iOS 9 made some UI refinements over iOS 8, despite the fact that most of the UI looks primarily the same as before. One of the things Apple tweaked were the alerts that can pop up on your screen from notifications.
In iOS 9, Apple changed the design a little bit and made the corners much rounder, and if you aren't a fan of the change, then a new jailbreak tweak called 8Alerts may tickle your fancy.
Keyboard shortcuts are something we all have on our personal computers, whether it's a Mac or a PC, but it's not something that we get to enjoy on our iPhones or iPads.

We'll show you more in this review.
Many of you are probably familiar with the stock function of iOS that lets you restrict apps from having access to your cellular network, but iOS doesn't have a similar feature for restricting apps from utilizing Wi-Fi.

Earlier in the week, Apple updated iOS adoption numbers via its App Store dashboard for developers. According to the refreshed stats, the various iOS 9 editions now power 86 percent of iPhones, iPads and iPod touches, a two-point gain versus the 84 percent adoption rate that iOS 9 hit on April 20.
Last time we checked, iOS adoption rates stood at 84 percent of iPhone, iPod touch and iPad devices that were detected as running iOS 9. Moreover, eleven percent of hardware was on iOS 8 and the remaining five percent of devices used iOS 7 or older editions of Apple's mobile operating system.
These stats were valid as of a little more than two weeks ago. The new numbers Apple just posted to its App Store dashboard for developers, however, paint a not-so-rosy picture for iOS 9 adoption.
According to App Store device logs, the latest set of figures has not changed the slightest bit, or has not changed enough to move the needle versus two weeks ago.
iOS 9, Apple's latest and greatest edition of the mobile operating system powering the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad, is currently installed on 84 percent of device, according to the freshest stats posted on Apple's official App Store dashboard for developers.
In less than a month, iOS 9 adoption rate has climbed from the eighty percent mark, a figure Apple officially shared during its March 21 'Let us loop you in' media event, to 84 percent—a cool four-point gain.
In less than two weeks since iOS 9 was powering a reported 79 percent of devices, that figure has now climbed by one percentage point to eighty percent of devices, a significant milestone. While the new iOS 9 adoption numbers are yet to be publicized on Apple's App Store dashboard for developers, the freshest figure was mentioned on stage at yesterday's 'Let us loop you in' media event by Greg Joswiak, Apple's Vice President of iPhone Marketing.
After being stuck at the 77 percent mark for a full four weeks, Apple on Monday updated its App Store dashboard for developers with the latest stats on iOS 9 adoption. As per the newest device logs captured on March 7, 2016, iOS 9 is installed on 79 percent of devices that recently accessed the App Store.
The two-point increase versus the 77 percent adoption rate recorded a month ago came at the expense of iOS 8 and earlier versions that have lost ground to iOS 9.
The adoption rate of iOS 9 appears to be stalling at 77 percent of devices, according to the most recent stats published on Apple's dashboard for developers. The figure was derived from device logs capturing iOS hardware that has accessed the App Store on February 22, and is literally unchanged from the same 77 percent mark recorded two weeks ago.
iOS 8 continues to comprise seventeen percent of devices while older editions of iOS accounted for six percent of devices—again, same as two weeks ago.
According to the latest stats published today on Apple's App Store dashboard for developers, 77 percent of devices are now using iOS 9.0 or later.
The new data point, captured by the App Store on February 8, 2016, represents a one-point increase over the adoption rate of 76 percent recorded two weeks ago and a two-point gain versus the 75 percent figure that was captured a month ago.
As measured by the App Store on January 25, 2016, and published on Apple's App Store dashboard for developers, iOS 9 is now powering 76 percent of iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices, a one-percentage point gain versus the 75 percent mark that was recorded two weeks ago.
At the same time, the adoption rate for iOS 8 has dropped from nineteen percent as of January 13, 2016, to seventeen percent, a two-point loss.
Apple's iOS 9 operating system is currently powering three out of each four iPhone, iPod touch and iPad devices in the wild, according to the latest stats as measured by the App Store on January 11, 2016.
That's a four-point gain over the 71 percent adoption rate for iOS 9 reported a month ago, a notable increase due to no doubt strong sales in the holiday quarter.
