Apple releases iOS 8.2 today with Apple Watch support and plenty of bug fixes

iOS 8 logoiOS 8.2 has been in development for several months now, and today Apple is formally releasing the update to the public. It's available as an over-the-air update or through iTunes for any device running iOS 8, including the iPhone 4S, 5, 5C, 5S, 6, and 6 Plus; all iPads except the first-generation model; and the fifth-generation iPod Touch.

The biggest feature update is support for the Apple Watch. The device will work with the iPhone 5 and newer models, but it will not work with iPads or iPods. Once you've tethered a watch to your phone, a new companion app will allow you to change the watch's settings, organize its Home screen, and make other changes. We'll take a longer look at this companion app when the time comes to review the Apple Watch itself.

For those of you with other iDevices and/or no particular interest in the Apple Watch, there are still plenty of reasons to install the update. HomeKit is automation geared and will allow users to control Internet-enabled devices at home The Health app, which suffered from quite a few bugs when iOS 8 was first released, has been improved in a number of ways as the company's ResearchKit initiative kicks off. Mail, the Flyover feature in Maps, and Music have all received stability fixes. VoiceOver is more reliable. A tricky Calendar bug that would make all events appear in GMT is gone. There aren't any features as significant as the Apple Watch support, but it's hard to complain about bug fixes. The complete release notes are below.

Кроме того, исправлена ошибка, препятствовавшая прокладке маршрута к местам из «Избранного» в программе «Карты». Устранена проблема, из-за которой при быстром ответе для последнего слова не выполнялась автокоррекция. Исправлена ошибка функции вызовов через Bluetooth, из-за которой звук не был слышен до ответа на звонок. Также исправлены ошибки, связанные с настройками календаря и учетной записи Exchange.
