In the meantime, another iOS 9.3 beta version has been rolled out for those who are a part of the beta testing program from Apple.
As is implied by the version number, iOS 9.2.1 is not a big release and doesn’t come with any new features but focuses on just the bug fixes, reliability enhancements and performance improvements. This new update includes a fix for the issue which can prevent the installation of an app from completing when the iPhone is using MDM server.

Apple’s iOS 9 is on 75% of iPhone and iPad Devices now

According to the reports, the iOS 9 software from Apple is now installed in around 75% of the compatible iPhone and iPad devices. This percentile is calculated on the basis of the latest figures from Apple. In the year 2014, the iOS 8 software was released by the company and the figures show that the mobile OS is still found in 19% of the iPhone and iPad devices. While on the other hand, the older versions of the mobile operating system account for only 7% of the smartphones and tables from Apple.

The sources claim that this data was measure by Apple on 11th January, 2016. In the past month, only 4% users have moved to the new iOS9 version of the software. Also, we can expect this software version to break 80% barrier in the coming months, with a new iPhone 6C budget phone to be released in March this year. This phone is expected to drive the growth for Apple a bit.

From this statistics, it is clear that iOS 9 is enjoying faster growth than the iOS 8 version, which was installed on 68% of the iPhone and iPad devices at this point of time. On the other hand, Google’s latest Android 6.0 version is installed on only 0.7% of the android devices running all over the world. These stats are something very low in comparison to the records set by the iOS 9 software from the Cupertino’s giant.

Apple has also revealed a new features in its latest iOS 9 software, which will cut down the blue light and improve the sleep for those using their phone before going to bed.

Delete the apps not used by you any longer:

This is a simple to do thing but is really effective for increasing the storage on your iPhone.

If you are not sure that it’s worth deleting an app or not then just head to the settings on your iPhone and then click on General then Storage and iCloud usage then finally on the Manage Storage. Here, you can directly find out how much space is being taken up by it. The Games are likely to use most of the space, with the latest action titles taking up most storage.

Organize your Images:

Google Photos app allows you to store your pictures and videos on cloud for free. To start using this application, just head to the App store and start downloading it. However, you will need a Google account to start using these pictures, so sign up for one if you don’t have it.

Once you are done with it, just make a tap on the menu icon located at the top left of the Google Photos app and choose “Settings”. Then, tap the “Backup and Synchronization” and just turn it on. Now, all the photos snapped by you will be automatically saved to the Google’s cloud, so you can delete them safely from your iPhone or iPad device.

However, it is always recommended to first check your Google Photos account by logging in from some other device to ensure that are safely backed up there because you will never prefer to lose any of your photos in any condition.

You should also enter the settings in your iPhone and head to the Photos & Camera to check out that “My Photo Stream” is deactivated. Otherwise, your iPhone or iPad device will get cluttered with the photos taken using other iOS devices available with you. Another option is to turn off the “Keep Normal Photo”, to make sure that you don’t store two copies of every HDR photo you click with your device.

Just Stream and don’t download:

In UK, it is quite affordable to grab an “AYCE” data contract which enables you to download and browse the internet at no extra cost. Thus, you can also choose to delete the music and video files from your phone and iPad and stream these. There are service providers such as Netflix or Spotify that offer a huge catalogue with the online content that you can enjoy as much as you can. All you will need is an internet connection but beware as you can be hit by the terrific roaming charges if you use it abroad as well.

Change the messaging settings:

If you don’t read the old messages from your iPhone them head to the Settings then Messages and change the Keep Messages value to 30 days. This will automatically delete the messages from your device after one month to free up the space. Also, if you are using any of the third-party apps on your device then these could be eating up your valuable storage. So, you can opt for uninstalling these applications id not required.

Update to iOS 9:
