Expect your iPhone, iPad, and iPod to be more secure, able to multitask better, and do much more sooner than later.
Apple tirelessly works to bring consumers the newest operating system for it’s flagship mobile devices, iOS 9. According to ZDNet, Apple is approximately a month away from releasing the newest OS to consumers.
With all of the features brought to consumers from iOS 8, one of the most anticipated features is how multitasking functions on different devices, such as the iPad Air.
Currently, multitasking is handled by double tapping on the devices home button, allowing users to switch between the two windows. The improvement from the new OS would allow two windows to be open simultaneously on the main screen, with information from either window able to be shared back and forth between the two.
Android devices, notoriously the Note series of devices from Samsung, have had this feature for quite some time. Bringing this to the Apples line of products would improve their standing amongst other competitors and also bring them in line with what consumers have been asking for quite some time now.
Security has also seen a great improvement. Along with the fix that went out with updates for iOS 8 that fixed the crashing string of text that could be sent to phones and other devices, the lock security for the phone looks to be more complex, even on the surface.
Instead of a simple 4 digit code for unlocking the phone, a new 6 digit passcode will be required to unlock the phone and access it.
Along with this, in development currently for the Mac computers is the El Capitan 10.11 OSX, which is currently in its beta phase.
Release date for the OSX update for computers has not been announced.
