Problems updating itunes 9


01-May-2015 20:55

Resetting the device and clearing data hadn’t solved the problem, and while I don’t upgrade to the first version of any operating system, I figured 9.1 would be a decent test case.

Upgrading to i OS 9.1 was painless, though there were a few snags along the way.

Unfortunately, I didn’t think to grab a screen shot of the error — I was too busy watching a dead progress bar on my phone and praying to the Update Gods that I hadn’t just bricked it.

Fortunately, things restarted without incident after that.

The entire process (including clearing space, restarting the upgrade, and upgrading i Tunes) took about two hours.

I restored a backup of previous applications, notes, photos, and video once I had i OS 9.1 installed, which also added some additional time.

OS 9.0 had a fairly quick turnaround as well, particularly considering that Apple promised to evaluate its performance on a wider range of devices and has gradually increased the number of products that each OS runs on.

My own personal phone is an i Phone 5c that I bought in December, 2013.

Under i OS 9.1, characteristic keyboard “clicks” aren’t transmitted as quickly as they should be.

The keyboard problem, at least, can be solved by switching to a third-party application. It’s only a problem when typing on the keyboard, other audio, like Netflix or audio streaming, works perfectly.

Neither Swift Key nor Swype suffer from the same delay, Of the two, I’d recommend Swype — while it costs

Generally speaking, everything has “just worked,” and while I’m not going to run down an exhaustive list of every difference (especially not since I’m jumping to i OS 9.1 from i OS 7.1, not i OS 8), the changes and improvements I’ve seen thus far have improvements.

The i OS 9.1 update crashed halfway through the first time around.

.99, Swift Key slaps a banner across already-limited screen space begging you to give it full access to everything you type, and locks some of its more useful functions behind that particular permission. Still, keyboard and audio playback are both fairly basic functions; I’m surprised to see a phone stumbling over these issues as opposed to higher-level performance.

The Notes app received a major upgrade in i OS 9, but my old notes were rolled into the new application without incident.
