As expected, iOS 9 brings a new font and a big change to the keyboard

Additionally, iOS 9 finally ends an annoying feature that made typing on the iPhone and iPad a little more difficult than it had to be. Since the beginning, the iOS keyboard always showed the upper-case form of each letter even if the phone was shifted to lower-case. Other platforms, including Android, dynamically change the look of each letter on the keyboard depending on the position of the shift key. With iOS 9, the iPhone and iPad's virtual QWERTY will do the same thing.
Developers get first crack at iOS 9 starting today. Apple will open its public beta program for iOS 9 next month.
This is one thing I was envy of in some androids - lower case letters in keyboard. It sucks that most of the time we'll be seeing lower case letters when keyboard is on display, but I'll have to get used to it - it is better after all.

Same boring, but effective keyboard.

You do now there are plenty alternative third party keyboards, right?

Third party keyboards tend to freeze the messenger app, otherwise I'd be with iPhone. Not sure if this was fixed with 8.3 or not, but I'm jailbroken on 8.1.2 and until a jailbreak happens for 8.3 or 8.4, don't plan on changing that.

I'd be happy just to get my keyboard working properly. Tried to write this on my ipad air but it's almost impossible! Every time I try to write something the keyboard shuts down in the middle of my words then when I reopen it I have to stop it from automatically capitalizing the next letter so if you see a comment from me that looks like this YoU know wHy

So...What's the difference in the font? The "sample images" above seem to have the same font. Same with the keyboards.
