Just when people thought that Apple wasn’t going to release the beta update this week as it’s already the end of the week, Apple officially rolled out the fourth iOS 16.2 beta update for developers. Last week, there was no beta update since it was Thanksgiving week. Earlier this week, Apple came out with a new incremental update iOS 16.1.2 for users. Now, Apple has also released the iPadOS 16.2 Beta 4, tvOS 16.2 Beta 4, macOS Ventura 13.1 Beta 4, macOS Monterey 12.6.2 RC 3, and watchOS 9.2 Beta 4 updates. The new iOS update comes with the build number 20C5058d.
Changelog for the new iOS update
Since there have already been three beta updates released by Apple, most of the iOS 16.2 features are already out. Moreover, in the current beta update, Apple has given much more importance to bug fixes and user experience improvements. Still, you will likely find some changes in the UI.
The new beta update will bring forth a new Modern update, at least for the iPhone 14 Pro models. Moreover, there is a noticeable change in the notification scrolling animation on the Lock Screen. The Dynamic Island outline in the Dark background will also be less visible than before. Apple Watch Mirroring will be the latest Setting in Accessibility.
How to download and install the fourth iOS 16.2 beta update
The iOS 16.2 beta 4 update has currently become available for developers. The update will be available to all public beta testers soon and eventually be released to the public. The update will appear only if you have installed the beta profile and updated it to one of the iOS 16.2 beta updates. In order to manually check for the update, head over to Settings -> General -> Software Update -> Download and Install.
