iOS 16.3 Beta 2 New Features

After the Christmas break, Apple is back with its series of beta updates for its users. The last update we received was iOS 16.3 beta 1, and now Apple has released iOS 16.3 beta 2 to the developer. Currently, only the developer beta is out, the public beta has not yet been released. We can expect sometime in the next week or so. Along with iOS 16.3 beta 2, Apple also released iPadOS 16.3 beta 2, watchOS 9.3 beta 2, macOS 13.2 beta 2, and tvOS 16.3 beta 2. iOS 16.3 beta 2 now comes with the features and not many new features as we expected. Let’s dive into the new features of iOS 16.3 beta 2 and see what Apple has in store for us with this new beta test update.

iOS 16.3 beta 2 new features

iOS 16.3 beta 2 has been released to the developers, but the public beta is yet to be released. The developers have got their hands on iOS 16.3 beta 2, but to our disappointment, we can’t expect much from this beta update. According to the sources, iOS 16.3 beta 2 has hardly any new and important features or changes.

This update includes some improvements to the Emergency SOS feature for the latest iPhone 14 models, as well as some minor music tweaks. This update contains a modem upgrade, which is intended to improve connection and call quality, among other things.

. This update also adds Apple’s new Security Keys feature, which lets you use physical security keys on your iPhone and other devices. Speaking of this new feature, we could have the option to use physical security keys to protect Apple IDs. This feature was already released with iOS 16.3 beta 1, but iOS 16.3 beta 3 adds a little more value to this feature. You have an actual hardware device that you can configure to function as the second level of two-factor authentication for your account.

Apple Maps will also see some notable changes. Apple cards have now been upgraded with a new feature that included a parking option. The parking option in Apple Maps is only available in a few cities, so users around the world will have to wait a while before they can use this feature on their iPhone devices.

This change is only accessible with the iPhone 14 models that support the dynamic island feature. The outline for dynamic island activity on dark wallpaper has been further adjusted and the outline is now barely visible making the border more invisible.

Emergency SOS also has some changes, although it is minor. Call with hold and release, call with 5 button presses has had some word changes in this beta 2 of iOS 16.3. we also have a new option to call silently, it says if you start an emergency call using the gesture above the warning alarm and the flashes will be muted.

As for the notes or release, Apple has not provided any information, in fact, no new release notes have been listed for this beta. No new major bugs have been reported so far either. Let’s see where Apple takes us with this update.

That’s it, folks! These are basically all the features we got our hands on recently. If you find any other features in iOS 16.3 beta 2, let us know in the comment box below.

Until next time, with another topic. Until then, Toodles.
