Beta after beta. Apple is either in a rush or just keen on perfecting the upcoming and long-awaited iOS 9.1.
The iPhone company just released a brand new beta version barely days after pushing the last one out to developers.
Among the apps that need fixing on the new beta is the Photo Kit. Dubbed as the most advanced and user-friendly photo editor, Photo Kit expertly prettifies selfie lovers in a few touches. iOS 9.1 will take Photo Kit to the next level, but for now, the team is still fixing the gesture recognizer from the PHLivePhotoView object.
iPhone signature features iCloud back-up, iCloud keychain, and Ulkit also need improvements. iCloud backup errs for those who are using the two-factor authentication while the iCloud chain currently has a set-p glitch that causes a device reboot .
The team is still having trouble on UlKit, or the framework that manages the graphical front-end of the iPhone OS. As a result, the device gets confused when processing touch commands. Perhaps the issue is in its coordination with the iPhone 6's 3D touch screen, which is intended to respond uniquely to a different level of touch pressure.
What are we excited for?
While there is nothing interesting in the fifth beta because it's just another bug fix release, the previous betas revealed a number of fun stuff.
iOS 9.1 is packed with fresh wallpapers of Jupiter, Mars, Neptune and a desert landscape. There will also be developer support for Live Photos.
The keyboard will include a bunch of new emoji such as the burrito, avocado, unicorn, taco and a new mystery eye emoji. The shift and delete keys will also be tweaked.
Anticipating the fall release of the iPad Pro and Apple TV, the update will include support for the two gadgets, as well as the Apple Pencil.
iOS 9.1 will be launched soon. For now, the beta versions are kept among iOS developers — or anyone with access to public betas — as an over-the-air update or as a download through iTunes.
Apple encourages fans to sign up to the Applle Beta Software Program.
