The first update was iOS 9.0, a system upgrade that touched down for the iPhone 5s and others on September 16th. The update delivered numerous enhancements and features to the iPhone including a new Notes app, Low Power Mode and more.

A week later, Apple replaced iOS 9.0 with iOS 9.0.1, a small bug fixer aimed at some of iOS 9’s most glaring issues. iOS 9.0.1 was only around for a week before Apple rolled out its current iOS 9 software, iOS 9.0.2.
