Tech giant Apple has released its new developer beta, iOS 16.4, which includes expanded emoji support, keyboard updates for some languages, and more. The new beta is now available to anyone who has enrolled their iPhone device in the Developer Beta Program. After the developer beta, Apple will release iOS 16.4 to the public beta channel before a wider release sometime later this year.
“Beginning with iOS 16.4 beta and iPadOS 16.4 beta, Apple Developer Program members will see a new option to enable developer betas directly from Software Update in Settings,” the tech giant said in the release notes.
The beta version includes an update to Matter that supports “both manual and automatic software updates” for Matter accessories.
It also brings updates to the keyboard, including “support for new Unicode 15.0 emoji” and “autocorrect for Korean keyboards enabled by default for test and feedback.” In addition, Gujarati, Punjabi and Urdu keyboards add support for transliteration layouts.
With the new developer beta, the Apple Pencil hover now offers “tilt and azimuth” support.
“The new StoreKit 2 APIs are available for promoted in-app purchases. Apps can receive Promoted Product purchase data from the App Store with PurchaseIntent.Intents and manage visibility with PromotedOrders and Products.PromotionInfo,” the company said. “Autofill, including autofill for passkeys and passwords, now works with input elements contained in shadow DOM in web content,” it added.
For users looking for the latest stable release, Apple recently released the iOS 16.3.1 update for all eligible iPhone models. The new update brings optimizations to the crash detection feature, which was sending false alarms when iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 users were skiing or riding a rollercoaster, despite a modified firmware. Optimization should work as per convenience. Apple’s new iOS 16.3.1 update for iPhone 8 and above also brings fixes for several other bugs, making your iPhone experience better than ever.
