Apple seeds fifth beta of iOS 11.2 to developers

“Apple today seeded the fifth beta of an upcoming iOS 11.2 update to developers, more than a week after releasing the fourth iOS 11.2 beta, a month after releasing the first major iOS 11 update, iOS 11.1, and a week and a half after releasing the iOS 11.1.2 update,” Juli Clover reports for MacRumors.

“iOS 11.2 introduces Apple Pay Cash, Apple’s new peer-to-peer payments service,” Clover reports. “Apple Pay Cash works through the Messages app and is designed to allow for quick person-to-person money transfers. It’s available as a dedicated iMessage app in Messages, with cash transferred through the app.”

“On the iPhone X, iOS 11.2 adds a small bar underneath the icons located at the upper right side of the device on the Lock screen, which is designed to make the location of the Control Center gesture more clear.,” Clover reports. “In Control Center on all devices, there are two new informational pop-ups that are displayed when using the Wi-Fi or Bluetooth toggles. These pop-ups explain that Bluetooth and Wi-Fi are disabled temporarily rather than permanently when accessed from Control Center. ”

MacDailyNews Take: For those of us who already know the iPhone X gestures by heart, we’d like for Apple to allow us to turn the white bars off.

Enough with the unremovable training wheels, Apple!
