Hands on with iOS 11.3 beta 3 [video]

iOS 11.3 is inching closer and closer to release. Beta 3 is out with a few noticeable changes from the last beta, two weeks ago.

The biggest changes of note is the latest beta now supports the iPod Touch, and AirPlay 2 has been completely removed.

The removal of AirPlay 2 is the biggest disappointment for me, as I’ve been really enjoying it in the past two betas, and was really hoping for further refinements here in beta 3.

In other changes of note, it overall feels more stable, we’ve seen bugs fixed (such as the placeholder text that appears when deleting a message thread), and it still has solid performance on the geekbench test.

iOS 11.3 is still bringing a ton of new user-facing features including Messages in iCloud, Health Records with partnering medical networks, several new Animoji, and more.

Check out our hands-on with beta 2 to see what changed last time.
