Members of Apple’s software testing programme have been given access to the second public beta versions of iOS 16, iPadOS 16, tvOS 16, and macOS Ventura.
The fourth developer beta versions of the new software updates, which were released on Wednesday, and the second public beta versions ought to be nearly identical.
Users who are interested can enrol in Apple’s Beta Software Program and obtain the most recent beta versions through the linked web portal.
Among many other new features in iOS 16, there is a redesigned Lock Screen with widget support and more customization options, the ability to edit or delete iMessages, and an Apple Pay Later instalment plan.
The build number for the public betas of iOS 16 and iPad OS 16 is 20A5328h. The build number for the public beta of macOS Ventura is 22A5311f. The build number for the public beta of tvOS 16 is 20J5344f.
A second public beta of watchOS 9 has not yet been made available because Apple did not release a fourth developer beta of the software on Wednesday.
With the inclusion of Stage Manager in iPadOS 16, Apple has brought its tablet a little bit closer to the Mac by enabling windowed multitasking. New faces, heart rate zones, a medication app, and other extra fitness and health features are all included in Apple’s watchOS 9.
In contrast, tvOS 16 is a more modest upgrade, but it still adds new functionality including expanded support for gaming controllers, new Smart Home capabilities, and cross-device compatibility.
