What's new in iOS 11.4 beta 2

Apple on Monday released the second beta of iOS 11.4 to developers, though the software update only includes a few small changes this time around.




There are two notable changes in this update. First is the removal of the stereo pairing option for HomePod that we saw in beta 1. Whether the feature was removed ahead of an official launch alongside HomePod firmware or due to problems is unknown at this time.

Secondly, a new (PRODUCT)RED wallpaper is offered as part of the second beta release. The new wallpaper, which first launched with the (PRODUCT)RED iPhone 8 last week, is still limited to those models, leaving owners of other models like the iPhone X out in the cold.

Other changes we saw in the first beta of iOS 11.4 include the return of Messages in iCloud, the first iteration of the ClassKit framework for developers, and more. Those features continue to be refined in the second beta release.




Have you noticed anything else in the second beta? Let us know in the comments.

    When do we expect to see Messages on iCloud.com?

    Note to voice-over person: please stop pronouncing “a” as “ai”. It should be “ah”. But otherwise thanks for your coverage...

    I have had audio issues since the first version of 11.3 It shows up in all audio applications. Sort of a random digitization of the audio. Anybody else?

    Since installing the beta, links to websites in the facebook app don't appear to be working. Just loads a blank page. Did something change with webkit?

    Seriously, we're going to criticism regionalisms here? 

    How about no.
