iOS 9.1 Release: 5 Things to Expect

Tomorrow, Apple will release its iOS 9 update for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Later this year, the company is expected to replace the update with iOS 9.1. Here are a few things to expect from the iOS 9.1 release.

The iOS 9 release date is just hours away and iPhone, iPad and iPod touch owners around the world are starting to get excited. We don’t blame them.

While the iOS 9 release looks a lot like last year’s iOS 8 update, it comes with a number of impressive features including a new Notes app, improved iPad multitasking, a new keyboard, a battery life boost for iPhone, and more.

The iOS 9.0 update will be the first iOS 9 update but it won’t be the last. Not by a long shot. In fact, Apple’s already got another iOS 9 update planned. That update? iOS 9.1. iPhone-5s-Review-20141-620x362 Shortly after the company confirmed the iOS 9 release date, it released an iOS 9.1 update into beta for developers and those in the free iOS Beta Software Program.

The iOS 9.1 beta confirmed an iOS 9.1 update but it didn’t confirm an iOS 9.1 release date. That announcement will come at a later date, if it even comes at all.

iOS 9.1 Beta

The first thing to expect from the iOS 9.1 update is the release of more iOS 9.1 betas. 

The iOS 9.1 beta 1 was released for developers and the general public right after the iOS 9 release date confirmation on September 9th. 

We typically see Apple space out is beta updates by two weeks or so so we probably won’t see another iOS 9.1 beta until later on this month. 

Apple won’t confirm these iOS 9.1 beta releases ahead of time. Instead, they’ll roll out at random in and around 9 or 10AM PT.

Expect these features to patch up issues with the iOS 9.1 update and potentially, add new features. With a release thought to be weeks away, there’s still a lot of time for change.
