Ever open Notification Center and find that you’re partially scrolled down? As of iOS 8 the scroll state is persisted from last time it was open.
This causes confusion:
-additional gestures to see recent notifications
-unclear ordering or recency when view is show
-if scrolled by chance to only have one app banner, may be surprised to find additional notifications above.
The scroll state could be reset after a new notification and after a timeout (perhaps 1 minutes). Preferably the state would be reset every time it is reopened always showing the freshest state.
Wish Siri was faster?
Here is a nice setting tweak to speed up Siri and make her more responsive. I found disabling the Voice Feedback (so Siri doesn’t talk out loud), makes her snappier.
Downside: You will have to read the screen.
Settings > General > Siri > Voice Feedback
Change to: Handsfree Only
|3. Voice Feedback
|4. Change to Handsfree Only
From my understanding, this probably bypass the need for Apple’s servers creating the verbal dictation audio, and having to transfer it over Cellular Data / Wifi to your device. Aka, time.
Reliability boost? Maybe.
As a bonus Siri overall seems more reliable as , I get a lot fewer “I’m unable to process your request right now” responses it seems. But you will have to find out for yourself there. But with out a doubt Siri is a bit faster.
For great accuracy when voice dialing and using Siri on an iPhone, as soon as it starts listening — pause for a moment, silent — then speak.
This allows the iPhone a moment to recognize the ambient sound where you are. If you start talking right away, your voice becomes part of the the ambient noise. The poor thing will be confused!
Want Siri to be faster? I wrote about that.
