Apple releases iOS 9.1

Apple releases iOS 9.1

Apple has rolled out the latest update to its iOS 9 platform, bringing with it a host of new features and a series of important bug fixes.

iOS 9.1’s changes won’t be immediately obvious, but should go some way to making the iPhone and iPad experience better.

There are new emoji, including everything from burritos to a face with a thermometer in its mouth. Don’t say Apple doesn’t think of everything.

Live Photos, Apple’s movie–like snaps found on the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus are also getting a tweak.

The new update means the camera app can work out when your device is raised or lowered, so it won’t record the stuff you don’t need.

You can also now switch off photos for contacts within the Settings app, a tweak which has been widely commented on since Apple released the first beta versions of iOS 9.1 over a month ago.

The big news in the UK is that Apple News also forms part of iOS 9.1. The news aggregator promises to give you all the information you need in one place, so you don’t have to switch between sites while browsing the web.

iOS 9.1 can be downloaded from compatible devices now.
