    Just upgraded to iOS 9 and all works well with iPad mini 2. Just wanted to report it in case anyone is thinking of upgrading.

    Updated my 6+ and iPad Air 2 today. Flew both. No problems. Seems a little snappier on OS side of things.

    Supposed to be 20% faster on apps that are configured for 9.0! Perhaps DJI already built that into the last release?

    Not the DJI app, just the iOS system in general. I have the bug that it's not showing my locations now in the flight logs.

    Bummer! At least you can sync the flight logs with other devices still on 8.4.2 though, and view them from there with location info still intact. I just synced the Flight Logs to my iOS 9.0 iPhone 6+ and watched as it stripped all the location info on prior flights, and replaced it with Map Loading. :eek:Apparently, syncing from an iOS 9.0 device strips out flight location on that device. Must be a sync issue with iOS 9, so the bug won't show up until you force a sync. The arrow also no longer moves along the flight route either. Very annoying when you fly straight out and back along the same yellow line, as you cannot see the aircraft location any more on the return! :oops:

    9.0.1 or 9.0.2 does not work with P3P and mini 2. Lose FPV, the screen starts to lag, flicker and then go turn gray.

    Mini 2 has the slowest processor of all the previously "supported" devices, and it's not DJI's fault that Apple created an iOS update that steals system resources away, causing sluggish performance on all apps, including DJI GO.

    iPad Air 2 is still Apple's state of the art tablet, until the 12" one arrives...
    No update to the Air 2 to accompany iOS 9 speaks volumes. Even the brand new Mini 4 is still 1/3 slower than the Air 2 and has an inferior heat sink.
