Apple has released iOS 11.4 beta 2 to registered developers. The update arrives two weeks after the first iOS 11.4 beta was launched.
The latest iOS beta includes two features that Apple announced in 2017 but not released to the public. Along with Message in iCloud, AirPlay 2 support has been added. Both of those features were part of the iOS 11.3 beta testing period but removed before the final release.
With Messages in iCloud, users can see all of the conversations synced between iOS devices and their Mac using iCloud. For example, messages deleted on iPhone automatically disappear on an iPad.
AirPlay 2 allows multi-room audio and the ability to stream music to multiple sources simultaneously. The Apple TV also appeared in the Home app. Stereo support for two HomePods is also included but won’t work until Apple launches new HomePod firmware.
We’ll add to this post as we discover new iOS 11.4 beta 2 features.
