Apple outs the first iOS 9 update and squishes some early bugs

Exactly a week after it became available to consumers, Apple has released the first software update for its iOS 9 operating system.

As is traditionally the case, Cupertino has taken the opportunity to wipe out a couple of glitches as early as possible.

iOS 9.0.1 contains a number of bug fixes, including an issue that prevented users from completing the set-up after updating to iOS 9.

It also combats an issue that caused the frame to be distorted when a video was paused in Safari or Photos. The update also takes care of a problem which caused alarms and timers not to sound.

The 35MB file can be downloaded over the air via the Software Update page in General Settings.

The fix comes amid record adoption rates for iOS 9. On Monday, Apple claimed more than 50 per cent of eligible devices had already updated.

iOS 9 features an improved, more ‘Proactive’ Siri personal assistant, the News aggregator app, and split screen multi-tasking for the iPad.

There’s also a new multi-tasking menu, while the San Francisco font debuted on the Apple Watch goes system wide here.

The operating system will make its out-of-the-box debut on the iPhone 6S and 6 Plus, which are both released on Friday.
