Get iOS 9 Now!
Today iOS 9 became available to the hundreds of millions of compatible devices in the world. While it's been available to developers since the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference in June, the public is finally getting their hands on the most refined iOS experience to date.
What's new in iOS 9:
The keyboard gets a big upgrade. On the iPad a two finger drag on the keyboard moves the cursor like a trackpad, making moving the cursor and selecting text much, much less frustrating. On the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus users can also access this feature by force-touching on the keyboard. Additionally there has been a shortcut bar added that includes cut, copy, paste, undo, and redo.
Also that useless (for most people) Newstand app is finally getting a replacement in the new News app. The News app will allow you to view news from sources like The New York Times, CNN, Wired, and ESPN using the new Apple News Format and will also support RSS feeds.
Notes has gotten a few enhancements with the ability to draw sketches, and add images, links, locations, documents, and audio. The new Notes app also will sync with iCloud Drive so you can view notes across devices.
Also included are improvements to battery, multitasking, and proactivity.
