Apple today graded the fifth beta of its upcoming iOS 15.6 and iPadOS 15.6 updates to developers for testing purposes, with the new software coming one week after the release of the fourth beta.
Developers can download iOS 15.6 and iPadOS 15.6 through the Apple Developer Center or over the air after installing the appropriate profile on your iPhone or iPad.
We don’t know yet what might be introduced in iOS 15.6 and iPadOS 15.6, as Apple has now implemented all the features announced as coming in iOS and iPadOS 15 updates, and work on iOS 15 is likely to end with iOS 16 approaching.
No new features were discovered in the first three betas of iOS 15.6 and iPadOS 15.6, indicating that these are updates focused on bug fixes and other improvements under the hood.
iOS 15.6 and iPadOS 15.6 may be some of the last updates to iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 as Apple is now working on iOS 16, which is due to launch this fall.
Apple also made the fifth developer beta of tvOS 15.6 and watchOS 8.7.
