Apple on Tuesday released the third beta seed of the iOS 12.2 update to developers for testing. The new beta comes two weeks following the release of the second beta.
Registered developers can download the new iOS 12.2 beta directly from Apple’s Developer Center, or over-the-air directly to any compatible device with the proper configuration profile installed. (Developers will know what that means.)
While the new beta includes several minor tweaks, bug fixes, and performance enhancements, it also includes a number of noticeable changes.
The Apple TV Remote app has been given a darker interface, in both the Remote app itself and in Control Center.
The second beta of iOS 12.2 included a bug that caused the iPhone’s charge level to be displayed on the Lock Screen instead of the usual Date. Beta 3 fixed that. Too bad they didn’t add an option to show either one, surely there are users that would appreciate that.
The Apple News app’s logo has been changed inside the app, using the “” symbol along with the word “News,” in place of previous versions’ spelled out “Apple News.”
The About screen has been rearranged to be more logical, with information such as the model number and serial number appearing at the top, while carrier info is at the bottom.
Beta three of iOS 12.2 now includes the fix for the Group FaceTime bug, making the feature once again available to iOS 12.2 beta users.
