Apple kicks off iOS 16.5 beta

Now that iOS 16.4 has been released, Apple has kicked off the next series of betas for iOS 16.5, iPadOS 16.5, macOS 13.4, tvOS 16.5 and watchOS 9.5.

At this stage the betas don’t appear to include any significant changes. According to official release notes, the iOS release contains bug fixes for Matter and other system apps while some platforms such as watchOS don’t have any notable changes.

Developers can download the betas today via the Apple Developer portal, or by opting in to the beta program on an iOS device.

This round of betas is likely to be one of the last before the next major updates are announced at WWDC, which itself is likely to be announced any day now.
