iOS 9 Most important Features (WWDC 2015)

Apple-News

 iOS 9 was revealed at WWDC 2015.
This update is to major but does bring some new apps and features.

Apps
“iOS 9 adds a new app to your Home screen. News conveniently collects all the stories you want to read, from top news sources, based on topics you’re most interested in” — Apple
Essentially it’s like Apple’s version of Flipboard. It will grab news that you are interested in from major news sources and will essentially be personalized.
“Youtube Link”


tech-wwdc-2015-live-ios-9-notes-appSo Notes app got a slight update. It is now easier than ever to make notes, a checklist, add photos, and even draw/sketch. The app now allows you to add pictures, links and even maps from other apps. Not just simple url’s.  And according to apple if you can’t remember where you added a specific item/attachment to “The Attachments Browser organizes all the items attached to your notes in one simple view, so it’s easy to find what you’re looking for”(Apple).

In the new Maps update. We finally get a public transportation guide. And in select cities we can see the rout in a new transportation view. The update promises to plan a whole rout for us from A to B.
The new Nearby feature allows us the user to see stores, places to eat, gas stations etc… (better late then never)

Apple pay has been repackaged into this new Wallet app. You will be able to use Apple Pay to make purchases with debit cards(that support apple pay) or store credit cards such as Kohl’s Charge or JCPenney card.
Reward
cards will also be present in this app as they were in Passbook. Apple also added a shortcut of sorts to the Home button. By just simply double-clicking the Home button when your iPhone is locked you will be able to access Wallet and pay with Apple Pay.


Ios 9 Features

For iPad only we will now have the ability to do multitask. Yes this has been a feature on other tablets. So its good to see that apple is finally trying to make the ipad a bit more computer like.
There are two parts to this new multitasking feature.
First its the Slide Over feature.

This is a quick Multi-tasking feature that allows you to see another application without closing the first one. This is just so you can quickly look something up on the web or to respond to a message. It won’t allow for interaction with the other app.

Splitview is when you actually have two functional and interactable apps running side by side. You can resize the view of apps. This is similar to what can be done on a Computer.
This allows for people to do things such as sketch with a reference or write a paper while looking at information on a web page. It makes that line between tablet and laptop very fine.

Lastly the last multitasking feature Picture on Picture. This feature is activated while using FaceTime or watching a video. When you press the Home button the video you are watching will scale down to a video screen down to a corner of your tablet and continue playing. When you click on another app it will open and your video will continue to play in the corner even during the use of your 2nd app.


These Are the most important Features that I found where at least a little game changing, in terms of moving closer to what a lot users wanted. A lot of these features where just updates, but i don’t believe that we need mind-blowing leaps in tech to be satisfied. These are minimal changes apple has taken up but will with no doubt help improve their over all products
Thanks for reading hope you have a better feel of what iOS 9 is and does.
