While we thought Apple is not going to release beta update this week because we are already at the end of the week, Apple releases iOS 16.2 beta 4 update. There was no beta update last week due to Thanksgiving week. But earlier this week Apple released a new incremental update iOS 16.1.2 for everyone. Here you will know all about the latest iOS 16.2 beta 4.
As per our estimation, Apple is going to release iOS 16.2 for everyone in mid of December. And so the 4th beta might be the last or second last beta update for iOS 16.4 and then we can expect a release candidate. iOS 16.2 is going to be the last major update this year for the iPhone. It brings many useful features. You can check out some of its best features here.
Today Apple also released iPadOS 16.2 Beta 4, macOS Ventura 13.1 Beta 4, tvOS 16.2 Beta 4, watchOS 9.2 Beta 4, and macOS Monterey 12.6.2 RC 3. The fourth iOS 16.2 Beta comes with build number 20C5058d. Yes, the build number ends with d but if there is a next beta update, its build number might end with a.
As there have been already three beta updates, most of the iOS 16.2 features are already out. And so in the current beta, Apple has given more importance to bug fixes and user experience improvements. But still, you will find some changes in the UI.
The iOS 16.2 beta brings a new Modem update at least on the iPhone 14 Pro models. There is also a noticeable change in the notification scrolling animation on the Lock Screen. And the Dynamic Island outline in the Dark background is less visible than before. Apple Watch Mirroring is the new Setting in Accessibility. If you find more changes do let us know in the comment section.
The iOS 16.2 Beta 4 update is currently available to Developers. And the update will be available to all public beta testers today or tomorrow. The update will only appear if you have installed the beta profile and update to one of the iOS 16.2 beta. To manually check the update, go to Settings > General > Software Update > Download and Install.
Before updating your iPhone to iOS 16.2 beta 4, make sure to back up important data and charge it to at least 50% to avoid interruption.
