Credit where credit’s due, Apple AAPL +1.74% has been uncharacteristically forthcoming about the myriad of iOS 9 bugs since its release in September. Now with the launch of iOS 9.1 Apple has again gone on record with revelations which show just how troubled the software has been…

In contrast to Apple’s past tradition of sliding in crucial bug fixes and hoping no-one notices, iOS 9.1 spells them out:

  • Fixes an issue that could cause Calendar to become unresponsive in Month view
  • Fixes an issue that prevented Game Center from launching for some users
  • Resolves an issue that zoomed the content of some apps
  • Resolves an issue that could cause an incorrect unread mail count for POP mail accounts
  • Fixes an issue that prevented users from removing recent contacts from new mail or messages
  • Fixes an issue that caused some messages to not appear in Mail search results
  • Resolves an issue that left a gray bar in the body of an Audio Message
  • Fixes an issue that caused activation errors on some carriers
  • Fixes an issue that prevented some apps from updating from the App Store
  • Improved stability including CarPlay, Music, Photos, Safari, and Search
  • Improved performance while in Multitasking UI

In short that’s problems with: Calendar, Game Center, app updating, app content, messaging, carrier data and email viewing, downloading, sending and search. In addition to this there’s recognition that CarPlay, Music, Photos, Safari, and Search have been unstable and multitasking sluggish.
