The first beta for iOS 9.2 was seeded to developers earlier this week, but public testers can get in on the action as well now that Apple has made the latest build available to the public.

iOS 9.2 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 most significant improvement made in iOS 9.2 beta 1 come in the form of some Safari ViewController fixes that let 3rd Party long tap on the reload button to reload content without content blockers or request the desktop site.

Public testers can grab the new update now by visiting the Software Update section under the Settings app in iOS.
