Apple has released the first beta of iOS 9.2.1 and the developers are able to download and install it on their devices. The first beta release is already available to the users who are part of the iOS public beta program, but Apple has offered a detailed change log, and we’re guessing that the update contains bug fixes and other improvements.

There are many users who haven’t changed their old iPhones or iPads and they are relying on iOS’ updates to extend the life of their devices. Apple hasn’t neglected this category of users and included performance enhancements in its iOS releases, which helped the old phones and tablets to work almost as great as the devices that have been created using the new technology.

When Apple has released the iOS 8 with a size of 4.58GB, many device owners were scandalized because there were plenty users who had devices with an internal memory of 16GB, and we all know that there is no available card slot for expansion. In 2015, Apple has managed to compress the new operating system, reducing the file size to 1.3GB, so it leave more space for installing applications or to store photos and videos.

Right after the release of the iOS9, Apple has continued to work on improving the software, especially because there were problems with the touchscreen, battery life, WiFi connection, Bluetooth, Touch ID etc. and in short time arrived iOS 9.0.1. This update brought a few fixes, but it wasn’t enough to solve all the problems and the developers continued to work on version iOS 9.0.2, then they’ve released iOS 9.1 and iOS 9.2, and now they’re preparing to introduce iOS 9.2.1.

On iAppleBytes’s YouTube channel, we’ve seen a video of iOS 9.2 and iOS 9.2.1 beta 1, whose performance has been compared and we were able to see them in action on an iPhone 4S. The video we’re talking about can be watched below:

So, the iOS 9.2.1 beta 1 seems to be speedier and it’s able to perform certain functions without any problems, even if it’s installed on an older iPhone.
