Apple has set a benchmark for technological innovation and creativity. With every iPhone that it releases, Apple simply pushes the bar up. And with the release of iOS 9, it has done just that.
Here are ten awesome features of iOS 9 that must be known to you.
Sharing your voicemails just got easier. Send them to your contacts through a message, email, notes, voice memos or a variety of other applications.
You now have the option to hide photos. Simply select the photos you don't find viewable, press the lower-left corner of the screen and then tap the "hide" button. Good for those of you with secrets!
The new OS can now convert currency and do calculations in a heartbeat's time. You just have to type the math problem or currency conversion into Spotlight and it will give you the answer instantly. Saves a lot of time and energy!
This new feature will allow you to scale back the activity of open apps if the battery falls below 20 percent. You can also adjust this function manually. Great for those who worry about their phone's battery!
Selecting multiple photos in a camera roll used to be a painful process; having to select each individual picture. Now you just have to select one photo and drag your finger to select any other images. Now that's what we call making life simpler.
You can now draw on attached photos or sign important documents in your email. Just click and hold on an attachment to bring up the menu. You'll find a new option called 'Markup and Reply.' This is where you can add items to the top of your documents and send them along. Looks like we're headed towards a new world of simplicity and easiness.
Hit 'Battery' under Settings and you can now see what apps are sucking the juice out of your phone. So now those battery hoggers can't hide from you anymore!
You don't have to unlock your phone to open the wallet app and choose which credit card you want to use in Apple Pay. Just hit the 'home' button twice and Apple Pay will pop right up. Basically, no time to think twice before you pay!
You can now use the mute switch on the side of your phone to turn screen rotation on and off, a feature that was previously exclusive to the iPad.
