iPad iOS 9.2.1 Review

iPad iOS 9.2.1 Review

We haven't spent time with every single iPad iOS 9.2.1 update but we've spent time with three of the most popular slates: The iPad Air 2, iPad Air and iPad mini 2. 

For the most part, these three iOS 9.2.1 updates remain dependable. We haven't encountered any problems with connectivity and we haven't run into any issues with battery life. Standby battery is still stong and we haven't noticed any weird drain while in use. All three are holding up nicely. 

The iPad Air 2 and iPad Air are still fast with iOS 9.2.1 on board. We haven't seen any sluggishness or slowdown and they feel as good as new. The iPad mini 2 is a different story.

We continue to see occasional lag when opening Control Center and we've seen an annoying amount of keyboard lag when shooting texts. iPad mini 2 keyboard lag has been an issue for us for several months now and we're hoping the iOS 9.3 update fixes it. 

Other than the keyboard and Control Center lag, the iPad mini 2's UI is good. Those are the only black eyes on the iOS 9.2.1 update. 

iPad Air 2 and iPad Air users should be fine installing iOS 9.2.1. Those of you with an iPad mini 2 might be better off waiting for the next iOS 9 update to arrive. Install at your own risk.

    My phone 6 plus on ATT updated and I immediately began having charging issues. I plug it in and the charge cycle simply cycles on and off. If it’s plugged in when I turn it off it cycles the phone back on and starts repeating the same cycle. (Charging “buzz buzz” / not charging / Charging “buzz buzz / repeats inadfinitum)

    I loaded IOS 9.2.1 onto my iPad Mini on 9 Feb 2016. I was not happy to see two new apps displayed: “Find iPhone” & “Find Friends”. I do not own an iPhone. I can not delete these new apps in the usual way or anyway so far.

      Find iPhone is for use with your iPad. I think it is a great app (I use it at least 1x a week). Lol

    i Phone 5 and 9.2.1. the battery drain is at least 5% per hour with the screen off. They say no additional battery drain, but that is hogwash. With any use at all it is gone in a few hours. Lots of complaints on this on the Apple site. Need a fix fast!!!!

    I have a brand new iPhone 6s loaded with iOS 9.2.1 I can’t control cell data usage on most of the apps I’ve added since they don’t even show up on the list of app switches … and since they don’t even show up on the list, I can’t enable cell data usage rendering them useless when away from my home WiFi.

    Totally rubbish and if I’d realised the storage issues it would impose on my iPhone 5c I would never have updated-I can’t use my camera and most apps now Very unhappy
