Last week, Apple released an iPhone 6 iOS 9.2 update in beta form. In the days since the release, we’ve seen some details emerge and today we want to take a look at everything iPhone 6 users need to know about their next big update.
iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus users have been treated to a number of iOS 9 updates since mid-September. The first, iOS 9.0, delivered the company’s new operating system and all of its enhancements. iOS 9.0 lasted only a few days before Apple replaced it with iOS 9.0.1, a small bug fixer.
A week after that, Apple delivered iOS 9.0.2 and some additional bug fixes. And then a few weeks later, the company rolled out the iOS 9.1 update that’s currently available for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus models around the world. iOS 9.1 won’t be around forever either.
In fact, Apple’s already confirmed a new iOS 9 upgrade for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The iOS 9.2 update rolled out last week and like iOS 9.1, it will be coming with a mixture of new features and fixes for the former flagship devices.
As we push further away from the initial iOS 9.2 beta release date, we’re starting to learn more and more about the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus iOS 9.2 updates. It’s still early in the process but we can learn a lot from a single beta update.
With that in mind, we want to take you through the important things to know, right now, about the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus iOS 9.2 updates.
Keep all of these things in mind as we push into the month of November towards an unknown iOS 9.2 release date.
iPhone 6 iOS 9.2 Performance
As we push away from the iOS 9.2 beta release, we're starting to get more feedback from those testing the first version of the iOS 9.2 update. And so far, it looks like results are mixed.
While some iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus users are saying that the iOS 9.2 update is excellent in key areas like UI speed, others are complaining about lag and other problems.
Developers and beta testers have outlined a number of bugs plaguing the iOS 9.2 update right now. These problems include issues with iCloud Keychain, the App Switcher, problems with Messages, battery life issues, problems with connectivity, and more.
There's a good chance most of these problems will get fixed in upcoming betas. This is what the beta process is for. That said, keep these problems in mind before you go and download the iOS 9.2 beta on your iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus.
Some of you will be better off watching the iOS 9.2 update, and its progress, from the sidelines.
