Apple releases iOS 9.0.1

Apple releases iOS 9.0.1

iOS 9 only landed a week ago, but already Apple has released an update that'll fix its many, many bugs.

First and foremost, iOS 9.0.1 will fix an issue that prevented users from completing the set-up after updating to iOS 9.

It will also tackle a problem that caused the frame to be distorted when a video was paused in the Safari or Photos applications. And it'll repair the glitch that caused alarms and timers not to sound.

The 35MB file can be downloaded over the air via the Software Update page. You'll find that in the General Settings.

Apple claims that 50 per cent of all eligible devices – iPhones, iPads and iPod Touches – have already updated to iOS 9. Which is an impressive figure, given it's only been out a week.

Expect iOS 9 adoption to skyrocket from tomorrow, when the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus go on sale.

Huge sales are expected for both.

iOS 9 features a number of new features, including a more proactive Siri personal assistant, the News aggregator app, and split-screen multi-tasking for the iPad.

However, the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus are the only handsets to get the new 3D Touch interface that registers three levels of touch, and Live Photos which captures a second and a half either side of when you pressed the shutter to bring your pictures to life.
