Apple today seeded the second beta of iOS 9.2 to developers for testing purposes, one week after seeding the first iOS 9.2 beta and two weeks after releasing iOS 9.1 to the public.
The new iOS 9.2 beta, build 13C5060d, is available as an over-the-air update and through the Apple Developer Center.
The first beta of iOS 9.2 introduced some changes for the Safari View Controller within apps, letting it work more like the standard Safari app with support for third-party Action Extensions and the ability to long tap on the Reload button to reload content without content blockers or request desktop site.
iOS 9.2 also includes a number of bug fixes and performance enhancements, many of which are under-the-hood improvements. Thus far no other outward-facing changes have been discovered, but updates in the second beta will be listed below if found.
Bug Fixes in iOS 9.2 Beta 2:
– Un-paring and re-pairing the Apple Watch will no longer cause the Stocks glance to go missing.
– Syncing Music to the Apple Watch has been fixed.
– An issue impacting audio quality when playing audio over USB in some car stereos has been fixed.
– A bug with iCloud Keychain has been fixed, so users should no longer see „Could Not Set Up iCloud Keychain“ errors.
– Videos with ‘folw’ track associations will no longer fail to play on 32-bit devices.
New Features in iOS 9.2 Beta 2:
– It’s now possible to dismiss the Safari View Controller with an edge swipe.
