Discussion in 'iOS 9' started by Jukens, Dec 17, 2015.
Those with the public beta pofile, the 9.2.1 public beta OTA is showing up!
So, based on the bug fixes thread, it seems there are ZERO improvements with 9.2.1 yet there are more bugs than 9.2? Is that correct? Why download?
Anyone have an objective view? The other thread is just bickering.
people are too obsessed with the lag fad to even bother to look for anything else unfortunately.
Had a quick look through Settings, couldn't see anything new.
Agree that the bug fixes thread is getting tiring with the "lag" discussion. I can't see any lag anywhere on my iPhone 6.
I've seen it on my phone but a hard reset usually takes care of lag or stutter. Waiting on a consensus of wait til next beta build or go ahead and install.
Well 98% of whats on that thread are NOT 9.2.1 bugs. Some not even bugs and some carryovers from iOS 7 and 8 and 9. So that wiki is pretty useless currently as it does not show what 9.2.1 broke or fixed specifically. Who said ZERO improvements anyway? You think Apple is going to release a new version just to be doing it? One thing I saw mentioned elsewhere was the MDM issue for enterprise was addressed. A few posters have said performance seems to have been tweaked. But I would not expect a lot from a x.x.1 update anyway. However ANY improvements or security fixes make it worth the 5 minutes to download and install as far as I am concerned.
Well, the only thing holding me back from updating is whether the battery is worse on 9.2.1 or whether it breaks any apps. But if it's as stable as 9.2, then I'll go for it.
Yeh 99% actually of stuff in the wiki thread about 9.2.1 aren't NEW bugs to 9.2.1; but bugs that have been there since iOS9 released. I have pushed the starters of these threads to distinguish this in their first post as to not mislead anyone that those are new bugs with that release; but rather what has been in iOS9 vs what they new update caused. But of course not.
I doubt 9.2.1 introduced many if any new bugs frankly. .1 updates are typically just bug fixes and performance enhancements so I doubt you will notice anything strikingly different looking.
Unfortunately those wikis get into lagfest and totally off topic and closed by mods quickly before anyone can report anything useful. Just the sad state Macrumors has become in the OS sections.
Differences from 9.2
(5s and mini retina) stutters and lag still there, but toned down. Apps noticeably launch faster. It feels more responsive. Camera launch instantly. I must wait 2-3 second black screen on 9.2.
In iMessage settings, I'm unable to make changes in the following setting "start new conversations from."
Decided to look at the settings due to receiving duplicate text messages. Turning iMessage off and on didn't correct it.
Signing out and back in has restored ability to select which address to "start new conversations from."
