Apple Releases iOS 15.5 And iPadOS 15.5 Betas To Developers
Apple has today released the first beta versions of iOS 15.5 and iPadOS 15.5 to developers with public beta testers likely to get their hands on it within a matter of days.
The new updates can all be downloaded over the air by those who have the correct developer profile installed on their iPhone and iPad while the installation files can also be manually downloaded via the Apple Developer Center, too.
While we don’t yet know if there are any notable changes or new features, we do know that there is a caveat related to Universal Control.
Apple notes that those who install macOS 12.4 or iPadOS 15.5 will also require the corresponding Mac or iPad beta to be installed if they intend to use Universal Control. That means that Mac users who update to macOS 12.4 also need to install iPadOS 15.5 and vice versa.
It’s expected that Apple will make iOS 15.5 and iPadOS 15.5 available to the public before WWDC rolls around on June 6, a date that will also see the announcement of iOS 16 and iPadOS 16.
We expect those updates to be made available in early beta form for developers, while the final shipping versions will be offered to the public in or around September time — when the iPhone 14 lineup is also expected to be announced.
