Download Public Beta 3 of iOS 13, MacOS Catalina, iPadOS 13 Now
Enrolled in the public beta testing programs for iOS 13, iPadOS 13, or MacOS Catalina?
Apple has released fresh updates to the public beta builds of their operating systems, with downloads for iOS 13 public beta 3, iPadOS 13 public beta 3, MacOS Catalina 10.15 public beta 3, and tvOS 13 public beta 3 immediately available.
iOS 13 and iPadOS 13 public beta testers can find iOS 13 public beta 3 and ipadOS 13 public beta 3 available to download now from the “Software Update” section of the Settings app.
MacOS Catalina public beta testers will find MacOS Catalina public beta 3 available to download from the “Software Update” System Preference panel.
tvOS 13 public beta can be updated through the tvOS Settings app.
iOS 13 and iPadOS 13 include various new features including an all new dark theme, a redesigned Photos app, updates to other built-in apps like Reminders and Notes, new Animoji features, and new multitasking features specific to iPad.
MacOS Catalina includes new features as well, like the ability to use an iPad as an external display, as well as refinements to bundled apps like Notes, Photos, Reminders, and the splitting of iTunes into three separate apps for Music, Podcasts, and TV. MacOS Catalina also stops supporting 32-bit applications.
Anyone can enroll to participate in the Apple system software public beta testing programs, though it’s an experience generally only appropriate for advanced users who understand the complexities and difficulties of running beta system software.
Anyone interested in using the beta system software can learn how to install iOS 13 public beta on iPhone, how to install iPadOS 13 public beta on iPad, how to install MacOS Catalina public beta on Mac, or how to install tvOS 13 public beta on Apple TV.
The public beta builds typically follow the developer beta builds of system software, yet are a version behind. For example public beta 4 is usually developer beta 5, and so on. Thus if you’re enrolled in the developer program you likely received these beta updates already a few days prior.
Apple has said the final stable versions of iOS 13, MacOS Catalina, ipadOS 13, watchOS 6, and tvOS 13 will be released this fall to the general public.
