It was only two days ago when Apple made the first developer beta of iOS 9.2 available to the registered members of the Apple Developer Program. And today, the company has seeded iOS 9.2 public beta 1 to its Public Beta Program just a few hours ago. The build number for the first public beta of iOS 9.2 is 13C5055d, and the beta is available to eligible users via an over-the-air update. In case you want to test out the beta, you can sign up for the Public Beta testing program.
Apple has already released iOS 9.1 to its users worldwide, and it took more than 3-4 weeks or almost a month for iOS 9.1 to complete its beta testing phase. Taking a guess from this, we think that there will be at least 4-5 iOS 9.2 beta releases before the firmware is released for the public, and that won’t be before at least a month from now.
Talking about iOS 9.2 public beta 1, perhaps the only noticeable change as of now is how Safari browser works with 3rd-party apps and how it enables users to install extensions and use them in such conditions. Apart from that, any other changes are still unknown and must be under-the-hood bug fixes. We might also have to consider the possibility that the beta brings Apple Pencil support to the iPad Pro that is releasing this November. Meanwhile, the iOS 9.2 jailbreak scene has also started picking up pace. A lot more developments are awaited in the coming weeks. So stay tuned to MobiPicker.
