Apple Seeds Fourth Beta of iOS 11.2 to Developers

Apple today seeded the fourth beta of an upcoming iOS 11.2 update to developers, four days after releasing the third iOS 11.2 beta, more than two weeks after releasing the first major iOS 11 update, iOS 11.1, and one day after the iOS 11.1.2 update.

Registered developers can download the new iOS 11.2 beta from Apple's Developer Center or over-the-air once the proper configuration profile has been installed from the Developer Center.

iOS 11.2 introduces Apple Pay Cash, Apple's new peer-to-peer payments service. Apple Pay Cash works through the Messages app and is designed to allow for quick person-to-person money transfers. It's available as a dedicated iMessage app in Messages, with cash transferred through the app.

Cash can be sent from a linked debit or credit card, while received cash is stored in an Apple Pay Cash card in Wallet that can be used for purchases or sent to a bank account.

On the iPhone X, iOS 11.2 adds a small bar underneath the icons located at the upper right side of the device on the Lock screen, which is designed to make the location of the Control Center gesture more clear. On the iPhone X, Control Center is accessed by swiping down from the top of the device.

In Control Center on all devices, there are two new informational pop-ups that are displayed when using the Wi-Fi or Bluetooth toggles. These pop-ups explain that Bluetooth and Wi-Fi are disabled temporarily rather than permanently when accessed from Control Center.

In iOS 11.2, there's support for faster 7.5W wireless charging for the iPhone X, iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 Plus. The faster speeds will be available when using third-party wireless chargers that support 7.5W charging or more.

The update also addresses an animation bug in the Calculator app that caused some numbers and symbols to be ignored when entered in rapid succession. The update removes the animations from the calculator app so calculations can be done quickly with no need to pause between entering numbers to obtain the correct result.

In addition to these bug fixes, iOS 11.2 introduces a new Now Playing option for controlling content on the Apple TV in Control Center, redesigned camera emoji, a new loading animation for Live Photos effects, and new Live wallpapers for the iPhone X, plus it adds a feature that lets developers offer new customers discounted introductory pricing for auto-renewable subscriptions on the App Store.

The YouTube App Causes Serious Battery Drainage On The iPhone And iPad

A number of iPhone and iPad users have reported that the YouTube app seems to be secretly causing a serious drainage on the device’s battery.

A number of Apple iPhone and iPad users have reported on forums that the YouTube app on their iPhone and iPad has caused battery drainage at a stunning speed. In some cases, users have reported the battery drainage has depleted 20 percent of a battery’s charge in less than 30 minutes. Some users have also reported even when they are not watching YouTube videos or have the app open at all, drainage is occurring.

It seems the complains started around the time both iOS 11, and 11.1.1 were launched, users have noticed after the updates their iPhones and iPads were running out of battery life faster. Some users who updated to either iOS 11 or higher, and are having this issue have used Reddit, Twitter, and other forums to voice their issues regarding this problem, the YouTube team addressed the issue by responding to the users stating the company is aware of the problem, and it’s something they are actively working on.

To alleviate this issue, YouTube has recently updated its iOS app to version 12.44 which seems to have addressed the battery drainage issue on the iPhone and iPad at this time. The updated version also  adds “support for the iPhone X, which includes pinch to zoom fullscreen.” Users should also check to make sure the YouTube app is fully closed or force quit from the multitasking menu. To enable, double press the home button, then YouTube can be swiped out of view, and force to shut.

Apple released iOS 11.1.2 for iPhones and iPads this afternoon. It's a minor, bug-fix update that benefits iPhone X users who encountered issues after acquiring the new phone just under two weeks ago.

iOS 11.1.2's patch notes are short and sweet. The update fixes just two problems. The first is "an issue where the iPhone X screen becomes temporarily unresponsive to touch after a rapid temperature drop." Last week, some iPhone X owners began reporting on Reddit and elsewhere that their touchscreens became temporarily unresponsive when going outside into the cold.

Apple shared the following statement with The Loop:
