Apple has released the third beta versions of iOS 13.4, iPadOS 13.4, MacOS Catalina 10.15.4, watchOS 6.2, and tvOS 13.4.

Both the developer beta and public beta versions are available to download now for users who are enrolled in the beta testing programs for the various Apple operating systems.

The various betas focus primarily on bug fixes and security enhancements, but there are some minor changes included in the existing beta versions of iOS 13.4 and ipadOS 13.4, including a change to the Mail app which may help prevent accidental deletions of emails from Mail in iOS and ipadOS 13, some new Memoji features, and support for iCloud folder sharing. There are also reports that iOS 13.4 beta may be working to include a capability for iPhone and iPad devices to perform over-the-air system recover, similar to the ability that Macs have to be able to reinstall system software by downloading it over the internet.

iOS 13.4 beta 3 and iPadOS 13.4 beta 3 can be downloaded now for eligible users from the Settings app > General > Software Update section.

MacOS Catalina 10.15.4 beta 3 can be downloaded from the System Preferences > Software Update section of MacOS for Mac users enrolled in the beta programs.

Both tvOS 13.4 beta 3 and watchOS 6.2 beta 3 can be downloaded from their respective software update mechanisms as well.

The most recent stable final versions of various Apple system software are currently iOS 13.3.1 and iPadOS 13.3.1 for iPhone and iPad, iOS 12.4.5 for older iPhone and iPad devices not able to run iOS 13 and iPadOS 13, macOS Catalina 10.15.3, and Security Updates for MacOS Mojave and MacOS High Sierra, watchOS 6.1.2 for Apple Watch, and tvOS 13.3 for Apple TV.

Apple usually goes through a variety of beta builds before issuing a final version to the general public. This may suggest that the final releases of the various system software could be available sometime in the coming weeks or next month, though this is merely speculation based on prior beta system software release schedules.
