Today, Apple released the fourth developer beta of iOS 15.4. As spotted by MacRumors, the latest version of the beta includes the new anti-stalking measures for AirTag that Apple announced earlier this month.
The new setup screen for AirTag will warn users that "using this item to track people without their consent is a crime."
The company is also working on an update that will more clearly state when an unknown accessory is detected, an issue that has affected AirPods and caused confusion for users. The update also offers changes to how users customize their AirTag notifications.
Later this year, Apple is also working to make AirTag alerts louder and bring Precision Finding to AirPods. The new developer beta of iOS 15.4 also added a new voice for Siri.
