Apple Releases First iOS 9.2.1 Beta for Public Beta Testers

ios_9_iconApple today seeded the first beta of an upcoming iOS 9.2.1 update to its public beta testers, with the software being made available just a day after the first developer beta of iOS 9.2.1 launched. The iOS 9.2.1 beta comes a week and a half after the public release of iOS 9.2, the second major update to iOS 9.

Beta testers who have signed up for Apple's beta testing program will receive the iOS 9.2.1 update over-the-air after installing the proper certificates.

Those who want to be a part of Apple's beta testing program can sign up to participate on the company's beta testing website, which gives users access to both iOS and OS X betas.

The first developer beta of iOS 9.2.1 revealed no significant outward-facing changes, suggesting iOS 9.2.1 is a minor update that will focus on under-the-hood performance improvements and bug fixes to address issues discovered since the release of iOS 9.2.

No one has found ANY fixes?

Do downloads finish? I've seen so many app updates fail and even iCloud restores fail because downloads never finish. They sometimes won't start, sometimes start then never finish, something finish downloading but never finish installing.

What about missing icons on the Updates page in the App Store? This has been busted since iOS 8.3 or so.

What about changes to Apple Music? I get so many "An Error Occurred" screens that I could scream. I have to force-close and re-open the app to get it actually load.

I don't understand how Apple can allow so many issues to persist from release to release.

Is it just me, or has Apple's servers for updates been painfully slow the last month or so? I even switched off my wifi and tried over LTE to download stuff and it is taking 10 minutes for a standard app, and now this.

It seems as though my Notification Center bug with mail not closing out is finally fixed! Yay!

I have received a couple responses for only a handful of feedback submissions. Contacts search bug was one of them and it was fixed. So they do respond sometimes but not necessarily always.
Well now, you're just bragging because they responded to you and I am just jealous because you're special and I'm not.

I have to confess I was quite angry at Apple for delivering an unfinished 9.1. Crashed all the time. Now everything is fixed with 9.2. I have nothing to complain about it.
