    Apple today updated its TestFlight iOS app to include support for watchOS 2.2 and iOS 9.3, two upcoming software updates that are currently being beta tested by developers and public beta testers.

    Today's update also includes stability and performance improvements for the TestFlight app.
    Both iOS 9.3 and watchOS 2.2 are expected to see a public release in the spring, perhaps at a rumored March 15 event that Apple is said to be planning.

    For those unfamiliar with TestFlight, it's Apple's iOS beta testing platform, designed to let developers recruit beta testers for their apps to work out bugs ahead of releasing apps to the public. Apple acquired TestFlight from Burstly in February of 2014 and relaunched the service alongside iOS 8 as an iOS-integrated testing platform.

    TestFlight can be downloaded for free from the App Store. [Direct Link]

    I'm excited about this update. Really, I am. I have an app I use a lot that I have not been able to load recently due to this but today, we're back.

    Odd, I've been running the iOS 9.3 beta but TestFlight and all my TestFlight apps have been running just fine.

    Running was not the issue. The issue was loading if the app received an update. To make this an issue you would have needed 9.3 beta and 2.2 beta plus an updated Test Flight app you wanted to install. The app would install on your phone but the ability to send the updated app to your watch was broken. The toggle would remain off so you could not install the Test Flight based beta app to the watch. Very narrow issue but one that got me recently and is now fixed.
