The reproductive health tracking includes a "Sexual Activity" section where users can type in details about a sexual encounter including the date, time and protection used (or not used), notes The Independent.

The sex info can be arranged in a graph or chart, and shared with other apps, but can also be kept private by users.

More features for iOS 9 include a more intelligent Siri (virtual assistant) and upgrades to the iPhone's performance.

According to the Daily Mail, iOS 9 also comes with a way for women to track their menstrual cycle, how much water a user drinks, UV exposure and time spent sitting.
