Download iOS 9.2 Public Beta 2 For iPhone, iPad, iPod touch
After releasing the second developer beta of iOS 9.2 just yesterday, Apple has today seeded iOS 9.2 Public Beta 2 and is now available for download immediately.
Apple is constantly working in the background to improve its software across the board, and having witnessed the release of iOS 9.2 beta 2 just yesterday, the company also took the time to release the second beta of OS X 10.11.2 El Capitan as well as the first developer beta of tvOS 9.1, the software that powers the Apple TV 4. Today, the company has pushed out Public Beta 2 of iOS 9.2, and it’s the same build which was released to paid developers yesterday.
