Apple’s iOS 9.2.1 update continues its reign as the most current version of iOS for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. The update is small but its had a big impact on performance. We’ve been using the update for more than three weeks now and today we want to take an updated look at the iOS 9.2.1 update.
The iOS 9.2.1 update was originally confirmed all the way back in December shortly after the release of the iOS 9.2 update for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. The release was confirmed via a beta for developers and the general public.
On January 19th, Apple took the iOS 9.2.1 update out of beta and released it for iPhones, iPads and iPod touches around the world.
iOS 9.2.1 isn’t a big update. Instead of a long list of features it comes with a short list of bug fixes and security patches. It’s not the most exciting update but for many people, its had an impact on device performance.
As we push away from its release date, it’s important to keep an eye on the iOS 9.2.1 update, its performance and some of the smaller details. This roundup is going to look at those details and take an updated look at iOS 9.2.1’s performance.
If you’re just now finding the iOS 9.2.1 update or if you’ve been on iOS 9.2.1 for 28 days like we have, you should find something useful in here.
iOS 9.2.1 Review: A Month Later
1 / 5
We've been digging into several iOS 9.2.1 updates for a month now. (28 days if you're counting.) The list includes the iPhone 6s iOS 9.2.1 update, the iPhone 6 iOS 9.2.1 update, the iPhone 5 iOS 9.2.1 update, and a trio of iPad updates (iPad Air 2, iPad Air, iPad mini 2).
We recently went into detail about this collection of iOS 9.2.1 updates with some feedback at the two week milestone and today we want to share some feedback at the month mark.
- Battery life is still excellent across all of these devices.
- The iPhone 5 is still very fast.
- We continue to see lag in some areas on the iPad mini 2.
- Connectivity is stable on all of these iPhones & iPads.
- We haven't run into any experience-breaking bugs or problems except for the lingering iPhone 6s battery percentage bug and that 1970 bug that we haven't tried.
Our iOS 9.2.1 review covers all of these upgrades and it looks at key areas like battery life, connectivity, UI speed, and more.
