If you're worried that your aging Apple iPhone 4s or Apple iPad mini won't be able to handle iOS 9, have no fear. A report published today says that Apple will be optimizing the next build of its mobile OS for those iPhones and iPads that are now members of AARP. Instead of building one version of iOS 9 and then removing certain features for older models, Apple is now expected to release a "core version" of iOS 9 that would be developed for devices powered by the A5 chipset.Features that work properly with the core version of iOS 9 would be enabled on older models one-by-one. This will allow some older iPhone models to receive iOS 9 instead of being cut off. Among the new features slated for iOS 9 is the addition of mass transit directions for Apple Maps. In addition, Apple is reportedly replacing the Helvetica Neue font currently used on iOSwith the San Francisco font found on the Apple Watch. Helvetica Neue debuted in 2013 with iOS 7.Apple is also said to be testing a feature … [Read more...] about Apple building a version of iOS 9 for older models?

The update to iOS 9.3 which started yesterday, brought some great new features to iPhone users such as Night Shift. This adjusts the color temperature on the screen at night in order to remove the blue colors that are said to cause eye fatigue and insomnia. Another new feature allows you to securely store passwords, PIN codes and anything you write in the Notes app. You can set up the app to be password protected, or require fingerprint verification using Touch ID.Another new feature that came with the iOS update enables AT&T subscribers sporting a compatible iPhone, to use International Wi-Fi calling. Customers using this feature will be charged the regular price for the call. Texts can also be sent through Wi-Fi calling and count the same as a regular text message. Those using the feature are usually in an area where cell reception is poor. Using Wi-Fi calling allows them to use the Wi-Fi hotspot in place of the cellular pipeline to make calls and send texts.Wi-Fi calling is … [Read more...] about AT&T’s iPhone customers gain International Wi-Fi calling feature with iOS 9.3 update

All the improvements I like from 7.1 I already have thought Cydia. 7. suneeboy (Posts: 201; Member since: 02 Oct 2012) I hear you. If you are jailbroken its probably not worth it. But its a must for people on stock. It's flying now. 11. Mxyzptlk (unregistered) I think Cydia is like a beta for features apple will introduce later. I can understand wanting to keep jailbreak, but the security and stability alone is worth updating. 12.

There's no doubt that we will take a sneak peek at iOS 10 in less than a week's time. Well, by "arriving" we mean that we will most certainly get a sneak peek at the next version of iOS, but it probably won't be freely available by September. We might get the chance to try out a public beta, though - just like last year with iOS 9! So, there's a milestone update on the horizon, but do we have an idea of what features will get introduced alongside? As usual with anything Apple -related, we can only speculate. And boy, are we good at speculating about features! Ranging from a dark theme to more flexible content sharing, we have an extensive wishlist about iOS 10, but let's be real - only a few of these are likely to get introduced. What to do then? Well, we will round up some of the more likely software novelties that will arrive with iOS 10. iOS 10: 10 expected new features iOS 10: 10 expected new features 1.
