Apple releases first iOS 9.2 public beta

Apple’s iOS 9 mobile operating system is just over one month old, and we’re already moving on to version 9.2.

The iOS 9.2 build is now available to download as part of Apple’s public beta program.

The publicly downloadable version arrives two days after developers first had access to the updated software.

The software is available as an over-the-air update for eligible users i.e. those who have opted into the public beta.

If you still haven’t opted into the beta, you can do so on Apple’s website.

It’s worth noting that users who upgrade to iOS 9.2 won’t be able to restore their device back to an earlier version.

So what’s new in iOS 9.2? Unfortunately, we don’t really have a clear view of what’s changed just yet.

The most obvious update is to how the Safari browser works in third-party apps.

With the update, user-installed extensions will be able to operate within apps.

While we don’t know what else has changed, there is some speculation that the update could introduce support for the Apple Pencil – due to arrive next month.
