IOS 12 Beta 2 Release Notes, Changes: Here’s Everything New

Apps & Software								Image Source Apple

Apple on Tuesday unleashed the second beta build of iOS 12 (beta 2), in addition to new beta releases for watchOS 5, tvOS 12 and macOS Mojave 10.14, to registered software developers - the most infamous of whom wasted not a second of time digging into the new OS code for any sign of hidden hints about upcoming Apple products. Public betas for iOS 12 and tvOS 12 aren't expected to materialize until July, and will likely come following the third developer beta release.

Screen Time is accessible through the Settings app, and its main page shows how much users spend on their iPhone each day. With the new FCC regulation, 80 percent of callers have to be identified within 50 meters by 2021.

The second beta of iOS 12 takes less space than the first beta and Geekbench results remain relatively the same.


The Screen Time feature does not provide any analysis or recommendations, as its goal is to only provide people with data on how much they use their iPhone.

Overall, iOS 12 beta 2 no longer has apps crashing as frequently, has speed improvements and also lag has been reduced, while Global Positioning System now functions properly again. The tweaks are also made to Battery Usage Apple has made it easier to see which apps are eating up battery. In iOS 12 beta 2 it has been redesigned, and some of the wording has been updated in this section. What has been added is that the option to view the screen on time activity based on the device or multiple devices. This version of iOS supports more devices than ever, but there are still some left out. While unlocking content using Face ID, the iPhone X now says "Scanning with Face ID". For instance, the weather app is not functional and universal links might not open the app. Netflix might not work properly, and Twitter might not either.
