Like the previous developer beta, the fourth release focuses heavily on Apple TV remote shortcut interface tweaks, including a new icon, and the ability to quick-connect to a valid Wi-Fi network in order to use the remote.

Arguably the biggest new feature in the iOS 12.2 beta round was included in the initial developer beta 1 release. That release included four new Animoji characters, as we noted in our hands-on.
