First details of Apple’s next iOS version leaked show a new look Siri which matches Apple smartwatch
Apple will be announcing the newest version of its mobile operating system, iOS 9, at WWDC on June 8 according the Apple tracking website 9to5Mac.
At the Worldwide Developers Conference, Apple reveals the new software features it plans to bring to iPhones, iPads, and MacBooks and this year it is not going to be any different. 9to5Mac’s Mark Gurman claims have some details what to expect from Apple’s next big iPhone update.
According to his report, the iOS 9 will not be a game changer of any sort but will have some tweaks and new features plus the usual security updates.
Redesigned Siri : According to Gurman, iOS 9 will feature a new and improved Siri which will be similar to the Siri on Apple watch. The Siri on the Apple watch is much more colourful than it is on iPhone and iPad.
iOS will also have new wallpapers and colour themes and will come in a blue and green colour scheme by default.
A relaunched Beats Music Streaming service is also expected to be a big announcement at WWDC but some rumours suggest the software isn’t ready just yet.
Gurman had reported in February that Apple wont go in for a big visual change in the iOS 9. Instead Apple is focussing on overall improvements to stability and performance. So users can expect a stable iPhone and iPad. Apple will also try to keep the size of the update manageable so that it’s easier for users to actually install the update. This is because with iOS update, many iPhone and iPad owners complained that it required too much of space.
According to sources iOS 9 will be rolled out in fall this year after the iPhone 6s is released. In the meantime Apple engineers are readying the iOS 8.4 update which will bring security, stability and a redesigned Music app to the iPhone and iPad.
