Apple releases iOS 16 beta 6 and iPadOS 16 beta 6 to the developer channel. As we recently shared that the iPhone 14 event is expected within three weeks. And this means that the stable version of iOS 16 and iPadOS 16 will also be released within three weeks. With the sixth beta of iOS 16 and iPadOS 16, the stable release is even closer. Let’s find out what’s new in iOS 16 beta 6 and iPadOS 16 beta 6.
iOS 16 is one of the big updates, especially in terms of the new UI. Well, there are major UI changes only on the lock screen. But still, it gives us something new to try. And if you’ve been waiting for the new lock screen but don’t want to use the beta, you don’t need to wait any longer than expected.
Along with iOS 16 Dev Beta 6 and iPadOS 16 Dev Beta 6, Apple also released tvOS 16 Dev Beta 6 and watchOS 9 Dev Beta 6. Both iOS 16 beta 6 and iPadOS 16 beta 6 come with the same build number 20A5349b. From the last character ‘b’, we can expect that this will be the second last beta which means there could be a release candidate ahead of the next update. Well, that’s just my guess.
Speaking of changes, we can’t expect a lot of changes in this and the upcoming beta as we near the public release, and hence Apple will focus more on bug fixes. There are some small changes here and there. You can check the changes below.
- In Contacts a text box appears to merge whenever there is a duplicate contact
- The notification center is redesigned for landscape mode
- Bug fixes
