In a move that makes sense, Apple is now blocking app reviews from those running the iOS 9 beta. Apps often have trouble when running beta software, and there’s no reason to let them leave reviews. Developers should be happy with this move by Apple.
In typical Apple fashion, the Apple Watch is already grabbing significant market share. Research firm Strategy Analytics estimates the Apple Watch already accounts for 75 percent of the smartwatch market. This is significant as the watch hasn’t been sold very long and had limited retail outlets until recently.
Apple has released the iOS 9 public beta 2 for those of us testing the next big version. It typically has a lot of minor tweaks along with bug fixes and performance improvements.
