Apple Releases iOS 9.0.1

The latest update has with minor fixes for alarms, video playback, and setup assistant.

If you have a supported iDevice, then you need a heads up, as this one took me by surprise on Friday. After only about a week of life, iOS 9.0 is no more. Apple has released iOS 9.0.1 to help address a handful of bugs.


The new update is available now for download via your handset as an over the air update (OTA), or as a 1.84GB download via iTunes. According to Apple, the latest iOS update contains a number of bug fixes including

  • Addressing an issue where some users could not complete setup assistant after updating
  • Fixes an issue where sometimes alarms and timers could fail to play
  • Fixes an issue in Safari and Photos where pausing video could cause the paused frame to appear distorted
  • Fixes an issue where some users with a custom APN setup via a profile would lose cellular data

IOS 9 in and of itself includes a number of new features including more advanced iPad multitasking, a News app, as well as search and Siri enhancements. There are a number of performance improvements and tweaks that provide better batter life, better storage management – especially when updating to a newer, supported version of iOS – and also offers an overall, smaller footprint, as well. Devices dating back to the iPhone 4s, the iPad 2 and the fifth generation iPod Touch are among the devices that can run iOS 9.

IOS 9.0.1 is relatively minor in nature, but its expected that Apple is going to turn up the speed on the updating machine and we’ll see some more advanced features with iOS 9.1, the version that will accompany the iPad Pro when its released to the general public later this year. A second beta of iOS 9.1 was made available to Apple’s developer community on Wednesday 2015-09-23.

Uptake of the new OS is supposed to be faster than any other previous version of iOS, according to Apple. As of this writing, more than half of the iDevices accessing Apple’s mobile App Store had already made the switch from iOS 8.x.
