Today is the day iOS 9 goes official. Today is the day the iOS 9 update will start hitting iPhones across the United States, and we got our hands on a state by state schedule that comes from Apple. The iOS 9 update is a pretty hot topic right now, as people are skeptical about the improvements that Apple did or didn’t include in the update. Most notably, people are cracking jokes about battery life and emojis, complaining that there isn’t a newmiddle finger emoji and that their iPhones won’t be happy with the battery life after the update.
The iPhone 6 battery life should not be impacted by the iOS 9 update, but you never know when it comes to Apple. Although you should be ready for bad battery life over the next couple of days after installing the update, Apple is convinced that iOS 9 will not impact battery life negatively.
