Apple has released iOS 15.2 Release Candidate to developers. This version of iOS that carries the build number 19C56 may get released to public if no major bugs or performance issues are reported, however if that happens a different build will be released as a final version.
In addition to becoming available to developers Apple has also released iOS 15.2 and iPadOS 15.2 Release Candidates for public beta testers.
If you are a beta tester who is running iOS 15.2 on your test devices, then you can head over to the Settings app in order to install this update on your device. The update is released over-the-air.
You may already know iOS 15.2 brings the App Privacy Report feature to iPhones and iPads, which will allow you to see which apps have accessed your device’s camera, microphone and other privacy features recently. It also activates new privacy controls for parents for the Messages app.
iOS 15.2 brings the new Apple Music Voice Plan, which will allow users to subscribe to Apple Music’s Voice only plan for $4.99. Users on this plan will not be able to use Apple Music through the Music app, as they will only be able to play Apple Music songs through the voice assistant Siri.
In addition to iOS 15.2 Apple has also released Release Candidates for macOS Monterey 12.1 and watchOS 8.3, both of which can be downloaded on their respective devices.
Unlike expectations Apple has not added the missing Universal Control feature that will enable users to use their Mac’s mouse and keyboard and move files between multiple Macs and iPads. The update may be delayed further and might get added in the next major release of macOS Monterey.
