10 Things to Know About the iPhone 6 iOS 9.2.1 Update

The iPhone 6 iOS 9.2.1 update is old but it’s still relevant and today we want to take a look at the most important things you need to know about the company’s iPhone 6 iOS 9.2.1 release.

The iPhone 6’s iOS 9.2.1 update was originally confirmed in mid-December. In mid-January, Apple deemed iOS 9.2.1 worthy of public consumption and released for the iPhone 6 and its other iOS 9 powered devices.

If you own an iPhone 6 and you’re on iOS 9.2, you’ll find the iOS 9.2.1 update lurking in your Settings or in iTunes. It’s a small update but there’s a lot you need to know about it.

The iPhone 6 iOS 9.2.1 update isn’t as big as the iOS 9.1 or iOS 9.2 updates that came before it but it’s still an important upgrade for the aging former flagship smartphone. It might not deliver new features but it does bring bug fixes and security patches.

Now that we’re a few months removed from the iOS 9.2.1 release date we want to take a look at the iPhone 6’s update.

This roundup features details about its performance, about the iOS 9.2.1 jailbreak, and some news about the update that could replace iOS 9.2.1 down the road.

iPhone 6 iOS 9.2.1 Review

We've been using the iPhone 6 iOS 9.2.1 update since its release in January and we recently published our final thoughts on its performance.

We've been using the iPhone 6's latest update for two months now and we still haven't seen a drastic change in performance. The update is still performing at a high level.

The iPhone 6's battery life is outstanding, connectivity is strong and reliable, our core applications are behaving, and the iPhone 6 is still very fast. We haven't seen any lag when using Control Center, Notifications or Spotlight. 

More importantly, we haven't encountered any experience-breaking issues. It feels very stable on the 4.7-inch model. (Note, we've been testing the update on AT&T and Verizon models.)

At this point, we still recommend it to those of you coming from iOS 9.2. It probably won't be a boon for performance but it does come with some important fixes for Enterprise users and security patches to help protect the iPhone 6.

If you're coming from something older than iOS 9.2, say iOS 8.4.1, you'll want to be a little more careful. For us, this is a very stable version of iOS 9 but mileage always varies.

    This is such a cookie-cutter article that is trotted out with every update. And why make the lack of being able to jail-break the update an issue, especially since jail-breaking a phone is used by such a small number of users.

      Agreed. The article is of little value.

      Jail breaking is actually used by a rather large number of users. There is a reason why they hold world wide jailbreak expos. Furthermore, if you don’t like the articles, don’t read them. Don’t slander people for writing articles. You took the time to come here and read it, I don’t see you writing any.

      Lastly,
      Do some research on jail breaking before trying to prove whatever point it was you were trying to come across.

    Thank you for a thoroughly pointless and news-free article.

    there is a newer build of iOS 9.2.1, its 13d20. it fixes the error that comes up if you replace the touch id sensor
    at a third party repair place. you need to get the small update from iTunes ( and not software update ) if you want it.
