Apple have today released iOS 8.2 – you can get the update now by going into your settings on your iPads, iPhones and iPods and updating your device.
The big news is that Apple have decided to stick an advertisement app on the home screen for the Apple Watch – NOT COOL APPLE!
This is the sort of thing that really pisses people off and we think that this will soon be retracted by Apple and an apology released!
Apart from that, we do not really know much about what the new update offers as we have not really tested it fully yet, but if there is anything worth posting, we will soon. The official Apple changelog is below.
