If there is ever a thing worth waiting for, a release from Apple will top the list for sure. Such has been the cult associated with this manufacturer, every time there is news about an anticipated update or release, the world goes crazy.
The same thing applies for the release of iOS 9 too. There have already been too many speculations as to what this latest OS update from Apple entails that we no longer know how to separate the chaff from the wheat. In this article, we have put together all the trusted information we could find about iOS 9 – The features, price, release dates & more.
iOS 9 Release Date Expectations
If there is one thing Apple is consistent with, it’s the pattern they follow for the release of their new models and OS updates. There are even updates that Apple has already started the public testing of iOS 9, however the veracity of this claim couldn’t be verified. But there are strong indications that this will be released anytime in the second quarter of 2015.
What to expect?
Hardly any iOS update passes without the launch of a highly innovative feature that takes the mobile world by storm. Even this time, we are expecting nothing less. Let’s take a look at what the previous versions brought
- IOS 8- Health, Continuity and Apple Pay
- IOS 7- Control Center, Touch ID, CarPlay
- IOS 6- Maps and Do not disturb
So, the stage is set for something magnificent to be included in the iOS 9.
Speed and Stability- iOS 9 Motto?
There are strong rumours that Apple is going to focus wholly on speed and stability with this release. If it is true, then that is a solid step from its engineers. It is no secret that its previous releases had its share of downside along with its glory. Some bugs had gone unnoticed by Apple technicians and they have been bogging down the performance for quite some time. So this news will certainly come as a rain in a desert for loyal Apple users across the globe.
There is also a very visible effort being made to keep the size of the update to a minimum, after all the hassle the iOS 8 update created. However, this is not to say that the iOS 9 will be nothing more than a performance booster. There is definitely going to be a whole array of new features, especially in the Maps department, but it’s too early to say.
Compatibility is another of the concerns that iOS users have. Every time a new iOS version is released, an older iDevice model is rendered obsolete. So it is only understandable that users are anxious about the compatibility of this latest release. We believe that this iOS update will be launched alongside new devices like a new iPhone, iPad, iPod etc. It is expected to be compatible with many of the current devices, but some of the older ones have to go.
All said and done, the iOS 9 is something that is truly worth the wait. We will keep this page updated on a regular basis.
