Why would it not have been ok? I didn't see any warning about the update.
I always get the updates immediately and there should be no problems. I never think of the updates as possibly being problematic. However, there have been times after an update, I can't recall which updates, where there were issues and it would have been better if I waited. I usually jump right on them when I see them. My girlfriend always waits and laughs at me for getting the updates immediately. In the end it all worked out.

The previous version is usually still being signed by Apple for at least a week or two so you can roll back if necessary.

Once an update is pushed I will certainly google 'iOS X.x.x Problems,'daily for a few days to see what floats to the top then decide if I can live with any possible calamities. I learned to do that after phone connectivity was trashed with an iOS 6 update...... (Can't remember which, it was quite a while ago) I was also burned on iOS 9 when it killed all or most of my notifications,which was never really discussed deeply anywhere until well after it was in circulation. Fortunately the 'bug fix' which came our subsequently remedied the problems with iOS 6, and for most having issues with the notifications... The notification fix was never detailed in any change logs though, almost like the powers that be hoped no one would have noticed it was broken in the first place. So I have some faith but am not totally trusting.

My iPad mini ( old, like me) my iPhone 6 and my wifes 6Plus all done without any issues - her iPad 2is now downloading - I elected OTA as its not a big leap from 9.2 to 9.2.1 & I'm not updating to fix any preexisting bugs.... but I very much appreciate your concerns. As I've suggested in another post,once an update is out,wheter or not your carrier has yet pushed it to your device, simply Google the update as in iOS X.x.x issues, or problems, and see what comes up over a few days.Forbes magazine and Arstechnica will often have articles very quickly boys any potential problems. And believe me, Apple may fix things which they never have indicated were problems, probably hoping that no one may have found out about the bug(s) yet..... but so far 9.2.1 seems benign

All phones and iPads now done (9.2.1) without a hitch in the update process. Of course I'll start a thread if any problems arise, which I don't expect, ( but then again.....). The only 'happening' in the tablet/phone marathon was that after updating, my wifes iPhone 6plus, her SwiftKey came up with a note, top of the keyboard, about cycling "Allow Full Access", leading me to find it had been switched off in the update. For all I know that's the default setting, but that did not happen on any of the other devices, so I simply switched it back on. Apparently there is an OS X update in the push process as a bug fix for El Capitan on iMac and Macbook but I'll wait until I see it.....

I have no issues with 9.2.1 on both my iPad Air 2 and on my iPhone 6s Plus. I did hesitate to install it on my phone after reading some peoples' horror stories, but they were of a very limited scope. And 9.2.1 fixes an important security hole so I bit the bullet and let it install. So far so good. Two days and not a single issue, but then I have rarely experienced issues with iOS updates. Just lucky I guess.

One thing I did notice. The non-jailbreak version of f.lux (Nightshade?? Not suer of the name now) kept quitting and wouldn't work. I ended up deleting it since the functionality is included in the upcoming iOS 9.3. This was the app you had to compile yourself from posted source code, compile with Xcode, and then self-sign. Xcode handles it all very easily though. I'm no developer - far from it - but I got this done in no time as Xcode does all the heavy lifting.

It seems it is a problem for other users.

For info:

To fix this. Go to settings, Safari then clear your history and web data
