iPhone 6 iOS 9.2 Update Review
We've been using the iPhone 6 iOS 9.2 update on several iPhone 6 variants for two weeks now and the update continues to perform at a high level.
We've most of December with the iPhone 6s iOS 9.2 update and we haven't run into any problems with battery life. The company's flagship from 2014 is still holding a solid charge when in use and when it's in standby mode. We've been able to get about 7-8 hours of use out of it when using a mixture of Wi-Fi and LTE. That's standard for us.
Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and LTE speeds are still fast and reliable. App performance post-iOS 9.2 release has been top notch. Even problem apps like Twitter, Facebook and Chrome have been behaving on the iPhone 6.
And for those curious about UI speed, the phone is still extremely fast with iOS 9.2 on board. We haven't noticed any weird lag or stuttering when pulling up Control Center, opening up folders, or using the iOS 9 keyboard.
From where we're standing, the iOS 9.2 appears to be an excellent update and one worthy of your attention if you're on iOS 9 or iOS 8. iOS 8 users will want to be a little more careful because there's no going back once you get iOS 9 on board your phone.
