iOS 11 Beta 2 has been released on 9 October and it looks like it introduced some new changes and features. One of the most important addition to the Beta 2 version of iOS 11 is related to the Unicode 10 Emoji characters. Other new things in the Beta 2 are bug fixes for the Home Screen, tweaks in the SOS Emergency preferences and some multitasking with the 3D touch option.
Two Teams, One iOS
We have two teams: the users of iOS 11 are either excited about the new Emoji, or about the 3D Touch gestures.
The latter option was removed in the previous iOS (Beta 1), but it came back in this new Beta version with an improved animation, being easier to get it started than before. With the 3D touch multitasking option, you can use a device that has this feature enabled and try some commands such as invoking the App Switcher or use it for switching between the last two apps that you recently used.
A lot of iOS 11 users have been pleased about the 3D feature and when they saw it gone, they were quite frustrated about it, as they frequently used it.
If you’re one of those who want to know more about the emoji, then don’t worry as there are new ones available, in different colors and genders, including dinosaurs or a pretzel, a wizard, grasshopper, broccoli, a zombie and a lot more.
For those that have enrolled in the beta testing programs, then they can check out Settings -> General -> Software Update, and see if they have their iOS updated to the last Beta version.
If there are more new features in the iOS 11 Beta that we haven’t mentioned, then we would like to hear them from you and how they impact your experience.
