Apple has seeded the fifth and likely final beta of iOS 12.2. The update, build 16E5223a for those keeping score at home, comes a week after the fourth beta was released. If you have a device registered in the Apple Beta Program, the new build should be available under Settings>General>Software Update on your iPhone or iPad.
iOS 12.2 is bringing a handful of new features or updates to an iPhone or iPad near you. Apple News makes its way to Canada with this release, providing articles in both English and French. Four new Animoji are also in this update as well as tweaks to some of the Settings pages and the Apple TV remote app. In principle however, this update is all about bug fixes, security updates, and performance improvements.
iOS 12.2 is expected to be the last major “dot” release for iOS 12. With WWDC coming up in June, it is expected that Apple will begin shifting focus to iOS 13. That release is expected to be announced at the developer event in San Jose, California.
