iOS 9.2 Beta 4 & tvOS 9.1 beta 3 Released for Testing
Apple has released the fourth beta of iOS 9.2 to users participating in the public beta testing and registered developer programs. The new iOS 9.2 beta build arrives as 13C5075 and is compatible with all iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch hardware that can run other version of iOS 9. Additionally, Apple has released the third beta build of tvOS 9.1 for the new Apple TV.
Users currently running an earlier version of the iOS 9.2 beta can find the beta 4 update within the Software Update section of their Settings app. Additionally, users in the developer beta program can download IPSW for the latest build directly from the iOS Developer Center.
Similarly, users of existing betas on the new Apple TV can download the latest update from the Software Update mechanism, or start the download from the developer center and use iTunes and a USB cable to complete the installation.
iOS 9.2 seems primary focused on maintenance and bug fixing, as there are no known new major features or significant additions to the release. 9to5mac notes that the new version does have Arabic language support for Siri and support for an AT&T feature called NumberSync.
Currently, iOS 9.1 remains the most recently available final build of iOS for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. On a related note, a new build of iOS 9.1 was released today specifically for iPad Pro users, but given the minor incremental difference in build numbers it’s likely a simple bug fix if anything notable.
Separately, Mac beta testers will find OS X 10.11.2 beta 4 also available to download and install.
I have update my iPhone 5s to iOS 9.1 and my iPhone battery keep draining by 1% every 15min. What should I do to fix my iPhone problems? 😨😰😰😰
Please tell me the latest builds of tvOS fix the issue with descriptions missing on self-ripped movie files in Home Sharing.
anyone having issue with volume being low during calls.. even when the volume is set to max on the headset?
Having updated to iOS 9.1 and then finding I am requested to verify my Apple ID with every power cycle, I am hoping 9.2 public release will fix this apparent bug… It is on my iPhone and iPad.
I experience this constantly as well in iOS 9.1 and iOS 9.2. I just don’t turn off my iPhone anymore for best results. Very buggy experience.
A very strong warning to the unwary: REGISTER YOUR DEVICE FIRST! This build requires it, unlike previous builds; you will brick your device, requiring a full DFU restore–in the middle of an update–if you OTA upgrade from the previous build without registration. This I learned the bloody hard way. Fortunately, with encrypted backups to spare. :)
Is it iOS 9.2 going to put the speed from iOS 8 back in iOS 9 on the exact same hardware? Because wow did iOS 9 slow down anything it has touched.
