Apple releases second iOS 11.2 beta for iPhone and iPad, watchOS 4.2 beta 2 for Apple Watch

Apple has released the second beta version of iOS 11.2 for iPhone and iPad. iOS 11.2 beta 2 for iPhone X was released on Friday afternoon to add compatibility with the new device, and today’s release is available for other iPhones and iPads.

iPhone X users won’t see today’s update, however, as the first iOS 11.2 beta released on Friday for that device is today’s release for everyone else. Apple has also released the second version of watchOS 4.2 beta.

iOS 11.2 will likely include AirPlay 2 and Apple Pay Cash support in addition to SiriKit for HomePod which was detailed at the end of October.

  • iPhone 8 / 8 Plus / X marketing still wallpapers now available on older iPhones (download here)
