Yesterday, Apple rolled out an iPhone 4s iOS 9.0.1 update, its second iOS 9 update in a week. With that in mind, we want to take a look at the most important things to know about Apple’s brand new iPhone 4s iOS 9.0.1┬árelease.

In June, Apple confirmed an iPhone 4s iOS 9 update. The update came as a little bit of a surprise given that Apple had, up until this year, kept iPhone iOS support to three years.┬áThe iOS 9 update is the iPhone 4s’ fourth major iOS update.
