  • iOS 17.5 beta 2 is now available to iPhone users enrolled in Apple’s developer program.
  • Beta 1 introduced a new puzzle game, support for app distribution on the web in the EU, and more.
  • You can expect the stable iOS 17.5 release to become available in May.

Apple just seeded iOS 17.5 beta 2 to users registered in its developer program, two weeks after beta 1’s release. Through this minor version bump, the Cupertino firm is mostly polishing the operating system, before shifting its attention to the iOS 18 preview in June. Despite that, iOS 17.5 still offers some welcome additions and changes that elevate the overall experience for those with an iPhone 15 or another recent model.

What’s new in iOS 17.5 beta

It’s still too early to tell what has been freshly added to iOS 17.5 beta 2, as Apple just released the build. Nevertheless, we expect the first beta’s introductions to remain accessible on beta 2. These additions include an all-new Quartiles puzzle game for News Plus subscribers, support for app distribution through the web in the EU, and minor design tweaks across Books, Podcasts, and Settings.
