Apple has released its first major update to iOS 9 in the form of iOS 9.1. The update contains numerous security and bug fixes, and a host of new emoji messaging icons.
The note for the update explains that it fixes problems relating to performance of the multi-tasking function, calendar, messaging and mail apps, and stops the Live Photo feature on the new iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S taking live video all the time.
"Live Photos intelligently senses when you raise or lower your iPhone, so that Live Photos will not automatically record these movements," the update note stated.
The download also contains 150 new emoji messaging icons by adding support for unicode 8.0 and 9.0.
There are also several notable security fixes, including a flaw that could allow "a malicious application to execute arbitrary code with kernel privileges", uncovered by researchers with Pangu Team.
The update comes just over a month after the original launch of iOS 9 on 16 September, which is now in use on 61 percent of Apple devices.
The iOS 9 update works on the iPhone 4S and up, iPad 2 and up, all iPad Mini models and fifth- and sixth-generation iPod Touch devices.
The launch of the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus on 25 September will no doubt see the share of the market for iOS 9 rocket as they will run iOS 9 out of the box.
iOS 9 is more of an evolution of iOS 8 and the flat, parallax-infused design language established with iOS 7 in 2013.
However, iOS 9 does add new features to Apple's mobile operating system. These include improved battery life, bolstered security, context-aware search, and a reduced file size to make installing the operating system an easier process for devices upgrading from iOS 8.
Key features include a smarter version of Apple's virtual assistant Siri, which gains a new user interface and the ability to be more proactive when handling the one billion requests it receives every week.
Siri is able to deal with requests in a more contextual way, making suggestions based on a user's location or what is currently on the screen of an iPhone or iPad.
One example of this is asking Siri to remind a user of a website when they get home, for which it would use location data to carry out the request.
The new iOS also gives the native Maps app an overhaul, adding a new subset feature called Transit that provides specific information on public transport.
Enterprise users of iPads can also rejoice at the addition of split-screen multitasking for iPads which, as one would expect, allows two applications to be squeezed on a single screen.
To make installing iOS 9 more practical, it has been given the ability to delete apps then reinstall them automatically to make updating from iOS 8 a smoother process.
