Apple has released iOS 9.2 for iPads and iPhones, containing numerous feature upgrades and new additions, as well as several security fixes.
The update is 271MB if updating from iOS 9.1 and some of the most notable new features include the 3D Touch support within iBooks, for iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus devices, and improved stability for Safari and Podcasts.
There are also fixes for the address book, to stop an issue where searches would return no results, and an issue that could stop iCloud back-ups from completing.
There are also numerous new features for Apple Music, changes to the News service and support for Mail Drop so users can send attachments up to 5GB in size, via iCloud.
Meanwhile on the security side the update brings a total of 30 fixes, relating to issues found by both researchers at Apple and those at other vendors, including Google and Yahoo.
Some of these issues relate to the remote execution of code and remote access to system privileges.
One notable fix is for a fault that could allow people to use Siri on someone’s device to hear notifications that were set to not display on the lock-screen, potentially revealing personal information.
“When a request was made to Siri, client side restrictions were not being checked by the server. This issue was addressed through improved restriction checking,” Apple noted.
Another issue of note is a problem in Safari that could allow attackers to display content from a different website to that which the URL represents, potentially spoofing users into sharing information unwittingly.
"An issue may have allowed a website to display content with a URL from a different website. This issue was addressed through improved URL handling."
