iOS 14.2 Beta 2 is Out! – What’s New?

by birtanpublished on October 2, 2020

Hi everyone aaron here for zollotech and today apple released ios 14.2 developer beta 2. now if you're wondering where public beta 2 is well by the time you're watching this video it could be out and if it is i'll let you know in the comments below but sometimes it would be the next day so we'll just have to wait and see but hopefully it's out by the time you're watching this video now this particular update came in at 1.14 gigabytes on my iphone 11 pro max and i saw it vary all the way up to four gigabytes depending on the device you're

Having so it really depends on what device you have but you could see it even smaller than this or even larger now along with ios 14.2 developer beta 2 apple also released ipad os 14.2 beta 2 watch os 7.1 beta 2 which fixes that blood oximetry issue if you were on the betas and then also tvos 14.2 beta 2 as well as mac os big sur beta 9. now we're still waiting for mac os big sur to release to the public so hopefully we'll see that in a couple

Weeks now let's go ahead and take a look at what's new now let's go ahead and take a look at the build number we'll go to settings general then about and you can see the build number is 18b 5061e and so we're a little ways off from the final version of course with the e being at the end and also included in this specific update is support now for iphone 10r and iphone 11. so if you weren't able to get it before

Initially they released it but then they pulled it from the iphone 11 and 10r due to problems and now it's back so you should be able to install it also watch faces are back if you're running watch os 7 or the betas and you're having problems with watch faces they're now back on 7.1 beta 2. now there's a modem update for the specific update and that is for my iphone 11 pro max it may vary from device to device but i do have a modem update so if you were having connectivity issues i really wasn't having any with beta 1 but

If you were having them there is an update so hopefully it improves it this doesn't count for wi-fi or bluetooth where people were having issue issues before now the first new thing has to do with emoji apple has finally updated ios 14.2 with the expected emoji 13 release and so here are all of the different ones so starting from at the top here you've got a disguised face pinched fingers a ninja an anatomical heart and there's quite a few new ones and there's different colors for each one of

These as well i just used the generic yellow ones but as you can see everything from elevator down to the bottom you've got a bunch of different ones a military hat a sandal a needle with thread and on and on and on so this was this is just to comply with version 13 of emoji so this goes across everything from ios to android to windows so as long as those manufacturers update it it will work across those devices

Now another thing they've changed again has to do within the control center where it says not playing if we press and hold on this it's a little bit different now i'm seeing suggestions here if i go on ios 14.2 beta 1 press and hold you'll see that it looks a little bit different on beta 1 on beta 2 it's actually filling in the music some people are seeing just this look i'm seeing it update on my iphone 11 pro max with this sort of update so you'll see it could look a little bit different

Depending on which device you're using and also which version you're on now other than that when you go into health there's a new splash screen so let's go into health on the iphone 10r since i haven't opened it yet see if we can find it here just look for health we'll go into health and you'll see there's a new splash screen that says improve health and activity so it says share my data with apple don't share my data and it has examples of data and usage so

It's up to you whether or not you want to share this but this is just something new as far as a splash screen that shows up in this beta now if you don't want to share it you're good to go so nothing new there now that's really it as far as anything that's specific new that you can see initially but there are some new changes to the wording thanks to my friend steve mosher who actually informed me of this it's hard to find some of these so let's go into the watch app

And under the watch app under noise some of the wording has changed as well as under hand washing as well so they've just updated some of the wording within hand washing and it just let you know as far as data collection if you're using that with hand washing so there's some updated wording there and that's really it for this particular update it's basically an emoji update as well as a new splash screen some small tweaks and changes right now and there's no known issues listed in apple's notes for this update but the good thing is there's a bunch of

Bug fixes in fact they've fixed every bug they mentioned in the previous version so if you're having issues in beta 1 with say airplay it seems to be working they didn't mention that specifically but i noticed it was super fast in this update also they've fixed apple cache family that's now working and you can now use siri to send audio messages there's a couple developer fixes as well so all of those things are fixed in this particular update now as far as battery life in ios 14.2

Beta 2 well it will take a few days to know but i can share with you my battery life from the previous versions so if i go to my battery battery health again is 95 percent if you've been following along that's after about a year regularly charging it on a stand at night eighty percent after two years is normal so let's take a look at beta 2. so beta or beta 1 beta 1 was not so great you'll see yesterday i had three hours and four minutes of screen on time at 3 hours and 33 minutes of screen off time

With about 30 usage that's not great battery life but that does mean i'm getting about nine hours of screen on time with ios 13.6 13.7 i was getting 10 to 12 hours of screen on time now with beta 2 of 14.2 i may actually be able to hit that again i think apple will fix this problem that we've been having all along so i think ios 14 people that are not seeing phenomenal battery life hopefully we'll get it with this beta now overall performance i played around with this a little bit on the iphone 7

And it seems to be okay while the device is hot from processing the back of this is fairly warm and giving off a lot of heat in general it feels like it's pretty fast so i'm not seeing too many issues here it seems like it's working fine and shouldn't really give too many issues to most people also with ipad os i don't see a whole lot of changes basically the same thing that you have on iphone you get on ipad so ipad os 14.2 beta 2. i put it on the oldest ipad air

Just to show performance as well and you'll see if i open minecraft it should load pretty quickly i haven't opened in a long time but let's see what we get here now overall frame rates appear to be pretty good on minecraft here so that's usually what i'm looking for any stuttering or anything like that and this is the older ipad air 2 so this is the oldest one of the oldest supported devices and the back is getting a little bit warm as i'm playing it but performance seems to be pretty decent in

Fact benchmarks show that it seems to be pretty good overall so for example if i go into geekbench 5 here that i have on my 11 pro max i scored 1338 for single core 3467 for multicore now the first time i ran this i actually got pretty terrible scores and then they improved when i ran it again so you can see here i had pretty bad scores initially but based on what we've had before with say beta 1 the score seems to be much higher as far

As the multi-core and even single core is a little bit higher as well so i would expect this one to perform pretty well especially after you give it a day or so it seems to be performing well and it's not even warm on my 11 pro max now let's take a look at all of these devices so here are all the devices laid out with geekbench scores on them so on the left we have the ipad air 2 then the iphone 7 then the iphone 10r and then the iphone 11 pro max and i did run it twice on the 11 pro max

To hopefully get a little bit better scores and after it was done processing in the background so if these are very low for you then try again maybe in an hour or so and see if they improve but this should give you a general idea of what to expect so that's it for ios 14.2 beta 2. now if you're wondering if you should update to this version and you're already on ios 14.2 beta 1 then i would say absolutely this should fix a bunch of issues

However if you're already on ios 14 or 14.0.1 i wouldn't update to this one since it's an early beta now if you're having major issues then maybe try it out but i really would hold off until apple releases more versions or they come out with ios 14.1 now we haven't seen that version yet which is kind of weird but i think we're going to see it with the release of iphone 12 and so i would expect invites for the iphone 12 event to go out probably on the 6th of october with the

Event being the following tuesday and then the pre-or the pre-orders or the pre-sale of iphone 12s going for sale on that following friday then a final release of them on the friday after that so that's usually how apple does it so look for iphone 12 with ios 14.1 hopefully in a couple weeks of course i'll keep you updated as far as i know i'll let you know as well now if i find anything else in ios 14.2 beta 2 i'll do a follow up with more new features later this week and then i'll do the

Normal follow up with all the battery information and more based off the youtube community poll on sunday like i normally do now if you'd like to get your hands on this wallpaper of course i'll link it in the description like i normally do and if you haven't subscribed already please subscribe and if you enjoyed the video please give it a like as always thanks for watching i'll see you next time you
