“I think if you do something and it turns out pretty good, then you should go do something else wonderful, not dwell on it for too long. Just figure out what’s next.” – Steve Jobs

A News that seems like a page out of a book of inspirational quotes by Mr. Jobs, Apple has been getting inspired and inspiring people to think more and get more. Apple has been a pioneer in terms of offering the latest and the best in the industry. A name synonymous with innovation and growth, earlier this week, Apple announced the iOS 9 beta release. The version was made available to the registered developers in the past, but Apple has now made iOS 9 beta public. Now, you can upgrade to beta without shelling out $99 (approx. Rs 6,300) for a developer ID. The new version has a range of highlights to grab the public attention. However, one of the pivotal change in beta is that the phone can now automatically detect pictures and bifurcate them in different groups for selfies and screenshots. Many users were facing a task of managing unwanted screenshots and failed selfies in their phones. It seems like the new version has been blessed with automatic intelligence to differentiate between a screenshot & a selfie. iPhones already have their own folders for time-lapse, slo-mo, burst photos and videos. Google Photos also possesses the ability to recognize screenshots, selfies & other folders. However, they achieve via using complicated software programs. Apple’s iOS 9 beta is designed to keep it simple and intelligent, without using any complicated programs.

At the WWDC 2015, Apple had introduced iOS 9 that comes as a 1.8GB installation size instead of a whopping 4.6GB of iOS 8. Here are some highlights of the new mobile OS. At the event, the new version of OS X was christened OS X El Capitan, which is also available to public as a beta version. Here’s a glance at some of the features in the new Operating System. Due to its low installation size, it can easily combat storage issues, which were not prevalent in the previous versions. The new version also scores big on compatibility. It will be supported on phones from iPhone 4S to iPhone 6 Plus; and tablets such as iPad Air, iPad Air 2, iPad 2, iPad 3rd gen, iPad 4th gen, iPad mini, iPad mini 2, iPad mini 3 as well as the 5th gen iPod Touch. Along with providing a better battery life, the new version also comes with a proactive assistant to compete with Google Now. Apple has also bid adieu to the Newsstand & they have incorporated the News App. News app that replaces Newsstand is one of the major iOS 9 announcements that basically aggregates news based on your interests, in a rich multimedia format.
