The news: Apple released the second beta of iOS 15.2 to developers on Tuesday morning. Included in this update are a slew of changes…including some features that Apple had announced historically but not yet implemented. Here’s the latest.
New Macro icon in Camera when macro mode is activated (via Zollotech)
Communication Safety will automatically blur nudity received or sent in the Messages app if you are a child for accounts set up as families in iCloud
iCloud+ subscribers can now use the Hide My Email feature directly in the Mail app
Our take: If you’ve been wanting to try out some new features early, this is the best way to hop on and provide feedback before everything is solidified this Fall. From my experience, iOS 15 is absolutely stable enough to be on your daily driver, but proceed with caution as bugs will be there, some of your favorite apps may be glitchy or not work, and battery life won’t be as good as what you see now on iOS 14.
The news: Just over two weeks following the release of iOS 15 beta 1 at WWDC, Apple has issued the second beta update to developers for testing, alongside second betas for macOS, watchOS and tvOS, too.
Here’s what’s new!
Quick Note on iPadOS 15 now works by swiping your finger up from the bottom right hand corner of the display
The news: The third beta of iOS 14.6 has been released to developers.
Code in iOS 14.6 has indicated that Apple is working on a HiFi version of Apple Music and preliminarily supports Apple Card Family
9to5Mac discovered that iOS 14.6 beta 3 now allows you to use an email Adress instead of phone number for AirTag recovery
Our take: Considering there is almost 0 forward-facing changes so far in iOS 14.6, it definitely feels like Apple is holding a lot back for a larger release in the future (e.g. Apple Music HiFi hidden until publicly announced).
