Apple leaves many Easter eggs in every version of its operating systems. Most of these fun elements are delibreate, but some can be credited to unintentional bugs.

Let us take a look at the three big iPad only features in iOS 9. Read more
We twiddled our toes, paced up and down eagerly, wore out the carpet, drove our friends and families up the wall with predictions and speculations … all while waiting for the iOS 9 to be released.
Our obsession finally paid off yesterday as we obediently updated our operating system the minute iOS 9 was launched. And then we spent the best part of the night taking it for a test drive.

Mozilla has been trying to get on the iOS bandwagon for a very long time, and after the successful beta testing of the Firefox Browser, it’s finally been introduced in iPads and iPhones. But, here’s the catch – it’s only available in New Zealand, Australia, Canada and Austria for now.

Arguably, Apple’s ‘biggest’ announcement (pun intended) during the ‘Hey Siri’ event was the iPad Pro.
