Apple enthusiasts, rejoice! The latest iOS 18 beta 3 update brings exciting features to your iPhone, including a highly requested Mac-inspired addition. Let’s dive into the details:

  1. Dynamic Wallpaper:
    • The default wallpaper now offers a color-changing “dynamic” option. Throughout the day, your wallpaper’s hues will shift, adding a touch of variety to your home screen.
    • Previously, users were limited to four static color options: Purple, Blue, Pink, and Yellow.
    • To enable dynamic wallpaper, head to Settings > Wallpaper > Choose a New Wallpaper.
  2. Home Screen Customization:
    • iOS 18 beta 3 introduces a feature that automatically converts Home Screen app icons to dark mode. This clever addition uses machine learning image separation technology.
    • Customize your Home Screen by tapping and holding an app icon, then selecting “Edit Home Screen.”
  3. Flashlight Enhancement:
    • iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max users receive an upgraded flashlight interface. The flashlight now appears in the Dynamic Island, making it more accessible.
    • Simply swipe down from the top-right corner to access the flashlight.
  4. Improved Photo Selection:
    • The “Select” button in the Photos app is now always visible. No more swiping up to find it!
    • Additionally, the pinch-to-zoom gesture behaves like iOS 17 and earlier, making photo navigation smoother.
  5. RCS Messaging Details:
    • In the Settings app, explore the updated “RCS Messaging” option under Settings > Apps > Messages. It provides more information about this feature.
  6. Emoji Keyboard Tweaks:
    • The emoji keyboard now displays larger icons for easier visibility and tapping.
    • Beneath the emoji keyboard, discover stickers and additional emojis.
  7. Subtle Changes:
    • When in a Focus mode, the Messages app no longer displays contact names for silenced notifications—just “Messages.”
    • Apple Maps’ dark mode icon has received a redesign.
