    Apple today seeded the second iOS 9.1 beta to public beta testers, two weeks after seeding the first beta a day after its "Hey Siri" fall media event. Today's beta is the same as the second iOS 9.1 beta seeded to developers yesterday.

    Public beta testers who already have iOS 9.1 installed can get the second beta as an over-the-air update, and those interested in getting early release software from Apple can sign up to participate in Apple's Beta Software Program.

    iOS 9.1 is an update mainly designed for the iPad Pro, adding support for accessories like the Smart Keyboard and the Apple Pencil, both of which require deep integration with iOS 9. It will also include support for the new Apple TV.

    The update also includes support for Unicode 8, introducing new emoji like taco, burrito, hot dog, popcorn, turkey, cheese wedge, and more, and it includes a new Siri setting that lets users give voice examples for the "Hey Siri" feature that can be activated whenever the iPhone is connected to power. With the new iPhone 6s, the new feature will be essential because "Hey Siri" can be used even when an iPhone is not plugged in.

    What are some of the significant changes with this update beyond those listed? Anything hidden found?

    Not sure if you'll be able to do this in future versions, but I was able to update to Developer version of 9.1 beta 2 before this release simply by deleting the iOS Beta Software profile and restarting.

    Did anyone else get this yesterday, late afternoon? I'm a public tester...

    PS: I deleted my Peanut butter profile and was still on 9.1. Maybe thats why I got it yesterday? I'm assuming the one I downloaded must have been the developer version...? (so confused and hating betas)

    PS2: Public beta, not peanut butter. :oops:

    "It includes a new Siri setting that lets users give voice examples for the "Hey Siri" feature that can be activated whenever the iPhone is connected to power."

    I already have this feature in iOS 9, am I missing anything? Just turn off her Siri and turn it back on, then it will ask you for examples. My wife can't activate my iPhone anymore.

    Was there an iPSW for the 6S then? I did not see it when I last checked but the latest was just OTA. Hope so!

    Doesn't work on 9.0.1 with my iPhone 6. Siri tells me to unlock my iPhone first.

    Do you guys have alphanumeric password? It doesn't seem to affect those devices, only the ones with four or six digit passcodes.

    Is TouchID enabled? I think you're unlocking the device while holding the home button to activate Siri, thus allowing you to open the Clock app.
