Apple on Wednesday seeded to public beta testers the first betas of iOS 13.3 and iPadOS 13.3, the upcoming updates to their mobile operating systems. The new beta comes just a bit over a week after the public release of iOS 13.2.
The iOS 13.3 beta fixes the iOS 13.2 multitasking bug issue that caused apps to refresh more frequently than normal.
