One week after the release of the first beta, Apple today is rolling out iOS 15.1 beta 2 to developers, among other updates. iOS 15.1 includes the return of SharePlay as well as updates to the Apple Wallet and Apple Health app for storing COVID-19 vaccination cards.
Update: iOS 15.1 beta 2 is now available to public beta testers as well.
Today’s new release of the iOS 15.1 beta 2 is available to developers via an over-the-air update in the Settings app. As usual, if the update does not immediately appear for download, keep checking, as it sometimes takes a few minutes to roll out to all registered developers. The build number of iOS 15.1 beta 1 is 19B5052f.
Here’s a recap of what’s new in iOS 15.1:
- iOS 15.1 beta 1 re-enables SharePlay feature following delay
- Apple adds support for storing COVID-19 vaccination cards in Wallet with iOS 15.1
- HomePod 15.1 beta 1 brings back Lossless and Dolby Atmos support
