Apple on Tuesday released the fifth betas of iOS 11.2, tvOS 11.2, and macOS 10.13.2. 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 11.2

iOS 11.2 features support for Apple Pay Cash and SiriKit for HomePod (which has been delayed until next year), but outside of that there aren’t many user-facing changes. Here’s our hands-on video with the beta.

tvOS 11.2

tvOS 11.2 improves the media experience for owners of the just-released Apple TV 4K by adding the ability to match the native frame rate and dynamic range of your content. This makes games and other GPU-accelerated content look better, and the new option can be found in Settings.

macOS 10.13.2

macOS High Sierra 10.13.2 appears to be largely a maintenance release as well, with few notable user-facing changes. One small tiny change worth noting is that this update brings support for Apple’s new introductory pricing option for developers of subscription apps.

We’re currently installing today’s betas, and as always, we’ll be sure to report back with any new changes. See any notable differences in today’s betas that we’ve missed? Let us know in the comments below!

    ios 11.2 beta 5 made my ip7 super fast

  • Mr_Coldharbour

    Still no changes to Control Center and the way it behaves?

    • What’s wrong with it? it works as intended and makes more sense. How many times have I wanted to transfer pics using Airdrop and could not because some people want to save an insignificant amount of battery and turn off blutooth.

        Could not agree more.

      • Mr_Coldharbour

        1) not everybody uses airdrop
        2) not everyone has an Apple Pencil, watch, AirPods, etc.
        3) it doesn’t make sense and doesn’t work as intended since the whole purpose of CC was to quickly enable and completely DISABLE wifi and Bluetooth radios.
        4) this poses as a potential security risk leaving these radios on, opens the possibility to that.
        5) it’s just an extra drain on battery life (no matter how small or insignificant it may be or Apple claims it to be, it just is. Radios off is better than them being unnecessarily on).

      • You won’t see any battery improvements period it would be as having them on so I’m not seeing your point, they are idle aren’t taking to many resources and it’s better when everyone has them on so we can use our phones as intended.

      Let it go or move to android.. 🙂

      • Mr_Coldharbour

        I shall do nothing of the sort.

  • Ronny Llerena

    I still have bugs on all of my devices. They haven’t fixed a thing.

  • iByron

    Has the iOS Public Beta been sent, as well?

    • iByron

      Got my answer. Yes, it has.

  • Silently Observing

    Anyone having the freezing issue on iPhone X phone app? I’ve got it and it’s driving me crazy. A solid 3-6 second freeze every time I launch the phone app. Seriously hoping that is fixed.

    • diggitydang

      I noticed general freezing which happened when I updated to iOS11 on my 7 Plus and happens every now and then on my X. They said there was a freezing bug in cold weather which was squashed with the 11.1.2 update. I noticed my freezing was in room temperature though and it has happened a couple of times since the update. Odd.

      • Silently Observing

        Me too. It doesn’t appear to be related to ambient temperature. For me, it’s the phone app. If I switch to it from anything else, it frozen and unresponsive for roughly 3-6 seconds. I sent the bug report to Apple, I’m hoping they received enough to address it.

    • I’ve got this going on on my X, and sometimes favorites won’t even load when I open phone app. Still happening on latest update for me.

    Seems like some links to videos auto play inline in the messages app, muted, without having to hit the play button. Kinda like what IG does when you scroll over a video. New?
