iOS 8.2 Update

Hi there,

The iOS update was smooth and easy.  Just like most of them.  Not sure if I am going to buy an Apple Watch or not, but I am tempted.  And while that is a big part of 8.2 there is quite a number of other things.

The list of things in this release was bigger then normal so I thought I would share it out.
