 After using the iPhone 6s Plsu iOS 9.2 update for almost a week this is certainly a good upgrade overall, but during the weekend we ran into a frustrating issue. 

On the whole iOS 9.2 is solid, but twice this weekend the iPhone 6s Plus screen was unresponsive to touch for several minutes. If you wait for a few minutes it will work again, but otherwise you need to hold the home and power button to force restart the device.
