According to Apple, “If your car supports wireless connection to iPhone, you can use CarPlay without plugging in. CarPlay also plays audio messages, so you can hear from people in their own voices. If you use your car’s knobs to control CarPlay, you can now take full advantage of the way they tilt and spin to scroll through lists or pan around in Maps. And apps developed by car manufacturers are supported, too — so you can control more of your car’s features without ever leaving CarPlay.” Pretty neat!

Multitasking!

FINNALY; But its only in the iPad. The once had an iPad Air, and I sold it because of a lack of multitasking. I may end up buying one again. Multitasking comes with three features:

  • Slide Over
    • This allows you to open a second app with out closing the one you are currently using. If you’ve ever used Windows 8 its like summoning the charms bar. I don’t know if that’s a good or bad thing.
  • Split View
    • I’m sorry to reference Windows 8, but that’s exactly what it reminds me of! Both apps are running side by side. You can also drag the border in the middle to change the side of whichever app you are using.
  • Picture in Picture
    • This one is awesome. While FaceTiming with someone, simply press the Home button and your session will scale down to the corner of the display. This makes it easy to continue working while using FaceTime.

QuickType

According to Apple you can, “Shape up your text in no time with an all-new Shortcut Bar, convenient editing tools, and a handy new way to select text with Multi-Touch gestures. And now when you use a wireless keyboard with your iPad, you can enjoy even more keyboard shortcuts.” And “Bold, italicize, or underline — even copy and paste — with just a couple of taps from your keyboard. The Shortcut Bar can also be customized for third-party apps, so the tools you need are always right where you need them.” This will be handy for those that use an iPad a their primary computing device, and may compel other to do the same.
