Apple on Monday seeded the second betas of upcoming updates including iOS 11.1, watchOS 4.1, tvOS 11.1 and macOS 10.13.1. Registered developers can install the new betas from Apple’s Developer Center, or by using each platform’s respective over-the-air update mechanism. 

iOS 11.1 beta 2

Beta 2 brings about new emoji from Unicode 10—including face vomiting, exploding head, crazy face, pie and much more. It also appears that beta 2 restores 3D Touch app switching. We’ll of course be checking for any other notable changes, but in the meantime check out our video on what was new in beta 1.

watchOS 4.1 beta 2

Upon first glance, there doesn’t appear to be any significant changes in beta 2 for watchOS 4.1. The first beta, as you may recall, brought about a new Radio app and support for streaming Apple Music over LTE for Apple Watch Series 3 owners.

tvOS 11.1 beta 2

We haven’t seen any major changes in the first or second betas of tvOS 11.1, suggesting that the update is more focused on under-the-hood performance improvements and bug fixes.

macOS High Sierra 10.13.1 beta 2

Similarly, macOS 10.13.1 seems to be more aimed at performance improvements and bug fixes. However, like iOS 11.1, this update will also bring bout the new Unicode 10 emoji.

See any notable changes in today’s betas that we’ve missed?

    Still hoping for Watch ringtones

    • Wilber Alexander Flores

      I bought a watch series 3 and the default ringtone is different or maybe I just never changed it so it chances with 4.0 lol

  • Juschan

    i still dont know if i should update from 10.3.3 .. i dont lose anything like a jailbreak but 11 still dont feels very stable.. what would you recommend?

    • Sailor_V90

      Don’t. You’re not missing anything. Stay on 10.3.3 for as long as you can

      • DaytonaKidd

        Not missing anything? Seems to me YOU missed the whole keynote and reviews done by many sites as iOS 10 & 11 differ significantly in many ways.

        I need Raid to deal with you trolls.

        I agree. iOS 11 is not finished AT ALL. Especially if you have an older device. Clean install on 7 Plus, and still seeing visual bugs, crashes, jittery animations. Frustrating and sad that they released it like this.

    hopefully this fixes iMessage because sometimes I can’t scroll all the way down when texting, that every time I use a keyboard I get iPhone X bar at the bottom.

    Glad that the old 3D Touch app switcher gesture is back. However, I’m hoping that the old Control Centre behaviour of WiFi and bluetooth makes a return. Also the fact that Notification Centre still defaults to the Notifications view instead of remembering your last used view (in my case being always the widgets/today screen). For these reasons I’m staying put on iOS 10.3.3.

    After installing High Sierra 10.13.1 beta 1, Daisy Disk was showing 8GB of hidden space, now after 10.13.1 beta 2 it is showing 14.5 GB of hidden space. Where is this space gone? Any workarounds?

  • Kenneth Delgado

    Is a new Public Beta out?

  • I hope it fixes the 11.1 battery drain in my iPhone 7 plus from the beta 1.

  • Cr00ner

    Hoping one of the bugs fixed on macOS High Sierra 10.13.1 is the audio file [mp3/aac etc] embedded artwork issue where currently none is shown #SmallButAnnoying
