Screen Time is accessible through the Settings app, and its main page shows how much users spend on their iPhone each day.

The Apple Watch 4 may add up some extra screen to make room for additional features.

Specifically, Rambo noted in a post published by 9to5Mac that new Apple Watch identifiers were discovered in the code of iOS 12 developer beta 2. The tweaks are also made to Battery Usage Apple has made it easier to see which apps are eating up battery.

Apple Watch models are typically found in iOS builds because the wearable is still heavily dependent on iPhones.

The most exciting feature of the For You tab is the sharing suggestion feature. Shortcuts the feature, in fact, reveals a fascinating twofold strategy: on one hand, Apple hopes to accelerate third-party Siri integrations by leveraging existing APIs as well as enabling the creation of custom SiriKit Intents; on the other, the company is advancing a new vision of automation through the lens of Siri and proactive assistance from which everyone - not just power users - can reap the benefits.

Screen Time By Device- Apple has included a new option to view activity on a single device or all devices. Voice Memos and FaceID too have received a new splash screen and a text that says "Scanning with Face ID" respectively. The new beta update has increased the text size for the "Media Types" and "Albums".

Release notes for iOS 12 beta 2 don't mention any huge changes, but we're sure to find a lot of little tweaks once we get it installed on our devices. For instance, the weather app is not functional and universal links might not open the app. Let's see what we are going to experience with the new update.
