But iPhone/iPad iOS 9 symptoms like fevering, hiccups, APP force termination, running out of memory are indeed common issues people encounter every now and then with iOS 9, since discrepancies between theory and practice is unavoidable, which also leads us to question the big improvement of iOS 9 AirPlay –Can we truly benefit from this amended function?
