Download iOS 13 and iPadOS 13 Beta 5

iOS 13

Apple today released the fifth developer beta of iOS 13 and iPadOS 13. The last beta of iOS 13 fixed a number of bugs and stability issues and the fifth beta is expected to follow the same route.

With only around two months left for Apple to publicly release iOS 13 and iPadOS 13 to the public, it makes sense that the company is now focusing on fixing bugs and ironing out other issues with the OSes instead of adding new features. If you were frustrated with the sheer number of bugs in the initial iOS 13 and iPadOS 13 beta build, you might want to give the latest beta a try as it a major step up in terms of stability.

Apple will also release the third public beta of iOS 13 and iPadOS 13 to developers later this week.

iOS 13 Features

iOS 13 comes with a number of major new features including a redesigned Reminders app, faster Face ID, system-wide Dark mode, improved Safari, and more.

1. Dark Mode

The biggest feature of iOS 13 is the new Dark Mode. This is truly system-wide. It stretches from the Lock screen to the widgets screen to Apple’s own apps. Even the keyboard gets a better version of the dark mode. Dark mode can be enabled easily from the Control Center.

Safari has received a major update in iOS 13 and iPadOS 13. It now features a dedicated Download manager which means one can now use the browser to download files.

On iPadOS 13, Safari will now load the desktop version of websites to offer a better browsing experience.

5. QuickPath

The stock keyboard in iOS 13 has finally gained gesture-based typing known as QuickPath. This is similar to the swipe-based typing experience offered by SwiftKey and Gboard.
