New to iOS 9 is Wi-Fi Assist. When using Wi-Fi, if your connection is unreliable, your phone will automatically boost your signal using Cellular data. This can be extremely helpful and save you a trip to Settings; however, if you’re watching your data usage, there’s an easy way to turn Wi-Fi Assist off.

The Notes app on the iPhone and iPad is a surprisingly useful, multi-functional tool. Whether you want to manage a project, set yourself weekly goals, or create a grocery list you won’t forget at home, it’s easy and efficient. You can add links, insert photos, include sketches, create checkable to-do lists, collaborate with others on a shared note, lock your notes for extra privacy, and more. You can see all our Notes app how-tos here.  But first, let's get started with the most basic function of the Notes app: creating to-do lists.

In iOS 8, Spotlight was capable of searching within the data of your device; meaning, you were limited to searching information such as the location of an app, email, or song. Now, Spotlight is its own Search engine, News center, and Nearby locator, and includes Siri suggestions. We're going to take a quick tour of just what you can do with Spotlight in iOS 9.

Not all streaming services are created equal. With the release of Apple Music, listeners quickly realized there were no quality control options. The difference, until now, was automatic: you heard higher quality sound when streaming music over a Wi-Fi connection than when streaming across cellular data. With iOS 9, Apple is letting you decide for yourself whether better music quality is worth increasing your cellular data usage or not.

Before iOS 9, sharing Bluetooth devices with more than one iPhone was a hassle. You had to either disable Bluetooth on your device or select Forget this Device in settings; both options were roundabout ways to switch the connected iPhone for another. Now, there's a simple way to temporarily disconnect your iPhone from a Bluetooth device.

You can easily select text on iPad or iPhone by turning your keyboard into a trackpad. This is available on iPads running at least iOS 9 and iPhones running iOS 10. Before, when selecting text, there were multiple steps and your vision was obstructed by your own finger. Now you can press into your keyboard, turn it into a trackpad, and easily move your finger to select text or place the cursor in another place for easy editing. Here’s how to easily select text on iPad or iPhone.

One of the smaller changes with iOS 9 is the appearance of the keyboard when using the Shift key. Before, the keys were uppercase in appearance and the highlighted shift key was the only way to know you were typing in uppercase. With the update, the keys are lowercase except when Shift is active: the entire keyboard changes to uppercase. This can make it easier to know which case you're typing in; however, if you prefer the previous set-up, there's a simple Settings change to turn the lowercase keys off.

Notes receives my award for most improved app of the iOS 9 update. One of the big upgrades is the Sketch feature. Now, Notes combines text, sketch, picture, and sharing to give you many note-taking options. With three different "marker" tips, a ruler, eraser, and color easel, it's a pretty basic sketch application, but it's effective and easily combined with text or images.

In the days of iOS 8, we had arrows leading from photos to album view. While the navigation arrow is still there, now, there’s an easier way. If you’re viewing a single photo, with one swipe of the finger you can return to viewing the album.

This one isn’t so much of a tip as it is a reason to rejoice. Before iOS 9, the gray highlighted shift key was the only way to know whether you were typing a capital or lowercase letter. Many users found this confusing and it interferred with third-party keyboard apps. No more!

One of the many upgrades in iOS 9 is the Notes app. Now, you can do things such as draw using your finger and add photo. It's a whole new app. One of the changes is the ability to share websites to your notes. For example, if you find an article that is relevant to a project you're working on, you can share it to one of your notes, add text, and open your note anytime to find the link waiting.
