iOS 17.2 Beta 4 Update Size & Build Number

 

Now I want to talk about the size of the download and of course at the build number. This download was approximately 500 to 600 megabytes of a download and as we go into general here and then we go into the about section. We see here that the latest beta, the build number there it is 21C5O54B.

Now the letter B towards the end of that bill number usually means we’re close to an official release. The next beta should be A, and then we get the RC and official release. We’ll talk about expected release dates.

 

 

iOS 17.2 Beta 4 Good News First

 

Now let’s go ahead and talk about Some Of The Good News First. So the first thing I want to talk about is some of the changes happening within Settings. So as we go into settings general, we now have the coverage section has been renamed right there it is. Apple Care and warranty Let me show you the previous beta, beta 3 here on this iPhone so if we go into settings.

General there it is Coverage has been renamed right there, Apple Care and Warranty and if we tap into this section here, of course we get the Apple Care warranty information just like we did with previous beta. It’s been renamed something minor, but something that I did want to point out.

iOS 17.2 beta 4 lets users change default notification sound; removes collaborative playlists

Now finally after many years, I don’t know how long iPhone users have been wanting this, but if we go into Sound and Haptics, you can now change the default alerts right there and you can also change the default haptics as well. On your iPhone, which I know a lot of you guys have been waiting for years.

A lot of you guys have been asking me for years how to do this. You can now change the default alert and default haptics in iOS finally after. I don’t know how long 12/13/14 years of iOS users winning this, but hey, good news right? Apple has definitely added this within the latest iOS 17.2 Developer Beta 4.

 

 

iOS 17.2 Beta 4 Bad News Second

 

Now let’s go ahead and talk about some of the bad news. Unfortunately, now one of the biggest features coming to the iPhone with iOS 17.2, or at least we’re hoping to get was collaborative playlist with an Apple Music. The ability to share a playlist with family members and friends around you to collaborate on one single playlist.

Well on 17.2 Beta 4 if we tap into a playlist. We no longer have the collaborative playlist option available, so again let’s take a look here at the previous beta.

So if we go into Apple Music here we go into playlist, select the playlist, we have the collaborative playlist option right there it is on the top and of course we can initiate that and start using a collaborative playlist feature with friends and family members around you.

Super cool feature I was hoping to see with iOS 17.4. I’m hoping this change is temporary and hopefully within the next beta and RC will see Apple Re add. That collaborative playlist for Apple Music, which I’m really looking forward to, I really want you guys to try it out.

It’s a really cool feature coming to the iPhone and hopefully it will be back with the next beta.

 

 

Next iOS Beta Release 

 

Now Speaking of the next beta, when can we expect the next beta RCN official release? So based on this week’s build number ending on the letter B, I’m thinking next week we’ll see the letter A towards the end of the bill number. So that means next week on the week of the 4th of December.

Will most likely see one more beta, beta five and then the following week of the 11 will most likely see the RC for iOS 17.2 which will be the release candidate and right before Christmas and holiday break on the week of the 18th will most likely see Apple release iOS 17.2 to everyone worldwide.

So again next week on December the 4th, the week of December the 4th beta 5, the following week RC release candidate, the week of the 18th most likely official release. But of course anything can change. No one really knows exactly when Apple will release the software. This is just based on my experience of years covering iOS.

 

 

iOS 17.1.2 Update Fix Issues

 

Now Apple is also working on iOS 17.1.2 which is a minor software update which is intended to fix a few issues before the release of 17.2. So we still got about 3 weeks. Before we get iOS 17.2, maybe a little more than that. And then Apple will most likely release this week iOS 17.1.2 to address a few bugs and issues to get everything ready for 17.2. So I’m hoping that we see this minor update here tomorrow or the following date.
