    Arrangements between big businesses to pre-install software on our devices is nothing new: bloat dates back far before this mobile-centric age in which we find ourselves now, after years of bogging-down new PC installs.

    Many of the rumors we've heard about iOS 9 have really just focused on telling us that Apple will relax its push of features to the next-generation OS. Apple has a ton of bugs to iron in iOS, and some experts even called iOS 9 as being for iOS what Snow Leopard was for OS X. That said, we don't expect Apple to make this ...
