TvOS 11.2.5 Beta 5 is Now Rolling Out

Meltdown and Spectre flaws affect all Mac and iOS devices

A new software update for the iPhone X, other iPhones and iPads is coming soon. The new version comes just two days after beta 4, although today's release appears limited to iOS only. It turns out that this was pretty accurate, thanks to tech developer Melvin Mughal who made a decision to benchmark the iPhone before and after applying the iOS 11.2.2 patch that is supposed to patch the Spectre vulnerability. So far, the only notable new feature is that Siri will play news-oriented podcasts when asking about current events.

We'll let you know if we find any new features in the new beta.

The following Apple iOS devices will no longer work with Pokémon GO after February 28, 2018. In order for an iOS build to be installed on your iPhone, it needs to be "signed" by Apple's servers. This could be a hint that Apple is mainly developing the new audio news feature for the upcoming HomePod speaker.

Contrary to Apple's official statement on the bugs that it found "no measurable reduction in the performance of macOS and iOS" following its December fixes, benchmarks show that the latest iOS 11.2.2 update that also fixes the Spectre flaw, has a significant impact on performance on some devices, with scores falling by as much as 56% in some tests, CultOfMac is reporting.

More news: Pop-up porn malware on Google game apps

Last month, IBT learned that the second beta of the upcoming update likely addressed the bug that made it impossible for testers to access the camera or camera roll and iMessage apps from non-iMessage conversations. This suggests that Apple is getting ready for the final release of iOS 11.2.5 and we suspect it may land early next week.

It's unclear how iOS 11.2.2 affects performance on other iOS devices.

To install the new build on your registered Apple TV, head over to Settings System Software Updates Update Software and hit the download button.
