Revealed: The details of the Apple iOS 9 upgrade are leaked
Meet the new 'home' app
Apple is expected to announce a redesign of its operating system, the new iOS 9, on June 8 but Buro 24/7 Middle East has got hold of some of the new details after information about the upgrade leaked to 9to5Mac.
The biggest change is a new 'Home' app, that is said to act as a central control hub, linking (non-Apple) devices within the home to allow for centralised control of appliances such as home heating and cooling, lighting, security systems or smoke alarms, all completely wirelessly. What's more, Siri will be incorporated into these controls, effectively enabling you to run your household, set off the coffee machine, and turn up the heat, all through one central voice command.
There appear to be some other smaller changes in the interface, seeing the introduction of Apple's very own typeface, San Francisco, which was initially designed to allow better ease of readability for the Apple Watch. We expect to hear about these changes and more on June 8 when Apple makes its official announcement. Stay tuned to Buro 24/7 Middle East for that...
