According to the latest data shared by Apple, the adoption rate of iOS 9 has recently reached 67%. The data is based on the App Store usage and reflects the number of active iPhone, iPad and iPod touch owners accessing the store to download applications and use Apple services.

Earlier this week, Apple has released iOS 9.1 with over 150 new emojis, improvements to Live Photos and bug fixes to users worldwide.

All these things allow Apple to finally focus its attention on the development of the next version of iOS, which is iOS 9.2.
Apple has just released iOS 9.1 to users worldwide. The release comes about a month after the release of iOS 9, which could boast of a wide number of under-the-hood improvements, bug fixes and new features for the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, iPad mini 4 and iPad Pro as well as for other compatible devices.
iOS 9.1 brings over 150 new emojis to Apple devices and contains improvements for Live Photos that make it easier to capture beautiful images using the iPhone 6s or 6s Plus.
As it was already mentioned on our website, the Pangu team has recently released the untethered jailbreak of iOS 9. Below you will find the instructions for your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch running iOS 9, iOS 9.0.1 and iOS 9.0.2. Note you will need a Windows computer to jailbreak your device.
Apart from releasing iOS 9.0.2 and OS X 10.11 El Capitan to users worldwide, Apple has recently seeded the third beta of iOS 9.1 to developers for testing. The very first testing build of iOS 9.1 was released three weeks ago and could boast of a wide number of performance and stability improvements and bug fixes.
According to Apple’s latest press-release devoted to the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus pre-sales and retail stores availability, the recently-released iOS 9 is now installed on more that 50% of active devices. Even though iOS 9 bricked a wide number of iPhones and iPads and caused a number of compatibility and performance issues, its adoption rate is close to setting up a new record.
According to the latest report citing Apple’s supply chain sources, the iPhone 6s Plus is currently constrained because of faulty backlight modules. As noted by usually-reliable KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Japanese supplier Minebea has faced some manufacturing difficulties resulting in limited supply of the new handset. To resolve the problem, Apple is reportedly transferring orders to another supplier called Radiant, that is expected to see a 70-80% increase in orders in September. It appears that Radiant is more experienced in the production of backlight modules for large-screen devices.
