Apple continues iOS 16.1 beta testing, rolling out the third beta to developers. And with this beta we are one step closer to the iOS 16.1 public release. It is an important update since many users have complained about the iOS 16 update. And iOS 16.1 looks much better and stable than iOS 16.
Last week Apple rolled out an incremental update iOS 16.0.2, for iOS 16 users. And it brought some bug fixes to improve the user experience. But still, some issues are not addressed in the last update. And all hope is now from iOS 16.1. Luckily the beta update also improves battery performance.
Along with the iOS 16.1 Beta 3 update, Apple also rolls out iPadOS 16.1 Beta 4, macOS Ventura 13.0 Beta 9, tvOS 16.1 Beta 3, and watchOS 9.1 Beta 3. The iOS 16.1 Developer Beta 3 comes with build number 20B5056e. And it weighs around 500MB+ depending on different scenarios.
Talking about changes, we are expecting a decent amount of changes in performance improvements, and user experience improvements. The iOS 16.1 Beta 3 brings the ability to change added wallpapers from Settings > Wallpapers. Earlier it was possible only through the lock screen.
If there are any other changes, I am going to add them here to the list. In case you find it first, then feel free to let us know in the comment section.
- New Modem update
- Automatic In-App content download option in App Store Settings
- Matter Accessories option removed from General Settings
- And many bug fixes and improvements
As usual, the iOS 16.1 Beta 3 update is first available to developers. And soon by the end of today or tomorrow, the beta update will be available to public beta testers. If you have installed the iOS 16.1 Beta then you will receive the update on your iPhone. To check for the update go to Settings > General > Software Update. And tap the Download and Install button to get the update.
In case you are on the iOS 16 public build, then you need to install the beta profile on your iPhone to get the beta update. Make sure to take a full backup of your iPhone and charge it to at least 50% before updating.
