The public beta of iOS 14.2 is available and it brings a lot of new features. The most visible is the management of audio playback on the locked screen; the window now displays the cover in large size with direct access to AirPlay 2 settings. Another musical feature, Shazam is now accessible directly from the control center, without having to unlock your phone.
A hundred new emojis
The 117 new emojis recently validated by the Unicode consortium are also appearing. To navigate among them, a search feature was introduced with iOS 14, making them easier to use.
To install the iOS 14.2 beta, you must first subscribe to Apple’s public beta program, then go to Settings> Software Update.
