Beta testing is always a risky business, especially if you are installing the unproven software on your main device. The whole point of beta testing is to identify bugs and instabilities in software that has not yet been officially released. As such, there is always the possibility of installing the software and finding that your device constantly crashes in certain situations, or certain features no longer work. For instance, the 9.3 beta has elicited complaints about Bluetooth not working properly.
Some iPhone 6s users have noticed a perplexing issue where the battery percentage in the status bar does not change.

The iOS 9.2 update featured a long list of improvements, bug fixes and new features. While Apple Music, News, and Mail Drop made headlines, photographers will enjoy one important item buried in the list. Apple's $29 accessory, the Lightning to USB Camera Adapter is now compatible with the iPhone. Until the iOS 9.2 launch, the cable could only be used in conjunction with an iPad.
iOS 9.2 is now available as an OTA update for all compatible devices. The update includes many new features, bug fixes and accessibility improvements with a heavy emphasis on Apple Music. Users who upgrade to iOS 9.2 can now "create a new playlist when adding a song to a playlist," use the iCloud button to download albums or playlists from their iCloud Music Library, and see what tracks have been downloaded thanks to a new download indicator next to each song, according to the release notes.
