Here we go again. The elusive AirPlay 2, Messages in iCloud and HomePod stereo pairing features have reappeared in the iOS 11.4 and tvOS 11.4 developer betas. But will they stick around through final release this team? Let’s hope they do. I mean, Apple has to release both AirPlay 2 and Messages in iCloud eventually, no?
The macOS High Sierra 10.13.4 update packs in several under-the-hood tweaks, a bunch of security fixes and some feature additions, including better support for external GPUs, Business Chat in Messages and more. Read the official release notes for detailed information.
Perhaps the two most eagerly anticipated iPhone and iPad features—Messages in iCloud and AirPlay 2—are apparently not ready for prime time yet because they’re nowhere to be seen in the official iOS 11.3 changelog.
Anyone within earshot of your HomePod can invoke Siri and ask her to read your texts or send a message, set a reminder or make a note. Fortunately, you can stop your guests or mischievous family members from using these personal requests on your HomePod.
