iPhone 6s And 6s Plus iOS 9.1 Update Earns Praise For Fixing Many Problems
The iPhone 6s and 6s Plus have caused some problems for users — real or imagined. Some of the real problems include not being able to sign into iCloud, unusually low battery life, and notification problems. Apple forums have been buzzing for the past month with complaints on a variety of issues.
The Express has pointed out one of the newly discovered problems. Author Aaron Brown says a new Apple bug is causing the iPhones to expand apps and causing many of the app windows to be too big to use.
“Those unlucky enough to be suffering from the bug have been left unable to access and use key parts of the affected app as the US is cut-off by the sides of the display. Forums are now filling up with Apple iPhone 6S owners moaning about the latest issue,” claims Brown.
Even Forbes has found a lot of problems with iOS 9.02 that occur especially on the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus.
“In addition to numerous existing problems, including iMessage failures and system wide broken notifications and email, the official Apple Support Communities forum has been flooded by yet more reports of the iOS 9.0.2 dedicated bug fix patch doing more harm than good.”
Contributor Gordon Kelly adds that the with iOS 9.02, the iPhone also has touchscreen problems, the Game Center is not working, and that new apps or updated apps are freezing. It looks like the iOS 9.1 update came just in time. MacRumors has the news.
“Apple today released iOS 9.1 to the public, marking the first major update to the iOS 9 operating system that launched in September. In testing since before iOS 9 was even released, iOS 9.1 was beta tested for more than a month before its launch, with developers and public beta testers receiving five betas in total.”
MacRumors adds that besides fixing previous bugs, iOS 9.1 includes support for Unicode 7 and 8 and introduces a lot of new emoji like taco, burrito, cheese wedge, middle finger, champagne bottle, unicorn head, and others. Many in the comments section after the article were excited.
Twitter was also filled with excitement for the latest iPhone update.
GottaBeMobile did an extensive review on the update and came away impressed. They not only found the installation to be easy, but the major apps that were tested worked perfectly with the new iOS update. They didn’t find the same battery problems that existed for some people in iOS 9.02. The only slight problem GottaBeMobile found was a slight keyboard lag — however, this hasn’t been listed as a problem on any other sites.
ZDNet’s Adrian Kingsley-Hughes says that Apple delivers a much needed performance and stability update.
“Yesterday I ranted about how iOS 9 bugs were driving me crazy and how they were having an adverse effect on my productivity. Then, a few hours later Apple released iOS 9.1, and the difference that this has had on my iPhone is like night and day,” Kingsley-Hughes said.
He adds that the new iOS 9.1 update for the iPhone not only fixes 49 security vulnerabilities but that there is no longer a huge delay when turning the handset from portrait to landscape or vice versa. Kingsley-Hughes lists a bunch of other improvements as well. Judging from all the praise, it looks like the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus can now unleash their full potential.
