Apple's New iOS 9 - Author: Kelly

Apple's New iOS 9


Iphone owners have been updating to IOS 9.1 or 9.2. These new updates came with a big change, new emojis, multitasking (for iPads), improvements to Siri, a way to save your battery life, and much more.

Let's start with emojis. If you look at your ‘Emoji Keyboard,’ you’ll see many new emojis that were added and some other features that you didn't know were there. Some long-awaited emojis are the lion, taco, hot dog, robot, unicorn, rock on hand, and so much more. They have also added different family emojis. You may have also noticed that you can change the skin tone of some emojis. You can choose from 5 skin tones and the default yellow.


On iPads, you can now multitask. For those who don't know what this means, it’s a way to have two apps open at the same time. It's basically having two tabs open on a computer. For example, you can be on safari and then decide that you want to text someone at the same time. All you need to do is swipe the very right side of your screen over to the left.


My favorite improvement that was made was to Siri. The change that was made was how Siri looks when it is calculating what you are saying. Siri was just a white sound wave but now it is a rainbow sound wave.

In settings, there is an option to turn an a setting that saves your battery life. Where your phone shows what your battery is at is usually green, but when you have this low battery usage option turned on your battery is green. If this option is turned on and your phone is charging, your phone will automatically turn this option off when your phone reaches 80%. Some say that when this option is turned on it takes longer to load things. So you need to consider, is saving your battery worth having slow and long loading times?

There are many other simple changes that have been made like bug fixes and other small stuff but these four things are what most people have noticed.
