Apple has released the third version of iOS 9 to the public, as it continues to tweak its upcoming software update to iOS devices.
While iOS 9 packs a host of new features, like transit directions in maps, the update is focused on delivering a smoother, faster experience on Apple's mobile devices. But the new wallpapers stand as the most notable addition to this slightly improved pre-release version of Apple's upcoming software update.
And they're flat-out gorgeous. One of them even depicts Jupiter as one of its moons fly by.
This beta update brought a number of other small changes and improvements. Mashable noticed the operating system is running much more smoothly. The new News app, for example, loads more quickly and no longer crashes abruptly. We've started noticing large, prominent ads while scrolling the "For You" section, as well as suggestions for what other news you might like.
There are now regulatory notices under "General" in the Settings app. The shift and delete keys on the default keyboard seem to have a stronger outline and the shuffle songs symbol is now more prominently featured in the Music app.
It's not all good though. An odd but innocuous bug is leaving the last slot under "suggested apps" empty, as you can see below.
As always, make a backup of your device before installing. It's getting smoother, but it's still a beta, so you never know what might happen if something goes wrong.
iOS 9 is a much bigger release for the iPad than for the iPhone. If you have an the iPad Air 2, you'll be able to use two apps side-by-side, a first on iOS. Another feature coming to all iPads lets you slide one app in from the side for quick access. Both iPhone and iPad will gain a smarter Siri able to take actions based on context, more battery life, and a revamped Notes app where you can sketch, and save documents and websites.
iOS 9 will launch in the fall, and will be compatible with the iPhone 4S and up, and the iPad 2 and up. You can also get it on the fifth and sixth generation iPod touches.
Generally, it is unnecessary to do a lot of maintenance for iPhone. But various of apps as well as the gigabytes of cache files fill up limited hard drive quickly. Uninstalling some outdated or useless applications directly is enough to fix? NO! There are tons of caches that are much tightly packed away. MacCare will give you a best solution of improving iOS device performace, scanning every file, detecting all junks and freeing up space completely and securely!
