OMG! If I didn't log in to the eiC I would not have known this update was available now. I did not get a badge on my Settings App on my iP6S+ or my iPad Air 2. :confused: Weird!

Anyhow, YAY!!!! :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

I'm downloading and installing right now!

Oh I'm so happy to get these new emoji's (y) yeah, and the other stuff too! LOL!!!

Just updated to 9.1. The copy bug in Safari on certain websites was not fixed. I reported the bug to Apple, but they failed to fix it in 9.1. Also, while we can now disable contact photos in messaging, you are still forced to see photos or initials on the lock screen when on a call. I don't use contact photos and the initials irritate the hell out of me. We have hundreds of worthless emojis, but we still don't have facepalm and fingers crossed. I'm going to test FaceTime Audio tonight and see if Bluetooth is still broken (the audio you send out is currently too terrible to use over Bluetooth). If that's not fixed, it's a worthless update for me.

EDIT: The audio you send out on FaceTime Audio still sounds terrible if you use Bluetooth.

Overall I find 9.1 runs a little more smoothly on my 6s Plus. I have not experienced any of the bugs reported here, but then I haven't used the features causing the problems.

I've been waiting for a middle finger one for the longest time.

Also 47seijar do you notice any problems with the auto rotate getting stuck? Like in my other thread with the 9.1?

Would using a black or white image for a contact photo be perhaps less irritating? Or maybe a pic of a phone?

I'm updating to iOS 9.1 right now via iTunes. It's a 2.22 GB download for an iPhone 6s Plus.

For some reason unbeknownst to me, the download speed is quite slow. I ran a speedtest—with the software download is in progress—and my speeds are just fine.

I guess everyone just decided to download the iOS 9.1 update, over 24 hours after its release, at precisely the time I chose to do it. :D

No biggie, all worth it to get those taco and middle finger emojis.

Download speeds also depend on the host server.
