Apple Seeds Second Betas of iOS 15.2 and iPadOS 15.2 to Developers
Apple today seeded the second betas of upcoming iOS and iPadOS 15.2 updates to developers for testing purposes, one week after seeding the first beta and two weeks after the launch of iOS 15.1 and iPadOS 15.1.
iOS and iPadOS 15.2 add support for App Privacy Report, a feature that Apple first highlighted back at WWDC. With App Privacy Report, you can see how often apps are accessing sensitive info granted to them through privacy permissions, such as location, camera, microphone, and contacts.
The feature also gives you details on the various domains that apps and websites are contacting, so you can keep an eye on what your apps are doing behind the scenes and where your data might be going.
App Privacy Report can be enabled by opening up the Settings app, selecting the Privacy section, and choosing App Privacy Report. From there, you can toggle it on. After you start using apps, data will begin showing up in this spot. Apple shows seven days worth of data.
iOS 15.2 beta 2 adds Apple's Messages Communication Safety feature for kids, and there's a tweaked Notification Summary that gives summaries more of a card-style look.
There's also an update to Emergency SOS. The Auto Call feature can now be enabled by pressing on the side button rapidly or holding down the side button and the volume button together. Apple has added a longer eight second countdown (up from three seconds) to give you more time to cancel an accidental dial.
