Most notably, the beta version brings back the 3D Touch app switcher gesture that was originally removed in iOS 11.

In late September, Apple’s Craig Federighi said the gesture was originally removed because of a “technical constraint.” At the same time, he did say it would return in a future update.

The software also offers hundreds of new emoji that Apple previewed last week.

Some of the new additions include Woman with Headscarf, Bearded Person, Breastfeeding, Zombie, Person in Lotus Position, Sandwich, Coconut, and many others.

The software will likely officially arrive to the general early next month, probably alongside the iPhone X launch.
