Apple is going to hold its prestigious Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2015 event in June and the Cupertino tech giant are going to make many new announcements. One of the most prominent updates includes the release of next iOS version, iOS 9, for iPhones and iPads. Apple is expected to make several improvements to its mobile software to get an edge over rival Android.
While most details are under wraps, rumours suggest iOS 9 will mainly focus on stability and performance, Value Walk reports. The new software will address major concerns users faced with iOS 8, along with bug fixes and performance boosters.
Apple's iOS 8 wasn't as successful as expected; the company tried vigorously to fix most issues with smaller updates, but it backfired. For instance, iOS 8.0.1 update disrupted cellular networks and disabled the Touch ID sensor on several devices. Apple followed up on its update cycle with iOS 8.1, 8.2 and so on. The company is currently beta testing the most recent iOS 8.4, which is said to bring an overhauled Music app.
In iOS 9, Apple is also expected to improve individual apps with new features such as bring indoor maps and transit data to its Maps application. Other improvements include a split-screen mode for iPads and deeper integration with CarPlay.
What Else is Expected at WWDC 2015
Upgraded version of iOS mobile software is just a part of the big picture. Apple's main focus will also lie around other things such as Apple TV, Mac OS X 10.11, Beats Music Streaming and new device launches such as the rumoured iPad Pro, new iMac with 21.5-inch 4K and update to the MacBook Pro.
If you are anticipating a new iPhone model at the WWDC 2015, you will be disappointed.
Apple will commence the annual Worldwide Developers Conference starting 8 June and run through 12 June, 2015, which is to take place in San Francisco.
