These new iOS 18 features are not available in developer beta 1

iOS 18

Yesterday was a day of great emotions for many of the users who follow Apple news. In addition to the inauguration of one of the most important events in the Big Apple annually, the WWDC, all the new operating systems for next year were also presented. Among them is iOS 18, which includes a large number of new features aimed at modifying the appearance of iPhones through new customization functions or new AI functions through Apple Intelligence. However, some of the features presented yesterday have not been included in beta 1 for developers and most likely they will not see the light of day in the final version of iOS 18, and will be released in future updates. Below we will tell you what they are.

Apple does not include these features in beta 1 of iOS 18 for developers

At the end of the inaugural keynote of WWDC24, Apple released the first beta for developers of iOS 18 and in this article We told you how to install it on your device. However, as we mentioned Some of the features presented in the keynote are not available in iOS 1 beta 18. In principle, some of these functions will not see the light of day until months after the official launch of iOS 18 in September. However, other new features may arrive in future betas throughout the summer months.

Apple devices

Among those functions that do not appear is Apple Intelligence, Apple's new AI concept that we told you about yesterday in this article. In addition to the fact that not many users will be able to try these features on their devices, Apple does not want to introduce any hints in its beta 1 for developers. In fact, the company itself assures that It will release all of these AI features in beta form in the fall. Therefore, it is possible that until we have the launch of the iPhone 16 in September we will not be able to test all this new technology on our devices.

18 iOS Mail

Another function that we have no trace of in beta 1 of iOS 18 is the redesign of the Mail app. Remember that Apple introduced big changes such as the addition of a category system in the purest Gmail style: transactions, updates, promotions and main. In addition, the search and display of emails is improved and even allows you to prioritize all those emails that are important to the user thanks to Apple Intelligence. Apple has already warned that this redesign will not arrive in the initial version but will be launched "later this year" without specifying more.

iOS 18 Messages

The same thing happens with the app Messages and its support for RCS. Apple confirmed that iOS 18 Messages would add support for RCS but not when and at the moment in beta 1 of iOS 18 for developers there is no trace of this change that will allow increasing the ability to send multimedia content through Messages to other users who do not have an iPhone with iOS.

Finally, although there are other iOS 18 options that do not appear and that are closely related to macOS 15, the option is not available either. Safari Highlights feature, which allows you to quickly identify the relevant content of a web page. However, Safari does show most of the changes that Apple presented in the keynote yesterday.
