iOS 17.4 Development Update: EU-Focused Changes and Global Emoji Addition


Apple is making significant strides in the development of iOS 17.4, with the recent rollout of beta 2 to developers. This pre-release software is primarily tailored to comply with regulatory requirements in the European Union (EU).

Key Changes in EU:
