Don't Install It If You're Worried About Problems
If you're having an excellent experience on iOS 9.0.2, iOS 9.0.1 or something older, and you aren't overly excited about what iOS 9.1 has to offer, you might want to take a rain check on Apple's first milestone upgrade for iOS 9.
Here's the deal. iOS 9.1 fixes a lot of problems but there's a very good chance it will bring its own collection of issues to iOS users. Battery drain, connectivity problems and issues with apps are extremely common. You can't precict if you'll see these problems on your device and that's why you need to be careful.
The only thing you can really do is sit back and wait for iOS 9.1 feedback to arrive. iOS 9.1 users will start posting feedback about the update and its various problems in the hours, days and weeks to come. And you'll want to dig into that feedback so that you have a clear understanding of potential problems and the update's performance.
This is going to be especially important if you own an older device or if you're moving from something older than iOS 9.0.
If you are going to be reliant upon your iPhone or iPad for work or school today or this week, you might want to wait to install iOS 9.1.
iOS updates sometimes cause applications to go haywire. And that's the last thing you want if you need your phone or tablet for a meeting, a project or something else related to your job or schoolwork.
If you haven't updated your apps in awhile and you're moving from iOS 8 to iOS 9.1, there's a very good chance something will go wrong. (You will also get signed out so that could be a problem if you don't have your login info readily available.)
It's better to be safe than sorry and we recommend waiting a few days so that you can get a feel for iOS 9.1's performance and the performance of your core applications.
Make sure to keep an eye on the App Store for updates and bug fixes as we push away from the iOS 9.1 release date.
