Apple today seeded the first beta of iOS 9.2 to developers for testing purposes, just under a week after the public release of iOS 9.1. iOS 9.1 brought new emoji and several under-the-hood fixes for issues that have plagued users since the launch of iOS 9.
The iOS 9.2 beta is available for download immediately from the Apple Developer Center, and it’s likely a public beta will be available in the near future.
It is not yet known what changes iOS 9.2 will bring to Apple’s newest operating system, iOS 9, but as a major .1 update, iOS 9.2 is likely to introduce new features, performance improvements, and bug fixes. We’ll update this post with any changes that are discovered in the beta.
What’s new in iOS 9.2
According to the release notes the Safari view window that pops up in some apps will now support third-party Action Extensions. Any Action Extension that works in Safari will also work in SFSafariViewController, allowing it to behave more like the traditional Safari app.
Long tapping on the Reload button in the Safari View Controller will also offer options to reload content without content blockers and request desktop site, as in Safari.
