iOS 17.2 Beta 3 is Out: Check New Features & Changes

With the continuation of releasing the beta testing updates, Apple is here with yet another beta build of a new iOS 17.2 update, the iOS 17.2 beta 3. The brand has rolled out this third beta, including several new features and certain refinements for some existing features. 

Meanwhile, the new iOS 17.2 beta 3 is available to developers only to test out the new features. However, it’s expected that the brand could make the latest update available to all the public beta testers at the end of this week. 

Apple iOS 17.2 beta 3: New Features & Enhancements 

Keyboard

With the iOS 17.2 beta 3 update, users can now turn off the inline predictions while typing. Apple has added a Show Predictions inline toggle, and users can configure it by heading to the Settings app >> General >> Keyboard >> Show Predictions Inline toggle. 

Apple Music Favorite Songs

Apple has added an option to “Favorite songs” in the iOS 17.1 update. Further expanding it, the brand has incorporated a capability to add favourite songs to your Music Library. However, this new feature comes enabled by default and can be easily disabled as per your preferences. 

FaceTime

When joining a FaceTime call, including a person you have already blocked, you will get a warning. Apple will now provide a warning when the blocked contact is trying to join a call you are already on or if you have joined a call with a contact you have blocked previously.   

Phone & FaceTime

Previously available only for the Messages app, now Apple is expanding it to the Phone and FaceTime settings. A new Share Name and Photo option is added within the Phone and FaceTime settings, which is linked to the Contact Poster. Users can easily turn off the toggle, set it to Contacts only, and set it to Always Ask, which will allow access to the permissions each time you are prompted.

Photos

After updating to the iOS 17.2 beta 3 update, if the user opens the Photos app, they will be prompted to allow permission access to Apple Music, music and video activity, and media library. This, in turn, gives the Photos app the ability to use Apple Music to list songs for Memories. Although the Photos app already has the capability to access Apple Music now, with the addition of a new option, users will be able to disable this access.
