new beta versions of system software

Apple has issued the first beta versions of iOS 16.5 for iPhone, iPadOS 16.5 for iPad, and macOS Ventura 13.4 for Mac.

The betas arrive just a day after MacOS Ventura 13.3 update, iOS 16.4 update, and iPadOS 16.4 update arrived for the Mac, iPhone, and iPad, respectively.

It’s not clear what the focus of iOS 16.5, iPadOS 16.5, or macoS Ventura 13.4 will be, but presumably the updates will offer minor enhancements, bug fixes, and security fixes for Apple devices.

Users who are enrolled in the Apple system software beta testing programs can find the updates available to download now to test out on their devices.

For iPhone and iPad beta testing, go to Settings > General > Software Update..

For Mac beta testers, go to  Apple menu > System Settings > Software Update.

Apple usually goes through several beta updates before issuing final versions to the public, suggesting we’re at least a month from the release.

The most recent stable builds of Apple system software currently available are MacOS Ventura 13.3, iOS 16.4, and iPadOS 16.4.
