If you have an iPad or iPhone that is upgradeable to iOS 9, today is the day to check for the software update. The same applies if you are lucky enough to own an Apple Watch, version 2 of the firmware arrives today allowing apps to be run on the Apple Watch.
So which iPhones and iPads are able to update to iOS 9?
– iPhone – From the iPhone 4S and newer. So that is the iPhone 5, 5C, 5S, 6 and 6 Plus.
– iPad – iPad Mini, Mini 2, Mini 3, iPad Air, iPad Air 2, iPad 2, iPad 3rd Gen, iPad 4th Gen
– iPod Touch – iPod Touch 5th Generation
So what are the features of iOS 9?
Well, head over to Apple to discover everything that is new – http://www.apple.com/uk/ios/whats-new/
I mentioned yesterday the new iCloud storage pricing – https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201238 Click the link to find details of most countries new iCloud storage pricing. Far more reasonable now.
To make life easier if you’re in the UK, the monthly costs are as follows –
– 50 GB: £0.79
– 200 GB: £2.49
– 1 TB: £6.99
Don’t forget you get 5gb free, but that can get swallowed fast by your phones backup and media/photos.
So how do I get the update? If you do nothing it the update will arrive automatically over the next week. If you are impatient, then go to settings and check for an update and download as required.
