iOS 9 comes for (almost) all
Installation despite limited memory
Apple has learned this: When you update to iOS 8 many users had tons of apps and data delete, so that the update at all fit on the device. In iOS 9 there should be no more such problems: free memory is less for the update required as its predecessor – 1.3 instead of 4.6 gigabytes. When you first try on iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and iPad Air 2 uploading lasted only a few minutes accordingly. After re-entering the Apple ID the machines were ready for operation immediately. If 1.3 gigabytes no longer on the iPhone fit, iOS 9 holds a new feature ready: If desired, the system uninstalled for the duration of the update some apps to create the necessary space. So iOS to 9 after installation restore all apps along with the data, so no data is lost during the transition phase. At the same time Apple has the prices for i Cloud storage lowered: 50GB is now available for 99 cents per month, one terabyte for 9.99 dollars.
Move to iOS for Android Migrators
Apple plans to make Android users to switch to an iPhone easier. Next to this the Apple programmers have created their own Android-App: “Move to iOS” is according to Tim Cook shortly in the Android app store have to be had. It is probably rarely app give that Google would rather have blocked. But an obvious blocking competitors in their own store Google is unlikely to dare, has Google but the monopoly of the only per-installed app stores on Android devices.
3D Touch: unfortunately not for all
One of the biggest innovations in the new iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus is the new 3D Touch control. Behind it a kind of right mouse button for Smartphone hides: By pressing more on the screen, the display will show a pop-up window. In this, you can select additional functions quickly. Or you get a preview about on a selected photos in the gallery. The special feature: you do not leave the current window, after release of the display you’re back in the same place as before. Basically, iOS 9 should be so adapted that the previous models iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus that could use all similar: So it is conceivable that the 3D Touch-pop triggered in older models rather than through pressure by prolonged holding of the finger on a spot becomes. Unfortunately, Apple has revealed no corresponding function.
iOS9 Finally with power save mode
According to Apple, is an iPhone running iOS 9 already in normal operation for about one hour longer on a single charge persevere as iOS 8. In the first beta version of which nothing could be felt: The battery was significantly faster empty than 8. iOS Depending Use the energy also exhausted after two hours 50 percent. But already at the last public beta versions was the run time is clearly better, the mistakes of the first Beta Wii with Android and Windows Phone, it should also give a special power-saving mode (low-power mode), under which the equipment less energy consumed.After activating this mode come according to Apple promises an additional three hours.These switches iOS push services from, Apps Update no longer be in the background and account for the parallax effects on the home screen. The first beta versions of the power saving mode even cared for irritation: New mails called the iPhone from only if you actively launched the Mail app. The Whats App reception worked surprisingly still, the envisaged according to Apple performance throttling was not noticeable when trying out. Basically, you use the iPhone in low power mode with all the services and apps. In the settings themselves can also see which app have consumed in the last hour the most power.
Following the example of Google Now and Microsoft Cortana is Apple developed Siri now a complete personal assistant – and automatically tries to anticipate what the user wants to just do (Siri Pro-Active). So iOS 9 can in the moment when the user plugging a headset, automatically start the last heard music. Or the audio book in the car call when the iPhone is connected to the hands-free system of the vehicle. Date invitations that arrive via e-mail, automatically end up as a tentative date in the calendar (but without an automatic confirmation). Timed reminders that Lichtenstein the user via Siri will also appear in the calendar.
Is Apple more secure than Google?
In one point, Apple tries to differentiate from Google and Microsoft: While there is a lot of the intelligence in the cloud, says Apple’s software development chief Craig Feds right, the evaluations were carried out purely locally: “Everything happened on the device! And it remains on the device, under your control, “The intelligence is not associated with the Apple ID and will not also bring with other companies Gillette. iOS 9 other security functions. For phones that are fingerprint (Touch ID) unlock leave, Apple sets a six-digit lock code as the default. In addition, the Group facilitates the encryption of data connections on iOS. 9
9 iOS for the iPad: The Tablet is growing up

This allows the on-screen keyboard to use as a notebook track pad. And who a proper keyboard to his iPad, receives new shortcuts, for example for changing between Apps. Noch important: As for the coming Mac OS Mac OS X El Captain announced at last can also be the iPad two apps in separate windows side by side use. This also means that both apps running in parallel in real multitasking. However, there’s a catch: the new multi-window mode there exclusively for the iPad 2. Air On older i Pads but can nevertheless specify an app for fast fading.
Multi-window function on iPhone
For video playback, the multitasking can incidentally be used on the iPhone, within the same app, the benefit is limited, however: So the user can a running video in the YouTube app via finger swipe down to bring in a minimized window and view there continues while He scrolls simultaneously in the list of video search results. After a change to another app the video window not remains in the foreground.
Apple Pay: Nothing new for Germany

iOS 9: Notes
Thanks Continuum connection notes leave across devices on iPhone, iPad and Mac hold.In addition, the note-app under iOS 9 now has a format bar, and my fingers are small drawings to paint. Super – the function enthusiastic at the first try. However, the comparison with the Mac worked only after the testers there the update to Mac OS X El Capitan aufspielten.
USA only: The news app
The new News App Apple wants to make messages easier to read: texts, photos and even videos are there in an optimized form ready – a challenge for competing apps like Flip board. On German devices of iOS was the 9 News App but not to be found in public beta.
Apple Maps: More public transport
After initial difficulties, good for Apple Maps now quite as an alternative to Google Maps.With iOS 9 Apple Maps brings public transport agents on the map; to each station also appear several alternative routes, however, the last only worked in Berlin. Moreover, times are included to footpaths.
Are all the problems of the beta version corrected?
Poor battery life, crashes and data loss in the Apple i Cloud synchronization: The first development versions of iOS 9 not yet confident in everyday life. Thus disappeared in one case, Address Book entries from one used with the iOS-9-beta i Cloud account – from inexplicable reason but only of those “Christian” were called. The latest beta versions on the other hand looked at stability, speed and battery life quite already suitable for everyday use. The battery life was here at the level of 8 iOS, partly felt even better.Nevertheless, there were also quite a few in recent versions of sites. Thus, the system operates in total bases, also occasional crashes do occur. One can only hope that this will be corrected in the final version. Apple itself listed as last even several known shortcomings on. After all: Apple Music works under iOS 9, since Public Beta 3 is also the access to furnished private shares under their own Apple ID again possible.
