We reported yesterday that, after having some downtime issues with several of its services, Apple started seeding the fourth Beta build of the anticipated iOS 9 mobile operating system.
The iOS 9 Beta 4 release for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch is available to developers enrolled in the Apple Developer Program, but today Apple announced that the second Public Beta build of iOS 9 is available to users worldwide through the regular channels.
Anyone who wants to jump ship and install the Public Beta build of the next-generation iOS 9 mobile operating system from Apple can do so by reading our in-depth how to install iOS 9 Public Beta on iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices tutorial.
As you can see from the screenshot attached on the right, Apple did not publish any details about the new features or bugfixes implemented in the second Public Beta build of iOS 9, but rest assured that there are many under-the-hood improvements.
On iPhone 6, the update has approximately 300 MB, so it should be an easy update for everyone. After the update, you will notice that some icons in the Settings app have been changed.
Once again, we remind you that if you want to move to the Beta builds of iOS 9, you must read the tutorial linked above. Those of you who already have the first Public Beta build of iOS 9 installed on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch devices can update to iOS 9 Public Beta 2 right now.
To do so, open the Settings app, go to General, and then to Software Update. Wait for the iOS 9 Public Beta 2 update to appear, press the "Download and Install" button, agree to the license agreement, and wait for the update to be downloaded and installed. Let us know if you find some hidden gems in iOS 9 after the update!
