iOS 9 Features, Leaks and Release Date: What You Need to Know

By FonePaw | May 26 , 2015

It's another busy year for Apple. The dazzling but expensive Apple Watch hit shops last month and a brand new iPhone model – iPhone 6S may be go launching as early as August. In the middle of that you have Apple's World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2015 in June. Since Apple announces upcoming versions of iOS during keynotes at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) every year, iOS 9 is on the way. What we can expect from iOS 9?

iOS 9


Apple iOS 9 is Expected to Support Older Devices
Citing sources, the 9To5Mac reports that Apple is working to make iOS 9 more compatible with devices that are using the company's old A5 processor, which will include iPhone 4s and the original iPad mini.


New Typeface Similar to Apple Watch
Apple is going to change the system font used by iOS 9 to San Francisco, the same font as used by the Apple Watch.


In last year's WWDC, Apple introduced the HomeKit, which allows users to configure, control and communicate with smart home devices. What is expected to be included in iOS 9 is a new Home app, which will allow iOS users to manage their HomeKit gear.


Security Upgrades – Rootless, iCloud Drive + Trusted Wi-Fi
Apple may make great security improvements in iOS 9. A major new initiative called "Rootless," re-architected Apple apps with iCloud Drive file encryption, and a new feature called “Trusted Wi-Fi” are all heard. Insiders claim that "Rootless" will largely prevent jailbreaking activities and it will also improve protection against malware and the security of the private data of users.


iOS 9 Interface, Speed and Stability
Unless you're interested in every single possible upgrade of the new operating system could offer, you may want to skip this paragraph. Yes, the same as before, it is always said that Apple is making huge efforts to improve stability and increase speed. We have experienced that iOS 8 ate chunk of space and drained battery something horrid. Good wishes for iOS 9!


What will be the iOS 9 Release Date?
It is expected iOS 9 will be unveiled on the annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), but it won’t be available for consumers until the release of the next iteration of iPhones (likely around August)
