A few days ago, Apple has released the iOS 9.2 Beta 2 to the developers. Well, it seems that right now, the same version is available for download for anyone who is enrolled into the Apple Public Beta program.

Apple has also released a second beta version of the OS X 10.11.2 yesterday and the first beta of tvOS 9.1 along with a beta version of Xcode.

If you are registered to the iOS beta testing program, you will be able to test out the AT&T’s NumberSync service. The user interface that comes with the new iOS 9.2 BETA features NumberSync, which allows other devices to place calls send texts over Wi-Fi.

With other words, the new feature allows you to make and receive phone calls using your own number from a device such as an iPad or Mac computer without having to be connected directly to the phone.

If you ever used the Continuity functionality from Apple, then you should know that AT&T’s NumberSync is similar. Currently, the iPad, iPod and Mac owners are able to receive and make phone calls via Apple’s Continuity as long as the devices we’ve mentioned above are connected to the same Wi-Fi network with the iPhone.

However, the NumberSync feature is similar, but it doesn’t require the device to be connected to the same wireless network with the iPhone. With other words, the Wi-Fi calling is made via your AT&T account.

So, if you are registered on the Apple’s Public Beta program, you can install the iOS 9.2 Beta 2, you can check already download the OTA update on your iDevice. If you didn’t receive the notification with the OTA update yet, you can manually check for it by going to your device’s Settings->General->Software Update.
