Just a few days after the official launch of iOS 15.1 (October 25), Apple released the first beta test version of iOS 15.2 to developers this morning. Of course, at the same time, iPadOS 15.2, tvOS 15.2, watchOS 8.3, etc. also started testing simultaneously. The first beta corresponding to iOS 15.2 and iPadOS 15.2 is 19C5026i. Users with a developer account can log in to the official website of the Apple Developer Program, download the description file, and install the update.
The update content is as follows:
1. APP privacy report
Similar to the permission viewing function of Android phones, the APP privacy report of iOS 15.2 can monitor the frequency of access to private information by the APP. This includes monitoring the frequency of access to data networks, location information, address book, etc. This feature also monitors the behavior app logs.
2. Emergency call
This new beta updates the SOS emergency call function. Users can activate this feature by the combination of the power button and the volume button. Also, users can activate this feature by pressing the power button five times quickly. Furthermore, the countdown time for automatic dialing has been changed from 3 seconds to 8 seconds.
3. Notification summary
Add more card-like appearance to the notification summary
4. Information Security
For children’s devices with active parent protection, if the in-camera algorithm recognizes sending or receiving indecent pictures, it will prompt the owner.
Apple iOS 15 / iPhone 13 bugs
It is a good thing that Apple is now releasing new updates to the iOS 15 system because, since the launch of the Apple iPhone 13 series and iOS 15, users have reported a number of bugs. These past few weeks, we have had reports of the Apple Watch unable to unlock the iPhone, the card shows no SIM card, lost images, and so on. There is another large-scale bug on this new iPhone. According to widespread reports from Reddit, iPhone 13 series users are complaining that there were serious problems with the touch sensitivity of the screen. The reports claim that the touch sensitivity suddenly malfunctions and there will be no response when users click the display. The good news about this bug is that there is a quick but temporary fix. You just need to restart the smartphone.
Apple iPhone 13 screen touch failure is obviously a large-scale bug. On Reddit, Twitter, and Apple support posts, there are many reports about iPhone 13 users experiencing touch failure problems on new phones. On Weibo, there are also a large number of users reporting the same issue. Also, a small number of users are reporting that older iPhones have the same problem after updating to iOS 15. This suggests that the touch screen issue is not unique to the iPhone 13 series. Thus, we can rule out a possible hardware issue. Most likely, this problem has links to the iOS 15 system.
