Following the release of iOS 15.1 earlier this week, Apple today released the first beta version of iOS 15.2 for developers – which comes with some privacy changes. However, the update also includes a redesigned summary of notifications on the iPhone and iPad lock screens.
Summary notifications is one of the new features introduced with the first release of iOS 15 and allows users to schedule all notifications they don’t consider so important to appear on the lock screen in just one place at a time. Although the notification summary is a fairly new feature, Apple has already redesigned it with iOS 15.2 beta.
Here’s how Apple describes the summary notification feature:
Receive a useful collection of your notifications delivered daily, morning and evening, or scheduled at any time you choose. The summary is intelligently sorted by priority, with the most relevant notifications at the top, so you can catch up quickly.
As you can see in the screenshots, the new notification summary contains floating tabs with the color of the app icon. When you expand it, all notifications are displayed inside the main tab instead of being displayed separately as in iOS 15.0 and iOS 15.1.
For comparison, here’s what the notification summary looks like in previous versions of iOS 15:
iOS 15 has brought a huge focus on improving notifications. In addition to a summary of the announcement, the latest version of Apple’s mobile operating system also features a new Focus mode, redesigned banners, time-sensitive alerts and more.
As for iOS 15.2, the update also adds a new app privacy report to the iOS Settings app. There, users can see data accessed by apps, including third-party apps and Apple apps. iOS 15.2 is currently only available to developers and it is not clear when the update will be released to the public.
