If there is one thing that makes Yosemite a striking OS, I would say that it has an evolutionary nature, as it is loaded with many advanced features and exhibits top class performance, which makes it a class apart!
We have been using the iOS 8 for few months now but still we can’t help wondering about what features would be available with iOS 9. Though Apple had included few of the features from Yosemite OS X in its iOS 8 update, we feel that some more advancement in the features would make iOS 9 a great choice. With news sources indicating that the launch and announcement of Apple iOS 9 would be during the month of June this year at the Worldwide Developer Conference or WWDC, we feel that it’s time to make a wish list of the features that we would love to have in this latest iOS by Apple.
Action based push services and Interactive notifications
Yosemite OS X has impressive interactive notifications which means you can react almost immediately as soon as you get a FaceTime video call, message or an email through the notification window immediately by replying or launching video call straight away. Even though the sibling of iOS 9 has a few improved interactive widgets in the home screen, we hope to see much improved action oriented push services that enables you to access it immediately. This would also help us to reply to messages, respond to the likes or request made on Facebook and much more.
iCloud services to store files
Yosemite has a comprehensive iCloud storage that lets users store their iBooks, pictures and even passwords, Wi-Fi logins or numbers of your credit card making it a secure option. Previously, iOS 8 had improved its file syncing ability to prevent the issues of corrupted files and data loss. However, we wish to have iCloud storage for storing photos and pictures. This also brings another wish to have an improved file manager as it would allow us to have a streamlined access to different files and directories using a single platform and eliminate the need to have numerous apps for the same.
If you are an apple user you will definitely agree with me that switching networks is a biggest headache we have faced so far. Being an ardent Apple phone lover, it is very annoying to find poor network status and the complexity involved in switching the network. Hence, we pray that Apple considers this request to make it easy for us to switch between 2G and 3G networks to enjoy uninterrupted service. We make this request because Apple has made sure that changing the network preferences is just a breezy affair in Mavericks.
The virtual assistant of Apple, Siri is helpful but problematic as it sends the voice command you give to Apple’s HQ in order to let the back end servers decode it. This means it will not function when there is no internet connectivity. It would be very helpful if Siri can set alarms, send messages or set alarms when we truly need a helping hand when there is no connectivity.
How about texting your parents with a hands free message, “I will be late for dinner tonight” even if you don’t have a mobile signal? Great isn’t it?
Better battery life
It’s true we yearn for better battery management in the next gen iOS as Mavericks OS X is designed with the application that would let you know how much battery is consumed by different applications you use when you click on the menu with dropdown style. This would help you kill those battery eating apps to save battery life. Hence, it would be really helpful if the iOS 9 would have such a feature included in it as we can easily nab those juice sucking apps and put and end to them to enjoy better battery life.
Enhanced Inter Apps communication
You might have already loved the inter app communication loved by OS X Mavericks. If you are working on your device and if you receive a message, then Mavericks offers you the freedom to click the pop up to respond via the reply button. This means you can reply to any messages you receive directly without having to close the platform you were using earlier. As iOS 8 was much far behind in the intercommunication apps department, we would love to get hold of this Mavericks feature in the upcoming iOS as we need not go back to the app we were working on after tweeting, messaging or attending a phone call.
The wish list that we have conjured above is not just marketing features but useful ones, which would make iOS 9 fully functional. However, we will have wait until this June to know what the reputed maker has in store for us.
So let’s keep our fingers crossed!
