After months of speculation, rumors and testing, Apple's iOS 9 became available for download on September 16, 2015. With every fall comes a new Apple operating system that promises updated and better experiences for those who own devices such as the iPhone, iPad and the iPod Touch. Every new iOS also leads to feelings of frustration among customers who, for one reason or another, are unable to download or use the new iOS, and iOS 9 was not immune to such problems. Those who have been able to play around with iOS 9 for even a small amount of time have probably already noticed some much-needed improvements to their Apple devices, as well as little things that could make a big difference.
The first thing you may immediately notice upon having just the option of downloading iOS 9 is that you may not have to completely reformat your device due to the size of the download. Download sizes of updated operating systems have, in the past, infuriated Apple users for years. Customers have found themselves struggling to determine which apps were worthy of being kept on a device and which were expendable, all because the latest iOS file was larger than the size of a game save found on consoles such as the Xbox 360. That should not be as big a problem for Apple users with iOS 9.
Another nice feature is that iOS 9 is available to Apple devices that were first compatible with iOS 8, so those of you who have not yet purchased a current generation iPhone or iPad may find that you are still in luck. Have you yearned for picture-in-picture mode? You may get your wish depending on which iPad you own. Apple users who have considered making the switch over to another brand because of the battery lives of their current products should also be happy with what they find in iOS 9, especially those of you who carry a portable charger around for your iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus.

1 iOS 9 Has a New “News” App
The newspaper industry dies more and more with each year and with each advancement that allows us to get updated news every hour in the palms of our hands. Jefferson Graham of USA Today wrote about a new experience with iOS 9 that will make physical newspapers even more obsolete than ever. The “News” app blows away the “Newstand” app found on older operating systems, providing users with stories and videos that are promised to not drastically slow your device. Best of all is that websites that are blocked by a paywall still offer free content in the “News” app that's not available via “Newstand.”
