Apple has rolled out the iOS 9.2 update, bringing a raft of new features and fixes to users’ iPhone and iPad devices.
The latest patch for the company’s fleet of mobile devices, the iOS 9.2 update sees Apple Music improvements introduced, including tweaks to how you make playlists and save songs online, the addition of new Siri languages, and a number of mail fixes.
It should also stop your alarms being cut off every time you update your phone. Handy.
The full list of new iOS 9.2 features and fixes includes:
- Apple Music improvements for making playlists, saving songs offline, and browsing classical music
- A new Top Stories section in News so you can stay up to date with the most important news of the day
- Mail Drop in Mail for sending large attachments
- iBooks now supports 3D Touch to peek and pop pages from the table of contents, your notes and bookmarks, or from search results inside a book
- iPhone support for the USB Camera Adapter to import photos and videos
- Siri support for Arabic (Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates)
- Fixes an issue that caused mail attachments to be inaccessible for some users with POP email accounts
- Resolves an issue for some users that caused attachments to overlap text in mail
- Addresses an issue where updating iOS could prevent an alarm from going off
- Fixes an issue where Live Photos could have turned off after restoring from a previous iCloud backup
- Fixes an issue where camera screen on iPad could be black when attempting to capture video
- Additional bug fixes and stability improvements
The iOS 9.2 patch is available as a free update now for all iPhone owners from the 4S onwards – including the new iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus – as well as those running all but the original iPad.
Sadly, unlike October’s iOS 9.1 update, the latest software rollout isn’t bringing any new emoji with it.
To download the new iOS 9.2 update on your compatible iPhone or iPad, go to Settings>>General>>Software Update. The update should be ready there for download.
