iPhone 5s iOS 9.0.1 Update: 10 Important Details

The iOS 9.0 update is only a week old but it has already been replaced with something new. Yesterday, Apple rolled out an iOS 9.0.1 update and today we want to take a look at the most important things to know about the iPhone 5s iOS 9.0.1 release.

In September, Apple’s confirmed three iOS 9 updates. The first, the iOS 9.0 update that rolled out last week with new features, enhancements and fixes for a long list of devices including the iPhone 5s flagship from 2013.

The second update is the iOS 9.1 update that’s currently in beta. The iOS 9.1 update will be the company’s first milestone iOS 9 release and it’s shaping up to be an exciting upgrade for all iOS 9 users.

The third iOS 9 update is the iOS 9.0.1 update that pushed out to the iPhone 5s and other devices out of the blue on September 23rd. The iOS 9.0.1 update isn’t as big as iOS 9.0 or iOS 9.1 but it’s an important update nonetheless.

Instead of new features, the iOS 9.0.1 update brings bug fixes for iOS 9 problems including an issue that prevents alarms and timers from going off. It’s an update that some iPhone 5s users have installed and one that others will discover in the days ahead.

As we push away from the release date, we’re starting to get a better read on the most important things to know about the software. With that in mind, we want to take a look what we think iPhone 5s users need to know about the iOS 9.0.1 release.

Keep these in mind as we march into October towards the iOS 9.1 release.

The iPhone 5s iOS 9.0.1 update is now 24 hours old and so far, we haven't seen or heard about any catastrphoic or widespread issues plaguing the iPhone 5s' performance.

Battery life checks out, connectivity (from our limited testing) is working fine, and we haven't run into any problems with applications though we've heard that some people are having problems with app updates and the App Store. It's about the same as iOS 9.0

While our iPhone 5s iOS 9.0.1 update is performing nicely, results have been mixed for other users, and that's why you really need to dig in to decide if the iOS 9.0.1 update, and its fixes, are necessary for you. 

Some places to look include YouTube, Apple's discussion forums, and Apple-centric sites like MacRumors forums. Dig into feedback and then make a decision. The iOS 9.0.1 isn't going anywhere.
