iOS 16.5 Beta 2: what your iPhone could soon receive
Less than a week after Apple released a important security update with iOS 16.4.1, the company rolled out the second beta version of iOS 16.5 on Wednesday. Bug fixes, security updates and new features, like new emoji And Voice isolation in callswere released with iOS 16.4.
New iOS features can be fun, but we recommend only downloading a beta to something other than your primary phone, just in case the new software causes problems. Apple also provides beta testers with an app called Feedback, which they can use to notify the company of any issues with the new software. This way, issues can be resolved before general release.
Here are the new features beta testers can try now with iOS 16.5 beta 2.
Apple News gets a Sports tab
THE Apple News launched in 2015, and the first beta of iOS 16.5 brought a Sports tab to the app for the first time. The tab is in the toolbar at the bottom of your screen when you open the app. Previously, the toolbar displayed tabs for Today, News Plus, Audio, Tracking, and Search. iOS 16.5 beta 1 got rid of the Research tab to make way for the Sports tab.
Ask Siri to start a screen recording
With iOS 16.5 beta 1, you can ask Siri to start a screen recording for you. Prior to this beta, you needed to access add screen recording tool to your control center and then turn on the tool manually. Now asking Siri could save you time because you won’t have to edit the beginning and end of your videos where you turn recording on and off.
It’s unclear when iOS 16.5 will be released to the general public. There is also no guarantee that these beta features will be released with iOS 16.5, or that they will be the only features to be released with the update.
