Along with enhancements for Maps, security, and performance, iOS 9 is also said to contain small but important changes to usability, including support for Force Touch on the as-yet-unannounced iPhone 6s.
Reports of some of the major new features in iOS 9 have already surfaced, but now we might have a better idea of what some of the smaller tweaks could be. One of the notable updates appears to be the addition of Force Touch compatibility, apparently to go along with the release of the iPhone 6s later this year, according to 9to5Mac:
Additionally, Force Touch on the iPhone will offer similar functionality to the Force Touch Trackpads built into new Retina MacBooks and Retina MacBook Pros. Force Touch will be integrated into Maps to drop new pins, into media players for pressure-sensitive scrolling, into the Calendar for adding new events, and across the system for quickly looking up word definitions, according to sources who have used Force Touch on prototype versions of the "iPhone 6S." However, as Force Touch is tied into new and unannounced hardware, it's unlikely that the support will be announced at WWDC.
Apple is also reportedly working on an updated keyboard for iOS 9. Among the possible changes are more editing tools for the portrait keyboard and better accessibility, along with a redesigned shift key. Messages might also see a small update, with group thread and per-contact read receipts said to be on the agenda.
Finally, going along with recent reports, Apple is said to be readying an expansion of Apple Pay into Canada with iOS 9, though unless Apple has the deals in place, it's unlikely this will be announced at WWDC 2015.
We expect get the full rundown of new features in iOS 9 from Apple during the WWDC keynote, taking place in just under two weeks. You can check out the full report at the link below.
