What the Latest iOS 10.2.1 update means for you? January has been a hard month for us all. Our waistlines expanded significantly thanks to all of that Christmas partying, and we have already defected on most of our New Year’s resolutions. At the Mac Rental Company headquarters in London, we are frankly waiting with baited breath for January to end – so we can move on from this tiresome month. However, there is some good news: the iOS 10.2.1 update has finally transitioned from beta and is now fully available on the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch models worldwide. Finally, some cause to celebrate. But, what does this latest update mean for Apple lovers across the world?
The latest Apple update – 10.2 saw some seriously fantastic emojis released, including new professions such as the scientist, teacher, and (our personal favourite) the pilot, as well as bacon, a croissant, and to the relief of hipsters everywhere, avocado. Can the latest iOS update live up this?
Well undoubtedly one of the main perks of the latest iOS update is the increase in security. The iOS 10.2 update may have brought us a ginger emoji, but it also brings 13 known patches for potential exploits. The iOS 10.2.1 takes security a lot more seriously and should help protect any private data you may have on your calls, texts, or emails. It even comes with a number of bug fixes that could help end a problem you are currently dealing with. Not only that, but it also promises to patch up other Apple related issues such as UI lag, reboots, Wi-Fi issues, and the most serious: bad iOS 10 battery life.
iOS 10.2.1 seems to be the gift that keeps on giving because it also provides additional support for RAW cameras, fixes the problem that occasionally prevented the keyboard from displaying in messages, as well as for those people who found the wrong message would be selected after deleting a mail conversation.
It also acts as the perfect complement to those who use Apple TV, as it includes the long awaited Single Sign-On feature for Apple TV and iOS devices. And for those who enjoy watching all other channels, the new TV application provides you with a space in which to truly procrastinate from whatever you should be doing. This app has handy filters that make TV viewing even easier with categories such as “Recommended,” “Up Next,” “Watch Now,” and “Library.”
Happily, the tech wizards at Apple have also made some improvements to the ‘Made for iPhone’ hearing aids which means that pings from the Find My iPhone app as well as FaceTime rings for outgoing calls will now come through the hearing aids, rather than through the iPhone speakers. This is a serious improvement for those with hearing impairments.
