After the Thanksgiving week off, Apple has released a new beta update. iOS 17.2 Beta 4 and iPadOS 17.2 Beta 4 are now available to developers. With the release of the fourth beta and upon analyzing the build number, we are quite close to receiving the public release of iOS 17.2. Check out more details about the iOS 17.2 Beta 4 update.
This week, many users predicted that there is going to be an update this week, either a new beta or a public build (iOS 17.1.2). Yes, we can see a new update for the Public this week, marking a similar occurrence as last year.
Along with the iOS 17.2 Beta 4 and iPadOS 17.2 Beta 4, Apple also released watchOS 10.2 Beta 4, tvOS 17.2 Beta 4, macOS Sonoma 14.2 Beta 4, macOS Ventura 13.6.3 RC4, and macOS Monterey 12.7.2 RC4.
Both iOS 17.2 Beta 4 and iPadOS 17.2 Beta 4 come with build number 21C5054b. The build number ends with b which suggest that we can expect the RC build the week after next followed by the Public build.
The update released recently, so it can take some time to gather all the changes. We will list all the new features and changes below.
- Sound and Haptics are available for Default Alerts
- Collaborate option has been remove from Music Playlist, but it is expected to return maybe with next beta.
- Few other small changes
Currently the iOS 17.2 Beta 4 is available to developers, but it will be available to public beta testers soon maybe later today. If you have already installed the last beta, you will receive the new update directly on your device. To check for the update go to Settings > General > Software Update. The new update will appear if its available.
Before switching to beta build from public build make sure to take backup first. And also charge your iPhone to at least 50%.
