iOS 9 adoption at 12.5% and rising after 24 hours of availability

    Several things I'm not crazy about iOS 9:

     

    -Unless I'm missing something, it now takes more steps to mark spam email as "Junk" in the Mail app. Needlessly complicating.

     

    -I don't like the "cards" view of the open apps. It's more difficult to determine what's open and to close an open app because flipping through the "cards" is sloppy. Nothing snaps into place. There's no drop shadow or other element visually separating the cards. Pretty terrible compared to the previous implementation and seems like 'change for change's sake'.

    Typical... drive-by posters make spew their crap, with zero detail to back it up and as usual... disappear.

     

    Upgraded all my iDevices to iOS9.  Zero issues.  Seems to be more the rule, than the exception.

    Anybody had this problem? Everything works great but THE ACTUAL PHONE. Callers sound like old 78rpm records played at 33rpm, and I sound like so much high pitched squeaking to them. Any suggestions?

    It is important to note Mixpanel only track a selection of site. And none within China. However given EU + US represent nearly 50% of  iPhone users, even an average of 6% adoption rate is huge!*

     

    *Note there are roughly 400M active iPhone users, that is 24M iOS9 users in 24 hours.

    Anyone?



    are you keeping the phone. if you aren't I wouldn't bother. Your new phone will load an iOS 8 backup just fine. And if it's on 8.4.1 I believe that has a jailbreak out, whereas 9.0 does not. If you are selling privately that can be a selling point

    yep. its only sites and apps that voluntarily use their system. And they aren't necessarily common sites or apps. I know that Twitch.tv is one of the sites and presumably apps but that's hardly common use. 

     

    However the trend isn't a bad one. Even with their limited audience it would look bad if things were going slower.

    I have found iOS 9 to be a bit buggy (iPhone 6). For example, last night I would swipe up to bring up control center and my phone just froze. It did this on the lock screen and on the home screen. Restarted the phone. Same thing. Not cool. Also, some of the UI just feels rough around the edges. Today dictation just wasn't working, and in Messages where I would normally type text there was a static gray bar as though I had recorded audio, but I didn't. Had to force quit and reopen. I have to admit I'm not thrilled with it thusfar. Tap and hold to highlight and select text feels worse than before. That said, I know it will improve. Also not sure how thrilled I am with the shift from upper to lower case in the keyboard. I get it, just not sure I like it. And in Apple Music, it annoys the crap out of me that I can't scroll through recent radio stations in a cover flow fashion by swiping left or right. Such an obvious feature. And I can't find where my custom stations are. Ugh. Not an iOS 9 bug, but something I was really hoping they'd improve.

    In my case I can no longer add my card to Apple Pay, despite being able to do so in iOS 8 and in the 9 betas. There's also a font size issue in Podcasts when you start to play one, and that bug has been present for months and wasn't fixed (and is present in 9.1 beta). Low Power Mode is also rather buggy, and honestly seems to drain the battery worse.


    I'm sure that I'm imagining all these, of course.

    There's a ruckus going on at tech blogs regarding the News app.

    They're talking about how it could hurt Giggle, I just laughed.

    It depends on how quickly Apple can lure publishers to use Apple format. News is not perfect of course but if you like to read CNN, Times, New Yorkers etc. it's the best place to read those big publishers.

    working fine on my 5, 6, & iPad mini 2... pleased on the battery life it is bringing on to my 5.. 

     

    though i am not liking the new keyboard with those small caps.. maybe i've been used to seeing all caps on all keyboards (physical and previous iOS) and usually is using the same when handwriting..

    Forgot to mention the obvious. They're mainly talking about as blockers.

    And they aren't kidding:

    400

    Anyone know if there's a blocker that only blocks Goog ads??

    Ghostery can do that on OS X.

    Peace Blocker is powered by Ghostery, so that's what you'd want.

    yeah except that Ive has stated many times they don't do change for change's sake. but I'm sure you're right.
