More, iOS 9.1 is also needed for the proper integration of the new iPad Pro with its main accessories the Smart Keyboard and the Apple Pencil. Up to date iOS devices are currently running 9.0.2, which is one of the two minor updates (9.0.1), provided within the opening month. Whether we will have a 9.0.3 release before the 9.1 is unclear yet, but you’ll be the first to find out if you stick with us here at iPhoneTricks.org!
iOS 9.1 Beta 5 Update Log
Apple’s version info doesn’t provide too many clues. It states the standard “This beta version of iOS 9.1 contains bug fixes and improvements” message. So, we have to explore and discover any changes by testing. After a few hours there doesn’t seem anything important to report, except a slight battery life improvement. However, I’ll update this article as soon as something else is uncovered. Nevertheless, if you haven’t checked the iOS 9.1 betas yet you have to know that besides compatibility updates the build also brings new features like: additional smileys including the middle finger emoji, Unicode 8, Show Contact Photos option, new wallpapers and much more.
