“Today following its event at the Steve Jobs Theater, Apple released the latest major update for iPhones and iPads: iOS 12.2,” Ryan Christoffel reports for MacStories. “This version of iOS launches Apple’s just-debuted subscription service for News, includes support for AirPlay 2 and HomeKit on compatible TVs and streaming hardware, plus it brings four new Animoji, and more.”

“Coinciding with the announcement of Apple’s grand TV plans, iOS 12.2 brings key system support for AirPlay 2 on compatible hardware – including streaming devices like the Apple TV and the newest TV sets from Samsung, LG, Sony, and Vizio,” Christoffel reports. “You can now use Siri on iOS to start and control video playback on AirPlay-compatible TV hardware.”

“Apple continues expanding the roster of Animoji available inside Messages and FaceTime,” Christoffel reports. “iOS 12.2 brings four new characters: a shark, giraffe, owl, and warthog.”
