With the release of the first beta of iOS 9, Apple has given developers and those who simply can’t wait for a public beta a very first take a look at what will be shipping around September time. While headline features such as a new Siri and iPad-based split-screen multitasking are getting all the acclaims, there are lots of changes under the hood that won’t even be observed by the majority of people. However that does’t imply that they aren’t important.


One modification in iOS 9 that will certainly come as welcome one is the capability to lastly email more than 5 images at a time without needing to jump through a couple of hoops while doing so. With iOS 8 currently, any individual desiring to email pictures by means of the integrated Mail app needs to keep in mind the limitation of just five images per email. There are methods around that restriction such as copying and pasting the images instead of deciding to putting them to the email in the traditional ways such as using the Share Sheet, however that’s more of a hack than a solution.

Now though, or a minimum of once iOS 9 ships, that 5 image constraint has actually disappeared, meaning it’s possible to email as numerous pictures as you like from the Photos app presuming the recipient’s mail server is delighted with the file size. It’s not a huge modification, however it’s a welcome one as far as we’re concerned.

Couple this with that we can when again select numerous images in the Photos app by swiping over them rather than needing to tap them all individually.


Apart from the above pointed out change, the iOS 9 Mail app likewise allows users to add or save any kind of attachment, right from the iPhone or iPad’s stock email customer. This is something which has not been possible before, and it took Apple more than 7 years to recognize.

Well done Apple, it’s good to see that good sense lastly dominated. At least in this case.
