Apple Releases iOS 13 and iPadOS 13 Beta 4 [Update: Public Beta Out]

iOS 13

Apple today released the fourth beta of iOS 13 and iPadOS 13. The latest beta comes with a number of bug fixes and stability improvements as Apple works towards the final public release of iOS 13 and iPadOS 13 in September.

Additionally, the latest beta should contain some minor new features and enhancements which is something that we will continue to see the company doing until the first public release of the OSes.

While not confirmed, the beta likely also fixes the security flaw found in previous iOS 13 beta that provided one with unauthorized access to Autofill passwords.

Download iOS 13 and iPadOS 13 Beta 3

If you are already running iOS 13 Developer Beta 2 on your iPhone, you just need to go to Settings -> General -> Software Update and download the beta 3 OTA.

The same steps are also applicable for downloading iPadOS 13 Beta 3.

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

iOS 13 Features

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.

2. 30% Faster Face ID Unlock

Something that will be noticeable instantly for iPhone X and above is that Face ID unlocked more than 30% faster.

3. Faster App Loading

Apple is continuing the focus on performance from iOS 12. The apps now launch twice as fast. And app downloads will be 50% smaller while app updates will be over 60% smaller.

4. Redesigned Volume HUD

The new Volume HUD appears in the top-left corner of the screen in an unintrusive manner. It first shows up as a full-sized slide. But it immediately shrinks and becomes unintrusive.

5. iCloud Drive Folder Sharing in Files App

You can now share a whole iCloud Drive folder with other users using the Files app.
