The software is packed full of new features and refinements, adding tremendous value to the user experience on Apple’s supported iPhone and iPad devices.

Some app crashes are inevitable, of course, since many developers have failed to update their apps in time for the update. Compared to earlier iOS updates in the recent past, however, iOS 9 is smooth sailing.
