Apple has made updates to its beta which includes new safety features in the messaging app, changes in the TV show, and more!
The first feature is Legacy Contact, which allows your trusted person to access your Apple profile after your death. This allows you to specify certain people as old contacts. This person can access galleries, messages, notes, files, and contacts.
With this new feature, the Messages app warns children when receiving or sending nude photos. In that case, the nude image will be blurred, thus preventing them from seeing the picture. The child is then warned and provided with resources that can help, but they have the option to go ahead and view the picture. There are also similar protections for sending nude images.
TV app update
With today’s update, the TV show now has a dedicated sidebar that replaces the tab bar at the bottom of the screen. The sidebar makes it easy to switch between different sections of the app, including the original version, your library, and Watch Now.
Hide my email
“Hide My Email” was introduced earlier this year as part of iOS 15 and macOS Monterey, allowing users to create random email addresses to sign in to apps and websites to protect privacy and add it to the Mail app. This feature was now taken to the next level. This allows users to tap the “From” field and select the “Hide My Email” option directly in the email application. Apple explains that this creates a random address that is sent to your inbox.
The last but not least, iOS 15.2 adds a new option to the Find My app to find “items that can track me.” This tracking function scans the “unknowns” for finding My-enabled near known locations. “Find My” also has a new “Help Return Lost Items” button that replaces the previous “Identify Found Item”
