In iOS 9, apps and key technologies have been made more efficient to trim battery usage. Because of ambient light and proximity sensors, iPhone knows if it's facedown on the table and prevents the screen from turning on. And the new Low Power mode lets you extend your battery life even further. It is claimed that the battery life is extended about three hours.
iOS 9's double screen mode allows you to multitask on iPad Air, iPad Air 2, iPad mini 2 and iPad mini 3. 5:5 and 7:3 two sizes choices are available. You can open a second app without leaving the one you are in now. So you can quickly respond to a text, browse the web or something else. You just need to slide that app away and get back to the one you were using before.
Meanwhile, QuickType is introduced in iOS 9 on iPad. You can Shape up your text in no time with an all-new Shortcut Bar, convenient editing tools, and a handy new way to select text with Multi-Touch gestures.

The passcodes has been increased from four digits to six digits. Besides, with two-factor authentication, you will be prompted for a verification code when you sign in from a new browser or on a new device.
Except for above aspects, Homekit and CarPlay have been improved as well. iCloud connection option has been introduced into Homkit for the first time. Users can remotely control Homekit-related intelligent devices via iCloud. As for CarPlay, the highlight lies in wireless connection.
