Apple today seeded the third beta of iOS 9.2 to developers for testing purposes, one week after seeding the second iOS 9.2 beta and three weeks after releasing iOS 9.1 to the public. As a .1 upgrade, iOS 9.2 will mark the second major update to iOS 9.

The new iOS 9.2 beta is available as an over-the-air update and through the Apple Developer Center. Today's beta is also available to public beta testers, and there's also a new version of the Xcode 7.2 beta available.


Earlier betas of iOS 9.2 introduced changes for the Safari View Controller, which is what allows a pop-up Safari window to be used in third-party apps. Safari View Controller now supports third-party Action Extensions, allowing apps like 1Password to be accessed in the Safari view of other apps like Tweetbot.

Safari View Controller has also been updated with the ability to long tap on the Reload button to reload content without content blockers and it now supports the request desktop site function. iOS 9.2 beta 2 improved Safari View Controller further, introducing support for dismissing it with an edge swipe.

Along with improvements to Safari View Controller, iOS 9.2 also introduces support for AT&T's NumberSync Wi-Fi Calling feature and includes bug fixes for iCloud Keychain, Apple Watch syncing and pairing, audio quality when streaming to stereo systems, and more.

I'm still getting iOS 9.2 Public Beta 2 as an available update on mine. Do I have to update to PB 2 before I see the update for PB 3?

Apple has missed a frustrating detail here: Restrictions. iOS restrictions allow children to be safe while on the internet on an iOS device. "Limit Adult Content" in Restrictions settings removes the ability to clear Safari browser history, and it disables Private Mode, UNLESS you're on a 6S or 6S Plus, where 3D Touching the Safari icon allows access to Private Mode regardless of the iOS Restriction. This is very frustrating, because the entire purpose of "Limit Adult Content" can be completely circumvented by a simple 3D Touch. Apple, please fix! Remove Private Mode from the 3D Touch selection of Safari-

Have you contacted Apple about this?

A question to all you developers out there: Does the new Safari View Controller swipe to dismiss function need to be implemented by the developer, or should it be in by default?
I'm going to look into this more elsewhere but would you mind briefly explaining what this is and what its used for. I've seen it, but have not understood what it was covering.
