Apple Seeds First Beta of iOS 9.2.1 to Developers

Apple today seeded the first beta of an upcoming iOS 9.2.1 update to developers for testing purposes, just over a week after the public release of iOS 9.2. iOS 9.2, the second major update to iOS 9, introduced a very long list of bug fixes, along with feature improvements to Apple Music, News, Mail, iBooks, and more.

The iOS 9.2.1 beta is available for download immediately from the Apple Developer Center, and a public beta will likely be available in the near future.

We don't know what changes iOS 9.2.1 will bring to iOS 9, but as a minor .1 update, it's likely to focus on performance improvements and fixes for bugs that have been discovered since the release of iOS 9.2. We will update this post with any changes that are discovered in the latest beta.

Update: Apple today published a support document addressing some issues with Mobile Device Management on iOS 9.2. When installing an app on iOS 9.2, some apps don't finish the full installation process.

According to the support document, a bug fix is coming in the near future, and it's likely the iOS 9.2.1 update resolves the problem.

The way you get less bugs is more updates.


That's what the updates are for.


Nope, you get less bugs, by having better software development, better testing, and realistic schedules that promote bug free releases. Yes, I realize that the fashion these days is to just accept that all software has bugs. Well who cares if the software has a few bugs, most people just tweet and listen to tunes. In the end software is just not that important to get right the first time anymore. What is important is to make the marketing department happy. Who really cares that things just don't work quite right, for simpletons it just takes another ad to fix it.

You don't get quality unless you expect quality. Thinking that lots of updates means the process is working well is just not very well thought through.

I'd rather have less bugs than more updates.

Apple should remove these pesky pop-ups warning you are not connected to a network.
Or provide a way to turn them of, I can tell myself if I am on a (WIFI) network or not just by looking if the WIFI icon is there.
Bit like Windows, and I hate windows.

It's always great to have a beta version of iOS on deck in case of crippling bugs in the released version that might be fixed. :rolleyes:

I can only assume you think you're being clever. I can assure that I you're not.
