Apple releases the third beta version of iOS 17.3 after withdrawing the second beta version


Additionally, Apple is testing beta versions of these versions with developers:
macOS Sonoma 14.3
tvOS 17.3
watchOS 10.3
Registered developers can sign up for betas by opening the Settings app, going to the Software Update section, tapping the Beta Updates option, and switching between iOS 17 or iPadOS 17 Developer Beta. The Apple ID associated with the developer account is required to download and install the beta.
iOS 17.3 introduces a Stolen Device Protection feature that limits access to your private information if someone gets hold of both your iPhone and your passcode, and when activated, requires Face ID or Touch ID verification to do things like access your passwords. iCloud Keychain, turn off Lost Mode, make purchases via Safari using saved payment credentials, and more.
There are also features that require verification and have a one-hour delay in access, such as changing the ‌Apple ID‌ and ‌iPhone‌ passcode, turning off Find My, and turning off ‌Face ID‌, more details can be found in our article on protecting stolen devices.
The update also adds Apple Music collaborative playlists, a feature that allows Apple Music subscribers to share playlists with others to create shared song lists. Collaborative playlists are easy to use, can be shared using a link, and support emoji interactions.
Last week, Apple withdrew the second beta versions of iOS 17.3 and iPadOS 17.3 after the updates caused the devices to enter a permanent boot loop. Apple did not re-release the second beta, but the problem is supposed to be resolved in the third beta.
Apple is expected to release iOS 17.3 later in January.
