Although iOS9 doesn’t look drastically different from iOS8, some of its new features will most likely affect the way users behave within their device. This updated iOS will also bring new opportunities to app developers that will need to adapt their app marketing strategy accordingly.
iOS9 is already available for developers on beta while public beta will follow in July. It will then be rolled out to the general public this fall. Even iPhone 4S and iPad 2 will benefit from iOS9.
This year, Apple has focused on improving its devices’ intelligence and proactivity. A lot of improvements were therefore made to Siri, Search, Apple Pay, Maps, etc. The whole point is to get closer to the device’s user by learning about his habits and preferences in order to act accordingly.
