We’ve already rounded up several apps this week that have been updated with iOS 9 support and that rollout continues tonight to a pair of popular apps. This evening, both Pocket and Hulu for iOS have been updated with support for the latest version of Apple’s operating system. Pocket has been updated to version 6.0.1, while Hulu has been updated to 4.6.1.

First off, Hulu has been updated with support for Picture in Picture support on the iPad. This feature will allow for users to continue watching Hulu videos while using other applications and features of the iPad. “Picture in Picture for iOS 9 has arrived,” the description reads. “After starting your video, get back to that email you have been meaning to write while binging on The Mindy Project!”

Next, Pocket has been updated with support for several new iOS 9 features. First off, users can now use the iOS Spotlight search to find saved Titles and URLs in Pocket. Tapping on a Pocket article in Spotlight will bring them up in the standard Pocket Article View. Next, Pocket has also been updated with Picture in Picture support on iPad. This means that users can continue watching videos said in Pocket while using other apps on their iPad.

iOS 9 has landed! Pocket 6.0.1 brings support for new iOS 9 features, including:

  • Spotlight Search: Use Spotlight to search for saved Titles and URLs and open them directly in Pocket’s Article View.
  • Picture in Picture: Continue watching videos in Pocket while using other apps on your iPad.
  • Plenty of bug fixes and improvements made specifically for iOS 9. Enjoy!
 The latest version of Pocket and Hulu can be downloaded from the App Store now.

    The App Store has got a big problem after iOS 9 update. It doesn’t shows the update buttons for any app updates available.
