Wikipedia gets a makeover, 3D Touch support, and Spotlight support

Wikipedia has released a major update to its app for iPhone and iPad, introducing a brand new look, along with support for 3D Touch on the iPhone 6s, and Spotlight search in iOS 9. Additionally, the app has added basic support for the screen resolution of the iPad Pro, though it doesn't yet support Split View or Slide Over multitasking.
