Apple has today released iOS 9.1 which is the first major “dot” update of the recently launched iOS 9 operating system. It was in testing phase before iOS 9 was even released. iOS 9.1 was beta tested by developers and public beta testers for more than a month before it was finally launched. The new iOS 9.1 update is basically an over-the-air update for all iOS 9 users. It is iOS 9’s third update so far with Apple previously releasing iOS 9.0.1 and 9.0.2 earlier. Apart from that, Apple also released Xcode 7.1 along with the tvOS golden master (GM).
However, what’s more important is that iOS 9.1 has a very limited number of outward facing changes. It will include support for Unicode 7 and 8 along with the availability of a new range of emoji like burrito, taco, cheese wedge, champagne bottle, middle finger, unicorn and more. iOS 9.1 will also include an update for “Live Photos” which now senses whether the iPhone is in a raised position or lowered position so as to refrain from recording any kind of unnecessary movement.
Apart from that, iOS 9.1 will also offer new features and compatibility updates for a wide range of upcoming Apple products that are compatible with this OS like the fourth-gen Apple TV, iPad Pro. This new update would also include bug fixes for a wide array of issues which iOS users have been experiencing with the new OS while enhancing the performance and fixing some unattended security loops making iOS 9 all the more difficult to crack up.
