iOS 9.2 is GA

iOS 9.2 is now out.  There seems to quite a few fixes in it.  As always I am not doing an over the air (OTA) upgrade but rather one connected to iTunes.  As I update devices I will update this article with how well it goes.  And as always I have my iTunes configured so that Cloud backups occur, but also encrypted backup when I do local backup.  So as part of this update an encrypted backup occurs.  Which means it catches all the passwords and workout data.  See below for the release notes.


  • 12/8/15 - 2115 - one iPad Air 2 updated with no issues.
  • 12/8/15 – 2001 – one iPhone 6s updated with no issues.
