  • The Adaptive Transparency toggle for the original AirPods Pro and the AirPods Max has been disabled.

  • Fixed: a visual bug that affected the Lock Screen album art when users play music/audio on their iPhones.
  • Fixed: Uncertified accessory notifications might appear when pairing Matter accessories.

The previous beta also fixed a known issue with YouTube Picture-in-Picture where video would go blank once the user switched to Picture-in-Picture mode.
