Apple has released the first beta of iOS 12.2 to developers today following the public release of iOS 12.1.3, macOS 10.14.3, watchOS 5.1.3, and tvOS 12.1.2 on Wednesday.
The update adds a selection of new features and design tweaks to iOS, with one of the main updates being the introduction of the Apple News service in Canada.
The Wallet app has had a handful of minor tweaks such as relocating the info button to the top of the display and a new “Done” button instead of an option to tap other cards at the bottom of the app. – Apple is also changing the way you see your recent Wallet transactions by showing a longer history in the app.
Apple is also now paving a way for users to add their TVs to HomeKit following the recent announcements that brand such as LG and Samsung will offer AirPlay 2 and HomeKit support through software updates and as standard with future TV models.
Maps now shows a new option to display Air Quality alongside weather readings, and Safari is now clearly labelling websites that do not use a secure HTTPS connection with a “Not Secure” tag in the address bar, something previously hidden in iOS until a user tried entering sensitive information, such as an email address or password, into the site.
Alongside iOS 12.2 beta 1 today, Apple has also launched watchOS 5.2, tvOS 12.2, macOS 10.14.4, and Xcode 10.2 beta 1.
