I am sure that iOS 9 will be a nice upgrade but I have the impression that the changes are subtle. What do we get with iOS 9? A better Siri A better Notes app (sorry Apple but Evernote and OneNote are still much much better) A new Music app that isn't really better than Google Music or Spotify (I would say they are on par) Some small improvements in 1st party apps New APIs for developers iOS 9 will still work exactly the same as iOS 1.0 worked. We will still get the same grid of icons, with almost no customization options. I don't want to start complaining about the lack of widgets. iOS has the notification center for that and it's fine, but I would like to be able to freely move icons and folders to wherever I want them to on screen. I would like to leave free space so that I can enjoy my nice background picture. I would like to make my iPhone really mine. Apple has made the iPhone a great tool, but this tool lost its personal touch. I like my technology to be personal and I have lost this feeling with the iPhone. Not because of the hardware (which is great), but because of the software which is working like a utility. I want to think of my smartphone as something more than a tool. Is it just me? Please don't get me wrong. I am using Macs all the time, I love them and I love what Apple has done to OS X. I have used all iPhones since the beginning, but the last two years I started looking at the competition.. The iPhone is still the best phone for the majority of users. It works out of the box really well, something that is not a given when you look at the competition. I just want to have a more exciting iOS. At least the iPad version is getting an exciting (and long overdue) feature: Split screen multitasking. It won't solve all iOS' issues, but it might be enough for me to start using an iPad again. I wish I could say the same for the iPhone too.
