Apple on Thursday seeded the release candidates of iOS 15.3 and iPadOS 15.3 to developers and public beta testers. The RC comes one week after the launch of the second betas and over a month after the launch of iOS 15.2 and iPadOS 15.2.
Apple’s release notes for the release do not list what the betas contain featurewise. This suggests the update is focused on bug fixes and performance improvements.
The RC builds of iOS 15.3 and iPadOS 15.3 are available to developers through the Apple Developer Center or over the air on the devices with the proper configuration installed.
Public RC builds of iOS 15.3, iPadOS 15.3 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.
The release notes for iOS 15.3 say it includes “bug fixes and security updates for your iPhone.” The software is recommended for all users.
As usual, MacTrast and Apple both warn users to not install any betas on their daily driver iPhone or iPad. Instead, only install betas on a device set aside for testing purposes. This is especially true when it’s an early beta of a new operating system.
