Great news for the Apple users who own an iPhone, Mac or an Apple Watch. The members of the Apple Developer Program can update their devices to the betas of iOS 9.2 and OS X El Capitan 10.11.2, which were seeded at the beginning of last week, or to tvOS 9.1, which came last Thursday, in this article we’ll tell you more about each update.
iOS 9.2 Beta 2
According to the changelog, this update comes with fixes for a few bugs that have been discovered in the first beta:
When you were un-pairing and re-pairing your Apple Watch, the stocks glance was missing; The Apple Watch was unable to sync music in some cases; There was a bug which affected the audio quality when playing music over USB with some car stereos; There were cases when while setting up iCloud Keychain, the users received a Could Not Set Up iCloud Keychain error and they needed to reboot the device; The 32bit devices had problems with videos with ‘folw’ track associations, because they failed to play.
To upgrade to iOS 9.2 beta 2, you will need to go to Settings > General > Software Update. This update allows you to dismiss the Safari View Controller using an edge swipe, but it seems that in order to take advantage of this new possibility, you must rebuild your app against the iOS 9.2 SDK.
