Apple Seeds Third Beta of iOS 11.2 to Developers [Update: Public Beta Available]

Apple today seeded the third beta of an upcoming iOS 11.2 update to developers, one week after releasing the second iOS 11.2 beta and two weeks after releasing the iOS 11.1 update.

Registered developers can download the new iOS 11.2 beta from Apple's Developer Center or over-the-air once the proper configuration profile has been installed from the Developer Center.


iOS 11.2 introduces Apple Pay Cash, Apple's new peer-to-peer payments service. Apple Pay Cash works through the Messages app and is designed to allow for quick person-to-person money transfers. It's available as a dedicated iMessage app in Messages, with cash transferred through the app.

Cash can be sent from a linked debit or credit card, while received cash is stored in an Apple Pay Cash card in Wallet that can be used for purchases or sent to a bank account.

The iOS 11.2 update also addresses an animation bug in the Calculator app that caused some numbers and symbols to be ignored when entered in rapid succession. The update removes the animations from the calculator app so calculations can be done quickly with no need to pause between entering numbers to obtain the correct result.

In addition to these bug fixes, iOS 11.2 introduces a new Now Playing option for controlling content on the Apple TV in Control Center, redesigned camera emoji, a new loading animation for Live Photos effects, and new Live wallpapers for the iPhone X, plus it adds a feature that lets developers offer new customers discounted introductory pricing for auto-renewable subscriptions on the App Store.

Update: Today's iOS 11.2 beta has also been provided to public beta testers.

Sounds like the final release of 11.2 is probably just about a month away at most.

the more i use the X the more i notice the UI and all the swiping gestures pretty much sucks


SMH...What sucks exactly? I am trying to figure out if I have issues that I am not realizing because all of the gestures are butter for me on 11.2 Beta 2. :confused:

Have you read any of the discussions on this topic? This needs to be there. :confused:


I suppose not everyone who buys these things will be completely technology minded. God help me when my Dad decides he wants one. He likes to have the latest gadgets but uses precisely zero of their abilities, other than to drive me up the wall asking the same question again and again and again and....

Finally, ***** finally. Audi MMI/carplay is functional again. It was almost literally unusable on previous iOS11xx iterations. Was seriously on the cusp of ditching iOS for Android just so I could, you know, play some music.


Sounds like an Audi issue. None of our cars had any CarPlay issues through each of the iOS 11 updates.

Other than the obvious swiping along the bottom bar to move between apps on the X, my most used task switching gesture is just swiping diagonally from either the left or right corner towards the centre of the screen.

Or indeed diagonally from the bar. On my X it instantly activates the task switcher, no waiting for a second for it to kick in. But I suppose it could well be different on other phones for some obscure reason.


thats working for me the swiping diagonally... this could be it, let me try it out throughout the day and report back.
