In September, Apple confirmed the first major update to its iOS 9 operating system. The company didn’t roll out the red carpet or trumpet its arrival. Instead, it confirmed the iOS 9.1 update with a release into its beta program.
The iPhone 4s iOS 9.1 update was confirmed in early September but the upgrade didn’t roll out to the public until last week. Apple didn’t confirm a release date ahead of time and the update emerged out of the blue for all iOS 9 powered devices.
iOS 9.1 brings tons of changes with it. The update features over 150 new emojis for the iOS keyboard and it also comes with some bug fixes that are aimed at squashing some of the more glaring problems with Apple’s OS and its apps.
We’ve been taking a close look at the iOS 9.1 update and today we want to put the iPhone 4s iOS 9.1 update under the microscope and tell you about a few things iPhone 4s users should know as we move away from its release date.
This iPhone 4s iOS 9.1 update features information about a new annoying iOS 9 problem, iOS 9.1 performance and some tips that will come in handy before, during, and after the iOS 9.1 installation process.

1 / 10
As we push away from the iOS 9.1 release date, we're starting to see feedback about the iPhone 4s iOS 9.1 update emerge. We recently rounded up a ton of that feedback and we found that the iOS 9.1 update has delivered a mix bag of results.
Some users are dealing with problems including lag but others have noted performance gains after the installed the new upgrade. Reviews are mixed but we're still able to draw a few conclusions.
If you're already on iOS 9, you should be fine moving to the iOS 9.1 update. Performance is solid for many users and the new features make it worthy of consideration.
If you're coming from something older, you'll really want to be careful. iPhone 4s users moving from iOS 7 have said that they've seen noticable slowdown after moving to iOS 9. The difference between iOS 8 and iOS 9 isn't as dramatic but you'll still want to weigh the merits of iOS 9's features before you make the move.
If you're looking for additional feedback, take a look on YouTube, Twitter and Apple's own discussion forums. We've seen a ton of feedback emerge in the days since release and we should see more emerge in the days ahead.
