Apple Seeds First iOS 9.3.2 Beta to Public Beta Testers

ios93Apple today released the first beta of an upcoming iOS 9.3.2 update for public beta testers, just a day after seeding the first iOS 9.3.2 beta to developers. iOS 9.3.2 comes just over two weeks after the public release of iOS 9.3 and a week after the release of iOS 9.3.1, a followup bug fix update.

Beta testers who have signed up for Apple's beta testing program will receive the iOS 9.3.2 update over-the-air after installing the proper certificate on their iOS device.

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

iOS 9.3.2, as a minor 9.x.x update, focuses primarily on performance improvements and under-the-hood bug fixes to address issues that have been discovered since the release of iOS 9.3. We don't know all of the fixes that will be included, but one issue with lagginess when activating Quick Actions in landscape mode on an iPhone 6s has been fixed.

No other outward-facing changes or immediately apparent bug fixes were discovered in the first beta of iOS 9.3.2.

I suppose no matter how many betas there are, there will still be beta testers who don't understand the purpose of testing, they still expect a toy or a piece of chocolate for testing.
We, as beta testers, would understand better what he have to test if apple released a changelog with the betas. I don't understand what's the point in having to discover the changes...
Even as an user I like to know what an update is about.

If it's just under the hood improvements and not new features or outward changes, then what would the average "public" user know or care about if lines of code are being corrected or changed? It would be just pages of code. Useful? No. Testers should report bugs. That's the point...not to discover new "things".
Or. "Safari links have been corrected" "Spotlight now searched music correctly" so folks can specifically test those areas to see if in fact it was fixed. Whats the difference in them providing a changelog upon release? Most end users probably dont even read those. Only us tech folks even care. Seems it would be more important to supply testers with that information than the general end user.

I was part of the previous beta on IOS and this new version did not appears. If this occurs you need to re-download the software certificate by logging into beta.apple.com on your iOS device and choose install profile. The iOS device will need to reboot or it to take effect, and then it will be available.

This alludes me as well. Why should I have to beg the devs to tell me what's in the change log? I submit a few reports per beta for crap sake. I'd like to know what is fixed and what is broken too!

At this rate I think Craig got the devs working as slaves.. Either that or Apple hired Oompa Loompas.
