On January 19, Apple has released 9.2.1 and according to the change log, it brought many bug fixes, but also bugs of its own, which will be also fixed once iOS 9.3 will be available for iPhones, iPads and iPod Touch. We’ve made a list with the most annoying issues in iOS 9.2.1 which, fortunately, have solutions.
If you haven’t updated you device yet to iOS 9.2.1, then you should go to Go to Settings > General, then tap on Software Update. The update servers will be pinged and the update will become available for download. The other method to install iOS 9.2.1 is by downloading it to your computer, from iTunes, then copying the file to your phone.
How To Extend The Battery Life
Every time you install a new OS update, the battery problems seem to return, which can be quite frustrating. It seems that iOS 9.2.1 is not exempted from this issue, and many iPhone users have complained that their batteries are draining faster than before. We suggest them to factory reset their phones and set them up as a new device.
Date Brick Bug
The users who accidentally set the date to January 1, 1970 managed to brick their devices due to a severe bug. While some phones were temporarily bricked, others suffered a permanent brick and the panicked users complained on forums about this problem. Fortunately, Apple has reacted fast and released a new version of iOS 9.2.1 with a fix for this issue.
Keyboard Lag Problems
In iOS 9.2.1 was fixed an issue with Safari, but it seems that it brought a keyboard lag issue on the iPad Pro tablet, but not all users have been affected by it. Only those who used third-party, approved keyboards noticed a lag when they’re typing. The only solution for this problem is to install the second beta of iOS 9.3.
A Safari Issue Still Exists
Apple’s browser and Notes, which is connected with Safari, continue to have the same issue. The users who want to save a website to Notes app and hit the Safari share button will notice a duplicate note in a Spotlight search. Also, after a while, Safari bookmark search stops working and the only found solution to both problems is to reboot the device.
Error 53 Brick Issue Is Gone
The users who repaired their devices in unauthorized repair centers and installed a recent iOS update have bricked their iPhones and iPads. Luckily, the latest iOS 9.2.1 update came with a solution to this problem.
