Apple has released iOS 17.2 beta 2 to developers, just three days after the rollout of iOS 17.1.1, addressing wireless charging in specific cars and addressing issues with the Weather widget on the lock screen. 

It is important to note that only registered developers have access to download and install this second beta of iOS 17.2 on their iPhones.

Here is everything that iOS 17.2 beta 2 update offers:

Spatial video recording

In iOS 17.2 beta 2, Apple introduces a new feature enabling the iPhone to capture spatial videos. These videos, shot in landscape orientation at 1080p and 30 frames per second, can be viewed on the Apple Vision Pro, the company's inaugural spatial computer. 

It is worth mentioning that this capability is exclusive to the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max. Although the Apple Vision Pro is not yet available to the public, prospective purchasers can enjoy their recorded videos through the Photos app on the Vision Pro.

Expansion of Sensitive Contact Warning

With the release of iOS 17.2, Apple has broadened the functionality of its Sensitive Contact Warning feature. This enhancement now extends its compatibility to Contact Posters within multiple applications, including Phone, Contacts, and Messages.

Other features

The much-anticipated Journal app is expected to be part of the upcoming iOS 17.2 update, slated for a likely release in December. This update also brings iMessage Contact Key Verification, additional weather widgets, a new digital clock, and enhancements to Contact Poster, Messages, Apple Music, among other improvements. Apple has introduced sticker reactions on iMessage and a new Translate feature for the Action Button.
