iOS 9 main

Apple has just released the second betas of iOS 9 and watch OS 2 software updates and they are now available for download. For now only registered Apple developers can download the updates, which are available through the Dev Center. Developers can also download the update, whose build number is 13A4280e over-the-air by going to Settings app on their devices. iOS 9 beta 2 has been released for all compatible devices including models of iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. While iOS 9 is scheduled to get a public beta release in July, this release is only for developers.

Similarly, the watchOS 2 beta 2 can be installed on Watch devices through the iPhone’s Watch companion app.

Alongside iOS 9 beta 2 and watchOS 2 beta 2 Apple has also released Xcode 7 beta 2 and OS X 10.11 El Capitan Developer Preview 2, both of which are also available through the developer portal.

iOS 9 brings several major new features to iOS devices while enhancing the ones that are already there. Some of the notable features include Proactive menu, enhancement for stock apps, more powerful Siri, split screen feature for iPads and more.

iOS 9 will be publicly released for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch later this year. You can read about it in detail and learn about all the new features that are part of iOS 9 here.

Update: Following the release of the beta 2 update a new feature of iOS 9 has been discovered. This new feature allows users to authorize iOS to temporarily delete apps from a device in order to free up space for the installation of software update. After installing the update iOS automatically reinstalls the app it removed. This new feature will definitely make the life of users easier, who find it troubling to free up space on their iPhone or iPad before installing new updates over-the-air.
