iOS 9.2 beta 2

Apple releases iOS 9.2 beta 2 with AT&T Wi-Fi Calling for public beta testers

If you’re signed on for the Apple Beta Software Program, you can now take iOS 9.2 beta 2, which was released yesterday, for a spin on your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad.

The second beta of the forthcoming iOS 9.2 software update delivers additional fixes and enhancements for the Apple Watch, Audio, Networking and Safari, while enabling AT&T Wi-Fi Calling on the Mac.

iOS 9.2 beta 2 brings AT&T Wi-Fi Calling to the Mac

The latest beta version of what would become the second major update to iOS 9, which was seeded to developers yesterday, enables Wi-Fi Calling through AT&T on your Mac, 9to5Mac discovered.

While Wi-Fi Calling allows you to place a phone call in an area with little or no cellular coverage, bringing AT&T Wi-Fi Calling to the Mac and other devices you own lets you make and receive phone calls on your Mac (or iPad or iPod touch, for that matter) without needing to be on the same network, or even in the same area, as your iPhone.
