Apple Releases Second Public Beta Of iOS 12 And tvOS 12, as They Introduces Siri Shortcuts App to Developers

Apple today released the second public beta of iOS 12 and tvOS 12 to public beta testers. To download these betas, you need to sign up online at Apple’s Beta Software Program site, once you registered, install it via the over-the-air update method.

Since iOS 12 public beta 2 comes a few days after developer beta 3 was released, many new feature and changes should apply to the new update. In iOS 12 beta 3, Apple introduces new Maps app for the San Francisco Bay Area with new map data collected by Apple itself. Location sharing setting now in a user's profile settings. New animation when clear all notifications, Voice Memos app has redesigned for iPads, and Watch app now shows third-party apps that work with Siri watch face.

Apple today also introduced a beta version of its Siri Shortcuts app that will be available in iOS 12. Currently, the Shortcuts beta is being handled through TestFlight, meaning it needs to be requested to access it after you have logged in the Developer Center, and then will be notified via email.

For those unaware, Siri Shortcuts is designed to help users create custom commands, once a command is made, a user can ask Siri to perform the command. For example, enables Siri to turn on Thermostat, getting a direction to home, and turn on NPR new radio with just a “heading home” Siri command.
