With the new demand of 90 million devices being asked of Apple’s suppliers, there’s – logically – a brand new version of the popular iOS. Here’s 9 things to know about Apple’s new iOS 9, and we’re hope you’re as excited as we are, because there are some big changes.
The first and I dare say most important update is that of the security system. The new system means a redesigned, faster, more user friendly authentication system called “two-factor.” If anyone tries to break into your phone, he or she will be prompted for an authorization code, after which the phone will demand a six-digit pin. Also, there will be a new recovery system through text messages or a phone call directly from an Apple employee which will review your case and decide if you are yourself (or not).
The second change will be the introduction of a few updates to the the self-dubbed “revolutionary” Apple Music streaming service. The only problem is that sound quality is only good when on a Wi-Fi connection because of a self-righteous cellular data economy system. But not everyone has limited cellular traffic, so Apple will add the option to have high quality audio even when not using a wireless network.
If you’re addicted to selfies – like most of us have become – you’ll find the next feature pretty useful. Apple will introduce a special folder in which only pics made with the front-facing camera will be stored. This can prove quite a nice idea, especially if you often use both your cameras. They will also add a special folder for your screenshots and saved pictures.
Siri gets an update too – it will show suggestions in the search automatically and it will now have a vibrate option for when your iPhone’s in silent mode.
Folders also get a small update to a 4 by 4 configuration on the iPad, which will allow up to 105 apps per folder. Besides this, Apple also wants to bring Home Sharing back from the dead.
Another feature – Apple’s news service “Apple News” will also be available with the new version of the iOS. At first glance, the app will ask you for preferred news sources where you can add three or more content creating sources. The News screen will have a two side display, showing general news, as well as a section you can customize with your own interests.
Besides these, two more features stand out from the previous iOS 9 build. There will now be an app that lets you move your data from another device to your current iOS device, called “Move to iOS”, and also a search feature for your settings, so you won’t ever get lost again looking for privacy settings.
So, how does all this sound?
