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:

In addition to iOS 15.1 beta 2 and iPadOS 15.1 beta 2, Apple today has also released tvOS 15.1 beta 2 for Apple TV as well. There is also watchOS 8.1 beta 2 for Apple Watch. Apple hasn’t released any new updates just yet for macOS Monterey.
