The third developer beta of iOS 16.5 has been made available by Apple, and the public beta is about to follow. While iOS 16.5 is the fifth major update for iPhones, it may not bring significant changes compared to the initial builds of iOS 16. Apple is anticipated to announce its significant OS updates, including the new iOS 17, during the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), which is slated for June. The new iOS 17 will then receive its first developer beta.
Along with iOS 16.5 Beta 3, Apple has also released iPadOS 16.5 Beta 3, watchOS 9.5 Beta 3, macOS Ventura 13.4 Beta 3, macOS Monterey 12.6.6 RC 3, tvOS 16.5 Beta 3, and macOS Big Sur 11.7.7 RC 3. iOS 16.5 Beta 3 has a build number of 20F5050f and is about 500MB in size, although the update size will be larger if you’re switching from Public to beta.
As the third beta has just been released, it is still unclear what changes have been made to this update. Any updates, though, will be added as they come out.
Users can receive the update through an OTA update on their phones if they have logged in with their developer account, or by logging in with their registered ID for the Public Beta. Go to Settings > General > Software Update to manually check for the update.
It is important to note that before upgrading to the new update, users should back up all their important data and charge their phone to 50%. With the release of iOS 16.5 Beta 3, Apple continues to provide developers with more tools and features to test and refine their apps, paving the way for the future of Apple’s operating systems.
