A fresh new batch of Apple beta software is now available for developers two weeks after the company dropped its last big set of new software.

New beta builds of iOS 9.3.2, watchOS 2.2.1, tvOS 9.2.1 and OS X 10.11.5 can be found in the Apple developer center, bringing a bunch of new bug fixes, and hopefully some feature improvements as well. 

Developers can install iOS 9.3.2 beta 2 via an over-the-air update if you currenty have the first beta installed. Getting tvOS 9.2.1 on your Apple TV is a bit more complicated though and requires you to plug the device in to a Mac to update the software.

One of the biggest new features of iOS 9.3.2 beta 2 is the ability to use Night Shift and Low Power Mode at the same time. Apple included the feature in early beta builds of iOS 9.3 but removed it from the final public version. The latest beta is a minor update compared to iOS 9.3 which introduced many major new features like Touch ID notes, iPad education features, Night Shift, and more.

It appears that none of the four betas are available to public testers quite yet, but Apple will likely open access within the next few days. The release notes for all the updates are fairly nondescript. We’ll let you know if we find any new goodies once we get them installed on our Macs, iPhones, Apple Watches, and Apple TVs.
