WHY THIS MATTERS

Pogue updated to iOS 9. Here’s why. -Cynthia Wisehart

The new iOS version looks and feels just the same as before, and everything’s in the same places; nothing new will confuse you. But don’t let appearances fool you; Apple’s software plastic surgeons have made hundreds of little tweaks that are intended to make its mobile devices faster, smarter, and more stable. If you want an early look at iOS 9, you’ll be able to download the public beta version this week; just understand that it’s not finished and may be buggy. But I’ve already been playing with the beta and thought you might appreciate a guide to what’s new and useful — including, by the way, a slew of new features that Applehasn’t announced publicly. Close the door and cancel your appointments; it’s a very long list. Fortunately, if you squint your eyes a little, you can pretty much fit all of them into six categories: Basics, Apps, Brains, Mail, Camera, and iPad Specials. MORE@YahooTech
