TestFlight gains support for testing apps for iOS 9, watchOS 2

Apple has released an update to its TestFlight beta testing application for iPhone and iPad. TestFlight 1.2 adds support for the testing of iOS 9 and watchOS 2 apps. The app also now lets testers set how they get notifications for beta updates.

Here's what you'll find in TestFlight 1.2:

This update adds support for testing upcoming iOS 9 features — including watchOS 2 apps and App Thinning.

Testers can now choose how to receive update notifications for each app they are testing. Also, watchOS 2 beta apps will install automatically when the "Automatic Downloads" setting is turned on in the Apple Watch app.

Minor stability and performance improvements.

Of course, to take advantage of most of these new capabilities, you'll need a device running iOS 9, which you'll also need to install the watchOS 2 beta. You can grab TestFlight 1.2 from the App Store right now.
