Apple has released the iOS 9.1 update which comes with many bug fixes and improvements. Now, everyone has second thoughts about updating to the new iOS 9.1 because, for now, it can’t be jailbroken.

iOS 9.1: What’s New?

There are over 10 bug fixes and performance upgrades along with 150 new emoji characters. Here is the list of changes which come with iOS 9.1:

– Stability improvements for Music, CarPlay, Safari and Search;

Now, it seems that the new iOS 9.1 also enables the Wi-Fi calling for the Sprint customers. We remind you that T-Mobile and AT&T mobile carriers are already supporting the Wi-Fi calling. This feature allows you to switch to Wi-Fi signal when phone reception is too weak.

According to some reviews, in the iOS 9.1 beta there were some touchscreen glitches. However, it seems that the stable version of iOS 9.1 that Apple has just released has fixed the touchscreen issues. Unfortunately, not all the problems have been been solved, because many users have reported that the broken notifications was only improved, but not entirely fixed. At the same time, some users that had the POP email failures issues didn’t notice any improvement after updating their devices to iOS 9.1.

According to some reports, there are also some new issues which made their way to the iOS 9.1. It seems that the personalized ringtones and contact searching are not working.

As you can see, even if there are many fixes that iOS 9.1 comes with, there are also some new issues which will give you headaches. At the same time, some old errors are still partially fixed or not fixed at all.
