Two of the main new features found within Apple's original beta release of iOS 11.4 were AirPlay 2 and Messages in iCloud, both of which were announced nearly a year ago at WWDC 2017 but so far have failed to be included within any iOS 11 public release. Messages in Cloud is also a helpful tool to create more storage space, as the new messages will be the only ones remaining in the device's internal memory, while the older messages will be transferred to iCloud.

Apple has released iOS 11.4 beta 2 to developers for testing. For example, messages deleted on iPhone automatically disappear on an iPad.

AppleInsider is now testing out the new betas to find out what changes have been included, if any.
