iOS 16 beta 2 includes support for back up over LTE

Apple recently seeded the iOS 16 beta 2 to developers and beta testers. The latest beta update includes support for backing up data over an LTE connection.

Previously, iOS 15 users could opt-in to back up their devices over a 5G network in case a WiFi connection was unavailable. However, the backup option did not include an LTE connection.

On iOS 16, users will be able to back up their devices over LTE, 5G, and WiFi connections

According to Apple’s release notes of iOS 16 beta 2, iPhone and iPad users can backup their devices over an LTE connection, along with 5G and WiFi connections.

Customers using iOS 16 can now back up their device over an LTE cellular connection, as well as a 5G or Wifi connection

However, users must keep in mind that LTE connections are slower than 5G and WiFi connections. Therefore, backing up a device over LTE would consume a lot of data.

It is also discovered that iOS 16 beta 2 added a new menu to manage “HomePod Beta Updates” in the Home app for users with a HomePod beta profile to select which HomePod mini speakers would receive the HomePod beta updates by enabling a toggle.

iOS 16 update will be compatible with iPhone 8 and later which will introduce several new features like customizable Lock Screen, iCloud Shared Photo Library, Focus mode enhancements, improvements to Mail, Fitness, Safari, and much more.
