Apple releases iOS 12.2 beta 4 with a new News icon

Today, Apple released the fourth developer betas of iOS 12.2, macOS 10.14.4 Mojave, watchOS 5.2, and tvOS 12.2. As you'd expect from the fourth preview of a minor update, there's not a lot that's new. The latest iOS 12.2 build comes in at around 390MB if you're upgrading from beta 3, so Apple is probably preparing for the public launch.

One change that you'll notice in iOS 12.2 is a new logo for Apple News. Gone is the old newspaper design, and it's been replaced by the red logo with a white background.

It's a big departure, as back in 2017 at WWDC, the firm talked a good bit about why it didn't use a logo like this.

Other than that, most of the fixes included in the release notes are from previous builds. In beta 3, we saw the introduction of the ability to provide discounts for subscriptions to new, existing, and previously subscribed customers. There's also a fix for iCloud Photos, which fixes an issue for photos shared using Sharing Suggestions.

If you're waiting on the public beta, it should be available later today or tomorrow.
