Apple Releases Beta 3 Of iOS 17.1, watchOS 10.1, macOS 14.1 To Developers
Apple has today released a new round of betas for the iPhone, Apple Watch, and Mac and we have all the details.
Today’s release is beta 3 seed for iOS 17.1, watchOS 10.1, and macOS 14.1 with developers now able to install all of them onto devices that are signed into the correct developer Apple ID. Assuming that’s the case the update can be installed via the usual update mechanism in Settings, the Watch app, and System Settings respectively.
iOS 17.1 beta 3
The iOS 17.1 update brings with it improvements to AirDrop including the ability to have files transfer over the internet when out of range. There are also improvements to StandBy and the Apple Music app.
watchOS 10.1 beta 3
This update adds a new feature to the Apple Watch Series 9 and Apple Watch Ultra 2. Dubbed Double Tap, it allows people to interact with apps by tapping their fingers together.
macOS 14.1 beta 3
Mac users can look forward to updates to the Apple Music app and a new feature that will show whether or not a device has AppleCare+ coverage.
It isn’t yet clear when these software updates will roll out to the public, but the smart money right now is on that happening within the next few weeks assuming no new issues are found in subsequent beta releases. There will likely be another one or two betas before the release towards the end of October.
