Apple hasn't even officially released iOS 11.1, macOS High Sierra 10.13.1, watchOS 4.1 and tvOS 11.1 for all users (this should happen this week, yet), but the wheel is still spinning.
Today, it has already made available to developers the first beta versions of iOS 11.2 (compilation 15C5092b), from watchOS 4.2 (15S5085b) and the tvOS 11.2 (15K5085b). The first for macOS High Sierra 10.13.2 has not arrived yet, but it should land soon.
So far we do not know what is new in them other than further improvements and bug fixes (which are always expected), but as soon as something comes up, we will update this article informing you.
Most likely we will have a few weeks and several test compilations ahead, so I would not wait for the release of these new versions to the general public before December.
Members of the Apple Beta Software Program should receive these first builds of iOS 11.2 and tvOS 11.2 very soon, too. Remember, watchOS does not participate in the public testing program.

IOS 11.2 introduces the framework SiriKit to HomePod, allowing developers to integrate their apps via exclusive voice commands with the Apple speaker that hits the market in December including messaging apps, lists and notes.
There are also new wallpapers that were previously available on only certain devices:

In addition, it corrects a Calculator bug that has circulated the blogosphere in the last few days, which generates erroneous results when you type too fast due to the animations when we touch the buttons (try adding 1 + 2 + 3, for example).
For now, nothing about the awaited Messages on iCloud.
Update II 10/30/2017 s 17:54
Speaking of HomePod, the hacker / developer Guilherme Rambo sent us pieces of HomePod codes that already show a series of phrases from Siri in Portuguese:
This, in particular, is very cool:
Hi, my name Siri. a pleasure to come out of that box. To get my attention, say E to Siri.
It is also a good indication that it should not be long before Apple starts supporting Siri in Portuguese on HomePod. So we hope!

Apple has also just released the first beta of macOS High Sierra 10.13.2 (build 17C60c) for developers who, like other systems, should soon paint in the Apple Beta Software Program as well.
With him, the first beta of Xcode 9.2 (build 9C32c) was also made available to developers.
Update IV, by Bruno Santana 10/31/2017 s 17:50
A good news is also on the way to Apple TV, as seen in the first beta of tvOS 11.2: from the next version of the system, it will be possible to configure the device so that its reproduction corresponds to that native of the content being displayed, both in terms of frequency as in HDR mode.
To do this, it will be necessary to go to a new menu in the settings, called Match Content, and turn on the options Match Dynamic Range and Match Frame Rate; both will turn off by default. With that, Ma's black box changes its display settings to exactly match the video in question, without making upscaling or downscaling for user preference. Good news for digital content purists who like to watch their films and series always in the original format provided.

And, as expected, the first betas of iOS 11.2 and tvOS 11.2 are already publicly available through the Apple Beta Software Program. MacOS High Sierra 10.13.2 is also expected to be available there in the next few hours, but has not yet joined colleagues. WatchOS, as is well known, does not enter the cake and can only be tested by developers, even.
Update VI by Priscila Klopper 11/03/2017 s 15:30
Developers and beta testers who already installed the first beta of iOS 11.2 will not be able to restore your backups on iPhone X. As the MacRumors, it seems that the new device does not yet have the latest beta version of the system and therefore anyone who has already upgraded to that version will not be able to access the backup on the device.
Owners of iPhone X will then need to wait for Apple to release the version that does not have a deadline to exit or may downgrade to version 11.1. Another option is not to restore anything and, on the new device, download all the applications you want again and configure it again, which can be a bit of a stressful and time-consuming process.
Anyway, if you plan to buy an iPhone X that apparently comes with iOS 11.0.1 installed and is already on iOS 11.2 beta, it is good to be aware of this detail and follow if the test version arrives soon for the device.

I don't know if Apple people follow the news on the media, but it seems that they paid attention to this problem, because the beta of iOS 11.2 is now also available for iPhones X.
Therefore, whoever was concerned, need not worry anymore; and anyone who was concerned can celebrate that there will be no problems restoring the backup on their shiny new iPhone X.
