No new features are listed for either beta; however, both are expected to bring bug fixes and security improvements in the OS and SDK.

As yet there are no details on when the new iOS 11.2.5 software update will be released.

If you have iOS 11.2.5 beta installed and only iOS 11.2.5 beta, asking Siri about today's news will have a different result depending on the context. Siri will apparently offer news from the Washington Post by default, you can change this to CNN, Fox or NPR. In order to trigger the news podcast stream, you'll have to activate Siri by voice or have earphones connected or be in CarPlay mode.

Now the new beta releases are only available for registered developers, however a public release will likely launch soon. Apple normally releases five betas before the final release. You can always download them from Apple Developer if you need to though. With the iOS 11.2.5 beta 3, developers are now given a chance to test their own apps and software using the latest version of iOS.
