Apple releases new iOS fix after rocky rollout

Frustrated Apple users asked, and the tech giant has answered.

Apple on Wednesday released a fix for its recent iOS 9 update. Small issues with alarms and timers, the Safari browser and other features had given some users fits on the software's release last week.

Problems with the rollout, which left some users unable to download it, happened around the same time that Apple had to temporarily delay the launch of a new operating system for its Apple Watch due to a glitch.

The fix also comes two days before Apple's next generation iPhones, the 6s and 6s Plus, are slated to go on sale in U.S. retail stores. On Monday, Apple said that users had adopted iOS 9 more quickly than any previous version, with more than 50 percent of devices already using it.
