Soon, iOS users are going to see a big change with Apple’s next release: iOS 9. It is a new version for iOS users, but some of its features are look like Android. With the few glimpses of iOS 9, it seems that Apple is inserting the features that have already been used by Android users. Android users will make proud for using the upcoming features of iOS 9 since long. Also, it means that the biggest difference of user experience between iOS and Android is fading away.
Let’s see which Android-like features are going to take place in your iPhone.
1. Proactive Assistant
iOS 9 brings Proactive Assistant to offer you contextual information on emails, calendar, etc. Quite complicated. Let’s simplify it with example. Suppose you have scheduled a meeting in your calendar, the system reminds you for the meeting a few hours ago. If you receive an email of any event taking place, the system will alerts you for the same.
Google Now assistant offers similar feature.
2. Low Power Mode
Low power mode extends the life of your iPhone’s battery power for up to 3 hours. Don’t considered this as a good news because this system will reduce the performance and network related activities, disables email fetching, changes the effects of animated wallpapers, etc.
Popular brands like Samsung and Sony have been including the same feature since years.
3. Split View
iOS users are curiously waiting for a feature that enables them to work on two apps simultaneously. Split View will soon put an end to users’ waiting by bring the same feature.
I have seen an ad of Samsung smartphone where this feature has been promoted.
4. Picture in Picture
With this feature, you can see videos while working on apps.
It’s been years for Samsung releasing the same feature.
5. News App
Apple has replaced Newsstand app with News app. Not only the name, but some features are also changed. By now, iOS users will receive personalised content from various publishers just like Google’s Newsstand. To make News app more attractive, Apple has inserted transition effects and multimedia content.
6. Enhanced Search
Siri enhances searching ability with iOS 9 by offering a huge criteria of search topics, more answers, suggestions on nearby places, often used apps, local news, etc.
With Google Now and Google Search, you will or you must have seen a large part of above mentioned features.
7. Keyboard Shortcuts
Finally, the most awaited keys for cut, copy, paste, add files, photo and text formatting are coming with iOS 9. Android users are already enjoying the same features since the release of Android smartphones.
8. Transit Directions
Absence of transit directions in Apple maps was a biggest disappointment among users. iOS 9 ends up this disappointment by bringing transit directions to Apple maps. Again, Google maps possess same feature.
iOS 9 brings more unexpected features that add to your efficiency and the features that you are waiting for since long.
