tvOS 15.2 and HomePodOS 15.2 (beta)
While the final version of tvOS 15.1 is now available, Apple is already on the next one. To install tvOS 15.2, developers can go to Xcode and download the relevant profile. A bug has in particular been fixed here on the side of SwiftUI.
The HomePod operating system is also going to 15.2 for developers only.
iOS 15.2 and iPadOS 15.2: what’s new in beta
To find out how to install a new version of iOS, it’s right here. As it is a beta developer today, you will need to have joined the associated program upstream.
- App Privacy Report : to know how often each app accesses data such as your geolocation, your photos, the camera, the microphone and the contacts during the last seven days. Also specifies which apps broadcast to other domains and when it last happened. To access it, you have to go to Settings> Privacy> Privacy report.
- Emergency call : a user can now press the power button located on the edge of the iPhone several times in a row and quickly to call for help. Also works with a long press on this button and the volume button at the same time. Convenient in the event of an assault, with eight seconds elapsing before communication starts versus three before. Perhaps following the false positives reported by the emergency room.
- Summary of notifications : revisited design (see below)
- Security : Messages containing sexually explicit images would soon be reported to children and their parents. To do this, Apple relies on machine learning. Code relating to this feature was indeed found in iOS 15.2 but it seems that we have to wait even longer to be entitled to it.
- App Store : bug fixes
- SwiftUI : bug fixes
Apparently nothing new other than fixes for technical issues. We will update this article otherwise if a change is spotted by beta testers.
