Apple has finally released the latest version of its mobile operating system, but it looks as if the roll out has run into some early problems.

Users excited to get their hands on iOS 9 on the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch have become frustrated when their attempts to download the update are met with error messages. In theory, users of Apple devices should be able to update their operating system by accessing the Settings menu, hitting the General tab and selecting software update, or by connecting their device to iTunes.

Consumers report how Apple iOS 9 software update failed

Many have been disappointed by the failure of the standard upgrade process, which was supposed to be hassle free. Apple made a big deal about the improved efficiency of the update, which requires just 1.3 GB of free space on the device.

Apple users have previously complained about updates taking up huge amounts of disk space, but they would surely prefer an update which actually works. Some have taken to social media to post photos of the error message received when they attempt the download iOS 9, in what could be an embarrassing day for the tech giant.

iOS 9 update error

Those hoping for widespread visual changes will be disappointed as iOS 9 is generally similar in feel to previous editions, but the major improvements come in terms of stability. A new font, known as San Francisco, has been introduced, a new app switcher promises to improve the user experience, and improvements have been made to the Siri personal assistant, but Apple admits that efficiency tweaks were the main focus.

User experience set to improve with iOS 9

iPad users will now be able to run two apps at once with the split-screen multi-tasking view, bringing Apple up to date with Samsung and Microsoft tablets, while the new News app offers a more efficient way of gathering content.

Individually the changes may not seem groundbreaking, but they do offer a window into Apple’s future plans for computing. That is assuming that users can even get their hands on the update.

It is thought that the failure of the update is due to heavy traffic on Apple’s servers, with millions of users trying to download iOS 9 at the same time. Keep trying throughout the day to see if Apple has fixed the problem.
