Yesterday, Apple shared the first beta of their upcoming iOS 11.2 update to developers, only two weeks after the release of 11.0.3 and while the 11.1 update is still in testing.
Although it is not yet clear what is in the iOS 11.2 beta, it could introduce support for features that have not yet been included in the iOS 11 release. Apple said that peer-to-peer Apple Pay payments and iCloud support for iMessages will be released in future iOS 11 updates but neither of these has appeared in the iOS 11.1 beta although Apple Pay Cash has been tested.
iOS 11 is a major update to Apple’s operating system, with design tweaks, a new Lock Screen, a revamped Control Center and an entirely new interface for the iPad that includes a Dock, Drag and Drop support and a redesigned App Switcher for easier multitasking.
11.2 also introduces a fix for an animation issue found in the Calculator app, a Now Playing option for content on the Apple TV in the Control Center, a redesigned camera emoji and a loading animation for Live Photos. It has also introduced the TV app for Norway and Sweden.
