On 8th of June,2015 the brand new iOS 9 has been introduced at the Worldwide Developers Conference at San Francisco. As we have heard earlier that Apple will drop its support for its older version with the launch of each newer version of iOS. But this time the users were made to upgrade from iOS8 to iOS9 at zero cost. The public beta version of the iOS was launched on July. Lets have a look at some of the lesser known features of iOS9.
With the earlier version of iOS , the user friendly feature was the main lagging factor. There is no search on the setting tab. This adds inconvenience for the users who are unfamiliar with the features. The problem has been completely solved by the new iOS 9 as it has default search menu on the settings tab. If you want to change/modify any settings it can be directly accessed from the search bar.
Hearing and listening feature of Siri
Communication with the devices has become popular with the introduction of siri. Siri allowed users to communicate with their devices in several dialects and multiple accents. Earlier, with the older version of iOS8 , choosing to listen to British Siri also meant that phone was tuned to understand only British voice commands. Whereas in iOS9 language input and voice will be two separate functionalities. You may even talk in an Indian accent and receive the response in Brit tone.
Siri doesn’t work with silent ringer
You can shut down siri, when you have silenced your device, iOS9 adds an option. Especially in a crowded area, Siri can now communicate using text messages.
Low power mode
One of the major drawback with the smartphone is power consumption. Whereas in iOS9 this there is a feature Low power mode where the device will turn off background effects, animated wallpapers, disable app refresh to give you extra hours of usage.
No shift keys
No more “Is my shift key on”. This has been bothering the iphone users for a very long time. However, in iOS9 with the introduction of optional lower case keys, there is no necessity of the shift keys.
The usability of the ipod gets increased by connecting it to an external keyboard. Whereas in iOS9 several new shortcuts have been introduced.For example, in order to switch between active apps command+tab is used.
iCloud Drive a much awaited feature is now available as a physical app. In order to set the option go to icloud settings and enable the option.
Easy switch over
Nowadays the rate of people using iphones has increased rapidly. In order to increase the convenience of the users apple has introduced a new feature called ‘Move to iOS’ where users can easily switch from android to iphone. The entire data transfer is done quite faster and it also provided cleanup.
Six digit passcode
Whereas, with iOS8 there was only four digit passcode that can be used. But in iOS9 this facility has been extended to 6 digit alternative to enhance the security of the device.
Devices can be organized for different functionalities
Many users of the apple products have complained that they are receiving calls on their ipad rather than their iphone and text messages on mac. However, iOS9 introduces granular control that helps you to manage your devices and their multiple functionalities.
