Apple releases iOS 15.2 beta with App Privacy Report and improved Notification Summary
Shortly after seeing iOS 15.1 and iPadOS 15.1 for compatible devices, Apple is now releasing iOS 15.2 for beta testers and developers. The latest iteration focuses on bringing some promised features that were not available with the first release of iOS 15.
One of the most notable is the so-called App Privacy Report, which allows you to track how often certain apps have accessed your private information such as location, photos, microphone, contacts and camera in the last seven days. The feature also keeps track of apps that contact other domains in the background.
Emergency SOS or Auto Call has been updated and an emergency call can be started by pressing the power key and the volume key simultaneously for 8 seconds instead of the previous 3. You can also do this by pressing the power key quickly several times.
Message overview now looks more organized with map style.
And finally, the system’s source code suggests that Apple has implemented the communication security feature, which tracks a child’s messaging app on iPhone, iPad and Mac and warns parents whose sexually explicit content is being sent or received. The software uses machine learning on the device to analyze and recognize such content so that there is no outside snooping or sharing.
