iOS 4.2 beta has been released a couple days ago, and it apparently comes with a few new features that 9 to 5 Mac tracked down. Now it’s nothing breathtaking but it’s nice to see iOS being tweaked a bit to make it even better than it already is.
Here is a list of new features you can find in iOS 4.2:
- Assign SMS tone to individual contacts – this one is way overdue. Now you’ll be able to give your girlfriend/boyfriend/whoever a specific ringtone.
- Enhanced sound preferences – the volume of the ringer and alerts can be adjusted using the volume buttons
- FaceTime icon in SMS app – this makes it quicker for you to start a FaceTime call directly from within the SMS app
- New Voice Memos app icon
- New restrictions added to the settings – installing, editing and mail accounts added to restrictions
- YouTube like/dislike – you now have buttons to like or dislike a video
- Find in Page – lets you easily find text on a web page in Safari
Like I said, nothing amazing. I’m really looking forward to the Find in Page feature!
