Just a week after Thursdays, Apple has released today the sixth beta versions of iOS 12.2 (compilation 16E5227a) of macOS Mojave 10.14.4 (18E220a) of watchOS 5.2 (16T5225a) and the tvOS 12.2 (16L5226a).
Due to the proximity between the last beta and this one, it is very likely that we are reaching the final stage of development of these updates and that they will be released to all users, who knows, after next week's special event.
The new version of iOS has already shown us that new AirPods will be coming soon, that Apple News will land in Canada, and that an iPod touch is in Ma's plans for 2019 (in addition to the new iPads released earlier today). In addition, the system already brings news related to AirPlay 2 support on televisions, comes with a new “Mirror Screen” icon in Control Center, redesigned remote control widget (also in Control Center), news in Safari and on Maps, and more!
In the second beta of iOS 12.2 they also painted new Animojis (shark, owl, wild boar and giraffe), a “5G E” icon on iPhones status bar using AT&T network in the United States, limited access to accelerometer and gyroscope In Safari, removing the Ask Me Not Track feature is around the option to mark a podcast episode as already played.
Already in the third beta, iOS 12.2 came with new subscription discount options for former or current customers, a set of design features (templates) for Siri Shortcuts (iOS and watchOS) and the San Francisco Compact Rounded developer font (which is often used in watchOS), Adobe XD design features for watchOS, a refined interface for Apple TV Remote (both in-app). itself in the feature offered in the Control Center) and a reorganization of the About interface (under Settings).
On Wednesday, Apple introduced new Apple News icons (iOS, macOS, and watchOS), a new Apple TV Remote icon in Control Center (which now has a representation of a remote control from Apple set top box instead of the tv inscription, and the "Playing" remodeling (with the new Apple TV Remote icon and volume controls).
By Thursday, we see that the ECG feature may stop working for people outside the US, and iMessage's audio has improved a lot.
WatchOS 5.2, in turn, has gained a new exclusive dial of the Herms model.
These new test builds from iOS, macOS, and tvOS should soon paint in the Apple Beta Software Program (watchOS is not part of it). If more news comes along in these fifth test versions, we'll let you know! 😉
