New operating system gives mixed messages to Apple users

Avid iPhone users and tech-oriented fans were rapidly up-to-date with the newest Apple Software update, iOS 9.1, while other iPhone customers disregarded the update notification as a waste of time and disastrous to their current operating system.

On Oct. 12, Apple came out with their renovated iOS 9.1 beta 5 software with the hopes of introducing many creative features and solutions to problems within the previously released updates. Without success, Apple was quick to cover up the issues with the next update, but even this did not help very much.

According to, “Apple released iOS 9.1 Beta 5. iOS 9.1 will be the first major iOS 9 update and is tasked with addressing the bevy of bugs missed by iOS 9.0.1 and iOS 9.0.2 – both of which were dedicated bug fixes but did nothing other than paper over the cracks.”

Although new updates can sometimes go the wrong way, as did iOS 9.0.2 with issues with battery life, iMessages, touchscreen and many more, the main purpose of appealing features and apps still remains apparent.

For many texters, the latest update with the addition of more emojis has many pumped and some confused. Those who have not done the update see a box with an alien face or a question mark in place of the emjoi that is not existing on their phones. Others, who did the update as soon as possible, were astonished to finally find all of the recent silly-faced, yellow characters available.

According to, there are 184 more emojis to choose from including a unicorn, a robot, a burrito and a plethora of flags from various countries.

Apple advertises the newest update as, “iOS 9 is full of enhancements you’ll appreciate every day. Your apps become more essential. New multitasking features on iPad make you even more productive. Siri can do more than ever, and new proactive suggestions help you get things done before you ask. And improvements at the foundation of the operating system enhance performance, battery life, and security. The more you do with iOS 9, the more you’ll wonder how you ever did without it.”

Even though their advertisement may seem impressive, many are still experiencing trouble, even with iOS 9.1; many realize it is time to solve these problems personally and not wait for another possibly ineffective update.

As there are problems within every major update, iOS 9 does come with some imperfections yet still has pleased many customers. This update many still be a worthwhile update, especially with the ability to finally put a unicorn and even a tornado into a text message.
