Apple releases first set of iOS 9 bugfixes, as iOS 9.0.1 update heads out

With its new public beta program for iOS, Apple’s been testing its latest mobile platform release like never before. With this new group of users joining iOS devs, to say nothing of Apple’s own internal testers, iOS 9 has likely had more eyes on it during development than any previous iOS build. And while all that testing has helped Apple iron out no shortage of bugs, it’s inevitable that some are going to remain. One week ago, we saw iOS 9 arrive for the public at large, and now it’s time for Apple to follow that up with its first iOS 9 bugfix update.

Today Apple gets distribution rolling on iOS 9.0.1, a small 35MB update that attempts to resolve a few extant issues. Those include fixing a glitch with the system’s setup assistant, a problem video playback distortion, alarm and timer bugs, and a custom APN situation that could result in an iPhone dropping cellular data connectivity.

We’re certain to see additional iOS 9.0.x series in the weeks to come as some more obscure bugs float to the surface, but for now, go ahead and get your iPhones and iPads updated with today’s 9.0.1 release.
