I, personally, always wait for a bit to update my iOS. Why? Maybe I'm not brave enough to take the fall and be one of the first to download because I'm terrified this version might somehow completely wipe my phone clean and I'll never be able to retrieve contacts or photos I haven't saved. Maybe because as much as I love new technology, sometimes I'm whiny about having to learn a new way of doing things. Scientifically speaking, it might also be due to my short attention span and the fact that the time-space continuum apparently puts life in slow motion when my phone is plugged into a power source, updating, and restarting. 

Or maybe it's because I get some kind of sick pleasure when I hear and watch everyone who updates on day one immediately start bitching about what's going wrong with their phone now. Suckerrrrrs. You thought you were moving up in the world of iOS, but no, now look at how many #firstworldproblems you've just added to your day.

But I digress...eventually I download and install too because I can't live without being able to send the unicorn emoji and I can't stand getting that stupid question mark in the box in a text because it is crucial to my conversation. What did they send? What does it mean? I have to see it! I have to know what it's like on the other side! iOS9 is great but a little buggy, so yesterday Apple gave us another update that promises a lot of quick fixes with iOS9.2. But is it really an update? I vote yes. Here are just a few new fixes for your Apple devices. 

For Apple Music you can now:

-Download albums or playlists from your iCloud Music Library by tapping the iCloud download button

-See works, composers, and performers while you're browsing Classical music in the Apple Music catalog

-See which songs have been downloaded with the new download indicator next to each song in My Music and Playlists

-Create a new playlist when adding a song to a playlist

For Mail Drop in Mail you can now:

-Send larger attachments

-Send attachments without them overlapping text in mail

-Write better with improved responses from Quick Reply

And as far as Accessibility is concerned you can now:

-Speak Arabic to a Siri that will understand

-Experience improved functionality with Switch Control for 3D Touch

-Experience additional support with VoiceOver in-camera face detection & waking up the screen

iBooks has been updated for 3D Touch support and Apple News now has a "Top Stories" section so that users can see what's most important quicker. There should also now be iPhone support for the USB Camera Adapter. The list goes on with this update and I think it's worth installing pretty quickly if you'd like some improvements to your iOS9 on your iPhone, iPad, iTouch, Apple Watch, or Apple TV.
