Apple released a new update to iOS 9 and it’s exactly the type of update that people have been clamoring for. It fixes a whole bevy of bugs, but also comes with the addition of some pretty incredible and much-needed new features. It’s so feature dense that you probably didn’t even know that your phone now had some pretty amazing new capabilities. Take a look at some of the new reasons to love your iPhone.
Some of the biggest improvements come in the realm of photos. These days most iPhone users have hundreds, if not thousands of photos on their phones. It can be really frustrating finding them or dealing with them, though. The update now allows you to search through your photos via Siri if you can remember the date or the location of the photos. Simply ask Siri to find the photos from the bowling alley and voila! You can also finally select multiple photos by tapping and dragging your finger across multiple photos. It was extremely annoying in the past when you had to select each photo one by one. A new “hide” feature is also available so that you can prohibit people from seeing every single photo on your phone. Now you’ll never have to panic when you hand over your phone to show off pictures! Finally, you’ll now be able to draw on photos when you send them as attachments. This is a great feature that will be extremely valuable for collaborating or sending documents via email!
Some really hidden new features include the ability to do calculations from your search bar, check which apps are using the most battery power, allow cellular data to come to the rescue when your Wi-Fi connection is spotty, and lock the rotation of your screen by flipping the switch on the side of the phone. First, the calculations are great because you can quickly and easily do some math or even unit conversions without even needing to be connected to Wi-Fi. Checking which apps are battery hogs can help keep your battery lasting throughout the day. “Wi-Fi” assist is great because it lets cellular data seamlessly fill in the gaps in a Wi-Fi connection so that you never loser service. Locking the orientation of the screen with the “silent” switch is an opt-in feature, but if you’re the type of person who gets inordinately mad every time the video you’re watching flips sideways then you’ll be thrilled with this new feature.
Apple is constantly taking in user feedback and trying to find ways to correct problems. This new iOS 9.1 update proves that Apple is paying close attention to the user experience and is always looking for ways to make things better for their customers.
