iOS 9.2 beta 1 is now available for download on iPhone, iPad and iPod touchReuters

Apple has released the iOS 9.2 beta 1 for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users. The new build comes just a couple of days after the operating system was seeded to developers.

Unlike previous iOS beta builds, the first public beta of iOS 9.2 does not have many new features and comes bundled with just an improved Safari View Controller. The new improvement enables user-installed extensions on the operating system and allows users to browse web content directly through compatible third-party apps. In addition, there are some bug fixes and minor performance improvements.

The iOS 9.2 beta 1 is available as an over-the-air (OTA) update. Users who have already opted for beta testing iOS updates, can install the update on their devices, by going to Software Update under General Settings. You can sign in to the public beta program by visiting Apple's site.

The arrival of the iOS 9.2 beta 1 does not mean that the company will publicly release the final build of iOS 9.2 in the coming days. Last week, Apple had released the final public release of iOS 9.1, with over 150 new emoji characters and security fixes for jailbreak.
