Install It If You're Struggling With iOS 9 Problems
The iOS 9.1 update comes with a number of fixes for iOS 9 problems. If you're experiencing one of these problems, you might want to consider installing iOS 9.1:
- Improved performance while in Multitasking UI
- Fixes an issue that could cause Calendar to become unresponsive in Month view
- Fixes an issue that prevented Game Center from launching for some users
- Resolves an issue that zoomed the content of some apps
- Resolves an issue that could cause an incorrect unread mail count for POP mail accounts
- Fixes an issue that prevented users from removing recent contacts from new mail or messages
- Fixes an issue that caused some messages to not appear in Mail search results
- Fixes an issue that left a gray bar in the body of an Audio Message
- Fixes an issue that caused activation issues on some carriers
- Fixes an issue that prevented some apps from updating on the App Store
The last problem was one of the more annoying problems that popped up after the iOS 9 release. The issue affected more than a few iPhone and iPad users so it's nice to see that Apple's fixed it with the iOS 9.1 update.
The iOS 9.1 update comes with a ton of fixes but it's worth noting that it could fix issues that aren't listed in the official change log. We've seen this happen on several occasions after an iOS update is released to the public.
We've had iOS updates iron out abnormal battery drain and connectivity issues without noting them in the official list of fixes.
So if you've tried everything and you don't want to bring the device to an Apple Store, you might want to try the iOS 9.1 update. It could solve your iOS 9 problems. One other thing.
If you're on an older version iOS 9 and your device's performance leaves something to be desired, you might want to install iOS 9.1 right now.
I've been using the iOS 9.1 update on a number of devices (iPhone 6s, iPhone 6, iPhone 5, iPad) and performance has been excellent during my two weeks with the update. Of these, the iPhone 5 iOS 9.1 update is the most exciting.
The iPhone 5 iOS 9.1 update has turned performance around. It's not perfect but the update is much faster than any of the previous iOS 9 upgrades. I was thinking about factory resetting the phone and selling it before iOS 9.1. Now, I plan to keep it around.
If you're coming from something older, you'll need to proceed with a little more caution. But if you're coming from another version of iOS 9, know that iOS 9.1 is the best version yet. At least in our eyes.
