9 Features We Want from the iOS 9 Release



In a few months we expect to learn the first details about iOS 9 features and even though the iOS 9 release isn’t likely until the fall, we already know a long list of features we want to see in the iOS 9 update.

Some of these iOS 9 features are tasks and activities we’ve wanted on the iPhone for years, while others are more recent additions to our iPhone wish list. With the increased power in the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and iPad Air 2, we want to do more with these devices.

You can already use some jailbreak tweaks to add themes to the iPhone and add features to Siri, but we don’t want to rely on an iOS 9 jailbreak to use the iPhone for these activities.

Check out these top iPhone features we want in the iOS 9 release.

In June you can count on an iOS 9 announcement at WWDC 2015. Even without an official confirmation at this time Apple uses this annual summer event to showcase new software ahead of the new iPhone release. We expect to learn about many, but not all iOS 9 features in June.

From this point you can count on a limited iOS 9 release to developers as a beta that will span several months. We may also see a public iOS 9 beta arrive after a few developer betas, offering wider access to regular users who can’t wait for the official iOS 9 release.

Apple traditionally sticks to a fall schedule and we expect the iOS 9 release date will arrive just a few days before the iPhone 6s release, or whatever Apple calls the next iPhone.

After using the iPhone for four years and Android for longer, here are the biggest features we want to see in the iOS 9 release in 2015.

Siri That Works With Other Apps

Siri That Works With Other Apps

Siri can open other apps, but it cannot control them in the ways we want. In ISO 9 we want Siri to move beyond opening Spotify or Nest and into allowing developers to connect to Siri for controls.

Ideally iOS 9 could allow users to say, "Hey Siri, play Daft Punk on Spotify," and users could listen to the music they want in the app that they want. Apple may choose to keep Siri controls to iTunes, iTunes Radio and maybe Beats, but that doesn't mean we'll like it.

The options are endless, but we would definitely use Siri to turn on Hue Lights, control the Nest thermostat and many other apps if Apple opened up support.

    I would settle for being able to see and comment on articles on the Web w/o the GD thing refreshing constantly. Being able to copy & paste a photo would be nice too.

    Ok i think apple are good but way behind when it comes to what people want to see and do on a phone.. al the comments above are great but again when comes to eg customisation of the phone its not HALF as good as a Samsung phone…Also the reason people jailbreak there phone is that it allows the iphone user to customise there phone better..themes on a iphone ie 3d live wallpapers would be great. But going further using the ability to customise the themes ive thousands of ideas for apple..not just themes but things that will make the iphone the BEST PHONE that everybody would love to have…PLEASE DONT TELL APPLE thats they might wnat to hire me lol !!

    Cheers Have a lovely day
