iOS 9 iPhone 6 Hidden Features

Apple on Monday unveiled iOS 9, OS X El Capitan, WatchOS 2 and Apple Music during a lengthy WWDC 2015 keynote. As long as the keynote was, however, the company wasn’t able to introduce and demo tons of new features for each operating system, including iOS 9, leaving many of them to be discovered by developers.

Though they were missing from Apple’s presentation, the company did reveal more than 30 hidden iOS 9 features that’ll be available to users and developers later this year.
