Apple seeds iOS 9.2.1 beta 2 to developers

By , Jan 4, 2016

iOS 9.2.1 beta 2 update

Less than three weeks after releasing the first beta of iOS 9.2.1, Apple on Monday seeded iOS 9.2.1 beta 2 to its registered developers. The software is also available to public beta testers who are signed on Apple’s Beta Software Program,

The new pre-release software has a build number of 13D14 and can be applied over-the-air on iPhones, iPads and iPods running a prior beta via Software Update.

A standalone firmware download is available to members of the Apple Developer Program through the company’s official portal for developers.

The new beta comes nearly a month after the public release of iOS 9.2 back on December 8. As indicated by its minor version number increase, this is likely a small bug fix release. We’ll update the post with any new changes as we encounter them.

    FUUUUCKKKKK!! Now it will take even longer for a jailbreak..

    • Vinnie

      Assuming they are waiting on 9.2.1 to release… I’m not holding my breath.

    • Dany Quirion

      Jailbreak lol so 2010

    • Waleed

      yeah 🙁 for sure teams gonna wait for final version of 9.2.1 update ! :/
      imma die to wait so much

        If the bugs are patched in any 9.2.1 beta update, I’m pretty sure they’re gonna release it for 9.2.

      • Which bugs you talking about specifically?

      • Heitor Castro 

        In this case, bugs = exploits used to jailbreak that iOS version.

        bahahaha, dick.

    • Rodney Coleman

      Public beta is out

  • Satyam Panchal

    Come on Apple stop giving fake update we will not release jaibreak until u don’t release 9.2.1 we can wait whatever. Apple better luck next time … This time you can’t patch jaibreak

    • Satyam Panchal

      Maybe they are focusing on performance because of 4s which ppl are screaming about lag

      • Joshua The-Legend Wiebe

        iOS 9 should’ve never been released for any devices under the iPhone 5, that goes for all iPads too, anything under the iPad 4 should’ve stayed on iOS 8.

      • leart

        iPad 3 is not that bad on iOS 9, it’s a 1gb ram device and it can handle it pretty well, almost the same with iPad 4

      • jonny

        Lmao 4S users are gonna have some type of lag regardless.

    • burge

      Maybe the update patches parts of any jailbreak. Apple don’t need to wait to see what holes have been used in a jailbreak to patch them.

    • John

      Actually, I’d like to see you try and beat Apple because it won’t work.
      Cute though, you trying to puff up your chest and act better than Apple.

  • Mohammed Sahib

    It is now available to public beta users. ~23 MB download for iPhone 5, not the usual ~1GB!

  • Nathan

    Anyone notice any differences?

  • Blip dude

    I’m gonna assume once this goes Public, that is more or less when we will see a Jailbreak.

  • Tommy

    maybe bc apple is releasing a beta on a monday we’ll see the official release on wednesday or early next week, then jb

    • Julio Hernandez

      Or you’re just speculating when you really shouldn’t have expectations at all. Better to just wait patiently and not be disappointed. 🙂

  • basilis

    The whole 9.x is a bug, a huge bug. I wish I had stayed in 8.4.1…. My only hope is a major release 9.3 or even 10….

    • HR

      True. Every time an update comes I say “well, let’s see what got worse.”

  • Guy

    Apple only reasons for constantly releasing iOS betas and updates is to slow down jailbreaking.

  • Mr_Coldharbour

    Slightly off-topic, but is anyone experiencing a freeze/hang of about 0.5-1sec when unlocking their iPhone 6S Plus with TouchID? This happens about 5/10 times. I’ve got the iPhone 6S Plus 128GB (silver), setup as NEW device (no restores from backup), on iOS 9.2 (iTunes update, not OTA), already did several reboots and hard resets, no iCloud setup, no animations, no transparency. Anybody?
