Apple is now on its fourth and potentially final round of betas for its current operating system generation, with golden master builds of iOS 13.6, iPadOS 13.6, tvOS 13.4.8, and watchOS 6.2.8 now available to download by developers. The company also issued a fresh beta for macOS 10.15.6.
Apple has moved on to its second round of the current beta-testing cycle with developers now able to try out new and renamed builds of iOS 13.6 and iPadOS 13.6, along with tvOS 13.4.8 and macOS 10.15.6 which retains their version numbers.
Apple has moved on to its fourth generation of betas for the current cycle, providing developers with new builds of iOS 13.5 and iPadOS 13.5 that integrate Exposure Notification and improved Face ID unlocks for mask wearers.
A week after it completed the last beta testing cycle, Apple has restarted the process once more, issuing new first betas for the unusually numbered iOS 13.4.5, iPadOS 13.4.5, tvOS 13.4.5, and macOS Catalina 10.15.5.
