Update: Public beta now, as well!
It’s only been a few days since the last beta, and now Apple has released iOS 11.4 beta 6 for testing. iOS 11.4 includes unreleased features like AirPlay 2 and Messages on iCloud. There’s also a new wallpaper for iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. We’ll dig in to the new version and detail changes below.
New in iOS 11.4
- Messages in iCloud has returned for testing after being included in iOS 11.3 beta and not the release
- AirPlay 2 returns when used with tvOS 11.4
- HomePod stereo support returns in beta, but requires unreleased HomePod beta firmware to work
- HomePod stereo pairing (which didn’t work without HomePod beta) removed from beta 2
- Includes (PRODUCT)RED iPhone wallpaper on iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus (sorry iPhone X users)
