The slide over feature lets you reply to the message from your loved one while you are browsing through a shopping website; without closing the shopping app and then you can just slide over the messenger and continue shopping.

2). Split View: The split view feature on your iPad Air 2 lets you open two apps and keep them active at the same time.

  • QuickType

You get a new shortcut bar, new way to select text with a few multi-touch gestures as well as new convenient editing tools.


  • Siri

Now, Siri has become a lot smarter in multiple ways. It searches a wider range of topics. You can ask Siri to show you photos you clicked at someone’s birthday. It helps you search photos as per the date, location or name of the album; and it finds exactly what you were looking for delivering more accurately and faster. Also, it gives suggestion even before you ask for it. In short, it powers more intelligent search now. If you have to stop in the mid of reading a mail, you can ask Siri to remind you to read it in the night. You can ask Siri to remind you to do something when you go to car!

  • Search

The search screen has become even more intelligent showing you contacts, apps, places nearby and news.

1). Relevant People: This will show you the contacts with whom you talk the most, to whom you have recently talked or to whom you are most likely to talk (the ones whom have scheduled to meet next).

2). Suggested apps: From your daily routines, it comes to know what you are most likely to use. For example: if you read news everyday first thing in the morning, it will show the ‘News’ app in the list of suggested apps in the morning when you wake up.

3). Places nearby: You can get the list of categories of places nearby like shopping, food and drink, fun and more.

4). In the news: It detects your location and shows you the local news which are trending in the place where you are.

1). Longer battery life: More efficient apps now use lesser battery, making it available to you for other things which you do with your iPhone. The new lower power mode helps you even more to extend your battery life.

2). Faster and more responsive: As you know, overall the performance is improved, as apps make the effective and efficient use of the CPU and GPU. It provides faster scrolling, quicker email and messages, smoother animations and multitasking features on iPad, to name a few.

3). Improved security: iOS 9 strengthens the passcode of your device, so that the unauthorized people cannot access your Apple ID account, making it easier for you, but harder for other to access our personal account.
