With the new iOS 9 available, Apple has made an effort to make apps run smoother and reduce technical issues. It has ensured better performance than the past phones. Let us look at the features that iOS 9 has to offer.

Apps Switch Faster

Thanks to the new interface, apps switch faster on iOS. Double tapping the home feature will pull up the new interface. The app will take up less space on your screen. Swiping up with your fingers on your Ipad will launch the app switcher.

Quicker Siri

Now Siri is able to understand and follow instructions in Indian accent which was rather difficult in previous OS. It is much more prompt to address your queries.

Proactive Support

This is one of the most valuable features of iOS 9. Depending on your habit, the OS will offer helpful suggestions. For example when you plug in headphones, iOS 9 will recommend that you pick up where you left off in your podcast. Or, if an unidentified number calls, iOS 9 will run through your emails, to find the contact’s name. Proactive search also suggests to you nearby points of interest – such as places to visit for shopping, food etc.

Optimised Battery

To extend the life of your phone, iOS 9 has a feature which stops the data use when the power falls below certain percentage and activates other settings to prolong your device’s battery life. This can be found under Settings > Battery. With iOS 9, the iPhone’s screen will not go off if the device is lying face down on any surface. Apple boasts that these fine-tunes will increase your iOS device’s battery life by an hour, with low power mode extending it even further.

Enhanced Security

iOS 9 has a six-code digit code instead of four digit passcode. It gives you more variations to set the password. You will have more combinations which will be much difficult to crack it.

Enhanced Keyboard

The enhanced QuickType keyboard app on iOS 9 comes with a shortcut bar that permits you to add attachments, copy or paste quickly, and comes with undo and redo buttons. iPad users can swipe on the keyboard with two fingers to access the trackpad mode. This makes selecting and editing text a lot easier. If you connect a physical keyboard to the iPad, you can use several keyboard shortcuts such as command-tab to switch between apps, making the experience more laptop-like.

Quick replies

If you get a text notification, you can pull it down and reply without opening the Messages app. This has been possible since iOS 8. With iOS 9, third-party app developers can execute this feature. So, for example, when a notification pops up that on Whats App, you just swipe down the notification and reply back to the person immediately.

Mobile Upgrades: Killing The Product Before Its Time?

Have to agree. The speed of newer phone models within the same series and newer app versions lead to more thought put into buying decisions. Phone lines have a definite short shelf life

Frequently upgrading the software is a real problem as updating the software might cause your phone to lag because of the older hardware.

They should come out with upgrades for the specific phones and not for the separate Operating System. This way a special version for your phones specific hardware can be made
