Apple Releases Second Beta of iOS 11.2.5 for Public Beta Testers

Apple today released the second public beta of iOS 11.2.5 to its public beta testing group, one week after seeding the first public beta and one week after releasing iOS 11.2.1, an update that addressed a HomeKit vulnerability. Today's beta is identical to the beta that was provided to developers yesterday.

Beta testers who are members of Apple's beta testing program will receive the iOS 11.2.5 beta update over-the-air after installing the proper certificate on an iOS device.

Those who want to join the beta testing program can sign up on Apple's beta testing website, which gives users access to iOS, macOS, and tvOS betas. iOS betas are not always stable and should not be installed on a primary device.

No new features were discovered in the first two developer betas of iOS 11.2.5, so it's not entirely clear what new features this beta introduces.

It's possible it focuses primarily on security improvements and bug fixes, and if that's the case, we may not know the extent of what's in the update until it sees a public release complete with detailed release notes.

Does it fix the 'clicking' haptic bug when dismissing control centre?

I’m running this beta on an iPhone X and I’m not experiencing a clicking haptic bug when I dismiss control center. However, I do not remember experiencing this bug on the previous beta, or the latest official release.
Thanks. Can you please try to (with sound on, not silent) open control centre. Then dismiss it from Home swipe up. Do this 3/4 times and hear click or soft haptic?

I (and all my colleagues) hear a click on 11.2.1

Introduced in 11.2

is iOS11 still a virus on the 6S?

Maybe I will install it if it's stable.
got latest stable version of iOS 11 on my 6S and I can't back up your findings (but I got my battery replaced through the Replacement Program last year, so maybe thats the reason everything working so smooth o_O)

Yes it does. The clicking sound is gone with 11.2.5 Beta 2 very happy. But after installing the beta and deleting my beta profile, i can’t get rid of the developer email app. Well better than the click lol
