Apple on Monday seeded the first public beta of its upcoming iOS 16.6 and iPadOS 16.6 updates to public beta testers. The public betas come two days after the release of the developer betas.
Public builds of iOS 16.6 and iPadOS 16.6 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.
iOS 16.6 so far appears to be a relatively minor update, with no huge new features.
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.
