It’s been just about a week since Apple released the iOS 12 beta for developers and now they pushed the pedal to the metal and released an updated build already.
The Developer Beta 11 and Public Beta 9 were released simultaneously and appear to be aimed towards fixing bugs ‘behind the scenes’. What has changed? A handful of things, including performance improvements on older devices and ARKit 2.0 with shared experiences.
You will also find more of Siri in third party apps and updates to Stocks, Voice Memos, Apple Books and Apple News. The notifications are more manageable and the Voice Memos for the iPad have been redesigned.
There are other small bits and bobs floating about including but not limited to – new FaceTime tones, photo library access button in the Camera app in Messages, all sorts of activity stickers and wallpaper tweaks. The list is long but they are mostly small upgrades, to small things.
Because Apple’s iPhone keynote is just around the corner, the pressure to get a completed iOS 12 version into the hands of the developers is mounting and we can expect as many as five additional releases before September 12th.
