    You can now move your Apple smartphone to the latest version of iOS. It has good news for fans of emojis, but mostly includes a lot of bug fixes.

    You can install it by connecting your iPhone or iPad to a computer running iTunes, or it can be downloaded and installed directly on the device: Settings > General > Software Updates.

    Please share your experiences with the upgrade process and any thoughts on the new version.

    Official Changelog for iOS 9.1

    This release includes new features, improvements and bug fixes, including:

    • Live Photos now intelligently senses when you raise or lower your iPhone, so that Live Photos will automatically not record these movements
    • Over 150 new emoji characters with full support for Unicode 7.0 and 8.0 emojis
    • Improved stability including CarPlay, Music, Photos, Safari, and Search
    • Improved performance while in Multitasking UI
    • Fixes an issue that could cause Calendar to become unresponsive in Month view
    • Fixes an issue that prevented Game Center from launching for some users
    • Resolves an issue that zoomed the content of some apps
    • Resolves an issue that could cause an incorrect unread mail count for POP mail accounts
    • Fixes an issue that prevented users from removing recent contacts from new mail or messages
    • Fixes an issue that caused some messages to not appear in Mail search results
    • Resolves an issue that left a gray bar in the body of an Audio Message
    • Fixes an issue that caused activation errors on some carriers
    • Fixes an issue that prevented some apps from updating from the App Store​

    Apple also updated iTunes, Mac OS X, and watchOS.

    Can anyone confirm whether iOS 9.1 fixes the "0:00" bug? I never actually experienced this myself, so I can't really tell, but I have seen it firsthand as well as numerous reports on Apple's forums.

    Haven't experienced that bug, either. Upgraded the iPhone 6 in preparation for passing it along next month. No problems. :vbsmile:

    Those new emojis are pretty cute, huh? :thumbsup:

    The crying cactus must be the most ridiculous emoji ever.

    Ed, that's not iOS, is it? :vbconfused:

    I looked thru all of my Apple devices and didn't see it anywhere. I did find, however, that I have 2 of the same snowman.

    I updated to WatchOS 2.0.1 and a couple of days later to iOS 9.1. On both my iPhone 6 and iPad mini 3 the upgrade was a mostly non-event. I don't like signing into iCloud after software updates. I shouldn't have to sign into anything. In the "good old days" after a software update, I could simply pick up using my phone again and the only way (besides new functionality or visual cues) to see something had changed was to go into Setup->General->About and see the iOS version number.

    I noticed my watch got a LOT better battery life after WOS 2.0.1 but then yesterday it ran down to only 15% by early evening. I've come to view AW as a beta product and it's one of the few times I have mixed feelings about being an early adopter of Apple gear.
