Apple today seeded the third betas of its upcoming iOS 13.6 and iPadOS 13.6 updates to developers and public beta testers. The new seeds come three weeks after the second seeds.
Beta builds are available to developers over the air on the devices with the proper configuration installed. Developers can also download the new betas from the Apple Developer Center.
Public beta builds of the new operating systems can be downloaded via the Apple Beta Software Program website by users signed up to take part in the testing program. If you’re interested in trying out the betas of the upcoming operating systems you can sign up for the program by clicking the same link.
While the feature is not yet live, the betas show indicators of a new Apple News+ Audio feature, which will see Apple offering some news stories as audio.
Also in the new beta, the Health app now includes a new “Symptoms” section that wasn’t available in previous versions of iOS. The section reportedly allows users to add symptoms of illnesses including body and muscle aches, changes in appetite, coughing, dizziness, fainting, headache, and more.
iOS 13.6, also adds new toggles for customizing Automatic Updates, allowing users to designate whether their iPhone or iPad can automatically download iOS updates when connected to WiFi, and when those updates are installed.
iOS 13.6 also brings support for Car Key. Car Key is designed to allow an iPhone or an Apple Watch to be used in place of a physical key to unlock an NFC-enabled vehicle. Car Key needs to be implemented by car manufacturers to function.
The above new features may or may not make it into the final version of the operating systems, only time and testing will tell.
As usual, MacTrast and Apple both warn users to not install any betas on your daily driver iPhone or iPad, instead only install betas on a device set aside for testing purposes.
