It Sunday today, which means it’s time to tell you about the most interesting articles of the past seven days. Most of these posts deal with Apple’s iOS 9 and its bugs, new iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus and the worldwide Mac sales. There are also several articles that tell us about the new releases of iOS 9.1 and OS X 10.11.1 El Capitan, however, if you are not a developer, this is not very important to you. What is important, though, is that soon we may see the jailbreak of iOS 8.4.1.
Apple’s iOS 9 is quite a glitchy update. In addition to the issues with 3D Touch, speakers, power and Touch ID on a wide number of iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus units and the ‘Slide to Upgrade’ bug making compatible iPhones and iPads useless bricks that can be restored only in the DFU mode, the latest version of Apple’s mobile operating system is reported to be the reason for various problems with POP email accounts and opening attachments added to the emails. Even though Apple has already released two updates, namely, iOS 9.0.1 and iOS 9.0.2, the problem is still present and the number of users facing it continues to rise steadily from day to day.
Apple CEO Tim Cook has earlier today sent an email to employees to commemorate Apple co-founder and former CEO Steve Jobs, who passed away four years ago. The internal company email has been obtained by The Telegraph reporters and then reposted by a number of tech websites across the world. It is currently unclear how the email sent to employees has become available for public.
As you know, both iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are equipped with 2GB of RAM. Even though the edition of an extra gigabyte of RAM seems to be quite inconspicuous while navigating through the menu of new phones, opening default apps and using basic features like calling, sending messages or reading emails, in fact this additional gigabyte of memory completely changes the way you browse in Safari. Literally.

Apple has finally released watchOS 2.0 to Apple Watch users worldwide. The update was expected to become available to public on September 16th, however, Apple found a major bug in the software that delayed the release.

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella has recently called Apple’s iPhone with a number of Microsoft apps on board an 'iPhone Pro'.

Apple has recently begun contacting some Apple TV customers via email in order to inform them about a faulty part inside of their set-top boxes. The guys from Cupertino offer a free replacement for all the faulty units owners. Apple representatives contacting people don’t specify what part is defective.

If you have recently purchased a new Apple TV, check your mailbox for the letter from Apple.
Apart from seeding iOS 9 Beta 4 to testers, the guys from Cupertino have recently made the fourth pre-release build of OS X 10.11 El Capitan available for registered members of the program for developers.
