back to article Apple slings bug-fixed iOS 9.0.1 at fanbois, PIN bypass hole still open

Apple has released an update to address several bugs spotted in its iOS 9 mobile operating system. iOS version 9.0.1 aims to fix, among other things, an installation problem that stopped fans from upgrading from iOS 7: their devices froze on the "slide to upgrade" screen. Other fixes in the update correct a problem that was …

    A coherent and useful article involving Apple.

    Perhaps there is hope for the Register.

    Well done Sir.

      A good number of us use Apple products. But that doesn't stop us taking the piss out of them.

        The very fact you replied suggests the need to address the problem.

        Perhaps the staff should understand the concept of impartiality, by all means make fun of Apple, its your rag, but do it to the same degree to the others.

    Found another issue after installing 9.0.1 ...

    Open an app that's not running and the screen goes blank.

    You can tell it's not crashed as the notification area can be slid down. Have to press the "home" key and reopen the app to get it working. However, even this doesn't fix the problem for at least one of my apps.

    Rebooting the phone restores normal operation, but looking at the web seems to show this is only a temporary fix.

    I was ready to upgrade my iPhone, now I am not so sure

    It might not be an Apple in my future.

    It's quite laughable, since iOS 4 or 5, it seems that (virtually) any vaguely major release of the product is unable to cope with alarms (and/or daylight saving time change). We had the don't ring, ring an hour earlier, an hour late, 12 hours late, only when repeated, only on weekdays variations.

    So seriously, especially now they entered the watch market (even if the wrist appendage is probably not used to read time), shouldn't Apple be on the market to buy an alarm software that works for a few £100m?

    Might there be some Apple users that are only users, and not also "fans"?

    Just asking.

      I for one am a user, and not a fanboi, by any means. I was given an iPhone by my company as it their standard. I have to use it to access certain company functions and company email.

      I dislike a lot of what Apple does, often they make things difficult for the users. For instance, this upgrade to the iPhone...after the software is downloaded and installed, the iPhone reboots, you have enter ALL your passwords again, several times, all your apps have to be downloaded and reinstalled. It took over 24 hours for everything to be back up and running. Many of the apps just sat and said 'waiting'. With my Android, it took a few seconds to download the new update, a reboot, and everything is back online in just a few seconds. Somehow, Apple just can't seem to manage that.

      As far as the fanbois comments here, it is absolutely hilarious that they will brook no negative comments about Apple, but are gleeful when anything is said about the competition. You fanbois really need to take a step back. If something is a load of cr*p, it's a load of cr*p, no matter who makes it.
