Apple seeded the seventh beta of iOS 11.2.5 to developers today. Registered developers can download the beta from Apple Developer Center or via OTA update with the proper configuration profile installed.
iOS 11.2.5 introduces a new feature that enables Siri to play daily podcasts of news when asked. This new feature is set to be utilized with Apple’s upcoming HomePod speaker and can be activated by saying Hey Siri or asking it to play the news when connected via headphones or CarPlay; essentially any situation where you are not looking at your device’s display. If activated via home button or a side button, standard Apple news will be shown.
This update doesn’t bring any major changes and focuses on the bug fixes and improvements. This beta appears to be the Golden Master version of iOS 11.2.5 that will be released to the public at a later date.
