Apple's iOS 9 arrives, but Watch update delayed by bug

Culture
IOS nine has arrived, but as for as the apple watch software; well Apple says it need a little more time. I'm Bridget Carey this is your CNET update. [MUSIC] Apple has released a new version of the mobile operating system iOS 9. And it gives iPhones and iPads new features like the ability to doodle in your notes, get transit directions and maps, but only in some cities. And on newer iPads, you can multitask with two apps open at once. The free update to iOS 9 is available to download inside of your Settings app. Apple was supposed to also release an operating system update to the Watch on Wednesday But Apple delayed the update because of a bug. In a statement, Apple says it is taking a bit longer than expected to fix the bug and the WatchOS Two will be released shortly. The update would give watch apps more freedom to tap into the data collected by the sensors. And yes, that means watch apps would be more useful. As for iOS 9, you'll find small improvements in battery life with the Settings to help you manage which apps are draining your power. There's also the Low Power Mode in case your phone is hanging on to its last drop of juice You'll find a news app that pulls in top stories picked by Apple editors but you can also set what types of stories you want to read. Search is better and you can ask Siri to pull up specific types of photos like Photos taken last week. Or if you're writing about an email and you can't finish it just yet, ask Siri to remind you about it later. When you select photos, you can select several at once by tapping and dragging your finger across to highlight a selection. It makes deleting faster. In video settings you can choose to record a different Frame rates if you wanna save space. The keyboard display's lowercase letters on the keys can now show when you don't have the caps lock on. If you're jumping between apps, there's now a back button that now takes you back to the last screen you were looking at So you don't need to keep pressing that home button, and you can doodle on an image attachment sent through an email. Just open the message tap and hold the image, and select mark up and reply to start drawing. This looks to be a solid update, but you may want to wait a day or two to download in case there are any major bugs discovered, and sometimes there are. You can let others be the guinea pig first. And be sure to backup files before downloading the upgrade in case anything goes wrong in the installation. And there's some good news for AT&T customers still hanging on to old unlimited data plans after all these years. You won't be slowed down now after going over 5 gigs of data a month. Now, AT&T gives you 20 gigs of data to use before slowing down your speed in high demand areas. The FCC hit at&t with $100 million fine in June for slowing down unlimited customers to a crawl after they used 5 gigs because it's not unlimited if there are limits. That's it for this tech news update, you can keep up with all the latest at cnet.com. From our studios on New York, I'm Bridget Carey. [MUSIC]
