Last week, Apple released the second beta of iOS 11.2 a bit early exclusively to iPhone X owners. Now, the same build is rolling out to all other users who are registered to receive beta builds of the OS. To install the new build on your registered device, head over to Settings > General > Software Update. Tap “Download and install” next to the iOS 11.2 beta listing and you’ll be good to go. I recommend jumping on a Wi-Fi network first alongside plugging in your device beforehand as a) you don’t want data overcharges on your bill and b) you don’t want your phone or tablet to die during the installation process.

In the beta, iOS 11.2 brings the same iPhone 8 and 8 Plus wallpapers used in their promotions to older devices like the 7 and 6s. In the second beta of the update, Apple is introducing the ability for app developers to use an introductory pricing tool which temporarily discounts an app’s auto-renew subscription. More on that below.

New in iOS 11.2

Introductory Pricing for Auto-Renewable Subscriptions

Soon, you’ll be able to offer new customers a discounted introductory price for your auto- renewable subscriptions on the App Store. iOS 11.2 introduces new classes (SKProductDiscount and SKProductSubscriptionPeriod) and new properties on SKProduct (subscriptionPeriod and introductoryPrice) to provide details on the introductory pricing and billing period you’ve selected for your auto-renewable subscriptions. You can use these new API additions to localize and display information about introductory pricing to your users. You’ll be able to configure introductory pricing on your in-app purchase page in iTunes Connect soon.

Other than that, there isn’t much else new in iOS 11.2. We’ll, of course, let you know of any further changes.
