First public beta of iOS 12.2 : What’s New

Last week Apple made the first iOS 12.2 beta available to developers, and three days later the company released the first public iOS 12.2 beta . This beta, besides bringing small improvements focused on performance and security, has also informed us about the release of a new generation of AirPods or the n new iPad and iPod touch that will be presented soon.

The first public iOS 12.2 e beta is available to public beta testers who are registered with the Apple beta program. This is a great opportunity for you to see for yourself what’s new in future software updates without being a developer.

If it’s true that the new features are quite scarce, focusing on small visual touches and especially bug fixing.

Specifically, the new features you will see in this beta version are the following:

  • Initial support for AirPlay 2 compatible televisions. You can view the compatible televisions, presented at CES 2019, here.
  • The screen duplicate icon in the Control Center has been touched up.
  • The Control Center’s Apple TV remote now also works with AirPlay 2-compatible televisions, and it’s been redesigned.
  • Apple News arrives in Canada in French and English.
  • Now it’s easier to see the last transaction in Wallet.
  • On Apple Maps we can check the air quality at certain points.
  • Siri upgrades.

The remaining public operating system betas have also been launched today. Of all these betas, it should be noted that macOS 10.14.4 includes support for dark mode on the websites supported in Safari.

As you can see, the new features are few and they invite us to think whether it is worth subscribing to this betas program since we are running certain risks by being in a beta version.

Leave us in the comment box what you think about this new beta, do you think they are already leaving everything important for iOS 13?
