My thoughts about iOS 9 beta 1

In this episode of my English short-form podcast called The 5 minute podcast, I talk about my thoughts of the iOS 9 beta 1 I've been testing for a few days now thanks to Rich Woods, a member in my huge Apple community that inspired me and helped me installing it. I really like iOS 9 but unfortunately it's very buggy. Download and listen to this episode via iTunes or manually from this RSS Feed.

Show Notes:

Things I like with iOS 9:

  • The go back to app button (even if it's placed in the top left corner)
  • The touchpad on display feature that makes it possible to move the cursor like a mouse pointer with two fingers on the display.
  • The new Siri and Apple's “Intelligence” feature.
  • The new spotlight search
  • The new app switcher interface
  • The new scrub feature in the photos app to scroll through all photos fast

iOS 9 beta 1 bugs that I've noticed on my iPhone 6:

  • can't see my Flipboard magazines when sharing from share sheet. That could probably be Flipboards fault though. The app probably needs to be updated to support iOS 9.
  • Google's Hangouts app shows new notifications even if there isn't any
  • terrible battery drain. Could eventually be better after some days because I think the new “Intelligence” feature indexes and try to learn everything about me at the moment.
  • get the message “can't connect to the iTunes store” when using Apple's podcast app. Has something to do that I am in Sweden and uses the Swedish iTunes Store.
  • can't download my podcast in Overcast without Wifi even if I try forcing it to do so. But maybe that has to do with the same iTunes Store bug?
  • Feedback:
    • You can send me feedback by email to or on Twitter.
    • You can also send in questions and tips as audio files to me, so that I can add them to a podcast. That way you can be in one of the episodes. I will of course link to you and talk about where they can follow you if you like.
    • Please give this Podcast a review in iTunes if you like it. It would help me a lot.
  • Follow me on Twitter
  • Check out my Swedish long form podcast.
