11. Go back to album view
When viewing a photo in an album, swipe down to return to the album view. This is much quicker and simpler than tapping the back arrow in the top left corner.
12. Quickly navigate through photos
Slide your finger across the thumbnail slider at the bottom of a single photo view to scrub through a series of images.
13. Hide multiple images
Select a series of images, then tap Share > Hide.
14. Change video recording resolution
- Tap Settings
- Scroll down and click Photos & Camera
- Scroll down to Camera and you will see Record Video with the current format opposite
- Click the setting and select from the options 720p HD at 30fps, 1080p HD at 30 or 60fps.
Similar options appear for Slo-mo video, including 720p at 120fps or 240fps.
15. Zoom into image during video playback
This one’s self-explanatory. Pinch to zoom in or out of a video when it’s playing.
16. Travel times to your next meeting
The Calendar app can now tell you when to leave for your next appointment. When creating a new entry, scroll to Travel Time and switch the toggle on.
17. Using Mail for smarter caller ID
iOS 9 also relies on the data from your Mail app to gather more information about your Contacts. This is an optional feature in Settings, but if activated, you’ll get email address autocomplete suggestions. iOS 9 will even try to guess an unknown number on the call screen.
18. Access the iCloud Drive app
Ever wonder what documents you’ve got stored on iCloud? iOS 9 gives you the option to access your iCloud Drive via a new native app. In Settings, just toggle to show the iCloud Drive app on the Home screen to access it. iOS 9 also lets you add an attachment in Mail directly from your iCloud Drive.
19. Access your Wallet from the locked screen
In iOS 9 you’ll be able to fire up the new Wallet app (and Apple Pay) directly from the Home screen, even when the screen in locked. This makes it super easy to use Apple Pay to pay for everyday purchases. Previously you could launch Siri from the locked screen and reply to a message, too.
20. For iPad only: Easy editing of long chunks of text
With iOS 9, you can place two fingers down on the keyboard and it instantly becomes a trackpad, letting you select large chunks of text with one swipe. The new tools on the QuickType bar help you format the text or cut/copy/paste it with one tap. I’ve never thought of the iPad as a viable replacement to my MacBook—until now.
