After being removed from the left swipe in iOS 8 to a drag down option, the left swipe is back. now it can show you the latest news (much like this website) along with favourite contacts, locations, and even apps.

4. Multi tasking on iPad
A feature that could have been introduced many years ago is now finally here, multi tasking on the iPad is brilliant. Only Apple apps and supported third party apps work at the moment but we are hoping that many more roll out in the future to fully utilize this killer feature.

Although this is probably not evident to you right now, but the new operating system is by far one of the most energy efficient Apple has ever released.
