Apple releases third dev and public betas for iOS 17.2 and macOS 14.2 alongside visionOS beta 6

Update: Public beta versions of iOS, macOS, tvOS, and the HomePod update are now available.

The third iOS 17.2, macOS 14.2, watchOS 10.2, and tvOS 17.2 developer betas are now available. Apple has also released the sixth beta version of visionOS for Vision Pro developers. We’ll update you with any changes we discover.

iOS 17.2 is the first version to introduce Apple’s Journal app. Apple’s Journal app was first unveiled at WWDC 2023. The company said it would be released later this year rather than launching with iOS 17.0 and include these features:

  • Uses on-device machine learning to create personalized suggestions for journaling – Suggestions API for other apps
  • Includes photos, workouts, and interactions as prompts
  • Entries can be marked as important to standout
  • Prompts will inspire you to write
  • Journal can be locked and is end-to-end encrypted for privacy

What’s coming in iOS 17.2?

As of the first beta release, we’ve seen new Weather widgets for Details, Daily Forecast, and Sunrise & Sunset on iOS and macOS, as well as a new analog clock on the iPhone and iPad. Books also has a new fast fade page turn animation option.
