Seemingly out-of-the-blue, Apple released iOS 9.0.1 to the public today exactly one week following iOS 9’s grand debut last Wednesday. While iOS 9 includes a slew of new features, including under-the-hood improvements, a News app, more advanced navigation, new Siri capabilities, reimagined multitasking and more, iOS 9.0.1 is an incredibly small release focused on correcting bugs. While those running iOS 9.0 will certainly appreciate iOS 9.0.1, Jailbreakers may have a drastically different outlook on today’s release.
iOS 9.0.1 Changes and Features
Starting with the changes, iOS 9.0.1’s all-new changelog, taken directly from iOS’ built-in OTA update feature, is as follows:
- Fixes an issue where some users could not complete setup assistant after updating
- Fixes an issue where sometimes alarms and timers could fail to play
- Fixes an issue in Safari and Photos where pausing video could cause the paused frame to appear distorted
- Fixes an issue where some users with a custom APN setup via a profile would lose cellular data
Next, as far as Jailbreaking is concerned, those who are currently on an un-Jailbreakable firmware (e.g. iOS 8.4.1 or 9.0) can make the jump to iOS 9.0.1 knowing that they’ll be covered when the next utility is released.
iOS 9.0.1 and Jailbreaking
Having said that, it’s still conceivable that Jailbreak developers could issue a tool for 8.4.1 before they do for iOS 9 – in which case, follow our latest tutorial to downgrade iOS 9 to iOS 8.4.1.
For new developments on the Jailbreak scene, I strongly recommend watching my above video in its entirety if you’re interested in a new iOS 9 utility capable of delivering a Jailbreak on iOS 9.0.1.
