New iOS features can be fun, but we recommend downloading a beta version only on something other than your primary phone, just in case the new software causes problems. Apple also provides beta testers with an app called Feedback, which they can use to notify the company of any problems in the new software. That way, issues can be addressed before general release.
Here are the new features beta testers can try now with iOS 16.5 beta 2.
Apple News gets a Sports section
Thelaunched in 2015, and the first iOS 16.5 beta brought a Sports tab to the app for the first time. The tab can be found in the toolbar at the bottom of the screen when you open the app. Previously, the toolbar displayed tabs for Today, News Plus, Audio, Following, and Search. iOS 16.5 beta 1 got rid of the Search tab to make room for the Sports tab.
Ask Siri to start a screen recording
With iOS 16.5 beta 1, you can ask Siri to start recording your screen for you. Before this beta version you had to go toto your Control Center, then turn on the tool manually. Now asking Siri can save you time as you won’t have to edit the beginning and end of your videos where you turn the recording on and off.
There is no word on when iOS 16.5 will be released to the general public. There’s also no guarantee that these beta features will be released with iOS 16.5, or that they’ll be the only features coming with the update.
