Apple Releases iOS 9.0.1 for iPhone 6s and 6s Plus

Apple today released a version of iOS 9.0.1 designed for its newest devices, the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus. iOS 9.0.1 was initially seeded to the public yesterday, but that version of the software did not include support for the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus.

Customers who receive an iPhone 6s or 6s Plus tomorrow will need to update to the new operating system after unboxing their devices, as they will presumably ship with iOS 9.0 installed.

iOS 9.0.1 is a minor software update that was released one week after the public launch of iOS 9. It includes several bug fixes, including a fix for an issue that prevented some users from upgrading their iPhones to iOS 9 because of an unresponsive "Slide to Upgrade" dialog.

There are just a few hours to go until the iPhone 6s launch kicks off in New Zealand. Once 8:00 a.m. rolls around in the country, iPhone 6s pre-order deliveries will begin. The first Apple Store sales will begin a couple hours later as 8:00 a.m. hits in Australia. In the United States, retail stores will open at 8:00 a.m. local time and pre-order deliveries will start at 9:00 a.m.

haha I laugh at those that always have to download the new OS release right away when it comes out. i work in IT...never ever update any software release until a few months or 1-2 updates later.

Hm, I don't remember the sequence of how things happen when activating a new phone, so not sure how that will work.


You'll have the two options to set up your 6s as a new iPhone or to use a backup. Set it up as a new iPhone, then update to 9.0.1. Once it's updated, restore it and this time use the 5s backup. That should avoid any conflicts.

Actually they still do. On Sept 16 they released an update (12.1.3) to Windows XP and Vista 32 bit and 64 bit to support iOS 9.
My nephew is running 32 bit vista and is now able to sync his iPhone 5C on iOS 9. My snow leopard and lion computers no longer can support iOS 9 even though they were released long after XP.

That seems crazy. My OH had a similar problem with her Polycarbonate MB when Apple stopped supporting that with new OS releases, we put Windows 7 on that until we could get her a newer MBP.

Not some most of the world like China India today is the 25th. The world does revolve around one country America but maybe is does for Americans because they never know what's happening outside of the own little world do they.

At the time the comment was posted it wasn't the 25th in North or South America, or Europe, or Africa, or the Middle East, so a good part of the world was still not quite there, while a good part was. Nice thoughtless attempt at a pointless jab at Americans that only demonstrates that ignorance is elsewhere.

Thank goodness. The stress of the original 9.0 release has given me walking nightmares, street terrors, diabetes and hysterical pregnancy. I had to downgrade back to iOS 8 just to sleep through the night.

Whoops, didn't realize this was for the 6S, I was referring to my 6.
