How to download and update to iOS 9.2
You can easily update your iPhone or iPad to iOS 9.2 via the OTA software update. Updating this way will save the hassle of having to download the iOS 9.2 IPSW link and manually restoring your device through iTunes.
On-The-Air software update can be accessed by going to the Setting app, General, and then Software Update. It should scan for iOS update that best suit your device immediately and provide you with a one-click update button. Once the button is clicked, it will automatically update your device to iOS 9.2.
By default, if there is any new iOS version releases, your iPhone or iPad should automatically notify you about it and ask if you want to update to the latest iOS. It is also recommended to update your device via OTA only if you are on a Wifi network connection so that you won’t be charged massive amount of dollars from using your telco data. It’s usually a huge size update about 1.2 GB.
Other than using the OTA update, you may also want to manually download iOS 9.2 IPSW file and restore or update it using iTunes. To update to iOS 9.2 this way, you will need to have the latest version of iTunes (in order to detect and be compatible with iOS 9.2) and the iOS 9.2 IPSW file that match your iOS device model.
If you are choosing to restore instead of direct update to iOS 9.2 via iTunes, be sure to backup your device first by either creating a full backup using iTunes or syncing all your data, photos and videos.

Important things about iOS 9.2 download update for jailbreak users
iOS 9.2 is currently still un-jailbreak-able. If you rely on jailbreak, do not update to iOS 9.2 just yet if you are currently using a jailbroken iOS version.
There is no going back once you have updated to iOS 9.2 because there is no way to downgrade iOS 9.2 to iOS 9.0.2 (which is the latest jailbroken iOS version) anymore since Apple has stopped signing it awhile ago. Before you make sure iOS 9.2 jailbreak is available, stay away from updating to it.
Update: Rumors claimed that pangu has already jailbroken iOS 9.2. It’s just a matter of time before iOS 9.2 jailbreak will be released and perhaps along with iOS 9.1 jailbreak.
If you are on iOS 9.1, since its jailbreak also hasn’t been announced yet, you might as well just update to iOS 9.2 for all the improvements and new features while waiting for the jailbreak to release. Follow us to be informed as soon as any iOS or jailbreak is announced or released.
