Another iOS 12.2 beta is here, two weeks after the previous release.
iOS 12.2 beta 3 is now available to registered developers. If you've registered with Apple as a dev, you can get the update over the air by going into Settings > General > Software Update or by downloading it through Apple's Developer Center.
There have been a few notable changes found in the iOS 12.2 betas so far. These include four new Animoji — a giraffe, a shark, a boar, and an owl — for use in Messages and FaceTime. There's also an updated Apple TV remote in Control Center, support for AirPlay 2 and HomeKit on third-party devices, and a streamlined user interface for the Wallet app.
AT&T customers have also found that iOS 12.2 gives them the 5G E icon that has been so controversial lately. AT&T has been the target of criticism over this 5G E network indicator, which is meant to show when a user is on AT&T's 5G Evolution network. This network uses advanced 4G LTE network technologies, not 5G, to boost download speeds.
Apple hasn't said when iOS 12.2 will launch to the public, but it's likely we'll see at least a couple more beta releases before the full launch.
Also released today is the watchOS 5.2 beta 3 release, which includes a few new Hermès watch faces. Like the iOS 12.2 update, the watchOS 5.2 update will likely go through a couple more beta releases before being released to the public.
