Some of Apple’s native apps are very straight to the point and simple, but this is something Apple is looking to improve upon with iOS 9. The Cupertino company has announced that they are improving upon some of their native apps such as Notes, Maps, and News.
The Notes app has always been rather basic and it does what it advertises which is to take notes. However if you were hoping for it to be more feature-rich, iOS 9 will do that. The Notes app, similar to the one on OS X El Capitan, will come with more editing tools, like creating check lists, different font sizes, adding photos, and more.
Apple has also improved upon its Maps app by launching Transit in Maps. This is another rumored feature which has proven to be true and what it does is that it adds transit information such as directions for public transportation like buses, trains, subways, ferries, and more, but whether or not this will be able to hold its own against Google Maps remains to be seen.
Apple has also introduced a new News app. This revamped News app reminds us of apps such as Flipboard where it’s more of a magazine-styled delivery of news as opposed to an RSS feed. The app will feature news and articles that are curated based on your interests. There will be photo galleries, videos, and more, with content from The New York Times, ESPN, Condé Nast, and more.
