Less than a week after releasing the first major update for iOS 9, Apple has seeded iOS 9.2 beta 1 to developers today.

iOS 9.2 likely focuses mostly on bug fixes and under the hood improvements, after iOS 9.1 brought a number of features like new emoji, Live Photo fixes, new wallpapers, keyboard tweaks, and support for the new Apple TV and iPad Pro.


The new update is available for direct download in the Apple Developer Center for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. The release notes for the update don’t mention any major new features, but it does not that several significant improvements have been made to the Safari ViewController so that 3rd Party apps can give users the option to long tap on the reload button to reload content without content blockers or request the desktop site.

We’ll let you know what else we find as soon as we get the software on our devices.
