  1. I like the user multi-tasking (finally!) that iOS 9 brings to the IPad with features like the split screen. Windows had this since the dawn of time (or at least Windows 3.0). I also like the designed in inclusion of a stylus (Apple Pencil) that Mac prospered with since their inception. Live photos might be one of those "why didn't we think of that" concepts that really takes off (clearly enabled by ever faster processors and better cameras). NYT Apple Product Release Article
