iOS 9 icon

A week after Apple pushed iOS 9 to the public, it has followed up with the release of iOS 9.0.1. As you may have guessed by the version number, iOS 9.0.1 is a bug fix update. All users running iOS 9 should therefore update to iOS 9.0.1 for increased system stability.

Perhaps most notably, we saw several users in our comments talk about failed upgrades, where iOS would freeze when using the Slide to Upgrade feature in the Setup Assistant. That issue should now be solved thanks to iOS 9.0.1.

Here is the change log for the iOS 9.0.1 release:

  • Fixes an issue where some users could not complete setup assistant after updating
  • Fixes an issue where alarms and timers could fail to play
  • Fixes an issue in Safari and Photos where pausing a 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

To initiate the update, connect to iTunes and check for update via the device summary page, or use the OTA update feature on your iOS device found in Settings → General → Software Update.
