    Apple today seeded the third beta of an upcoming iOS 11.2 update to developers, one week after releasing the second iOS 11.2 beta and two weeks after releasing the iOS 11.1 update.

    Registered developers can download the new iOS 11.2 beta from Apple's Developer Center or over-the-air once the proper configuration profile has been installed from the Developer Center.

    iOS 11.2 introduces Apple Pay Cash, Apple's new peer-to-peer payments service. Apple Pay Cash works through the Messages app and is designed to allow for quick person-to-person money transfers. It's available as a dedicated iMessage app in Messages, with cash transferred through the app.

    Cash can be sent from a linked debit or credit card, while received cash is stored in an Apple Pay Cash card in Wallet that can be used for purchases or sent to a bank account.

    The iOS 11.2 update also addresses an animation bug in the Calculator app that caused some numbers and symbols to be ignored when entered in rapid succession. The update removes the animations from the calculator app so calculations can be done quickly with no need to pause between entering numbers to obtain the correct result.

    In addition to these bug fixes, iOS 11.2 introduces a new Now Playing option for controlling content on the Apple TV in Control Center, redesigned camera emoji, a new loading animation for Live Photos effects, and new Live wallpapers for the iPhone X, plus it adds a feature that lets developers offer new customers discounted introductory pricing for auto-renewable subscriptions on the App Store.

    Update: Today's iOS 11.2 beta has also been provided to public beta testers.

    Sounds like the final release of 11.2 is probably just about a month away at most.

    This article has no reference to the 11.1.1 update that also fixed the Autocorrect bug. Guessing it was a copy/paste? :)

    Probably an assumption that that fix is in the latest 11.2 beta as well.

    This was fixed for good once 11.1.1 was released :)

    "will be fixed" is incorrect here, the issue was already addressed as of 11.1.1

    More significant is the calculator bug it will fix, which as of now remains present in 11.1.x
    As of now, the calculator is borderline unusable.

    its because if you were on the beta before 11.1 then you didnt get the 11.1.1 where this is corrected...

    My wife's iPhone 6s autocapitalizes random words in mid sentence. We hoped 11.1.1 would fix it, but no such luck. I've read reports that others are also experiencing the frustrating bug.

    Imagine living in a country without Apple Pay, and outside of the US where there will be no Apple Pay Cash either.... ;). Feel better now?

    I am thinking since they will want folks to be able to use Apple Cash for the shopping season that it may be out before Thanksgiving. Thats just my guess I have NO advanced information.

    I'm most interested in messages in iCloud. I wonder if it'll make 11.3...

    For that to happen they would have to release the final in the next few days as most people are off at Apple during most of the Thanksgiving week (next week). Not sure how likely that would be.

    Download right now on iPhone X... I hope there are some improvements, because the more i use the X the more i notice the UI and all the swiping gestures pretty much sucks

    redownload the profile directly from the developer area using safari on your phone... works every time

    SMH...What sucks exactly? I am trying to figure out if I have issues that I am not realizing because all of the gestures are butter for me on 11.2 Beta 2. :confused:
