installing ios updates:

iOS and iPadOS

I am using an iphone6+ ios 8.4 version.
When I check settings it says I have one update available. The available update is ios 9.0.2. Why does it not show 9.1?
It says ios 9.0.2 is downloaded but I do not get an install button. Why not?
I didn't think I had to update with 9.0. If I do need to do this before ios 9.1 will show, how is this done? If I need to install ios 9.0.2 before ios 9.1 will display as being available, how do I do this?

I think the reason why it's not showing iOS 9.1 is because you probably have to update to iOS 9.0.2 first.

Currently, your phone has downloaded 9.0.2 and awaiting installation thus it cannot check for further updates. IF your phone did not download the 9.0.2, it would check for updates and find the 9.1.

If you want to update to 9.1, you can do one of two things. Use the update on the phone to install 9.0.2 then it will check for updates and prompt you to install 9.1. Or you can connect your phone to your PC and iTUnes will tell you IOS 9.1 is available and ask if you want to update.

As far as not finding the install button, swiping left or right doesn’t work. You need to explore around the lower part of the screen. Keep tapping the different parts of the screen until you hear VO say install button.

FYI, you can jump from any older version of the IOS to the latest without INSTALING THE VERSIONS IN BETWEEN.

Thanks David And Isaac. Ios 9.1 showed up after I powered down and then powered up again. I was able to find the download and install button. I am now downloading and installing ios 9.1. Again my thanks.
