Any idea if the region Malaysia with the language choice of English is available in this release? Apple for some weird reason never supported English language in Malaysia region.

Well, I can tell you that the phone feature works now if you also have Yosemite DP3 installed. Pretty awesome. Never miss a call again and the days of hastily looking for your iPhone when it rings and you misplaced it, are over.

What makes you think the information in the 2 Weather app is different?

It doesn't mention the information of the weather, it's the UI, how the data is presented. Read the words next time.
