  • Apple Officially Launches iOS 9 to the Public, Download Available Now!


    Apple has stuck to its promise and delivered iOS 9 Wednesday afternoon as a free upgrade for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad users. The update adds a variety of new features to the operating system, improves its performance and reliability, and makes for improved battery life.

    We made a dedicated post to the major new features in iOS 9 that you can read here before deciding whether or not to download and install iOS 9. According to a recent poll, about half of you that participated in it said you would upgrade to iOS 9 today.

    Some of the major new features include the addition of the new Wallet and News applications, which make keeping track of your credit cards, debit cards, and loyalty cards easier, as well as help you keep track of your favorite curated news posts. Moreover, Discover Card is supported by Apple Pay in iOS 9, improvements to caller ID, Maps, CarPlay, Notes, and Siri are present, and a new low power mode lets you get extra battery life out of your device when you're getting low and need your device to survive. There are many other features too, which you can read out in the aforementioned post.

    Unlike iOS 8, there is currently no jailbreak for iOS 9, so those of you that are loyal to the ways of jailbreaking may want to hold off. iOS hacker ih8sn0w did demonstrate an untethered jailbreak for iOS 9, but it was on a 32-bit iPhone 5, and he noted that 64-bit devices have a type of kernel protection that could put the device into a kernel panic if the device's kernel is modified in any way (hence why iOS 9 is being called rootless).

    If you will be updating, you can tackle it one of two ways: either OTA (over the air) or via iTunes. We've found that updating via iTunes is typically the most stable way to go about things, but OTA update will give those of you without a computer at the moment, or that need the convenience, a way to get iOS 9 without hooking up to a computer.

    iOS 9 will install on all devices that can run iOS 8, and will come standard on all of Apple's latest mobile devices, including the iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPad mini 4, and iPad Pro. A list of compatible devices is made available to you below:



    Notably, watchOS 2, which was supposed to launch today alongside iOS 9, has been delayed due to a significant bug. Stay tuned and we'll continue to keep you updated on the release status of watchOS 2.

    For additional information on iOS 9, you can head over to Apple's Web site at this link. Are you upgrading your device(s) to iOS 9?

      Anyone having trouble updating their apps on iphone/ipad? It showing me that updates are available but won't let me update in the app store. The 'update' icon quickly turns into the 'open' icon.

      That's the best way to do it, but Cydia Impactor is another option. Not sure it's the best option for this scenario though; I'd use a computer if you're upgrading.

      Is this an update you can only do from your computer? The OTA is still saying 8.4.1. Hope it fixes the Bluetooth connectivity issues I've been having with my apple watch.

      That was probably the reason. It's working fine now.

      Well running the GM since last week and just checking for updates for the hell of it? I can say Apple did release an updated version from the GM last week. GM(13A340) Public release(13A344). Just giving a heads up to anyone that may be running GM still.

      So if I am running 9.1 beta, is there any reason to "downgrade" to the official 9.0 release? The only thing I see is one bank app thinks my phone is JB when obviously it's not. So it will not work. I always thought the real release is better then any beta but I am not sure what the difference is with 9.1 vs 9.0. Haven't really seen any write up on that yet.
