Minor yet cool iOS 9 features you might have missed
posted by Nick T. / Jun 09, 2015, 12:27 PM
It is the kind of news you just can't miss because it is all over the internet – iOS 9 is now official and coming later this fall. Apple made the announcement yesterday, during the opening keynote at WWDC, and gave us a lot to be excited about by walking us through the new software's key features. Improvements in power efficiency and performance are on the iOS 9 change log, together with new ways to multitask, the addition of public transportation to Apple Maps, the overhauled Spotlight search experience. But so are a ton of minor, yet cool tweaks to iOS which didn't get highlighted during the iOS 9 announcement. They're what this post is dedicated to.
All features , which are loong time in android.. :)

Don't be salty. I rather have a working feature than a feature that feels like it's in beta.

Disagree IOS has always worked fine, android on the other hand has issues with performance, and slow updates to the system, I mean it takes an android phone to get an update over 6 months to a year , that is if they even update it. Yes the iPhone does not have a quad core or octavo re processor, yet performs better than most phones, bite the software is well polished.

What the hell are you talking about? # 9 alone is a bigger upgrade then the entire list of useless crap on android "M". Do you know how much software engineering goes into something like this? All the little crap is probably just random requests by customers - I like lower case letters practically speaking, but since 95% of typing is done in lower case letters, they keyboard will mostly always be in lower case - and that doesn't look good vs. capital letters. To each his own, guys. Stop hating. Apple is concentrating specifically on the gears and rods of the OS more than just in your face "ooh another gimmick" that android geeks get high on. Apple answered my requests with iOS 9 - I wanted a built in native iCloud Drive app - so I can delet the third party one. I can't wait to try Siri in her NEW British accent - that would be so proper. Google Now still sounds like old-old Siri. The rest, well, meh... Just a few extras to satisfy those that switched from android but miss certain aspects.

Re-read my post: list OF useless crap, there's a list of useful stuff and there's a list of useless crap. (Some stuff that M added is useful - like app permissions and app hibernation when not in use - you know like iOS did since day one). But the list of useful stuff is too short to use as comparison so I used the large "useless" list. You people jump into defense mode before even learning to read.

I can read but you worded it dodgy. You do that often as some kind of tactic for some reason which you later respond like "oh, I didn't mean that you can't read", especially on your vague comments. And you're also talking about yourself, there.

#9 is already sort of in Android (but not as good as Apple's new implementation) Read my comment on the App thinning article if you want to see how it currently done on Android That being said, I don't see why people are hating Android/Windows also take ideas from Apple as well, e.g. app permissons

Yeah Virgil I'm in spudded mood today, apple implemented a lot of great stuff that's not on android and every comment since the keynote "everything was copied from android". No not everything. Besides how do you not end up adding any features without finding similarities when android is 100s of OEMS and all fork out their own version of android and add their own features. Think about it.

Though I don't agree that all features were in Android, "The only responses they can come up with are "They just work", "Apple does it right", etc etc. Notice how they've gone quite about Google copying the name "Pay", after Apple renamed Passbook to "Wallet".

I love when iPhone news starting coming about. Not because I'm a fan boy, but it brings the crybabies out of the woodwork. The fact that Apple is still supporting a 4 year old phone is awesome. I don't think anyone even remembers a 4 year old android phone? Samsung users get to enjoy watching hands on videos of the new software on YouTube knowing they will never get it. "B-b-but android had these features for years!!" Well IPhones have them now, and they will work even better. Keep crying crybabies, there are bigger things to worry about other than cell phones.
