iOS 9.1 Release Date: 10 Things to Have On Your Radar

Apple hasn’t confirmed an official iOS 9.1 release date and there’s a good chance that it won’t. With an iOS 9.1 release date presumed to be just a few short days away, we want to take a look at everything there is to know about the first milestone update including details about the new iOS 9 jailbreak.

On September 9th, Apple confirmed its iOS 9 release date. Two days later, the company was already talking about the iOS 9.0 update’s successor.

On September 11th, Apple released the first iOS 9.1 beta. The beta not only confirmed the iOS 9.1 release but it also confirmed many of the enhancements the update will have on board when it arrives for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

The iOS 9.1 update, like the x.1 updates before it, is a much bigger update than your standard bug fixer. While iOS 9.0.1 and iOS 9.0.2 were focused on fixing iOS 9 problems, iOS 9.1 brings some exciting features to the table.

Last year, Apple confirmed an iOS 8.1 release date alongside its new iPads. This year, the company is reportedly skipping an October event which means that we might not get any official announcements ahead of time. Apple typically confirms iOS release dates on stage during launch events.

Apple will reportedly skip an October launch event which means that it might not talk about the iOS 9.1 release date on stage.

While Apple might not confirm an iOS 9.1 release date on stage, we have a pretty good idea about to expect from the iOS 9.1 release.

The iOS 9.1 update will almost certainly be the software that arrives on board the new 12-inch iPad Pro in early November. The iOS 9.1 release could come earlier than that though. 

With an Apple TV 4 release set likely for late October, there's a very good chance that the iOS 9.1 release date will land sometime this month. Why? Because you'll need iOS 9.1 to setup the Apple TV 4 with an iOS device.

Apple's been releasing rapid fire iOS 9.1 betas, a sign that the public release is getting closer and closer. You should start keeping an eye out starting in mid-to-late October and be on the lookout for concrete Apple TV 4 release date details.
