Apple is here with the iOS 17.2 Beta 2 and iPadOS Beta 2 update. So, what features does iOS 17.2 Beta 2 stand out with?
Apple is here with the iOS 17 Beta 2 update for developers. Since the update has just been released, new features have not been revealed yet. On the other hand, it is also possible that Apple will simply fix the errors that occurred after the iOS 17.2 Beta 1 update. Again, for now, no new features have emerged in the iPadOS 17.2 Beta 2 update.
iOS 17.2 Beta 2 has been released! So what features did 17.2 Beta 1 offer?
Apple’s Developer Beta versions are not stable like regular iOS updates. Therefore, you may encounter some errors when downloading and installing these versions. Apple collects all bugs and feedback reported through this developer program. For example, the iOS 17.2 update appears more stable thanks to these beta versions.
In this sense, there is a possibility that the features that we encountered in Beta 1 will appear again in iOS 17.2 Beta 2. As we said, Apple refers to the user experience about these new iOS features thanks to these beta versions. In this sense, it is useful to remember the features that come with iOS 17.2 Beta 1.
Apple Journal App
The long-awaited Journal application, which appeared at the iPhone 15 launch, has finally appeared in iOS 17.2 Beta 1. This application allows you to see your daily activities, social media posts and similar actions together. You can also use this area as a diary and add notes.
Collaborative playlist experience for Apple Music
With the iOS 17.2 Beta 1 update, you will now be able to create joint playlists with other Apple Music users. Every user who has access to this playlist will have the right to add or remove favorite tracks. You will also be able to create a playlist from your favorites songs.
Translation feature for action button
Apple added an action button to iPhone 15 Pro models that can be assigned different functions. Previously, only silent Mode, focus, camera, flashlight, voice memo, shortcut and accessibility settings could be assigned. Now it is possible to start a new translation session with the action button.
New widgets for Weather and Clock app
Apple prepared two new widgets for the Weather and Clock application with the 17.2 Beta 1 update. One of them is a small widget where you can see sunrise and sunset times. The other widget has a structure that allows you to see the weather forecast for the next few days.
New iMessage features
Another feature that Apple introduced with 17.2 Beta 1 is contact key verification for iMessage. Thanks to this feature, one can ensure that the message reaches the intended recipient directly. Again, to send emoji via iMessage, it is now possible to send emoji by pressing the message field.
