After several months spent on beta testers' devices, the iOS 8.2 firmware update is apparently finally ready for game time, for Apple is pushing the new code to eligible devices starting right now. The firmware is available both through iTunes and over-the-air (from your phone), and qualifying devices include the iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, iPhone 6
, and iPhone 6 Plus
, alongside all iPads (except first generation units), and the fifth-gen iPod Touch.
The timing here is not at all random, and coincides with the second
formal announcement of the Apple Watch
, which is due to enter a pre-order phase (April 10) and stick to it for two weeks (starts shipping on April 24). The new update will add support for Apple's first wearable and add a number of improvements to the Health app. Moreover, a whole plethora of stability enhancements and bug fixes. See the full list right below.
