Today Apple has released iOS 9.2, the second major iOS 9 update — which has several major improvements and bug fixes. The iOS 9.2 update arrives about six weeks after iOS 9.1 was released. There are over thirty improvements that have been made in the software update across apps like Apple Music, News, Mail, Podcasts and Safari. But there are six new features that especially stands out.

1.) Use Your Wireless Number On Multiple Devices Using AT&T NumberSync

As expected, Apple iOS 9.2 includes support for AT&T NumberSync. AT&T NumberSync is similar to Apple’s Continuity feature, but it is slightly more advanced. Continuity lets you make phone calls using other Apple devices, but it depends on your iPhone’s cellular connection. AT&T NumberSync lets you place phone calls from your iPad, Apple Watch and El Capitan-based Macs over Wi-Fi without requiring your iPhone to be nearby.

2.) News App Now Has Top Stories

As you may know, Apple News is an app that automatically curates content based on the interests that you select. iOS 9.2 includes an Apple News update that features Top Stories. Top Stories is a feature that enables users to “stay current with the most important news of the day, selected by the Apple News editorial team.”

Those top stories will be published a couple of times per day, according to MacRumors. Apple News will have comScore integration so publishers will be able to see a better picture of their analytics.

3.) Apple Music Changes

Apple Music includes several improvements. Now Apple Music can create a new playlist containing the song you selected when you open the option to add it to a playlist. Most recently changed playlists will be listed at the top when songs are added to playlists. And you can download albums or playlists from your iCloud Music Library by tapping on the iCloud download button.

There is a new download indicator displayed next to each song in My Music and Playlists to see which songs have been downloaded. And the Classical music section has been updated so you can browse works, composers and performers within the Apple Music catalog.
