iOS 9.2.1 update released for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch

Apple today released iOS 9.2.1 update for all the compatible iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch devices. The update comes few weeks after the release of iOS 9.2 and brings some security updates and bug fixes.

iOS 9.2.1 is the first bug fix update since the release of iOS 9.2 in December 2015. The update addresses some of the memory corruption issues and improves WebKit performance as well as prevents instances of malicious access through the Web. However, there is no fix for the battery percentage indicator issue that recently emerged on the new iPhone models.

Apart from the security updates and bug fixes, the new iOS version fixes an issue that prevented some of the users in completing app installation process through an MDM (Mobile Device Management) server.

You can install iOS 9.2.1 update on any of the compatible Apple device, including the iPhone 4s or later, the iPad 2 or later, the iPad mini and above, the iPad Pro and the fifth- and sixth-generation iPod Touch. The update is sized around 40MB, depending on the device model.

The update can be downloaded either as an over-the-air (OTA) download or through the latest iTunes version on Windows or Mac. You can manually check its availability by going to ‘Software Update’ option from ‘General’ settings of your device.

Earlier this month, Apple announced iOS 9.3 as the next big iteration after iOS 9.2. The new iOS version has features like Night Shift and some updates to existing apps such as News, Health and an improved CarPlay integration. The Cupertino giant has also added Apple School app for iPad users and there is WatchOS 2.2 to enable connection with multiple Apple Watches.

Public beta of iOS 9.3 went live last week but the final release would go through some beta versions in the coming future.
