    Thanks to batting1000 for general template.

    Post any bugs, new features, or changes in iOS 9 beta 2 that you notice compared to iOS 8.3 or 8.4 betas, as well as iOS 9.0 beta 1. This is a wikipost, so anyone can edit in their findings.

    As always, be sure to report any and all bugs to bugreport.apple.com (a developer account is not required to do this)

    Previous thead: beta 1

    Build: 13A4280e

    Issues:

    • Radio tab may not always appear in the Music app.
    • You may see a Black screen when trying to add Google or Yahoo accounts
    • Tapping a Mail message, Maps favorites, Note, or Message in search results does not open the app on some devices
    • iPhone 6 on beta 2 cannot update watch to watchOS2. Keeps getting not connected to internet message. Apple has pulled the update, not due to the 9 Beta 2 update. Update has now been re-realeased.
    • Safari still cannot slide forward using gesture
    • Asks for passcode on every wake, despite having it set to only ask after 4 hours. (1)
    • Can't type a ">" using a Bluetooth keyboard (1)
    • Radio stops playing after song is complete.
    • Yahoo mail does not have push email option
    • Contact search in Spotlight does not function well under either English, Japanese, or Chinese. (Doesn't test other language but suspect this is globally unavailable)
    • Messages search does not show results for messages sent before the update was installed.
    • Restoring from an iCloud backup for a device that uses iCloud Photo Library won't complete, as photo downloads stop before completing. Rebooting causes all thumbnails to become white and missing photos aren't downloaded.
    • Editing playlists (other than deleting) is disabled. Creating playlists doesn't let you name the playlist or add songs.
    • Tapping the name of the song at the top of the mini-player's 3-dot menu no longer takes you to the album containing the song. It does from the Now Playing 3-dot menu though.
    • Pressing clear on notification center doesn't clear the notifications. Only the first one is effected in NC. The rest do clear.
    • Various app performance drop, including stock. (such as marvis, which is nearly unusable in this beta)
    • When selecting words in safari for copy or define purpose, after completing it, tapping the screen may not be able to cancel word selection. Sometimes multiple attempts could be fine, while sometimes only a tab reload could solve this issue.
    * AirPlay on speakers would stop functioning if you open Photos app.
    * Recorded videos would not save properly under most instances.
    * App links would not redirect to App Store when coming from third party apps.
    *In Music app, the Share button in lower left hand corner of Now Playing screen is disabled and you can no longer share a song via iMessage
    Changes:
    • iOS 9 will now ask you if you want it to delete some apps if you don't have enough space to download the update. It will then reinstall the apps it deleted.
    • New Podcasts icon.
    • List view for albums, playlists, etc. in Music is now colored to match the album artwork.
    • CoreAudio Apps (like Garageband etc.) are working now and aren't crashing anymore
    • Podcasts.app layout has been tweaked
    • New buttons to undo/redo text input on iPad keyboard
    • Continuity returns to multitasking view with new design
    • Calendar widgets in Notification Center now shows all events you have tomorrow, rather than most recent upcoming ones.
    • Download/install progress shown while apps updating/installing again.
    • In safari, if you have multiple usernames/passwords for a website, you can press "Passwords" in the keyboard accessory view when on the username/password text field and choose which password you want the system to autocomplete
    • The Tips app is now working in beta 2 with new iOS 9 tips.
    • Playlist info now scrolls away (similar to Safari's search bar) when you scroll up.
    • Tap and hold Safari address bar to copy the address.
    • Radio page in music app works again, when you change your store region to support area (mine is Australia). Beats 1 starts playing, but now it just plays a preview clip. Integrated radio seems work (does not do full test). Start station does not work, yet.
    • In mute Siri only make vibration at start, in 9.0b1 also useless sound.
    • Custom keyboards enabled in spotlight but little microphone (dictation) in search field only enabled with default one.
    • Music app now change the bottom switch to "Show iTunes Purchases" when tapping that little triangle below "Recently Added" section.
    • On phones, option to use side switch for mute or orientation lock that was in b1, is not present in b2.
    • After adding a new card for Apple Pay on the phone you are prompted to add it to your Apple Watch as well. Additionally you can add cards that are already on the phone to the Watch at any time without rescanning them... You just need to verify the CCV number
    • iPhone now knows UK phone area codes, and displays the area for incoming calls, and on the recent calls list (as it has forever with US numbers, may have been in b1?)
    • Tapping on a Favorite's Picture/Icon in the Phone app opens that Contact in the Contact app, with a "Back to Phone" menu option in the Status Bar. Tapping like this on a Contact's Picture/Icon in iOS 8 called the Contact with the associated telephone number. (This may have been present in Beta 1)
    • When listening to music, when notification comes, if notification sound is set, in beta 1, music volume will not reduce to a very low level and insert notification sound. In beta 2, this changes back to previous behaviour, which dramatically reduce the volume of music and highlight notification sound.
    • Press and hold refresh button in safari call desktop site
    • Press and hold address field in safari let you copy it or paste and go
    Performance improvements:
    * App load times have been considerably reduced.
    * Games have a much smoother frame rate.
    * Weather app scrolling now mostly stutter free. (Tested on 6 Plus)

    OTA is probably still being replicated to all the distribution servers, note they have an extra OS now being released so server load and demand is higher, they will stagger the release to lower the load.

    Man, I'm not sure about this one. FaceTime calls don't work on the 6? Think I'll just roll with beta 1 unless I see something else improves. What's this about default apps being disabled?

    This should be called another form of rickrolling, no? We see the update has supposedly been posted, but no OTA... download the entire OS or wait! :p
