Almost two weeks after the release of the third, Apple released today the fourth beta versions of iOS 12.2 (build 16E5212f), from macOS Mojave 10.14.4 (18E205e), from watchOS 5.2 (16T5212e) and the tvOS 12.2 (16L5212e).
In addition to the new test versions of the operating systems, the company also released the Xcode 10.2 beta 4 (build 10P107d), the Classroom 3.0 for iPad beta 3 (2E25), the Classroom 2.0 for Mac beta 3 (1B28), the macOS Server 5.8 beta 4 (18S2060) and the Apple Configurator 2.9 beta 4 (3J31).
As we have already mentioned, the new version of iOS has already shown us that new AirPods will arrive soon, that Apple News will land in Canada and that new iPads and an iPod touch are also in Apple’s plans for 2019. In addition, the system already brings news related to AirPlay 2 support on televisions, comes with a new “Mirror the Screen” icon in the Control Center, redesigned remote control widget (also in the Control Center), news in Safari and Maps, and more!
In the second beta version of iOS 12.2 they also painted new Animojis (shark, owl, wild boar and giraffe), a “5G E” icon in the iPhones status bar using the AT&T network in the United States, limited access to the accelerometer and gyroscope in Safari, removing the “Ask Not to Track Me” feature and returning the option to mark a podcast episode as already played.
In the third beta, iOS 12.2 came with new discount options for subscriptions for former or current customers, a set of design features (templates) for Siri Shortcuts (iOS and watchOS) and the San Francisco Compact Rounded font for developers (which is widely used in watchOS), Adobe XD design features for watchOS, a refined interface for the Apple TV Remote (both on app itself as well as the feature offered in the Control Center) and a reorganization of the “About” interface (in Settings).
The watchOS 5.2, in turn, won a new exclusive dial of the Hermès model.
If more news comes up in these fourth test versions, we’ll let you know! ?
These new test builds for iOS, macOS and tvOS have also been painted in the Apple Beta Software Program.
