Apple issues first update for iOS 9
Update fixes minor bugs some iOS devices owners have seen such as failure to complete setup assistant after updating and failure of alarms and timers to work properly
The first update for iOS 9 has been already issued by Apple. The update is a minor one, iOS 9.0.1, but it fixes a couple annoying issues some users have been experiencing.
Though the list of fixes is short, Apple often doesn’t talk about any of the security elements of their updates unless the update is specifically designed to solve a major security issue. But it does seem that this update comes immediately following the discovery of infected apps that have been discovered, caused by developers using a corrupted version of Xcode. Apple this week sent developers an email asking them to validate their versions of Xcode and reminded developers to only download Xcode from the Apple developer site.
Here is what is fixed:
- Fixes an issue where some users could not complete setup assistant after updating
- Fixes an issue where alarms and timers could fail to play
- Fixes an issue in Safari and Photos where pausing a video could cause the paused frame to appear distorted
- Fixes an issue where some users with a custom APN setup via a profile would lose cellular data
For the most part, digital publishing vendors have not reported many issues with iOS 9, but it is certainly still early on.
Also: some owners of paid iBooks Store accounts have been receiving emails from Apple today saying that one of their books is “now available on iBooks” – TNM received that notice for the Guide to Digital Publishing Platforms which was originally published last fall.
No one seems to know why they are receiving these notices, possibly just a glitch as TNM has not received any notices for any of the other books published inside iBooks by TNM Digital Media.
