Launch of iOS 9, Watch OS 2 and OS X The Captain: doubts solved

Yesterday afternoon’s keynote left us with many new features: iPhone 6s, iPad Pro, new Apple TV… and in the meantime new hardware have blurred a bit the new software that is still very important: OS X El Capitan, iOS 9 and Watch OS 2 are just around the corner.

We have release dates, we have lists of compatible devices, we have the news well defined… What if we summarize all the data that is most requested in order to have a clear idea of what awaits us throughout the remainder of September? Let’s go with it.

Watch OS 2: what’s new

  • Third-party complications in our watches, so that we can see data such as the charge of our electric car or the time of our flight directly by lifting the wrist.
  • New spheres with time-lapses of cities of the world, or with personalized photographs.
  • Time Travel: Go forward or backward in the time of your dial with the Digital Crown to see the calendar or weather forecast among other things.
  • Table Clock Mode: places the Apple Watch horizontally while charging it so that the interface changes to something reminiscent of the classic table alarm clock.
  • Native applications: developers will be able to take advantage of the Apple Watch processor itself, being able to launch native applications faster. In addition, those applications can switch to using all the sensors of the clock in their favor.
  • Extended circles of friends, so that we can create several groups of contacts with which to communicate from the Watch. The drawings can now also be sent in various colors at the same time.
  • Siri will be able to respond to more commands, among other things to start exercising sessions.
  • The new activation lock will require the password for your Apple account to unlock the Apple Watch. This adds more protection in addition to the 4-digit code we have now.

iOS 9: news

  • Notes enriches your format by letting us create task lists, web link sheets or photographs. We can also draw strokes with the Apple Pencil and the iPad Pro.
  • The maps will now have information on public transport in some cities. Little by little this functionality will be extended around the world.
  • There will be a dedicated iCloud Drive application, to access your files from iOS as if we were in the Finder.
  • Mail will have more shortcuts with the gestures of our hand.
  • On the iPhone 6s, 3D touch will allow us to access additional options by pressing with two different levels of pressure.
  • One of the most important: multitasking with two applications, being able to work with two programs in parallel on the iPad Air 2, the iPad mini 4 and the iPad Pro. We can also watch videos from other applications in PIP mode.
  • The keyboard gains functions to be able to move the cursor better and be more compatible with third party keyboards.
  • Siri will be able to obey more commands, inheriting the Apple Watch interface.
  • The Proactive engine will display all kinds of results and suggestions on the search screen.
  • We will improve the battery of our iOS devices with up to one hour more charge.
