LOS ANGELES (USA Today) — Every year, Apple introduces a new iPhone, and an update to its iOS mobile operating system.
At its Worldwide Developers Conference next week, Apple is expected to preview the latest version of iOS, version 9. Unlike previous years, it may run a little more smoothly and more efficiently than previous iOS versions, especially on older phones.
“A lot of people don’t want to upgrade, because they don’t think the new version will be stable,” says Mark Gurman, a senior editor with 9to5Mac, a leading Apple enthusiast site. “That will change this year.”
The previous iOS upgrade, released last fall, had many consumers complaining about battery and Wi-Fi issues with the new software.
