Okay, I’ll admit it. I miss my iPhone. My iPhone’s screen met its maker, my driveway, last December. I went to the store and replaced my iPhone with a completely new brand. I am learning now, that this was a huge mistake. Hopefully this coming December, I can trade in my current phone for an iPhone. It should be a pretty easy switch with the new “Move to iOS” app that Apple created for the Google Play store!
A new application introduced with iOS 9 is the Apple News app. I think this is a great idea for an app, however, I do not think it will provide us with all of the stories that news organizations are putting on the internet. For example, the app Flipboard is popular among users for the same reasons. Flipboard allows one to follow topics and stories that he or she wants to read about. As I personalized my Flipboard, I realized that I did not see posts from news organizations such as an ABC, CBS, or NBC affiliate. I see it being popular with users who are interested in specific topics such as sports or politics.
There are many new features in a iOS 9 that users should be excited about. New multitasking abilities for the iPad, new security features and a more intelligent Siri. iOS 9 will surely enhance user’s experience with their iDevices.
Original blog post from Zuhayr Tahir:
iOS 9 is a pretty decent update. It provides a new font and some other novelty improvements, but the biggest add on would have to be the introduction of News.
News is a content recommendation app that will appear on the home screen of any iPhone user when they download the new update. Why is this a big deal? Because the news organizations that are connected with Apple’s News will be exposed to an audience that numbers in the millions.
But what does someone think of when it comes to news? Politics? Sports? Entertainment? How about all of the above.
When a user first opens Apple’s News they will be given the option to follow numerous news outlets that can relate to anything that has to do with current events. Personally for me, I’m really into sports, so I followed anything and everything sports related.
So if you’ve got an Apple product, feel free to download iOS 9 and check out the new News app! It’s a great way to keep up to date on anything that interests you.
