Earlier this week iOS 15.2 RC and iPadOS 15.2 RC were released. But due to some bug in iPhone 13 running iOS 15.2 RC, today Apple released the second iOS 15.2 release candidate for iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Mini, iPhone 13 Pro, and iPhone 13 Pro Max. Now that today is the last working day of the week, stable iOS 15.2 is more likely to be released early next week.
We’ve seen a bunch of second RC builds this year. If we’re getting the second release candidate, it means that the first RC had a major issue that could affect the iPhone experience on daily use. The second iOS 15.2 release candidate focuses on improvements and improvements to the iPhone 13 series. It also comes with a new modem update to fix the connectivity or network switching issues.
Apart from modem update, you can also expect some other bug fixes like lag or freeze on some apps. Since it is only available for the iPhone 13 series, other iPhones still run on the first RC and will receive the public update with the same build number as the RC1. Whereas in the case of the iPhone 13 series, iOS 15.2 RC2 comes with build number 19C57 and will be available to the public alongside the same build.
