iOS 16 beta 3 and iPadOS 16 beta 3 are here, and they include some additional updates and changes to new features first announced at WWDC last month. Head below as we round up everything new in iOS 16 beta 3 and iPadOS 16 beta 3…
iOS 16 and iPadOS 16 are scheduled to be released to the public sometime this fall. We expect Apple to continue making changes and tweaks to updates in the lead up to this fall release. We are still waiting for the first public beta of iOS 16 to be released.
It’s also worth noting that, especially during early beta releases, changes and improvements aren’t necessarily linear. This means that something that works in iOS 16 beta 2 may be broken in iOS 16 beta 3. As always, proceed with caution.
With all that being said, what’s new in iOS 16 beta 3? Head below to find out.
