It’s launch day, and I take a quick look at iOS 9 on an iPhone 5.
In 1992, Apple decided that the education and design markets weren’t enough – it wanted to target mass market consumers. Rather than develop new computers for this market, Apple created a new brand and renamed three existing Macs as Performas.
iOS 8 introduced yet another smart idea, called Medical ID, creating a quick access medical card for emergencies.
