Turn the keyboard into a trackpad
One of the iOS 9 keyboard changes is the switch to lower case letters when you’re actually in lower case, which makes sense. What’s more, if you’re on an iPad, you can turn your touchscreen keyboard into a handy trackpad simply by pressing and holding two fingers on any of the keys.
 
Call up Siri from anywhere
“Hey Siri!” is the new “OK Google!” now iOS 9 is here. Previously the voice shortcut only worked when your iPhone was charging, but you can enable it anywhere via Siri under General in the Settings app. It only works on the latest iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus handsets though, unfortunately.
 
Manage battery life
iOS 9 wants to ease your battery life woes with a new low power mode that you can activate from the Battery menu inside Settings (it switches off a few background processes and can add up to an hour of life). Your battery icon turns yellow and you get a percentage view of the juice that’s left.
 
Hide photos
While we’re on the topic of pictures, iOS 9 lets you hide more sensitive material from view as well (just in case your friends grab your iPhone). On the Share menu you’ll find a handy new Hide option, though images are still visible (and can be unhidden) through the Albums view inside the app.
 
Select multiple photos
Forget split views, forget new apps, forget a more proactive Siri, because iOS 9 lets you select multiple pictures more easily than before. After you’ve tapped Select in the Photos app, you can tap and drag to pick the images you want to work with, rather than having to tap on them individually.
 
Block out the ads
Controversially, Safari on iOS now supports mobile ad blockers, so you can browse the internet at large free from memory-hogging, attention-grabbing promotions. If you go into the Safari section of Settings, you’ll see a new Content Blockers option, though you need to install one (or more) first.
 
Search through Settings
Finding what you need in the iOS Settings app has never really been a walk in the park, but help has arrived with iOS 9. You’ll notice a new search box at the top of the front screen in Settings: Enter your query here (e.g. “Bluetooth” and all of the matching options appear in a list underneath.
 
Add events from your emails
Part of Apple’s new, smarter, more proactive Siri and iOS strategy involves spotting events in your email messages and automatically adding them to your calendar (very Google Now-esque). Prompts should appear in both the Mail and Calendar apps when potential events are spotted.
 
Zoom in on your videos
You can now pinch and zoom on your video clips as well as your photos—go ahead and try it. There’s also a different way of choosing video and slo-mo recording modes, as long as your device supports them (open up Settings, tap on Photos & Camera and look under the Camera heading).
 
Take better Notes
Notes is another stock app with a lot of new stuff to show off with iOS 9. The revamped app lets you add web links, photos, checklists and drawings to your notes now, and everything can be synced via iCloud. There are now more formatting options to play around with, so watch out Evernote.
 
Write on email attachments
If you’ve always wanted to doodle on the attachments your friends and colleagues send you, then now’s your chance: Look for the Markup button when you open or press and hold on a particular attachment (where it appears depends on the file format of the attachment you’re opening).
 
Run smarter searches 
As Spotlight in iOS 9 learns more about you, it will make smarter search recommendations—swipe left from the main home screen to test it out. Your most frequently used contacts, apps, locations and more will be shown first, but you can keep scrolling down to see further options.
 
Split the screen
Attention iPad owners! You can all take advantage of the Slide Over feature in iOS 9 that brings in a second app as a sidebar—just slide your finger in from the right. iPad Air 2 (and iPad Pro) users can also activate the more advanced Split View by tapping and dragging the Slide Over border line.

Apple doesn't specifically tell you which apps are using the most memory, but it does allow you to check which apps have used the most battery over the last 24 hours or 6 days. Go to Settings > General > Usage > Battery Usage. Here you'll be able to see if a certain app has been used more than others. That might help change how you use that app. [...click for more]
