Apple iOS 9 Features Leak

3 new iOS 9 features were just revealed in a huge new leak

3 new iOS 9 features were just revealed in a huge new leak

9to5Mac’s Mark Gurman has been all over iOS 9 leaks this week and he’s back with a new report today that outlines more features the new software will deliver. In the preface to his article, Gurman makes clear that this is not going to be the most exciting iOS release. In fact, he says that Apple is putting most of its work into adding stability improvements for the platform, which went through several less-than-stellar releases with iOS 7 and iOS 8. That said, he did highlight three features we can expect to see at WWDC this year. More →

iOS 9 Apple Maps

iOS 9 to give Apple Maps a badly needed feature that Google’s had for years

iOS 9 to give Apple Maps a badly needed feature that Google’s had for years

Apple Maps has had its fair share of issues over the years, but one of the most disappointing aspects of the service is its lack of directions for those of us who regularly use transit systems to get around. As a resident of New York City, Apple Maps just isn’t a feasible option for me at the moment (even if it did function properly), but according to 9to5Mac’s Mark Gurman, transit support is finally coming to Apple Maps alongside the iOS 9 update next month.

iMessage Vs BBM

There’s a new BBM for iOS feature that will actually make iMessage users jealous

There’s a new BBM for iOS feature that will actually make iMessage users jealous

True story: a little over a year ago, a friend of mine asked me to help him pick out an Android phone because he was tired of his iPhone. For a few hours spread out over the course of a week, we chatted off and on about what he didn’t like about the iPhone and what he was looking for in a new phone. We finally landed on the HTC One, and he went out and bought one the day his contract was up. But then just three days later, he switched back to his iPhone.

“I can’t live life as a green bubble,” he told me.

There is indeed something addictive about those little blue bubbles. But truth be told, iMessage is hardly a full-featured messaging platform. Its feature set is barebones at best, and now there’s a new feature in the BBM for iOS beta app that iMessage users will be jealous of. More →
