This is an amazing feature and will take some time to show its true benefits for you however the prospect of having a Proactive Personal Assistant sounds awesome. It is a marquee feature in iOS 9 that is contextual and is more like a predictive personal assistant as expected.

In fact, Apple claims that Proactive will learn your habits so well that it will start to anticipate your needs before even you realize.

For example, if you like to check on weather every morning, Proactive will start offering you a small bubble to open the app with just one touch or let's say you call someone regularly at a certain time during the day, Proactive will give you a button to call that person at the appropriate time on its own. Isn't that fantastic?
