What's new in iOS 9

With every update from Apple, their products get a whole slew of new features and capabilities. Remember, this is a FREE upgrade, so be excited. Here’s a quick overview of what to look forward to.

Apple created a new, beautiful News app as well as updated Notes, Maps, Wallet, and also introduced a new CarPlay app for supported systems.

The updates to the Notes app are really exciting - they’ll be enabling checklists, sketches, and photo attachments. This brings more functionality to their iconic Notes application, which I’m sure will appeal to just about any iPhone user.

Maps is being updated with transit directions, Wallet is being given compatibility with a larger range of cards (including reward cards!), and Apple Pay is being made more convenient with the ability to simply double-click the Home button when your iPhone to use its features!

Something that’s been available on Android devices for a while now is finally coming to Apple devices as well! With the iOS 9 update, you’ll be able to utilize a few new features - Slide Over, Split View, and Picture in Picture in order to increase your productivity.

Slide Over will enable you to “slide” another app in on top of the one that you’re currently working on. This would let you do quickly respond to messages without leaving your Youtube video or jot down a note while reading through an interesting article in their News app.

Split View is pretty self explanatory - you’ll be able to “split” your screen and have two apps open at the same time! This really makes use of the extra screen real estate on your iPad, although this feature will only be available on the iPad Air 2 at the beginning. It’s likely Apple will bring this feature to other devices in the future although hardware limitations may make it difficult.

Picture in Picture is essentially a floating media player that you can use to watch videos or FaceTime while you’re reading your emails or browsing the web! A functionality that has only really been available on a laptop or computer has finally come to the iPad!

Operating system updates might not seem all that exciting,but I’m certainly excited for what’s coming in iOS 9! Refinements “under the hood” in the operating system can make huge differences without the user really noticing any changes. For example, Apple says iOS will give you up to an hour of extra battery life without you having to change a thing! Also, the size of the operating system will be going down, leaving you with more space for your pictures, songs, and videos. And, of course, just like with any operating system update, your device should feel faster and smoother with the changes coming in iOS 9! iOS 9 will be bringing in a lot more than what was mentioned above, including a smarter Siri, easier Android migration, and more! Also, Apple has provided an iOS 9 compatibility chart showing which devices in particular will be able to take advantage of the new operating system.

Compatible Devices : * iPhone 4S * iPhone 5 * iPhone 5C * iPhone 5S * iPhone 6 * iPhone 6 Plus * iPad 2 * iPad 3 * iPad 4 * iPad Mini * iPad Mini 2 * iPad Mini 3 * iPad Air * iPad Air 2 * iPod Touch 5th Generation
