrade to iOS 9. Yes I feel very strongly about it.

    EDIT: So I learned that it is supposed to be populated with stuff. Ugh, even worse. Mine isn't though, no matter how many times I reboot or leave it alone to 'populate'. It never does.

    I guess i'll have to get used to it up until the point a jailbreak is available and a tweak to remove this function is released.

    Man, I feel your pain.

    I just noticed tonight that the search summoned by swiping down on the home screen also includes "Siri app suggestions", similar to those found on the Search screen (swiping left to right on home screen). None of the other stuff (contacts, nearby, news info) are there, however. This addition is new to beta 3.

    For me, the annoying part is not that swipe left to right Search is there, but that there are 2 different search screens accessed by similar but different methods. It can be confusing and looks "amateurish" IMO.

    On the feedback app I requested that you can toggle how to access the search screen. Much prefer swipe down.

    I totally agree. If there is a way of disabling the swipe left screen entirely, I will be a happy bunny. Failing that, please, Apple, include all this rubbish in the swipe down search bar, with the same options to toggle it off in Siri Suggestions.

    This is smoother and faster than the developer betas?
    No it's the same thing but with different build numbers. The public beta can by installed OTA to start with but the developer beta has to be installed using iTunes first. I think that the developer beta doesn't have a a feedback assistant either.

    Find my iPhone and the feedback assistant keep logging out by themselves. Apple should've put more attention to this since its been happening since the iOS 8 betas from last year.

    Anyone else think that it would be really convenient to have Low Battery Mode in the Control Center and part of the first section of settings in the settings app?

    So far no issues for me. Only one app keeps crashing, besides that it's not bad.
