California – After the disasters involved with iOS 8, Apple (NYSE: APPL) is releasing iOS 9 mobile platform, giving a preview of new iPhone, iPad and iPod touch software that will be available this fall.

Today Apple has officially released iOS 9 after nearly 100 days in beta testing, but for millions of users attempting to download it, the service has failed repeatedly causing numerous angry outbursts across social media.

With this upcoming release, iOS devices become more intelligent and proactive with powerful search and improved Siri features, all without compromising users’ privacy. New multitasking features designed specifically for iPad allow you to work with two apps simultaneously, side-by-side or with the new Picture-in-Picture feature, to keep watching a video while browsing the web, composing email or using any other app.
