Apple has seeded the first developer and public beta seeds of iOS 14.3 and iPadOS 14.3.
Beta builds are available to developers through the Apple Developer Center or over the air on the devices with the proper configuration installed.
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.
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.
iOS 14.3 includes the ProRAW feature for the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max that Apple announced at the iPhone 12 unveiling event. ProRAW allows users to shoot in the RAW photo format while still taking advantage of features like noise reduction and multi-frame exposure adjustments.
To enable the ProRAW feature go to the Settings app and tap “Camera” after installing the iOS 14.3 beta on your iPhone 12 Pro or iPhone 12 Pro Max. After the feature is enabled, a RAW toggle will be available in the upper right-hand side of the camera app which can be tapped to turn the feature off or on. Keep in mind that photos taken with ProRAW are 25MB in size.
Safari users can now set their default search engine to Ecosia, the search engine that uses its profits to plant trees. Other available search engines include Google, DuckDuckGo, Yahoo, and Bing.
iOS 14.3 also reportedly exposes the design of the AirPods Studio headphones, as well as code supporting third-party item trackers and Bluetooth devices in the Find My app.
