I'm excited to try out iOS 9.2 to make sure it's ok with my device as some apple updates slow down devices. I don't know if the PB is a little late but do you all think apple is going to release a public beta ?

Maybe. That said, us thinking one way or another won't really affect what Apple will or won't do.

There is no reason to not expect a PB for 9.2. The iOS public beta profile is good for all betas for iOS 9.

There is two ways this will go.

1: DP gets 1-2 builds before we see the first PB. (Just like we have seen times before where the beta is like DP 3/PB 1)

2: PB 1 gets released in the next day or two. (Just like we've seen times before when the PB gets pushed 1-2 days after the DP)

There is a third way Apple usually handles the DP/PB. That is to release them both the same day (like we saw with 9.1 builds) but that obviously didn't happen.

I strongly recommend that you stay put on 8.4.1. I'm still on 8.4.1, and Apple has said that performance improvements are on the way with 9.2, but in a while as the betas progress.

I don't see why they wouldn't eventually push a 9.2 public beta. Obviously, it is something that the public wants, based on the response to previous public beta builds. As long as 9.2 is something that they plan on testing extensively with the devs (i.e. 3+ dev betas), then I see no reason for Apple to not provide a public beta. On the other hand, if there is only one or two dev betas, I could see how a public beta would be unnecessary (despite the demand for one).

Apple has said no such thing.

Perhaps you read the 9.2 "notes" in the performance thread here, but that was made by a member of this forum who will update the section as reports come in from other users.

Under performance improvements that thread says, "Soon" but that's not from Apple, just the thread starter.

FWIW, Apple may not have said performance improvements specifically in the release notes but there are definitely noticeable performance improvements on 9.2b1 vs 9.1 on my 6S

I feel like if they've only added or changed an API or two (which it seems that might be all really) then there isn't much of a reason for a public beta.

With every release though I'm always hopeful for it to include Apple Pay for Canada and/or VoLTE on my damn iPhone 6+!

Good, I hope that this is also the case for the Air 2.

So that should stop people from simply discussing it? I don't claim to know what Apple is or isn't going to do but I sure as heck can have an opinion about it. And you know what this is? A forum. For people to discuss their opinions.

I just want this beta ASAP. Was very disappointed yesterday when I saw the 9.2 beta release news but then realised it was locked behind a paywall (I'm new to the Apple community so still learning how this all works).

It's not really a "pay wall" per se. Devs pay for the privilege of getting betas, otherwise the public waits for public betas for free.

You can also register your device with a dev service that lets you access betas as if you have a dev account around the net good for 1 year and usually only $5-8 total.

And that was my opinion. Where I didn't say or imply anything about not discussing it.

That was said in June for the release that wrecked the 8.4.1 performance a month ago.

Another person who reads what they want to read. Did you actually bother to read the post I replied to before you began hammering on that keyboard? Let me show you, since I have so much time to devote to repeating myself. Ready, here it comes ...

"I strongly recommend that you stay put on 8.4.1. I'm still on 8.4.1, and Apple has said that performance improvements are on the way with 9.2, but in a while as the betas progress".
Vertsix - MacRumors, 28/10/15.

Did you see it? Let me point out the line in question which prompted the reply, one more time to remove any doubt for you and your friend who pressed that like button. Ready, here it comes ...

"And Apple has said that performance improvements are on the way with 9.2"
Vertsix - Still MacRumors, still 28/10/15.

Has it sunk in yet?

I know Apple said iOS 9 would offer performance improvements at WWDC, but I was replying specifically to the person saying that Apple said performance improvements are "on the way with 9.2", which to me was quite obviously because in the 9.2 beta 1 performance thread that others kindly started, under the section titled "Performance Improvements" they wrote, "Soon". Neither Vertsix nor myself in replying to him were talking about the promises made at WWDC regarding performance, I was commenting solely on the, "On the way in 9.2".

Is that OK for you? Is it clear enough?

Hopefully your "friend" there reads this as well, because it's people like him and you who are the issue on here, leaping on every post and replying via your own incorrect perception, not the factual and rational reason behind them.

Thank you so much for wasting my time.

It's fine, he replied to me ranting about something that was nothing to do with the reply I made to the other user. He's read what he wanted to and thought he was being smart. He's just ended up making a fool of himself.
