Pick up where you left off. Whether you are writing an email and want to continue on your commute, or read that one engaging article on your favorite website on the couch rather than at your desk, Handoff is the way to go.

“Back to” last app button makes multitasking quicker

Then the lazyness sets in, perhaps you are even annoyed at having to switch between apps. The new “Back to” button makes things so much easier by sending you back to your last used app after dealing with the latest notifications and messages. Think of it as a global “Back Button”.

“Low Power Mode” is increasing your battery life

Apple has made our lives so much easier again, by introducing the “Low Power Mode” or “Power Saving Mode” to iOS 9 and increasing battery life by up to two hours on a single charge. How does this sorcery work, you might ask? Well, see for yourself.
