9 Things to Do Before Installing iOS 9.2.1



Before you download and install the iOS 9.2.1 update, take a look at these tips that outline what we do before we install new iOS software on the iPhone and iPad.

In December, Apple rolled out an iOS 9.2.1 beta for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Developers and testers who downloaded the beta failed to discover any significant changes on board the update, a sign that the iOS 9.2.1 update would be a small bug fixer for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

In January, after several weeks in beta, Apple’s pushed the iOS 9.2.1 update to iOS 9 users around the world. It’s not a major update but you should still prepare your device, and yourself, for the iOS 9.2.1 download.

The iOS 9.2.1 update is small but important. It doesn’t deliver any big time features but it does come with bug fixes and security enhancements.

It’s a tempting update but you must remember that iOS updates, even small ones, can cause big problems on the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. And that’s why you’ll want to be prepared.

Here, we outline the process that we use when incremental updates like iOS 9.2.1 arrive. If this is your first iOS update or you want to ensure a smooth transition from whatever you’re on to iOS 9.2.1, follow this guide.

Get Familiar With iOS 9.2.1

Before you install iOS 9.2.1, get familiar with the update and the changes it brings to the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

Because this is a small incremental update, it doesn't bring a whole lot to the table but that doesn't mean you can or should install the update blindly. 

The iOS 9.2.1 update comes with "security updates and bug fixes including a fix for an issue that could prevent the completion of app installation when using an MDM server." For more on what the fix for MDM means, see Apple's website.

If you're coming from a version of iOS not called iOS 9.2, you're also going to get the changes that came on board the iOS 9.2 update so it could be wise to get familiar with those features as well. If you're coming from something older than iOS 9, do the same.
