Apple has pushed out a fresh round of developer betas to those enrolled in the company's testing program, with new second betas of iOS 13.4, iPadOS 13.4, tvOS 13.4, watchOS 6.2, and macOS 10.15.4 now available to download.
Apple is seemingly taking the first steps to making an iPhone or Apple Watch function as a key for a car or van, with the presence of references to a "CarKey" API within the first iOS 13.4 beta indicating it could be used to unlock or even start a vehicle.
After a break for the holidays, Apple has returned to the beta-testing grindstone, providing developers with the second trial builds of iOS 13.3.1, iPadOS 13.3.1, watchOS 6.1.2, tvOS 13.3.1, and macOS 10.15.3.
Some snooping around in the new macOS Catalina 10.15.3 beta build has unearthed references to "Pro Mode," which could be used to temporarily boost the performance of macOS systems such as the MacBook Pro.
Apple has restarted the beta-testing process for what is likely to be the last time in 2019, issuing developers the first test builds of iOS 13.3.1, iPadOS 13.3.1, watchOS 6.1.2, tvOS 13.3.1, and macOS 10.15.3.
Apple is allegedly adjusting how it develops its operating systems internally, shifting to generating new builds of iOS, iPadOS, and others to make more of an effort to try and catch bugs and issues that have affected software updates that ship to the public.
