According to Mac Rumors, the company has made changes to Screen Time which includes new options to sort by the device and view additional details on a per-app basis. The tweaks are also made to Battery Usage Apple has made it easier to see which apps are eating up battery. There are several other smaller changes in iOS 12 beta 2.
Battery Usage- The battery usage will be shown in the form of charts about the activity and battery level for the last 24 hours. In iOS 12 beta 2 it has been redesigned, and some of the wording has been updated in this section.
Screen Time- The company has also removed a toggle for clearing Screen Time data, and the interface of the main ScreenTime screen has been tweaked for adding time limits to apps. In the first beta, when you tapped an app it went right into the limits interface, but now tapping on the same will display more info on the app which includes daily average use, developer, category, and more, and will also allow you to set a limit. Apple has also included a new splash screen when opening Screen Time for the first time.

Notifications- With new iOS 12 beta 2, the company has brought a new toggle in the Notifications section of the Settings app which will allow the user to toggle off Siri Suggestions for individual apps. In iOS 12, Siri makes suggestions about limiting the notifications which are received by several apps which you usually ignore or use often.
Password AutoFill- The iOS 12 beta 2 update brings a new interface for autofilling a password saved in iCloud Keychain.
Apart from the above points, Apple has also added several other features like introductory splash screen for Voice Memos. While unlocking content using Face ID, the iPhone X now says "Scanning with Face ID." The new beta update has increased the text size for the "Media Types" and "Albums".
