Apple released OS X 10.11.2 El Capitan beta 4 just yesterday for developers and public beta testers both, and today it's iOS 9.2's turn to gather some limelight, as the company sees it fit to release beta 4 of the aforementioned pre-release firmware for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

Just like any other iOS update, developers and public beta testers both can download the new pre-release build - beta 4 - directly over the air, provided that you have a prior version of it running on your iOS device already. If you're planning to update immediately, which we recommend that you should, then here are the steps you should follow to get the ball rolling:

  • Launch the Settings app from your device's home screen.
  • Tap on 'General.'
  • Now tap on 'Software Update.'
  • Wait for a few seconds and the beta 4 download should pop right up. When it does, simply tap the 'Download and install' button to install the latest pre-release build onto your device.

Keep in mind that you would be required to restart your device to complete the overall installation procedure. Also, make sure that your device is charged beyond the 50% mark so that the beta software can go forward with the installation process, otherwise it would stall. We highly recommend that you plug your device to a power outlet before going ahead with the installation, you know, just to be on the safe side.

Those of you who are willing to try out iOS 9.2 public beta right away can do so for free, and we have all the necessary details right here to help you get started.
