About 24 hours ago, Apple seeded the fourth iOS 9 beta to developers, which included several minor additions such as Picture in Picture support for video podcasts, an adjusted Handoff UI and the return of Home Sharing. Today, Apple let non-developers in on the fun as well with the release of iOS 9 public beta 2.

iOS 9: All the best new features and additions we’ve discovered so far

We haven’t gotten our hands on the change log yet, but we can assume that the updates were virtually identical. If you want to see the full change log for iOS 9 beta 4, be sure to check out our post from Tuesday. You can also install beta 4 without a developer account, but now that public beta 2 is available, there’s probably no need.

The additions in the latest beta update aren’t especially excited, but iOS 9 is bringing plenty of worthwhile improvements to the iPhone and iPad when it officially launches this fall. We put together a list of some of our favorite discoveries from the beta testing period so far which you should check out if you haven’t had a chance to try out iOS 9 yourself.

In addition, members of the Apple Beta Software Program can also download a new OS X El Capitan public beta today. Sign up or sign in at Apple’s website now.
