Apple kicks off third beta of iOS 15.5 and iPadOS 15.5 for developers

Earlier this month, Apple initially started testing the next iteration of iOS 15 on the iPhone, the later build is set to come with iOS 15.5 version number. Last week, we’ve seen the second beta of the upcoming iOS 15.5. Today, Apple seeds the third beta of iOS 15.5 and iPadOS 15.5 to developers. Apart from that, Apple released the third beta of macOS 12.4, watchOS 8.6, and tvOS 15.5. Read along to know more details on iOS 15.5 and iPadOS 15.5 beta 3.

Apple is seeding the third beta of iOS 15.5 and iPadOS 15.5 with a 19F5062g build number. It is a big upgrade compared to the second beta build, the second beta was measured around 584MB in size, while today’s build weighs approx. 647MB of data for downloading. Apple has already announced the date of WWDC 22. This means Apple will start testing the iOS 16 and so iOS 15.5 could be the last major update of iOS 15. The iOS 15.5 is expected to go public in the last week of May.

Since it is the last upgrade in the iOS 15 generation, it may not include new features but instead bug fixes and improvements. If you’re a developer you can freely upgrade your iPhone or iPad to iOS 15.5 or iPadOS 15.5 beta 3. The upgrade is available for all iPhones and iPads running iOS 15 and iPadOS 15.

Moving to the features and changes, then the iOS 15.5 Beta 3 comes with bug fixes and improvements. We did not find any new features yet on this build. But once we find it, we will share it here. If you have found new changes and features, let us know of them in the comment section.
