iPhone 6 iOS 9 Update: 7 Important Details

Apple’s confirmed an iPhone 6 iOS 9 update for the fall and thanks to mounting evidence, we’re starting to get a feel for when the update might get released. With that in mind, we want to take a look at the most important iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus iOS 9 update details you should know right now.

In June, Apple hosted its annual WWDC event for developers. There, the company outlined a number of new products including a brand new iOS operating system appropriately called iOS 9. iOS 9 will be coming to replace the iOS 8 update sometime later this year.

On stage, Apple outlined many of the key iOS 9 update details. It confirmed several features, announced an iOS 9 beta, and revealed that it would release the iOS 9 update in the fall. It did not, however, confirm a specific iOS 9 release date for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users.

Apple’s confirmed an iOS 9 update for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. This doesn’t come as a surprise given that they arrived with iOS 8 on board. iPhones are typically updated for three years before they’re kicked to the curb.

Shortly after the conclusion of the WWDC 2015 keynote, Apple released an iOS 9 beta for developers. A few weeks after that, the company released a public iOS 9 beta for members of the public Beta Software Program. The public iOS 9 beta is the first major public iOS beta. 

Thanks to these iPhone 6 iOS 9 betas, we've learned a whole lot about the iPhone 6 iOS 9 update for the regular model and the iPhone 6 Plus. We've seen new and important features emerge and we've also seen beta testers relay their thoughts about the update's performance. 

iOS 9 beta users have been looking at the update's performance on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, even comparing the software to Apple's latest update, iOS 8.4.1. Those links are just two examples. There are tons of iOS 9 beta 5 videos on YouTube.

These videos don't show the final version of iOS 9 but they're still important details nonetheless. One, because iOS 9 beta 5 could be close to the finished version of the software and two, they'll give you an idea about what to expect from the iOS 9 update's features on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. 

You don't want to go into the iOS 9 release date blind and we highly recommend keeping tabs on the iOS 9 beta so that you're comfortable when the update arrives for your device.
