Wait to Update to iOS 9
We’re loving the new iOS 9 features but you may want to wait a while before you update. Since the original release of the new operating system from Apple on September 16, an update to fix “minor bugs” was released on September 23 with iOS 9.0.1. Yet, Forbes is reporting there are still some vulnerabilities. Perhaps Apple will release another “bug fix” update or we may have to wait until iOS 9.1 which may be weeks away.
MamaBear customers may also be experiencing an app crash if already updated to iOS 9. We’ll have an app update available in the next couple of weeks to patch up any issues regardless of your operating system version.
If you’ve already updated or plan to soon, be careful with the Wi-Fi Assist feature. It automatically allows your phone to download data via your cellular plan when Wi-Fi coverage isn’t great. This feature is rather helpful, particularly for apps like MamaBear needing the connectivity to provide you reliable information, but it could eat up your data. Read more at USA Today.
Our recommendation for now is to wait to update.
