Apple iOS 17.3 Beta 2 from installation due to iPhone crashing bugApple iOS 17.3 Beta 2 from installation due to iPhone crashing bug

Due to user complaints about a bug causing iPhones to get stuck in a boot loop, Apple temporarily halted the trial of iOS 17.3 Beta 2. The company is looking into the problem and intends to reintroduce the beta version once they’ve addressed the issue.

Apple released iOS 17.3 beta 2 to developers and the general public via the Apple Beta Software Programmer. However, consumers immediately discovered a significant flaw that caused their iPhones to enter a boot loop after installing the beta version. To address this, Apple removed iOS 17.3 beta 2 and is now investigating the problem.

A lot of iPhone users, from the iPhone 12 series to the newest iPhone 15 series, went to platform X (formerly Twitter) to talk about the problems they were having with iOS 17.3 Beta 2. They said that after updating their devices, they were stuck in a loop that wouldn’t end. Some people were only able to fix it by resetting their phones to default settings and loading a recovered file, most likely from iOS 17.3 beta 1 on a Mac or PC.

Apple has stopped sending out the beta 2 version of iOS 17.3, but this boot loop problem didn’t happen to everyone who got it. Developer Guillermo Rambo shared his thoughts on Mastodon, pointing out that this problem could be caused by a crash in backboardd. He said, “According to the crash log, it happens more frequently to people who use the ‘Back Tap’ feature.” The bug seems to affect more than one accessibility feature, but this crash starts the boot loop.

I don’t know whether this error has created any big problems. Apple plans to fix the issue and reintroduce the beta version soon after finishing their investigation.

By the way, two major upgrades are coming to iPhones with the next iOS 17.3 update: Collaborative Playlist and Stolen Device Protection.

Avoiding Device Fraud: The additional security measure introduced in iOS 17.3 safeguards against unauthorized access, even in the event that a third party obtains your passcode. It requires confirmation via Face ID or Touch ID for sensitive operations such as resetting devices, entering passwords, or utilizing remembered payment methods.

Furthermore, in order to perform critical actions such as disabling Find My or altering the Apple ID password, Stolen Device Protection imposes a one-hour delay following biometric authentication. By implementing an additional level of security, potential criminals are not only deterred from swiping data, but sensitive information is also protected.

You can enable Stolen Device Protection in Settings > Face ID and Passcode by selecting Turn On Protection under Stolen Device Protection once iOS 17.3 Beta 2 is released.

The Collective Playlist: Collaborative Playlist for Apple Music is a new feature in the iOS 17.3 release. Apple announced this feature at WWDC 2023, letting users to build and engage with shared playlists in Apple Music via Collaborative Playlists. Despite the fact that it was first tested in iOS 17.2, Apple did not include it in the final release. They want to bring it back in iOS 17.3.

It is important to note that iOS 17.3 Beta 2 is not the final version of the update, and Apple may incorporate more features before the official release for iPhone customers.
