Apple today released the first beta version of the iOS 17.2 and iPadOS 17.2 updates for developer testing purposes, one day after the release of iOS 17.1 and iPadOS 17.1.


Registered developers can participate in betas by opening the Settings app, going to Software Update, tapping Beta Updates, and changing the status to iOS 17 or iPadOS 17 Developer Beta. An Apple ID associated with a developer account is required to download and install the beta version.

There’s no word yet on what’s included in the iOS 17.2 beta, but we’re looking forward to the Journal app, which Apple has said will be coming in the next iOS 17 release. We’re also still waiting for the option to use stickers as a tap reaction in messages, an arrow to follow up on missed message conversations, and a playlist of favorite songs in Apple Music.

We’ll update our article when we learn what’s new in iOS 17.2 beta.
