Features and changes in iOS 9 beta 2:
App Deletion—iOS 9 now offers to temporarily delete apps to make room for software updates. Once an iOS software update is complete, any deleted apps, along with their settings and data, are automatically reinstated.
Podcasts— Apple’s Podcasts app features a refreshed app icon, with the app itself receiving minor cosmetic changes.
Continuity—Handoff is now available as the leftmost “card” in iOS 9’s redesigned multitasking view. The feature was unavailable in the iOS App Switcher in the first iOS 9 beta.
Low Power Mode—The wording of this feature has been revised slightly. Rather than explicitly stated that Low Power Mode results in “reduced performance,” the updated text says the feature “temporarily reduces power consumption until you can fully charge your iPhone.” In addition, the new wording makes it clear that automatic downloads are disabled when this is on.
iPad keyboard—Apple’s new keyboard on the iPad now includes a new undo/redo button in place of the copy/paste buttons. Copy and paste shortcuts are still available and appear when a block of text is selected.
News setting— The iCloud section in the stock Settings app now has a placeholder toggle to enable Apple News syncing.
Safari—Settings > Safari now includes separate toggles for the Tab and Favorites bar. An option to enable and manage Content Blockers in Safari has been removed from the Settings app.

Search—In addition to producing more results, Spotlight search in iOS 9 beta 2 now includes a section in Settings > General > Search where you can exclude specific third-party apps from search results.
Apple Watch app—The companion Apple Watch app that was included as part of iOS 8.2 has been rechristened as Watch.
