Last week, Apple rolled out an iPad iOS 9.1 update that delivers bug fixes and new features to owners of its popular slates. Today we want to take a look at the most important things to know about the iPad iOS 9.1 update.
In September, Apple confirmed an iOS 9.1 update for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. The company didn’t confirm the update on stage alongside the iPhone 6s though. Instead, it confirmed its arrival with the release of an iOS 9.1 beta for the public and for developers.
Apple released several other iOS 9.1 beta updates before it pushed out the official version of the iOS 9.1 update. The iOS 9.1 release date for iPad and Apple’s other iOS 9 powered devices took place last week. As expected, the iOS 9.1 update brought tons of changes along with it.
Apple’s iOS 9.1 update for iPad is packed with new features and a ton of bug fixes for iOS 9 problems. The update also comes with increased stability for stock apps like Photos and Music. It’s a large update and it’s an exciting update.
We’ve put the iOS 9.1 update under the microscope in the days since its release and today we want to take a close look at the iPad iOS 9.1 update. This roundup takes a look at the update’s performance, at some of the iOS 9.1 problems plaguing iPad users and some of the things you should do before you install iOS 9.1.
Keep these things in mind as we push deeper into the month of October towards another iOS 9 update for Apple’s iPad.
iPad iOS 9.1 Update Impressions: Very Good So Far
1 / 10
We've been using the iPad iOS 9.1 update since Wednesday. More specifically, we've been using the update on the iPad Air 2, iPad Air 2, and iPad mini 2. We've also used it (briefly) on the iPad 3. And what we've found is that the update, at least on our versions of the iPad, is extremely stable.
Battery life is holding up well as we approach the week mark. We haven't noticed any weird drain when in use or when the tablets are in standby. The UI is still fast on all of these devices, iPad 3 included, ane we haven't run into any issues with connectivity. Important because only our iPad mini 2 features LTE.
The iOS 9.1 update and its features are going to be worth it for most of you but you'll probably still want to seek out a second or third opinion before you upgrade.
