Apple released the first beta of iOS 17.2 a day after releasing iOS 17.1 to the public. As usual, developers get the beta update first, then public beta testers. Apple typically begins beta testing the following build shortly after releasing a public build.
The wait for the second iOS 17 update began today. Adding new iPhone features later excites us. The first beta lets interested users sample new features before they’re released to the public.
Apple has issued betas for other devices. New updates include iPadOS 17.2 Beta 1, watchOS 10.2 Beta 1, tvOS 17.2 Beta 1, macOS Sonoma 14.2 Beta 1, Ventura 13.6.2 RC, and Monterey 12.7.2 RC. Both iOS and iPadOS 17.2 Beta 1 have the same build number: 21C5029g. The first beta is a long way from the release candidate and public build.
iOS 17.2 Beta 1 was released recently; thus, there is still investigation. you can see the changelog below.
