Apple releases maintenance update iOS 9.2.1 to exterminate bugs and more
Apple has begun pushing out iOS 9.2.1 today to iPhone and iPad users. Merely a maintenance update, the new build includes bug fixes and security improvements. It also takes care of an issue that prevents enterprise users from installing apps using an MDM like BlackBerry's BES12. Two developer betas of the iOS 9.2.1 build were disseminated prior to its release. 

Those with an iOS powered device are more excited about the upcoming iOS 9.3 update. This will include Night Shift, a feature that makes the screen easier on the eyes once the sun goes down. In theory, by reducing users' exposure to blue light before bedtime, it could be easier for those sporting an iPhone or iPad to fall asleep.

Another useful new feature will be the ability to secure individual Notes entries using Touch ID fingerprint or password. Meanwhile, owners of multiple Apple Watch units will be able to pair them all with one iPhone unit.

Finally! It might mean that jailbreak is very soon to be published.
Or we will have to wait again for 9.3

And fix the lag/performance on older high res models

My iPad Mini 2 (2013, A7) still has lag issues on iOS 9.2
Only just smoother than my brothers 2013 Moto G
Its far better than iOS 9.1/9.2, but still is a far cry from iOS 7

I heard people are saying its fixed in the iOS 9.3 beta
But people were saying that about the iOS 9.2 beta

Try hard reset ? One friend had some small lag issue with iPad air (a7x) and after hard reset was butter smooth.

On this site, yea. Head over to Reddit.com/r/android and it's quite believable. This site is full of people who will take a bullet for Android/Apple lol.

My iPad 3 (2012) runs really good on iOS 9. And my iPhone 5s almost indistinguishable from the 6s side by side. No problems with iOS 9

I don't doubt it. Theses clowns on this site will say anything against something that "makes android look bad", when in fact, is just a simple objective claim.

We talked before, I have 4S and honestly it works like s.it on iOS9. iOS 8 was already big step forward in performance and 9 doesn't improve nothing. In example compare how long does it take to open camera or messages on iOS9 and some other phone, even 2 years android flagship beat it. On iOS6 on the other hand it runs perfectly smooth, I'd say there is no difference beetwen it and 5S on iOS9.
iOS7 was beastly OS on 4S and it's still very capable phone but with all respect, you're talking crap right now

It doesn't bother me too much having apples apps in on folder in the back - it's not annoying, unlike as all the 3rd party crap that they put into android phones that you can't just put into a corner - you must shuffle thru it everytime you visit the "app drawer". But yes I have hopes that Apple will get around to it since they voiced their intent to do just that.

6s is better and faster phone but 6 is more than enough for at least two more years.

Finally!! I am not a personal iOS user, but I work at a school as a tech, my co-worker and I have had major issues implementing school educational programs with 9.2. We've heard that an update fix was coming, but the damage is already done as 9.2 has already been 80% updated at our school. The programs glitch or do not get pushed through our management program leaving students having issues implementing these educational tools.

I dislike Apple's support and partnership with our school district. Our district usually lets us know issues that arise through school site feedback. I will say that Apple does not like calls regarding Apple ID's in trying to unlock them.

Turnaround time is horrible! So hopefully the update will improve iPad compatibility and not give us further issues, which I doubt very much.
