Apple Seeds iOS 9.2 For Public Testing, And Stops Signing iOS 9.0.2

ios-9 3 After Apple seeded iOS 9.2 beta 1 to developers, they recently came out with iOS 9.2 for public beta testers on its public program website. The newest public test is a small update, but it brings some significant features to Safari View Controller for embedded web views.

For those that are already apart of the public beta, or if you would like to join in, simply head to Apple’s beta webpage to get on board. To get started with the public beta on your iOS device, you will need to log in to the beta program website, and sign your device up.

Below is the change log for iOS 9.2 beta 1. This change log is the developer version of iOS 9.2 beta 1, but should also apply to those on the public beta as well.

Here’s What’s New In iOS 9.2 Beta 1:

  • SFSafariViewController now supports 3rd party Action Extensions. Any Action Extension that works in Safari will also work in SFSafariViewController.
  • Long tapping the Reload button in Safari View Controller now gives options to Reload Without Content Blockers and Request Desktop Site, like in Safari.
  • iOS 9.2 Beta 1 resolves an issue where WebApps saved to the home screen would not respect the apple-mobile-web-app-status-bar-style meta tag.

In addition to this, Apple has stopped signing all versions of iOS 9.0.2 for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. This means that the company has closed the signing window for iOS 9.0.2 and won’t let anyone downgrade to it.

The ones most affected by this move would be jailbreakers. With downgrading now impossible, jailbreak users must be careful to not accidentally update to iOS 9.1 and lose all of their jailbreaks. With that said, will you upgrade or will you stay on the current version you’re on? Let us know.
