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.

I hope some issues related to abnormal overheating of the 6S/Plus are fixed. There's no apparent reason for that. Also, some people have their iPhones turning off or restarting overnight.

The only thing that's keeping me from going to this is that 9.2 beta pretty much made texting to non iPhone people hit or miss, 90% of texts I sent never delivered and some that delivered showed not delivered so I would try to send again... basically resulting in the other person receiving 5 of the same texts from me and me still believing they neveer got the message. 9.2 final fixed this but it was quite a pain trying to communicate with android users.

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.
The pop ups alerting you of nearby networks? Just turn off "Ask to join network." If it's about data use, guessing that's app developers dependent

No, he's talking about the ones that let you know "Location accuracy is improved" when you are not on WiFi.

But I don't get his connection to Windows, can't please all the fanboys.

No, on my job I sometimes loose connection to the network when I sit outside for a break, I know it's gone just bit looking at my screen, I go sit a bit nearer by (just 3 feet) and it reconnects.
Many times it warns me with a po-up, telling me I need to go into settings, I don't have (need) data on my providers network, so I don't need to see that pop-up each and every frigging time.

I think this is more about notifications like that I am not connected to the Internet which shows up when I open the iBooks app. Being connected to the Internet is not exactly a mandatory requirement to be able to use iBooks, yet I still always get a notification when I open the app without a network connection being active.

Exactly that.

I hate it when I want to *"throw away" something to the trash bin on Windows: Are you sure you want to throw ... away.
Yes, I want to move the file to the trash bin folder because that's what it is.
Yes, I am aware you can turn that off, but you will still get that warning if you empty the trash bin.
This is just an example, there are lot more annoying notifications on Windows.

I guess you've never deleted a file on a network drive on OS X then, which I realize is because it is a permanent deletion but still.

Both have their quirks. I wish I didn't have to re-connect to the file server every morning when I get to work which takes more than a few seconds. On Windows I have the drive mapped and as soon as I connect to WiFi I'm good to go.

This! I don't have to do it every morning because I leave my Mac running but at some point it loses the connection and I loose the five tabs that I have open to various network storage locations.
