iOS 17 beta 2: these are the new features

Shortly after the first version of iOS 17 was released, Apple released another update. In iOS 17 beta 2, several new features are added and a number of things have been fixed. We’ll tell you what’s new!

1. Update screen shows more information about beta versions

Secretly this is not a completely new feature, but the update screen now shows more information about installing beta versions. For example, you will see more details about the beta program and how to make a backup.

2. Location Settings has new options

The location services have been given a few options. You now have the option to turn the ‘Microlocation’ setting on or off. However, Apple does not provide any information about what this feature is used for.

To adjust this setting, click on ‘Settings > Privacy and security > Location services’. Then scroll all the way down and tap ‘System’.

3. Tips on different apps

Several official apps from Apple now provide small tips. For example, when sharing contacts with AirDrop (and NameDrop), you will see a small window that explains the function.

4. Crossfade Apple Music

Crossfade is a new feature of Apple Music that allows you to fade songs into each other. The annoying thing was that the option in the first beta of iOS 17 crashed the app. In this new version everything works properly.

In addition, beta 2 of iOS 17 now also includes an option to adjust the length of the crossfade. Here you have the choice between 1 second and 12 seconds.

5. Standby notifications

The new Stand-by function has already been given an extra feature. You can now turn off notifications. When you turn off the notifications, you will still see ‘critical’ messages.

With Standby

When you turn the iPhone on its side while charging, you will now see a new screen with apps and options. Your iPhone thus becomes a kind of personal hub.

With Standby you can use the iPhone as a kind of alarm clock horizontally next to your bed and show various widgets.

6. Apple Music widget has more options

The widget for Apple Music now comes in more sizes and dimensions. This way you can choose which version you want to put on your iPhone.
