Apple Seeds Fourth iOS 9.2 Beta to Developers and Public Beta Testers

ios_9_iconApple today seeded the fourth beta of iOS 9.2 to developers and public beta testers for testing purposes, just over one week after seeding the third iOS 9.2 beta and a full month after releasing iOS 9.1 to the public. As a .1 upgrade, iOS 9.2 will mark the second major update to iOS 9.

The fourth beta of iOS 9.2, build 13C5075, is available as an over-the-air update and through the Apple Developer Center. Public beta testers can download the update over the air. Apple has also released Xcode 7.2 beta 4.

Earlier betas of iOS 9.2 included changes to the Safari View Controller, which is what allows a pop-up Safari window to be used in third-party apps. In iOS 9.2, Safari View Controller supports third-party Action Extensions, letting apps like 1Password to be accessed in the Safari view of other apps like Tweetbot.

Safari View Controller has also been updated with the ability to long tap on the Reload button to reload content without content blockers and it now supports the request desktop site function. The second iOS 9.2 beta improved Safari View Controller further, introducing support for dismissing it with an edge swipe.

Along with improvements to Safari View Controller, iOS 9.2 also introduces Arabic support for Siri, support for AT&T's NumberSync Wi-Fi Calling feature and it includes bug fixes for iCloud Keychain, Apple Watch syncing and pairing, audio quality when streaming to stereo systems, and more.

Day 68. It's been over two months since this whole thing started. Recently beta 4 came out, and for the first time in weeks we experienced an emotion I would have called hope a year ago. I should have known better.

Animations are still laggy. Scrolling stutters so much it keeps me awake at night. Children started crying. I've been telling my people rescue is coming and Apple will never abandon us, but frankly, I am starting to doubt myself.

More and more, it seems like we have to accept that the prosperity we've had for decades is gone forever. We will have to adjust to this new world where quality, promises and certainties no longer exist.

Apple as we know it is gone and we will have to adjust. I don't know how, but it's the only way.

This thread looks like a Twitter feed from a group of middle school girls. “Downloading now” “Not showing for me” “I got it” “Where is it” “Slow DL”

Downloading now.Hoping the atrocious lags are sorted out
People shouldn't be allowed to post lag comments unless they specify what and where. I'm happy to try to reproduce it. Because I don't have any lag I'm aware of it's not someplace I normally go or do on my phone. Or it's an app I don't use. I've restored my phone as new to try and help people but ya' gotta give us something to help with.
