Apple Seeds Second Beta of iOS 9.2.1 to Developers and Public Beta Testers

Apple today seeded the second beta of an upcoming iOS 9.2.1 update to developers and public beta testers for testing purposes, nearly three weeks after seeding the first beta and almost one month after the public release of iOS 9.2. iOS 9.2, the second major update to iOS 9, introduced a very long list of bug fixes, along with feature improvements to Apple Music, News, Mail, iBooks, and more.

The second iOS 9.2.1 beta, build 13D14, is available as an over-the-air update for those who downloaded the first beta and it's also available from the Apple Developer Center.

It is not yet clear what changes iOS 9.2.1 will bring to iOS 9, but as it's a minor .1 update, it's likely to focus on performance improvements and introduce fixes for bugs that have been discovered since the release of iOS 9.2. No significant changes were discovered in the first beta, but we'll update this post if anything new is unearthed.

Installed it. Still a lagfest. Not that I was expecting anything else.

iOS 9 still feels beta to me.
Well. It... IS a beta.

You mean you "assume".

Right.

:rolleyes:
And you assume they don't.

See? We both assume. Yours just happens to be more popular around MR because this place lives to complain.

It's been like that since iOS 9.0 beta 1 when Apple implemented Metal on the UI.
