ios 9.2 beta 4

Following yesterday’s release of OS X El Capitan 10.11.2 beta 4, Apple today posted a fourth beta of the forthcoming iOS 9.2 software update for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.

iOS 9.2 beta 4 (build 13C5075) is now available to members of the Apple Developer Program as an over-the-air update or through Apple’s portal for developers. The update is also available to public beta testers who are signed on the Apple Beta Software Program.

NumberSync and AT&T Wi-Fi Calling

It was iOS 9.2 beta 2 that rolled out support for AT&T’s NumberSync technology two weeks ago. A network-level technology, NumberSync was designed for sharing a phone number with connected devices, regardless of their underlying operating system.

Like the second beta, iOS 9.2 beta 4 taps into NumberSync to enable Wi-Fi Calling for AT&T users via their Mac, even if their iPhone is not nearby or is shut down.

Arabic content via Siri

iOS 9.2 beta 4 also includes support for Arabic in Siri so local users can converse with the personal assistant in Arabic, search for local places and businesses and more.

More capable in-app browsers

An improved Safari View Controller is present in iOS 9.2 beta 4, too, after making its debut in iOS 9.2 beta 1. This feature will improve your experience in in-app browsers based on Safari View Controller, such as Tweetbot.

You’ll be able to access Safari’s third-party Action Extensions (like that from 1Password), request a desktop site, long-tap the Reload button to reload site without content blockers and dismiss the controller with an edge swipe.

Here’s Jeff’s video overview of an improved Safari View Controller.

Last but not least, the public release of iOS 9.2 is expected to bring out support for Apple Pay in Canada and Australia with American Express and bug fixes for iCloud Keychain, Apple Watch syncing and pairing, streaming audio quality and more.

The first betas of iOS 9.2 and Xcode 7.2 were released late last month. We’ll update the article if we find other changes in iOS 9.2 beta 4.

    of great looking forward too IOS 9.2.1 next week

  • Flabalanche

    I seen where Verizon got the thumbs up from the fcc on wifi calling so I wonder if that will be included in 9.2?

    • Bugs Bunnay

      Expect it on ios 10!

      • I can tell you’re joking (at least I think you are ;)) but in all serious it’ll probably happen without a software update. If Apple had to update their software everytime a carrier wanted to enable Wi-fi calling there’d be an update every other day. There’s probably a switch the carrier has to flip and then the option will appear on all compatible devices.

        Sometimes my own jokes get to me… >.<

      • iPhoneWINS

    In other news, the “unbeatable” graphics chip in iPad XL still ranks below the i3 Surface Pro 3 when it comes to onscreen rendering (https://goo. gl/lwb372)…

    Hey can anybody help me? I was suggested to delete the modmyi repo because I kept getting a parsing problem or whatever it was called on Cydia. It worked but anyways there are some tweaks and themes that are only on modmyi and when I try and add it back it get what’s in the attached photo.

    • Leguro

      I would be absolutely sure that the repo address is correct. There isn’t a reason that it would only allow a repo once. Try cutting and pasting the correct address (http://[address]).

      • Jayy

        I entered the modmyi repo as it was in my phone before I deleted it. which is http://apt(.)modmyi(.)com/ and get that “Did not Find Repository” message as soon as I enter it!

      • Mr_Coldharbour

        What @ChrisUpjohn:disqus said is correct, I can vouch for that, I tried entering in ModMyi repo manually in the past with no success. Used the “More Package Sources” button and added it from there.

      • Jayy

        Thank you!

    • Chris

      Use the “More Package Sources” button on the Cydia homepage, you can’t add BigBoss and ModMyi manually due to security restrictions.

      • Jayy

        Wow that was so simple. Thank you very much. This would be the 2nd time you’ve helped me with an issue. I really appreciate it!

      • Chris

        You’re welcome.
