Earlier this week, Apple released an iPhone 5 iOS 9.1 update that brings fixes and new features to its former flagship. As we push away from the release date, we want to take a look at the most important things owners need to know about the iPhone 5 iOS 9.1 release.
In September, Apple confirmed the first major update to its brand new iOS 9 operating system. The company didn’t roll out the red carpet for iOS 9.1. Instead, it confirmed its arrival with a release into its beta programs for developers and the general public.
On Wednesday, after several weeks of testing, Apple rolled out the iOS 9.1 update to the iPhone 5 and its stable of other iOS 9 powered devices. And as expected, the update brings tons of changes to Apple’s new OS for mobile devices.
The spotlight is on the iOS 9.1 update’s emojis but the update is actually very focused on squashing bugs and improving Apple’s core applications. Apple’s first milestone upgrade for iOS 9.1 delivers improved stability for Music, CarPlay, Photos, Safari, and Search.
We’ve been using the iPhone 5 iOS 9.1 update and its new features and fixes for a few days now and today we want to take a close look at what we’ve learned about the iOS 9.1 update’s performance, problems and more.
If you’re still on the fence about whether or not you want iOS 9.1, this will help. This roundup will also help those of you that’ve already taken the plunge with Apple’s first big iOS 9 upgrade. Keep all of these in mind as we push away from the iPhone 5 iOS 9.1 release.
Battery life, connectivity, and app performance are all solid three days after the update's release. But where the update really shines is the speed of the user interface.
The iPhone 5 iOS 9.1 has dramatically improved the speed of our iPhone 5. Opening folders and scrolling around the home screens used to be a chore. That's not the case with iOS 9.1 on board. Animations and transitions are fast and fluid. It's night and day.
If you need additional feedback beyond our impressions, we encourage you to seek out opinions from other iPhone 5 users. YouTube is a great place to start though you'll want to branch out to other sites like Apple's discussion forums and Twitter.
