• Flight Tracking Feature to Become Native in OS X El Capitan and iOS 9



    It has been reported that Apple will be rolling out native flight tracking support in the company’s upcoming OS X El Capitan and iOS 9 operating systems. This is great news for those who travel often, but not so great for third party flight tracking app developers, Although not yet official, it has been said that users will be able to view live flight status and flight path previews in the new feature.

    News comes from a Reddit user as the flight tracking feature can already be accessed in recent OS X El Capitan and iOS 9 beta builds. According to the report, users will be able to view basic flight information like flight status, number, arrival and departure times as well as more in depth information like airport terminal and the current destination of the flight on the map.

    When users check for flights, status of ‘Delayed,’ ‘Early,’ or ‘Landed’ will come up in the feature. Let’s hope that this new incorporated feature will be more accurate than or just as accurate as some of the ones you download from the App Store. OS X El Capitan and iOS 9 are expected to roll out sometime this fall. Let’s hope it’s around the same time as the release of Apple’s iPhone 6s and 6s Plus devices.
