While the iOS 9.1 release date is still a secret, the iOS 9.1 update isn’t. iOS 9.1 has actually been official since September 11th, two days after Apple took the stage to announce the iPhone 6s and the iOS 9 release date.

The iOS 9.1 beta confirmed several important details. It confirmed an iOS 9.1 release for all iOS 9 powered devices including iPhone 4s and iPad mini. It also confirmed iOS 9.1 features including new emojis that will almost certainly be the highlight for many iPhone and iPad users around the world.

Update: iOS 9.1 is here. Here’s what to do before installing it.

Since the initial iOS 9.1 beta release, we’ve seen four more iOS 9.1 beta updates. Those beta updates have revealed a handful of changes but they haven’t outed the iOS 9.1 release date for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

Apple hasn’t confirmed anything but that doesn’t mean that we don’t have some idea about what to expect from the iOS 9.1 release date, iOS 9.1 release time, and some of the other important release details that should be on your radar.

Today, we want to take an updated look at a few things to expect from these important yet unannounced iOS 9.1 details. Here are a few things you should, and shouldn’t expect, from the iOS 9.1 release and release date.

Don't Expect iOS 9.0.3 or Any More iOS 9.1 Betas

While there are iOS 9.0.2 problems plaguing iPhone and iPad users, we don't expect a surprise iOS 9.0.3 release from Apple. 

We haven't seen anything iOS 9.0.3 related pop up in our server logs and all signs are pointing to an imminent iOS 9.1 release. An iOS 9.0.3 release would be shocking. 

With five betas under its belt, we're not expecting any more iOS 9.1 betas for developers and those in the public Beta Software Program. Apple typically doesn't release six betas so there's a very good chance last week's Beta 5 was the last.
