One of the great new features in iOS 9 is called Low Power Mode.

Low Power Mode solves this problem by extending your battery life when you need it the most.
It has been less than a week since the release of the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. One feature of the new phones that users are raving about is 3D Touch. The new 3D Touch display on iPhone 6s and 6s Plus is pressure-sensitive, meaning it can detect the difference between a tap and a harder touch. This provides many new ways to interact with iOS, including accessing app-relevant shortcuts by force-touching the app icon on the home screen. Here is a list of home screen shortcuts for Apple apps that you can utilize with 3D Touch.
Recently, I went on the App Store looking for a good new game to play. As many do, I was scrolling through the Top Charts section of the App Store trying to find something really interesting that looked fun to play.

Monument Valley is an enticing and beautiful puzzle game that is well worth its $3.99 price tag.

While the new content blocking apps for iOS 9 can make your browsing experience less-cluttered and more pleasant, there are some negatives to using these apps. The inclusion of content-blocking apps to the App Store is perhaps the most controversial update Apple has made to their mobile operating system. So controversial, in fact, that Marco Arment, the developer of the Peace ad-blocking app, removed the app from the App Store last week after toping #1 in the top paid apps chart.
iOS 9 brings a wide array of new features, but one of the least-talked about is the ability to block content in Safari. Apps that block ads, trackers, etc. have topped the App Store charts, with four different versions in the top 12 for paid apps. This is the first time Apple has allowed third-party apps to modify content inside Safari, opening the door for developers to create tools to improve the browsing experience for Apple users.
