With iOS 9.1 being a welcome update — with an assortment of bug fixes and brand new emoji — we’ll keep you updated as to what types of notable tweaks Apple managed to pack into the second substantive upgrade to iOS 9.

That said, MacRumors highlights the only iOS 9.2 addition that has been noticed thus far:

According to the release notes the Safari view window that pops up in some apps will now support third-party Action Extensions. Any Action Extension that works in Safari will also work in SFSafariViewController, allowing it to behave more like the traditional Safari app.

Long tapping on the Reload button in the Safari View Controller will also offer options to reload content without content blockers and request desktop site, as in Safari.
