Apple has released its iOS 9.2.1 and from the surface it looks like a usual update without new features, as the company focused more on bug fixes. So, is it worth updating to iOS 9.2.1 or you should wait longer?
The iOS 9.2.1 is currently compatible with the iPad 2 or later, iPad Mini or later, iPhone 4S or later, 5th generation of iPod touch or later and iPad Pro. The iOS 9.2.1 update has 40MB and it should prompt users to upgrade it automatically.
Keep in mind that you will need to be connected to a Wi-Fi network, as Apple is still not allowing you to make iOS updates via the mobile data from your carrier. If you haven’t received an automatic upgrade notification, you will be able to manually check for it by going to your device’s Settings->General->Software Update.
According to Apple, the iOS 9.2.1 comes with many security updates and bug fixes, which also includes a fix for that could prevent the completion of app installation when using an MDM (Mobile Device Management) server.
Apple said that the iOS 9.2.1 fixes multiple memory corruption flaws, security vulnerabilities and other issues that allowed the placement of cookies to compromise your device.
Unfortunately, the iOS 9.2.1 is not yet fixing the ongoing battery level bug. Apple has confirmed this issue last week, but according to many users, this issue was present more than four months ago and that Apple Tech support was promising a bug fix for this since the iOS 9.0.2 was released.
For some reasons, the new iOS 9.2.1 is stopping contacts sync, causing some glitches in the Apple Music application and also the iMessage and SMS applications are crashing out of the sudden. However, these issues appear to be extremely rare and there are very few reports about them.
Likewise the iOS 9.2, the iOS 9.2.1 has no jailbreak, which means that the jailbreak fans will have to wait a bit more until this version will be hacked.
