First traces of iOS 9.1 appear, when iOS 9 has not yet been released to the public

iOS 9 has not been released to the public yet and we don’t know what the first version 9.0.0 will lack, but Apple is already working on iOS 9.1. We know that we will see iOS 9 in September, and that maybe the first update will come in October, with iOS 9.1 .

This is what they have discovered in MacRumors, since in their Analytics services they have traces of devices with the IPs that come from Apple and that have iOS 9.1 installed as their operating system. It was during two weeks in July when the traffic was more intense, but even today they still receive some visits .

By all accounts, the majority of devices visiting their website were in iPad or iPad mini resolutions, while the rest were in iPhone 6 Plus resolution. It is not possible to know if these visits were from newly-invoiced devices or those currently on sale , as the statistics provided by Google for websites do not give as many details. But it could be that they were iPhone 6s Plus or iPad mini 4 and iPad Air 3.

We don’t know what’s new in iOS 9.1, but if it were a simple bug fix we would be talking about iOS 9.0.1 . So it could be a version that brings some kind of new features, like the Force Touch on the iPhone 6s when it is released to the stores, or new features for the iPad Pro. However, no higher than normal iPad devices were seen visiting the websites.

With a little memory, iPads are usually released in October or November, in a separate event from the iPhones that are released in September . This year the rumors are a bit more confusing and talk about both an iPad mini along with the iPhones, and the delay of the iPad Air until 2016 because Apple has nothing interesting to offer.

Speaking of the iPad Pro, although it’s not clear when we’ll finally see it, its features are clearer , such as a larger screen with Force Touch, a stylus , and a USB-C port like the one on the MacBook to be compatible with multiple external accessories.
