Update : Apple Announces iOS 9: new features and better performance!

At WWDC 2015, Apple officially announced, along with OS X 11.10 El Capitan and a new version of WatchOS leading the native apps on Apple Watch, the highly anticipated iOS 9, mainly aimed at improving the stability and the fluidity of the devices, without forgetting some valuable new features of which we speak in this article.

In iOS 9, Apple has introduced, first, a new font for all texts from messages to the name of the app, from the lists to the menu, all text on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch will now be made of the same font Apple Watch, that "San Francisco". It is a tweet that according to Apple and many users Apple Watch is easier during reading.

iOS 9 also improves Siri, now with new graphics taken from Apple Watch and functions with more "proactive". Looking at a web page in Safari, for example, you can use the voice assistant to record a memo with links to the page combined.

But the most important news of iOS 9 is undoubtedly Proactive own: for example, with this feature, the iPhone will assist you in making the notes, in accepting calendar invitations (even when suggesting possibly leave a meeting, for example if After you have nothing else to do) in providing directions on-the-go and you always listen to the right music at the right time. In addition, when you receive a call, the iPhone will suggest to what person could come. Besides that, Proactive will provide access to the suggestions of the Syrians, for example to call someone or open an app in a specific time of day. Proactive act fully in accordance with the user's privacy, working "on-device" rather than relying on Apple's servers, which will come only encrypted information. In essence, Proactive is all focused on notifications and suggestions: a new way to search and find the information we need from the iPhone and iPad!

Passbook in iOS 9 application has been renamed "Wallet" app now and become more designed for mobile payments via NFC and that the use of e-tickets: a unique app for tickets, credit cards / debit and boarding passes, as well as the app to use Apple Pay, which will arrive in England next month.

In iOS 9 also it improves the app notes, now with a status bar to have everything under control. Apart from this, users can enter reminders in the notes, pictures (possibly taken on the fly with the camera) and draw freehand.

The app Maps for iOS adds 9 directions for public transportation, exactly as predicted by rumors more listed. Users can choose to change the means of transport which receive dele directions at any time. For example, if you walk you will have the information specifically designed for a pedestrian, and if we get into a subway, for example, the signs will change and we will receive all the information on train schedules and possible delays. At the moment, this feature is supported by 300 cities in the world.

adds iOS 9 app called "News" which replaces "Kiosk". This application takes the graphic style of Flipboard and offers the ability to read text on the iPhone and iPad optimized. In News you can create a customized news feeds based on your interests, just as in Flipboard. News will begin to be available in the coming months in the USA, UK and Australia.

The keyboard of iPad better and earns more convenient functions that Apple has introduced the iPhone 6 Plus, or copy-paste keys, arrow keys to move the cursor and also a new feature that allows you to perform the swipe with two fingers turning the same keyboard a multi touch trackpad. We may in fact move the cursor with two fingers or select text with a quick press with two fingers.

IPad comes the ability to run two apps at the same time on the screen. Simply opening the new iPad Multitasking, users can scroll through the app running in multi-screen and choose which leave open with another. In the presentation were shown Messages, Photos, Safari and Notes and Calendar. This function

Besides that, iPad will also be possible to display a video without opening the application that is playing or in other apps. One thing really fantastic!

The battery saving mode arrives on iOS 9 to improve the battery life of iPhone, extending the lifetime of the device up to 3 hours!

iOS 9 weighs only 1.3 GB as OTA update compared to almost 5 GB required by iOS 8, so as not to weigh too much on older devices with less GB available.

With Apple iOS 9 also extends the capabilities of Apple Car and HomeKit, it made compatible with iCloud. But the biggest news, developer side, is that Apple has made Open Source Swift, the development language used by applications to iOS!

iOS 9 will be available soon for developers (in beta) and for all at the end of year, probably around September. The devices are supported by the new update are the same that have received iOS 8, ie iPhone 4s, iPhone 5, iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, 6 Plus iPhone, iPod touch 5G, iPad mini, iPad Mini 2, iPad 3 mini, iPad Air, Air iPad 2, iPad 2, iPad 3 and iPad 4.
