Apple has made available for download iOS 11.2.5 beta 5 IPSW links and OTA update to developers and public beta testers alongside. This release comes a few days after seeding the fourth pre-release build of iOS 11.2.5. Here is everything you need to know about the new Apple Developer Program seed.
What are new iOS 11.2.5 beta 5 changes, official release notes, and changelog details? As the latest seed of iOS 11.2.5 has been released for all compatible iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices.
The immediate release means that developers registered are able to grab the latest beta release as an over-the-air update or through the official IPSW download links, once the proper configuration profile has been installed from the Developer Center. Public testers can also get the beta via Software Update.
However, the fourth beta has given the enthusiastic development community the opportunity to locate any issues or bugs and feed them back to Apple’s engineers. This fifth iS 11.2.5 beta has now been served up for consideration by the testing community which the feedback allowed to work on the bugs and bundle together. It, of course, give those developers an opportunity to test their own apps and software with the latest version of iOS.
With iOS 11.2.5 beta 5, there are few new features, no major changes, or new additions which haven’t been in any of the previous pre-release seeds of firmware are expected. Nevertheless, it introduces users to allow Siri to play daily news podcasts when queried about the current news. Siri will offer up news from The Washington Post by default, but you can also choose to switch to Fox News, CNN or NPR.
When you ask for new features spotted in iOS 11.2.5 beta 5, there’s a new audio news addition, which appears to have been developed for use with Apple’s upcoming HomeKit speaker, when it’s invoked using Hey Siri or asking Siri about the news when using CarPlay or with headphones connected – essentially any situation where you’re not looking at the display of an iOS device. For that, if you activate Siri the side button or Home button of a device, standard Apple news headlines are provided instead of the audio-based news highlights.
Currently, it’s not clear what offer new features, if any, will be included in the iOS 11.2.5 beta. No discovery has been made or found other noticeable outward-facing changes in the first four iOS 11.2.5 betas, so it’s possible this update focuses mainly on bug fixes and security improvements aside from the Siri news update.

Apple is also supposed to be releasing an iCloud Messages feature that was otherwise pulled from the iOS 11 release. But again, there has been no indication of when we can expect iCloud Messages to be introduced.
