Apple Issues Bug Fixes for iOS 9

Apple has issued the first update to its iOS 9 mobile device software to fix some early glitches, including one bug that froze the device on the "slide to update" screen.

The repairs, released today, addressed a handful of bugs, including a problem with alarms and timers that failed to go off and another that distorted the frame of a paused video.

Apple had taken extraordinary measures to make sure this version of the software that operates iPhones and iPads was as glitch-free as possible, following last year's problematic launch of iOS 8. The Cupertino technology company said more than half of its users had downloaded iOS 9.

Over the weekend, Apple quietly published a support document helping consumers whose devices had gotten stuck on upgrade. That document was updated today.
