iOS 9.2 update

Apple has released the second major update to the iOS 9 operating system. It’s called iOS 9.2 and was known to be under development since October. Finally now the end users are experiencing it in full glory.

iOS 9.2 release is available as an over-the-air update to all iOS 9 users. Though it is the second major update, iOS 9.2 is actually the fourth update to iOS 9 in total, following the launches of iOS 9.0.1, iOS 9.0.2, iOS 9.1


The update includes a great number of bug fixes. Major ones have to do with Apple Music, Mail, News and iBook enhancements. When it comes to Apple Music, you now can create a new playlist when adding a song and your most recently changes playlist will always appear at the top when you are adding new ones which makes it pretty handy. Also, you can download albums or playlists from your iCloud Music Library by tapping the iCloud download button and see which has been downloaded with a new indicator next to each song in My Music and Playlists.

As for Mail, the nice improvement is the ability to send large attachments by means of using Mail Drop feature.

iBooks supports 3D Touch to "peek and pop pages from the table of contents, your notes and bookmarks, or from search results inside a book". The app has also been updated to “support listening to an audiobook while you browse your library, read other books, or explore the iBooks Store”.

News have a nice new feature too - Top Stories section, with the most important news of the day.

The Safari View Controller has also been updated with the ability to long tap on the Reload button to reload content without content blockers and it now supports the request desktop site function and an edge swipe to dismiss the Safari window. 

(For USA only)It also includes support for AT&T's NumberSync Wi-Fi calling feature, allowing AT&T users to accept calls on any device even when their phone is not nearby.

Finally, in case you’re using an iPhone and haven’t got the update yet, just go to Settings > General > Software Update.
