Download: Apple Releases First iOS 13.4 Public Beta
You can now download iOS 13.4 public beta 1 configuration profile file OTA link for compatible iPhone and iPad (iPadOS 13.4). Here are the details.
If you’re part of Apple‘s public beta program, we have good news. The first public beta release of iOS 13.4 is now available for download, assuming you have the correct beta profile installed on your device.
This release brings with it a few notable new features and fixes for problems that have been found in previous releases. The biggest new feature is probably the arrival of iCloud Drive folder sharing, something that was available in early iOS 13 betas but was later pulled. This is the first time it’s made an appearance since.
One fix that will be hugely popular among users of the Mail app is the arrival of two new icons to the toolbar. Apple removed the flag and move folder icons in a previous release, and it’s driven people mad ever since. Now, they’re back, and we couldn’t be happier.
Other changes include new Shazam integrations in the Shortcuts app as well as some new Memoji stickers. There’s also support for hardware keyboard key modifiers, too.
Most interesting of everything is the discovery of a new CarKey API. It’s believed that this new API will be used to allow iPhones and Apple Watches to unlock cars if they have the correct hardware built into them. It’s unlikely this feature will be made available just yet, though. This is the first time references to it have been found in any iOS release, beta or otherwise.
