Apple releases the long awaited iOS 8.2

Apple iOS 8.2 (build number 12D508) has now been released. This is a major release, the largest since iOS 8 was released and contains many bug fixes and is available for iPhones, iPads and iPod touches. To download this update you will need to use iTunes or WiFi. The update on my iPhone 6  that was on version 8.1.3 was 476MB.

Before running the update I recommend that you backup your device including any purchases and then once the update has run I always perform a hard reset and check for any updates to applications in the App Store.
