Everything New in iOS 13.2 Beta 2: Delete Apps From Home Screen, Emoji, Siri Privacy and More

The first beta of iOS 13.2 brought a handful of changes like Deep Fusion support, Announce Messages With Siri and HomePod handoff options, but iOS 13.2 beta 2 introduces even more significant changes.

There are new emoji and new Siri privacy settings as we outlined earlier today, but there are also some other smaller changes worth highlighting.

- Rearrange Apps - The "Rearrange Apps" option that pops up when 3D Touching or using a Haptic Touch on an app icon is now "Edit Home Screen."


- Delete Apps From Home Screen - There's a new option to delete apps right from the Home screen when pressing on them with a ‌Haptic Touch‌ or 3D Touch.


- New Emoji - iOS 13.2 beta 2 includes support for the Unicode 12 emoji with characters like yawning face, sloth, waffle, falafel, otter, and tons more.

- New Emoji Picker - When using a multi-person emoji, there's a new skin tone picker that lets you select a different skin tone for each person.


- ‌Siri‌ Privacy Splash Screen - When you first install iOS 13.2, there's a new splash screen that lets you opt out of sharing ‌Siri‌ and Dictation audio recordings with Apple.

- Delete ‌Siri‌ History - In the ‌Siri‌ section of the Settings app, there's a new ‌Siri‌ and Dictation option that lets you delete all of the ‌Siri‌ and Dictation history associated with your iPhone from Apple's servers.


- Audio Recordings - In the Analytics and Improvements section of the Privacy portion of the Settings app, there is a new toggle to opt out of sharing your audio recordings with Apple for the purpose of improving ‌Siri‌.


- AirPods Animation - In the last beta, we found images that reveal the design of the third-generation ‌AirPods‌. This beta includes an animation that will walk users through changing the noise cancelation options on the new ‌AirPods‌. Noise cancelation is one of the features expected to be included with the new earbuds.


- Video Recording - When capturing video on the new iPhone 11 and 11 Pro models, you can change the resolution and the frames per seconds settings of the video directly in the Camera app. To do so, tap on the small icons that are located at the top left of the interface. Resolution and FPS can be changed independently depending on where you tap.

I've been waiting 84 years to be able to change recording settings within the camera app. What am I going to complain about now?

The new delete app feature and being able to change the video settings within the camera app are nice touches.

see, i hate when they limit a purely software function (such as changing the resolution and the frames per second settings of the video in this case), to specific hardware in an attempt to steer more people towards buying new phones. so lame.

you can complain that it's only on iPhone 11 models, even though there are a large number of models that have multiple recording options. I'm not on the beta, but that's what the post makes it sound like. It's incredibly frustrating to have to go so out of my way to change such a simple setting.

Please don’t tell me this is an iPhone 11 exclusive feature...

Yay they fixed the super annoying bug when scrolling in the Settings app and you accidentally hit one of the information hyperlinks, and it pops open an information page, e.g in the Siri settings and also in parts of the Home app

All things considered, these are some of the most monumental additions and tweaks one could ever expect from a .1 update, at least when it comes to Apple
