New hidden features inside iOS 9

Tech Industry
Hey Brian! I'm here to fix up your makeup. Oh hey, what's up Alicia? Not much. You know make me look good like you do. Okay? Of course. Of course. Oh my! Oh my god! Is that. Is that the Apple Pencil in your pocket? Wait, what? No. It actually hasn't gone on sale yet. Oh! Yeah. Huh? I thought it looked a little skinny. [BLANK_AUDIO] [MUSIC] What's good? Brian Tong here, and welcome to theapplebyte for everything good and bad inside the world of Apple. iOS 9 is finally here. And this show should look exactly like it did on iOS 8. Now some people had trouble doing the update over the air, while doing it just through a Mac was just fine. But that's how it is on launch, we're used to that by now. All right, you've seen most of the major updates, but there's also a few more subtle ones that you have to dig for. For example, in the Settings under Battery, there's an option for you to put the phone in low power mode. You can also see which apps are using the most juice. And even more helpful, the notifications pull down should use the battery status of your iPhone, and Apple watch. You have one. There's a Search Bar on top of your Settings to find whatever you want inside the Siri Settings, you can search on, hey Siri. Yup, I just want to give people whose phones set off a second and get back to the show. Because I know what happens when I say Hey Siri. Now you can double tap on the lock screen and instantly pull up Apple Pay, when you hit caps lock key on the keyboard, the actual letters all change so you know, and the whole reason why iOS 9 is worth the upgrade on your phone, a dedicated folder for selfies. See, 343 selfies must be bug they're working on. Thanks Apple. Now there's obviously plenty more than we know about the multitasking and picture in picture on the iPad, but these are just some of the subtle changes you can find. Now we got iOS9, but Apple delayed releasing watch OS2 after they found a critical flaw and decided to fix it instead of releasing it to the public. Some of you might be bummed, but it's better to be safe than sorry. Plus, how much are you actually using that watch? I kid. Now Apple said they will release it shortly, but gave no official date. And iTunes also gets an update to 12.3 with some bug fixes. But the biggest improvement is two-factor authentication when logging into the iTunes store, which is probably a good idea to set up when you're purchasing movies like The Notebook. [SCREAMS] Damn, my hand is slipping. Okay, fine, I'll go out with you. Don't do me any favors. No, I want to! Say it again. I want to go out with you! Alright, alright, we'll go out. Still, arguably the greatest love story of all time. Now the Apple TV has huge potential with apps and games and support for AmFi controllers is big for gaming. But developers won't be happy after the big A delivers the old switcheroo this week, reversing their stance, and now saying games cannot exclusively require the use of third party controllers, and must Also support the included Siri remote. Let's see, would you rather play games on this or this? Really? The Siri remote is a big improvement from the last one, but this requirement takes out the complexity of games and restricts them To this. I'm not a fan of this, and devs can't be either, and this one's a no brainer, bad Apple. [SOUND] And in a story that I just couldn't believe, AT&T, the big blue ball, has changed the rules for customers on their grandfathered unlimited data plan. AT&T will throttle unlimited data users once they hit five gigs in a month. But they will now increase that amount to 22 gigs, once they're in a congested area like heavily populated cities. That's over four times the data. I still can't believe it, and that is as sweet as apple pie. Mm. Or apple pie. Now this story might be a big deal, or it might be a small one. But Apple is planning to reopen its company store at one Infinite Loop this Saturday, after closing it back in June. Jony Ive now has responsibility for all aspects of design including the retail store, so it will be interesting to see if it's a preview of how Apple retail might look moving forward. And really, what kind of changes are in store. All right we love hearing your feedback and a lot of you were surprised by how many bad apples were in last week's show even though I called it one of their best keynotes. Now Kenneth Martin said, too many bad apples bruh. But see I still missed a few that you the Apple Byters wanted me to know about. Randiel Rodriguez said, you should have given them the fourth bad apple for the ridiculous price of the iPad Pro. Aah. Zach Oxley on Twitter used the hashtag #transprarentcrew #BadApple. Aah! Alex Hatfield writes, you forgot to mention the $350 Gold Apple Watch. No, I didn't forget. It just wasn't that important. Now Smital Lunawat says, you zoomed on the ex-price of iPhone 6. You know what that is? A bad apple. [SOUND] And yes, MINZU Gaming said Justin Bieber. Bad apple. [SOUND] Fine. That was totally justified and I hope you're all happy now. Alright, that's going to do it for this week's show. Email me at theapplebyte@cnet.com or tweet me @briantong. Thanks so much for watching and we'll catch y'all next time for The Byte of the Apple.
