Apple: iOS 13 Public Beta Released For iPhone

After the first public beta of iOS 13 and iPadOS was released back in June, Apple is moving forward with the third seed.

While in the public beta program this beta is available to those, the software is still in its pre-release form. That means there may be bugs and other issues that may regularly affect performance. It should not, therefore, be installed on a daily driver. However, if you want to try it out, you can sign up right here for those who are not already part of the program.

For those who are already part of the beta program and have installed the first public beta, after the proper configuration profile has been installed, they will receive an over – the-air update to the latest public beta.

The new system-wide Dark Mode (which is also available in iPadOS) as well as a brand new, redesigned Photos app offer a more robust way to view your photos and videos. There are new photo editing options, a new volume HUD, the redesigned Find My app, and the new Sign In with Apple that will bring a much more secure way to use Apple’s service to log in to apps and websites.

Maps has a new view of the street, which Apple calls “Look Around,” similar to the effort of Google itself.

Meanwhile, iPadOS is primarily a branched iOS 13 version and looks almost identical as such. However, some iPad-specific elements are added to the mix, including a new home screen that allows to be present at all times to support the Today view of widgets.

There’s a lot more, and for those who don’t plan to use beta software, they’ll be able to try out iPadOS and iOS 13 later this year when the mobile operating systems are launched in the fall sometime.
