10 mighty annoying Apple iPhone 6s / iOS 9 features that need fixing ASAP
posted by Victor H. / Oct 13, 2015, 6:00 AM
There are a few things that really boggle the mind in mobile technology: it's 2015, and we're supposed to be living the future - after all, it's been more than 8 years since the original iPhone kick-started the era of the modern smartphone in its current form. We're supposed to have mature, feature-rich mobile platforms.
lack of a proper 4K video editor on Android, but it's far from the only platform that could use an extra coat of polish.Yet, we're often flabbergasted by the fact that some features are still missing on both Android and iOS. We've already shared our confusion with the
Some seriously annoying featuresAfter spending our first few weeks with the Apple iPhone 6s and iOS 9, we are finding some left-overs from the past that are mighty annoying in our modern day and age. Some of them really are not much of a secret, but they become all that more obvious when you are switching from Android. And it's a shame given how the iPhone 6s family itself is a very powerful device and iOS 9 manages to run impressively smoothly. With sincere hopes that these will get fixed soon, here are the 10 mighty annoying features that need fixing ASAP.
Apple user since the 4S, and I can tell you, I 100% agree with you on this.

Although these are mostly minor stuff but they're annoying as hell!

They are mostly minor, but there's a couple of complete show stoppers there for me. The syncing situation has always been the main reason I've stayed away from the platform, I was using my phone as a portable storage device for years before the iPhone came along and wouldn't give it up. I didn't know about the lack of keyboard number shortcuts though, that's just ridiculous. If I'd have ever got an iPhone it would have gone straight back because of that, though admittedly that's less of a problem now third party keyboards are allowed.

The custom keyboards on iOS are terrible at the moment, most cause ridiculous crashes and are generally slow. As for the keyboard shortcuts, now with 3D touch, they have a very good possible method to put the shortcuts there, but they have decided a cursor controlling touch pad feature is somehow more useful (II guess people are constantly arranging cursors on the screen instead of actually typing). The notification problem is likely them trying to differentiate by making something worse instead of admitting that the competition got it right. They also just got the shortcuts control center not too long ago so they'll probably copy the rest in a year or so. File manager will probably never happen because the second people don't need iTunes, it will die. Apple needs it to lock people down as much as possible. Finally, the settings will always be the worst part of iOS and always has been. Whoever it was that thought of having half the app settings in a separate area instead of inside the app itself should be shot. Everything else on the list is minor.

A Jailbroken iPhone 6 or 6 Plus (before the 8.4.1 update) is a wonderful device, with plenty of customization features and the ability to use tools to drag-and-drop to and from the device. Without that option, as well as being able to completely shut off the long, drawn-out transition animations (Reduce Motion isn't nearly enough), custom double-click Home Button controls, and various other stable, useful tweaks, the iPhone becomes a basic phone. iTunes is only one major annoyance, there are lots of others, especially if one has been absolutely spoiled by Cydia.

Minor my @$$. The problem is, you've gotten so use to doing stuff the wrong way, you dont even see it as a problem. But just because you can work with a problem, doesn't make it any less of one. The problem with how you fans think, is you have been taught and trained to ignore everything that is wrong about iOS and praise it because it posses no serious problem. A problem is a problem no matter the degree of seriousness.

And the iPhone 4 is when I found out it just works, its so easy to use, its so intuitive was all a myth. That was the first iPhone I ever used. Its amazing that some things I had issues with back then are still present....

Some of those are minor nitpicking but the others I can agree with. Android has some annoyances as well so there's some sacrifice.
