A week after iOS 9 launched, Apple has released iOS 9.0.1 with a host of bug fixes. It’s certainly not a big update, but it will allow a small group of people who were unable to upgrade to iOS 9 finally get the latest iPhone operating system. That unresponsive “Slide to Upgrade” bug was annoying to people who were eagerly waiting to get iOS 9, but couldn’t.
Among the iOS 9 bug fixes:
- Fixes an issue where some users could not complete the setup assistant after updating, because the “Slide to Upgrade” function was unresponsive.
- 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
According to the release notes, iOS 9.0.1 fixes a bug where some users “could not complete setup assistant after updating.” That would be particularly troublesome, and could have left folks in an updating limbo. Additionally, alarms and timers apparently weren’t working properly, but those are also now fixed. Apple said it also repaired issues related to Safari and Photos pausing video and custom APNs turning off cellular data.
Compared to previous versions of iOS, iOS 9 is (so far) pretty bug-free. The biggest problem so far was Apple’s inability to satisfy demand, giving thousands of people headaches when they were unable to contact Apple’s servers to download the new operating system.
People are getting the 9.0.1 update already, however. Apple already had said that iOS 9 has the fastest adoption rate of any iPhone operating system in history.
