The third beta of iOS 16.6 is now available after two weeks after the last beta. Yes, Apple will continue testing iOS 16 beta builds along with the iOS 17 beta. And currently, iOS 16.6 is the latest iOS 16 build in the testing. Let’s find out more about the latest iOS 16.6 Beta 3.
Since starting this month everyone is talking about iOS 17 and its developer beta. But still, it’s not the right time for most users to jump into installing iOS 17 developer beta because of the chances of bugs. And so iOS 16.6 is currently the best beta option.
Along with the iOS 16.6 Beta 3, Apple also released iPadOS 16.6 Beta 3, tvOS 16.6 Beta 3, watchOS 9.6 Beta 3, macOS Ventura 13.5 Beta 3, macOS Monterey 12.6.8 RC3, and macOS Big Sur 11.7.9 RC 3. The third iOS 16.6 Beta comes with build 20G5047d. And it is a small update.
As Apple already started the iOS 17 journey, it is not surprising that the update doesn’t include anything new except for some bug fixes. Since the update was released just now, we are not fully aware of the changes, but if there are any changes we will add them below.
As mentioned earlier, the iOS 16.6 Beta 3 is currently available to Developers, but it will also be available to Public Beta Testers soon. If you are on an iOS 16.6 beta, you will receive the OTA update on your device. To check for the update go to Settings > General > Software Update.
