The Worldwide Developer’s Conference on 8th June, 2015 witnessed a two and a half hour keynote by Apple that has generated a lot of anticipation and excitement for the Apple users. There is a great deal of excitement which is creeping on tech geeks. Apple announced the launch of its 9th version of the Operating System, the iOS 9. Although it will come packed with a lot of new features which will give the users a wonderful Apple experience, there are still a couple of things that it missed out in the latest update. While this was not explicitly announced at the WWDC 2015, they were not mentioned at all, which leads us to believe that the issues still persist. Following are the four major issues that iOS 9 has failed to resolve:
1. Apple still collects cache data which can’t be gotten rid of.
Irrespective of how much space we have, we always want more. The information we carry on our phone is invaluable and extensive. However, Apple tends to collect a massive amount of cache data on the device which is nearly impossible to get rid of. This uses up a lot of space and puts the users through a lot of pain of deleting and reinstalling certain apps. the entire process is very time consuming and a slower one and therefore is much hated by most of the apple users. iOS 9 will show no improvement in getting rid of this painful cache.
2. Notifications will still be unorganized.
Apple users receive all their notification in a haphazard and unorganized manner. So if you would like to see the latest notification you have received, you will have to patiently scroll through all the Email and other notifications before you can get to the one you want to check immediately. It would be a good improvement if Apple would show notification chronologically. Chronological arrangements of notifications can help to make the viewers feel less hassled and orderly. However, iOS 9 is not said to have this feature as yet.
3. Extensions are still difficult to find.
One of the coolest features of iOS 8 was the Extensions which allowed apps to share data with each other, thereby making them more useful. However practically and in reality, these extensions are really difficult to find. Although an alternative to this was proposed by Federico Viticii, iOS 9 showed no improvement in this matter.
4. Support for third-party keyboards still needs to worked on.
Apple has shown inconsistency in supporting third-party keyboards for iOS. These keyboards lacked the key features of iOS that make them more beneficial for the user. Custom keyboards cannot access Siri’s speech or access autocorrect dictionary of the device. It was hoped that iOS 9 will improve on providing better support and compatibility for third-party keyboards. However, unfortunately that did not happen.
These are certain issues which apple users were expecting to be fixed and so were the high end expectations from iOS 9. Even though these four issues remain unfixed, there are still many features which are too good to be true.
