Perhaps unsurprisingly, there is nothing too exciting in the latest iOS 9.2.1 update that just became available today.
The update brings “security updates and bug fixes including a fix for an issue that could prevent the completion of app installation when using an MDM (Mobile Device Management) server.” The update is available for devices supporting iOS 9 in the Settings app as an over-the-air update, or through iTunes.
The beta version of iOS 9.2.1 was released in the middle of December, and Apple announced a preview of features in iOS 9.3, for which the beta was initiated in the beginning of January.
You can look forward to iOS 9.3 though, which is set to be released in the coming months and will introduce “Night Shift,” a mode that alters your iPhone or iPad’s screen so that less blue light is emitted and which, as a result, will not disrupt your ability to fall asleep. iOS 9.3 will also focus on education, and will feature a new Classroom app that will allow teachers to guide their students through lessons, and will enable them to see what their students are doing on their shared iPads via Screen View.
You’ll also soon be able to set a password or a fingerprint lock to protect your notes, and the News app will have more personalized stories, tailored to you. Perhaps the biggest announcement to come alongside iOS 9.3 was watchOS 2.2, which will let you pair more than one Apple Watch to your iPhone.
If you’re on an iOS 9-supported device, head on over to the Settings app and check under the Software Updates section to grab 9.2.1.
