Today, exactly one week following Apple’s release of iOS 9.0.1, the company issued the second installment to iOS 9 to the public, being 9.0.2. Interestingly, although iOS 9.0 introduced a number of new features, including performance enchantments, added Siri functionality, redesigned multitasking, the ability to proactively determine what apps to suggest and more, both iOS 9.0.2 and its predecessor are very minor releases intended on addressing complications. However, while bug fixes are great in most cases, those who aren’t running iOS 9.x and remain Jailbroken on iOS 8.4 or earlier should undeniably avoid iOS 9.0.2.
iOS 9.0.2 Features and Revision – Pre Jailbreak
To start, let’s begin with iOS 9.0.2’s latest changes, taken directly from iOS’ built-in OTA update changelog:
- Fixes an issue with the setting to turn on or off app cellular data usage
- Resolves an issue that prevented iMessage activation for some users
- Resolves an issue where an iCloud backup could be interrupted after starting a manual backup
- Fixes an issue where the screen could incorrectly rotate when receiving notifications
- Improves the stability of Podcasts
Moving from iOS 9.0.2’s meager revisions, let’s talk Jailbreaking. Those of you who are currently on iOS 9 or 9.0.1 are safe to make the upgrade to iOS 9.0.2 knowing full well you’ll be covered when the next Untethered Jailbreak for iOS 9 is released, as 9.0.2 doesn’t include additional security improvements.
iOS 9.0.2 Jailbreak Update – Should You Upgrade?
However, those of you Jailbroken on iOS 8.4 or earlier, the jump to iOS 9.0.2 will result in the instant loss of your device’s Jailbreak – avoid updating to iOS 9.0.2.
For additional information on Jailbreaking and whether you should update from iOS 8.4.1 (the only iOS 8 firmware that remains un-Jailbroken), I recommend watching my above video and navigating to Evasi0n Jailbreak’s dedicated iOS 9.0.2 jailbreak update and information section.
