iOS 9 on iPhone 6: Features and Fixes

Apple’s iOS 9 software update is rumored to focus on stability improvements following the wave of criticism that hit Apple’s latest operating systems, iOS 8 and Yosemite. A recent report revealed that Apple’s latest mobile OS release isn’t as stable as Google’s, though Google’s Lollipop isn’t as widely used as iOS 8, of course.

Now, ZDNet has put together a list of iOS 8 annoyances that Apple could consider fixing in order to further improve the overall iPhone and iPad experience.

One of the most obvious “problems” with iOS is storage, especially when it comes to updating older devices to a new version. Apple could improve the way users can manage storage on their devices in iOS 9, and make it easier for them to free up space.

The publication also says that iOS 9 should come with even better privacy settings — having them turned on from the get-go — and with built-in two-factor authentication.

Other iOS 9 “fixes” ZDNet proposes include a “better, faster camera app,” a battery saving mode, guest mode access on iPad and iPhone, Apple Pay support for more regions (at least for iPhone 6 and other devices that can support the payments feature), and the options for users of choosing default apps for certain activities and customizing the Control Center.

Stability improvements and fixes for Wi-Fi and Bluetooth problems are also on the list of things Apple should consider for iOS 9, according to the publication.
