iOS 18 beta 2 now available: discover all the new features that have come to iPhone
These are the new features of iOS 18 beta 2

We present all the new features of iOS 18 beta 2, a version released just two weeks after the first beta version of this new operating system for iPhone. This update includes some interesting features and, most importantly, important bug fixes that the first version that was released on June 10 had.

In this article, we will list the new features introduced in iOS 18 beta 2 so that you are aware of the additions in this new version. However, there’s bad news if you’re based in the EU, as some features, such as iPhone Mirroring that allows you to use your iPhone from your Mac, won’t be available this year.

What’s new in iOS 18 beta 2

Below, we detail in the form of a list all the new features of iOS 18 beta 2 that have arrived on the iPhone, so that you can know them easily and quickly:

  • iPhone Mirroring: This feature allows you to operate your iPhone from your Mac. Although it is already available, it will not be implemented in Europe this year. Recall that Apple announced that this feature, along with the new SharePlay feature, will not reach users in the region this year.
  • RCS in Messages: Although it seems that the operators are starting to activate it, the activation switch is already available in the settings.
  • Dark Mode App Store Icon: The App Store icon now has a dark mode version, with a black background and a blue ‘A’.
  • New widget for the Wallet app: A new widget called Connected Cards has been added, although it seems that it is not yet operational.
  • Changes to the Passwords app: A new ‘+’ button has been introduced to make it easier to add passwords. In the previous beta, you had to navigate to see all the passwords.
  • Small change in Control Center: When you press the button to turn off the iPhone, you now feel a more pronounced vibration.
  • DMA changes in iPadOS 18: The second beta of iOS 18 has added support for third-party app marketplaces and the ability to download apps directly from the web.

In addition to these new features, bugs have also been fixed, such as lag when typing with the keyboard, excessive sensitivity of the Control Center that put it in edit mode when invoking it, and an issue that prevented assigning shortcuts as shortcuts from the lock screen. It seems to be a version that has brought both new features and bug fixes.

Recall that the iOS 18 public beta will be released next month, possibly during the second week of July. The current beta is very good and the public beta is usually the third of developers so that public testers do not encounter too many problems when testing the beta.
