Apple releases iOS 9.2 beta 2 with AT&T NumberSync for public testers


Apple has released the second beta version of iOS 9.2 to users running the iOS public beta. The pre-release software was pushed out to developers yesterday alongside new versions of OS X, Xcode, and tvOS.

In this new beta, users will find the ability to take advantage of AT&T’s NumberSync offering, which allows other devices such as a Mac or iPad to make and receive phone calls using a customer’s iPhone number without actually being connected to the phone.

The new beta is available from the Software Update section of the Settings app on devices running the existing public beta build. Users who aren’t currently on the public beta can download the profile require to access it from the Apple beta website.

    i updated via over the air and my phone went in to recovery mode. Had to plug it in to iTunes and update back to iOS 9.1. Has anyone else had any issues?

    As a T-Mobile customer, lol.

  4. Anyone else having issues with SMS forwarding after enabling this? I’m getting all kinds of “message not sent” errors when trying to send SMS via Messages on my MacBook Pro since I enabled this feature.

    Is there an extra charge for iPad being connected to cellular or does my iPhone line cover an iPad and laptop?
