iOS 9.2 Public Beta 1 edition becomes available one day after the same firmware was released to those users owning an Apple developer account. The update includes the traditional bug fixes as well as noticeable Safari update. More precise, the embedded Safari views have received the latest features available within the Safari app. I’m talking about options like press & hold the reload page button to unveil the Desktop version of the current website or to load it without using content blockers (if you use such software on your iPhone).
iOS 9.2 Beta 1 Add-Ons
Yes, all these changes were introduced with the 9.1 release, however they were available only within the Safari app. Now, they’ve can be used within the Safari embedded views too. That’s every time when you’re opening a link, from a third party app, with the help of the built-in iOS browser.
More, some share extensions were also not available with the third party Safari embedded views. All share sheet options available while browsing from the Safari app are now available within the View Controller too. One simple example would be the 1Password share extension.
