A few months ago, iOS 12.1 released a handful of useful innovations, and the upcoming iOS 12.2 will go even further when released as a stable build to the public. While some of the new features of iOS 12.2 for iPhone are very welcome, there are some we could do without.
Apple's iOS 12.2 started beta testing on January 4, 2019, and since then all of the items listed below have been found in the beta versions, it's possible that not all will achieve the stable build. However, there is also a chance that all will appear officially. In any case, if you want to try it on your iPhone now, you can either do it as a registered developer or as a public beta tester.
However, before we get to the actual functions, you should emphasize that there is some guidance iOS 1
2.2 Beta for the coming things. First, there is a new AirPods setup screen with "Hey Siri", which indicates that AirPods 2 may be released very soon.

I never found the weather information in Maps as annoying or inappropriate. However, if you do, you now have the option to remove this information. If you are only interested in the AQI conditions, you can make this visible.
4. Device details are clearer
A tiny but very popular feature is a reordered "Info" screen in the "General" settings. Instead of just having the name of your device itself, the software version, model name, model number, and serial number are added. All of these were previously available in the large section of information, with the exception of the model name, which shows "iPhone X S Max" or whatever type is completely new here. There is now a separate section for the memory information.
