This morning, Apple released the second beta of iOS 12.3. It was distributed to developers, and it came with many improvements. These improvements include a new design for the TV app, palm rejection changes for Apple Pencil and a little bit of tweaking in the Wallet app. Let’s get into the details of this change in the new iOS beta.
To begin with, the TV app in the new iOS beta version has a revamp. There’s a new Apple TV channel named Epix added to the app, alongside the other tv programs. Unfortunately, they’re starting to prevent iOS beta testers from using third-party television apps such as YouTube TV due to copyright reasons.
The second change of the iOS 12.3 beta 2 is the Wallet app, in preparation for the June release of Apple Card. This update eliminates the empty transaction icons and there’s now information about the purchase’s location gathered from machine learning. This applies to third-party credit cards, including Apple Card, to all of the purchases you’ve made.
Finally, we found out that the palm rejection bug in the Apple Pencil has been patched in this new iOS beta version. The bug consists of the iPad screen jumping around when you place your palm with your Apple Pencil on the iPad. This bug is patched and the problem doesn’t happen to users anymore.
iOS 12.3 Beta 2 has many changes we’ve seen, from the Wallet app changes in the transactions, TV app redesigning, and to the patching of the palm rejection bug in iPad. If you found an iOS change we didn’t list here, leave it in the comments below!
