It’s turning out to be a busy weekend for Apple users as the Cupertino giant has not only rolled out the latest iOS 9.2 update, but also updates for the Apple Watch, Apple TV along with Macs.
Let’s kick things off with the latest iOS 9.2 update, which essentially brings several improvements to Apple Music and Apple News along with fixing a variety of bugs. Users can now create a new playlist in Apple Music while adding a song, while Apple has also added support for downloading albums or playlists directly from the iCloud Music library.
Several nifty changes have also been made to the default Mail app, as it now gets support for ‘Mail Drop’ which allows users to large sized files of up to 5GB. Several fixes have also been made to the Mail app. For instance, the update fixes the issue that made mail attachments to be inaccessible for certain users with POP email accounts.
In addition, iOS 9.2 also brings several improvements to iBooks along with the Safari Podcasts app. The company has also added support for the USB Camera Adapter to import photos and videos, while Siri also gets support for Arabic. The latest iOS update also allows the use of Apple’s USB Camera Adapter to import photos and videos from a camera, something that was already supported on the iPad.
iPhone users can download the update by going to Settings, clicking on General and selecting Software Update, which is about 271 MB in size.
Apart from this, Apple has also released minor updates to the Apple Watch, new Apple TV and OS X El Capitan. The watchOS 2.1 update adds Arabic language support for Siri apart from just killing bugs. Now, Apple watchOS 2 supports Arabic, Greek, Hebrew, Hungarian, Malay, Portuguese and Vietnamese.
While the OS X update essentially brings stability and performance improvements with OS X El Capitan 10.11.2. Connectivity is now a lot more reliable on Wi-Fi, Handoff and AirDrop, and Apple has also overhauled Bluetooth Settings to avoid disconnecting on its own.
Finally, Apple has also rolled out an update for the Apple TV with tvOS 9.1. The upgrade adds Siri support for Apple Music and also adds Apple Remote Support for the new Apple TV. Moreover, watchOS 2.1 also allows Apple Watch’s built-in Remote app to work with new Apple TVs as a D-pad too.
