Apple releases iOS/iPadOS 15.2.1 update with bug fixes

The news: Apple’s first software update of 2022, iOS 15.2.1, is now rolling out to compatible devices.

What’s new, according to Apple’s release notes… (via 9to5Mac)

  • Messages may not load photos sent using an iCloud Link
  • Third-party CarPlay apps may not respond to input

Our take: Looks like a pair of minor fixes here, but I really hope there are some stability improvements as well. iOS 15.2 has been stable but unpredictable in apps like Messages, where I’ll have to force quit somewhat often to read or send a text. Perhaps the aforementioned iCloud photos bug was playing a role?
