Apple on Wednesday seeded the third beta of its upcoming iOS 16.5 and iPadOS 16.5 updates to public beta testers. The public betas come a day after the release of the developer betas.
Public builds of iOS 16.5 and iPadOS 16.5 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.
Those who have signed up for Apple’s beta testing program can enable the beta by going into the Settings app, tapping General -> Software Update, then tapping on Beta Updates, and tapping on the iOS 16 Public Beta option.
So far, only a few changes have been found in the first developer beta, including a new Sports tab in the Apple News app, and Siri now has the ability to start a screen recording upon command.
As usual, MacTrast and Apple both warn users not to install any betas on their daily driver iPhone or iPad. Instead, only install betas on a device set aside for testing purposes.
