U ovom članku se sažeto prikazuje sve što je novo u iOS 17.5 Beta 1 do sada. Apple je ove nedelje omogućio razvojnim inženjerima pristup prvim betama iOS 17.5 i iPadOS 17.5 radi testiranja. Iako nove verzije softvera zasad uključuju samo nekoliko novih mogućnosti za korisnike, sakriveni kod otkriva neke dodatne mogućnosti. Među novim funkcijama koje su do sada identifikovane su web distribucija za iOS aplikacije u EU, promena boje pozadine Apple Podcasts widgeta u skladu sa omotom podcasta koji se sluša, mogućnost primoravanja MDM rešenja da koriste iOS beta verziju prilikom automatizovanog registrovanja uređaja i mnoge druge.

Sve novo u iOS 17.5 Beta 1 do sada

Web Distribution

Starting with iOS 17.5, iPhone users in the EU will have the ability to download iOS apps directly from the websites of select developers. This feature, called ‘Web Distribution’, was previously announced by Apple and is now being implemented with the upcoming software update. The first beta of iOS 17.5 includes newly-added code to support this feature.

However, it’s important to note that ‘Web Distribution’ will be limited to larger developers based in the EU. To qualify for this distribution method, developers must be a member of the Apple Developer Program for two continuous years or more, and have an app that had more than one million annual installs on iOS in the EU in the prior calendar year.

‘Web Distribution’ builds upon the alternative app marketplaces that Apple already allows on the iPhone in the EU starting with iOS 17.4. These changes have been made by Apple to comply with the EU’s Digital Markets Act.

Color-Changing Apple Podcasts Widget

One of the new features in the iOS 17.5 beta is the color-changing Apple Podcasts widget. While listening to a podcast, the background color of the widget will change to match the podcast’s cover art. This feature was initially introduced in the iOS 17.4 beta but was removed before the update was released. Now, it has made a comeback in the iOS 17.5 beta.

Mobile Device Management

In the iOS 17.5 beta, Mobile Device Management (MDM) solutions have the capability to enforce an iOS beta version during Automated Device Enrollment. This means that organizations using MDM can ensure that their devices are running the specific beta version of iOS 17.5 during the enrollment process.

Code Changes

Battery Health Menu for Future iPads

The first iPadOS 17.5 beta includes references to a Battery Health menu, although the feature is not yet visible. This Battery Health menu is expected to show an iPad battery’s maximum remaining capacity and cycle count, similar to the battery information provided on iPhones. However, it seems that this feature may be limited to new iPad models that are rumored to launch in May, such as the new iPad Pro and iPad Air models. Currently, only the latest iPhone 15 series displays cycle count information.

New Apple Pencil

The iOS 17.5 beta also references a potential new fourth-generation Apple Pencil. This suggests that an updated version of the Apple Pencil may be released alongside the rumored iPad Pro and iPad Air models in May. The hidden code in the beta includes references to the fourth-generation Apple Pencil, which would likely succeed the current third-generation model.

Third-Party Item Tracker Alerts

Apple and Google jointly announced a proposed industry specification to address the misuse of Bluetooth item trackers for unwanted tracking. As part of this initiative, Apple promised to expand AirTag-like ‘Found Moving With You’ alerts to third-party item trackers in a future software update. The iOS 17.5 beta includes references to alerts for third-party item trackers, indicating that this feature may be included in the update.

Block All Participants in Group FaceTime Calls

The code in the iOS 17.5 beta suggests a new option called ‘Block All Participants’ for group FaceTime calls. This option could be useful in fighting spam and unwanted participants in group calls. However, it is yet to be confirmed if this feature is functional in the first beta.
