Apple never fails to be the talk of the town when it comes to their new products and software updates. This fall, Apple will release iOS 9, software that will be compatible with older versions of iPhone, iPad, and iPod. This is something great for people using old iPhones, iPads and even iPods since they will not be left out anymore.
What’s to look forward to? Siri has been a companion for Apple users when it comes to getting things done in a fast and easy way. Siri is now smarter and can now cover more topics! Siri can now understand certain terms such as “it” and “this” by scanning through open apps and process the command that needs to be done. She can also suggest appointments to add in the calendar. Together with calendar suggestions, Siri can now tell you when to leave for an appointment with the improved iOS 9 Apple Maps.
Speaking of Apple Maps, with iOS 9, Apple Maps will also feature public transit directions, which many Apple users have been waiting for. Now you can use it to search bus, train, subway, and even ferry routes. Nifty, isn’t it? This feature will be made available in Baltimore, Berlin, Chicago, London, Mexico, New York City, Philadelphia, San Francisco Bay Area, Toronto, and Washington D.C. Cities in China will also be included since iPhone is now emerging in places like Beijing, Chengdu, and Shanghai.
The new iOS 9 keyboard for iPad has improved as well with its built-in shortcut bar feature of next-word suggestion, which can be found above the first row keyboard letters. Commands like cut, copy, paste, bold, italic, underline, and attachments are seen at the side of next-word suggestions.
With all these new upgrades, consumers might wonder about the battery life of their iPhone. But now there’s nothing to worry since iOS 9 has longer battery life with the Low Power Mode that gives an extra hour to its usage.
These are just some of what’s in it for Apple’s new iOS 9 software. There may be a lot more features that Apple has not yet announced to the public – so let’s all look forward to that. To see the full list of features, you can visit this link.
