The past two weeks have been busy ones for the iPhone 6s and its iOS 9 software. We’ve seen two new iOS 9 updates and we’ve seen iPhone 6s problems emerge. With that in mind, we want to recap everything we’ve learned about the iPhone 6s iOS 9 update in the two weeks since release.
In early September, Apple took the stage and announced brand new iPhone models. The iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus replace the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus as Apple’s flagship smartphones and they do so with a number of impressive features, one of which is the company’s iOS 9 operating system.
When the iPhone 6s arrived on doorsteps on the morning of September 25th, it was running iOS 9.0. iOS 9.0 didn’t stick around for long though.
Those who setup their iPhone 6s on Friday were greeted with a prompt to install the iOS 9.0.1 update, a bug fixer from Apple. A week later, iPhone 6s users received another iOS 9 update dubbed iOS 9.0.2. iOS 9.0.2 is another bug fix update aimed at curbing iOS 9 problems.
Needless to say, it has been an extremely busy two weeks for Apple, for the iPhone 6s, and for the iOS 9 update that powers it.
With iOS 9 and iPhone 6s problems swirling, we’ve put the iPhone 6s iOS 9 update under the microscope in an effort to keep you informed. And now that we’ve hit the two week mark, we want to take a look at the most important things you need to know about iOS 9 as a whole as we push deeper into the month of October.
Our iPhone 6s iOS 9 Impressions: Good & Very Bad
For the most part, our experience with the iPhone 6 iOS 9 update has been good. We've used all three iOS 9 updates for the iPhone 6s and we haven't run into any major problems with battery life, connectivity, or UI speed.
We've encountered an iPhone 6s sound problem that limits the volume of the iPhone speaker and can stop notification sounds until you receive an iMessage. The Facebook application is the culprit, it seems. There's a fix but that doesn't make the problem any less annoying.
Other than that, the iPhone 6s iOS 9 update has been solid in its first two weeks. If you're not already on iOS 9.0.2, you should consider it. Start with our impressions and then branch out from there.
