Apple rolls out iOS 15.2 beta with new features: Everything you need to know

Asia's Tech News Daily

Apple recently rolled out iOS 15.1 which is the first major update for the new operating system. Now, the company has released the first public beta of iOS 15.2 for testing purposes. Unveiled at WWDC in June, iOS 15 brings in notable features to iPhones but few features were missing when the company released the update for eligible iPhone models last month. A couple of those missing features such as SharePlay and ProRes codec for iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max were added with the iOS 15.1 but the users still haven’t received all the promised features.
App Privacy Report

With the iOS 15.2 beta update, the company has added App Privacy Report privacy feature that allows users to see how much of their sensitive information such as location, camera, photos, microphone and others has been accessed by the application installed on their smartphones. It shows a report of what the apps have been doing behind the scenes over the past seven days. If you have installed the new update on your iPhone you can access this feature by going into Settings > Privacy >App Privacy Report. You have to keep the toggle on for a few days before the data can show up here.
Redesigned Notification Summary

Apart from this, the company has also redesigned the Notification Summary feature. Now, when you tap on the summary, you see all the notifications in a single card. On previous iOS versions, the notifications are shown in separate cards.
The Notification Summary feature allows users to schedule all the notifications that they don’t want to see on the lock screen. “Receive a helpful collection of your notifications delivered daily, in the morning and evening, or scheduled at a time you choose. The summary is intelligently ordered by priority, with the most relevant notifications at the top, so you can quickly catch up.” said Apple when it introduced the feature.
Communication Safety

The update also adds the Communication Safety feature that is built into the Messages app on iPhones. The feature warns children and their parents when sexually explicit photos are received or sent from a minor’s device. The company says that it is using on-device machine learning to analyse image attachments on the messages app.
