New & Improved Apps
iOS 9 is also going to bring new apps and some exciting changes that we think will benefit the iPhone 5s and its users.
First and foremost, Apple is finally bringing transit directions to Apple Maps. That's absolutely huge if you depend on your phone for getting around town. Transit directions will be limited at first but Apple will continue to build on the early foundation as time goes on.
We're also excited about the new News application that will come in handy for those of you that need a quick shot of tech news or sports news during your commute. Tailor it to your interests and you won't have to jump around from app to app wasting time.
And finally, we're excited about the new Notes app. We take tons of notes on the iPhone and the new app has us extremely excited for a few reasons.
One, you can now make an easy checklist of to-do items. This is excellent if you use your iPhone 5s for work or school. And two, you can also sketch directly on the screen if you need to jot something down extremely fast during a lecture of meeting. That just scratches the surface.
These apps are going to help you get more out of a phone that's now going on two years old. That, and some of iOS 9's other features, will help to extend the device's life and that's huge if you aren't planning to upgrade anytime soon.
