This feature allows users to perform quick tasks and then close the app. But, these two features only support iPad Air 2.

- Proactive Siri:
The main feature of iOS 9 is advanced Siri and Search. Siri will be smarter in iOS 9 as compared to its previous versions as well the ‘Spotlight’ feature will be known as ‘Search’ in iOS 9. Let’s take an example of improved Siri. If you are doing shopping in Safari at your office and suddenly you remember an urgent work, then you can say “Remind me about the shopping when I get house.” Siri will fulfill your wish and set a reminder for you by tracking the geo location and remind you with the attached link of the current page. In iOS 9 Siri will automatically add events into calendar if it finds details in messages or mail. There are also more improvements in Siri. Apple really works hard on this concept.
There are tons of other little cool improvements apart from the above features like improvement in Keyboard, improved performance and security, recommend travel time for your calendar event, more touch accessibility options and better battery life. But these are the major features of iOS 9.
