Apple unveils iOS 9

As expected, Apple today unveiled iOS 9 during its WWDC 2015 keynote. Following a brief intro by Tim Cook, Craig Federighi used the event to detail several significant features coming to iOS that will land in hands of consumers when iOS 9 is rolled out later this year. Read on for our ongoing coverage of this important announcement event.

In iOS 9, Apple is focusing on Intelligence, apps, iPad features and more. As expected, Siri was overhauled with a new interface and new name, Proactive Assistant. The proactivity will be extended throughout the operating system, reminding owners to leave early to an appointment due to heavy traffic, for example. Siri also will tap into additional third-party sources via a new API. iPhone owners searching for music can pull results from iTunes, Spotify and more.

iOS 9 makes the entire operating system smarter, enhances the apps you use most, and integrates with iPad in remarkable ways.

Here's what's new for now:

● Siri is up to 40% faster and 40% more accurate.
● Now there are even more topics you can ask Siri about.

● Your device can now anticipate what you want to do next based on your location, the time, what app you have open, or what you’re connected to. For example, plug in your headphones or connect to your car, and iPhone can suggest a recent playlist or audiobook.

If you add a location to an event in Calendar, iPhone will suggest when you should leave.

● With iOS 9, you can search for more — including sports schedules, Netflix movies, and information inside apps.

● When you grab your iPhone in the morning, it can suggest apps to open based on your daily routines.

● If you want to be reminded of something you saw in Safari, your device can remind you to read that page.

Apple Pay
Apple also update Apple Pay with expanded support that include a Square reader with integrated Apple Pay.

Spotlight gets smarter in iOS 9

Spotlight search has been completely redesigned for iOS 9, and it brings with it a new interface, a new search API, deep linking to search results, and more. With an interface that harkens back to the pre-iOS 7 days, search is now a powerful new tool in iOS.

One of the most impressive things about the new search interface is its ability to deep link into the apps that you have installed on your phone. When tapping on one of the app links provided in the search interface, you’ll be taken directly into the respective apps, and not just to the app’s main interface, but deep into the location in the app that relates to the specific search result.
