What's new in iOS 11.4 beta 2

Chart of the Day

Apple likes to stick to a schedule when it comes to pushing out updates for iOS, and iOS 12 should be no different.

It may be stating the obvious, but iOS has changed nearly beyond all recognition as it competes with its main adversary - Android, while meeting the increasing expectations of us, the users.

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.

So expect Tim Cook and that silver fox Craig Federighi to take to the stage on June 4 and deliver the news.

Ill start by saying that nothing is known about iOS 12 at the moment and everything that follows is the path that we would like to see traveled. According to 9to5Mac, the iOS 11.4 public beta 1 highlights Messages in Cloud, a feature that synchronizes the user's messages in all of his or her owned Apple devices. Numerous users have complaint regarding the issues that they are facing on the new iOS updates.

There will renewed focus on Animoji in iOS 12 with newer characters.

We can take hope that this isnt unprecedented for Apple, as it has taken a similar approach with macOS in previous releases. Apple is also going to acquire the same Always-on Display feature on their upcoming devices with the new iOS 12 update.

Features could even be removed. For example, messages deleted on iPhone automatically disappear on an iPad.

The driving force behind the iPhone, of course, has always been iOS. Accurate information on the extent of the problem yet, but we know what we are talking about thousands of smartphones. One update that could make its way through is group calling for FaceTime, something that's been sorely needed for a while, and was actually supposed to turn up with iOS 11. YouTubes dark theme has been proven to liberate extra battery life on the iPhone X, and with expectations of a second OLED iPhone model joining the iPhone X2 (whatever designation it ends up with) then we expect this to be a sure thing. Yes, there will be a dedicated option to switch to the Dark Mode. That all makes sense from a software engineering perspective but it also means major new features could be thin on the ground come September. The new Notification panel lets you see more of what you want to see.

" Syria indeed today represents the most serious threat to worldwide peace and security", Guterres said . Defence Department said it "does not comment on potential future military actions".

Besides, there were reports that Apple is working on a tool that will help prevent iPhone addiction in kids. All in all, you should expect further refinements and improvements rather than something new and revolutionary.

Enhanced Parental Controls with time-based parameters with a higher level of granularity at an app level would be a great start. But it's worth noting that this only applies to those modela, the replacement of the display which was conducted in third-party workshops, and not in the official service centers of Apple.

New Settings will lets users access and customise the features of the apps more easily. While were on the subject, Wednesday like to see a custom equalizer setting and some of the much proclaimed Machine Learning to enable a dynamic equalizer dependent on the headphones being used or the Genre of music being listened to and so on.

While the Control Center does all the work that the widgets on Android do such as controlling music directly from home screen, but you'll only understand the difference if you've used an Android phone. This has to be balanced with battery life considerations.

The new iOS 12 will bring an improved notifications panel to your device which would look like a lock screen. Now 65 per cent of devices are on iOS 11, according to Apple's Developer website. Everything can be found on the front page, with 3D touch offering a meaningful effect which can also be customized.

Providing developers with an API so they can add their Controls would be the icing on the cake.

With Messages in iCloud, users can see all of the conversations synced between iOS devices and their Mac using iCloud.

Support for 2018s yet to be announced iPhones and iPad Pros. Citing two quick examples, cut, copy & paste didn't even come around to iOS 3 while we had to wait until iOS 9 before a "low power mode" option was made available.
