    Apple today released the fourth public betas of iOS 13 and iPadOS to its public beta testing group, two weeks after seeding the third public betas and a day after seeding the fifth developer beta.

    Beta testers who have signed up for Apple's beta testing program will receive the iOS 13 beta update over-the-air after installing the proper certificate on an iOS device.

    Those who want to join the beta testing program can sign up on Apple's beta testing website, which gives users access to iOS, macOS, and tvOS betas. Before installing a beta, make sure to create a full encrypted iTunes backup or an iCloud backup. It's best to install iOS 13 on a secondary device because beta software is not always stable and can include bugs.

    iOS 13 is a major update to the iOS operating system that runs on the iPhone and the iPad, but this year, iOS 13 and iPadOS, the version of iOS 13 that runs on the iPad, are separate downloads as they've been split up.

    iPadOS is identical to iOS 13 in almost every way, though there are some iPad-specific features such as new multitasking capabilities. For the most part, the two operating systems share the same features.

    iOS 13 introduces a long list of new features. Dark Mode changes the entire look of the operating system, shifting it from light to dark, while an overhauled Photos app makes it easier to relive your memories with new Days, Months, and Years viewing options.

    There's a new photo editing interface that makes it easier to edit photos than ever before, plus there are new tools to work with and options to edit the intensity of the built-in filters. You can edit video right in the Photos app for the first time, and on the newest iPhones, there's a new High-Key Mono lighting effect and an option to adjust the intensity of Portrait Lightning effects.

    iOS 13 adds a less obtrusive volume HUD, a new Find My app that combines Find My iPhone and Find My Friends and lets you track your devices even with they don't have an LTE or WiFi connection. A Sign In with Apple feature (not yet active) gives you a convenient and data safe way to sign into apps and websites, providing an alternative to Facebook and Google sign in options.

    Maps has a new street-level "Look Around" mode and a Collections feature for making lists of places, Reminders has been entirely overhauled to make it more functional, there's a profile feature in Messages along with new Memoji and Animoji stickers, and Siri has a new voice.

    The fifth developer beta, which is identical to the fourth public beta, brought new iPad Home screen options, Share Sheet updates, new Move Goals in the Activity app, updated volume controls, and more. For a full list of changes, make sure to check out our what's new in beta 5 article.

    There are a ton of additional new features and changes coming in iOS 13, and for a full rundown of what you can expect, make sure to check out our iOS 13 roundup.

    Anyone have issues leaving their iPhone on iOS 12, but updating iPad to 13? Not sure if it causes cloud sync issues or other problems?

    Yay! I'm updating my iPad Pro 10.5 (primary iPad) and iPhone SE (backup phone) tonight.

    I may also upgrade our two kids iPad Air 2s too, and am considering upgrading my primary phone, an iPhone 7 Plus.

    Works fine for me. iPad Pro 10.5" is iPadOS 13 Public Beta, and iPhone 7 Plus is iOS 12.3.1.

    My main issue is with third party applications. My iPad's VPN software doesn't work in iOS 13, but that's OK since I use my MacBook with Mojave for that.

    I've held off on putting this on my old iPad Air 2... hope it's stable and robust enough now. Is it worth installing yet, now that it's the 4th public / 5th dev?

    There's something about the lack of horizontal alignment on this iPad layout that really bothers me. Why didn't they just keep the clock in the header and align the top of the icons with the top of the widgets at the left?

    Ok so I’m a LONG time Apple user..but lately I feel kinda dumb owning Apple tech..googles pixel phones are beautiful IMO and android has gotten much better. you can see improvements in googles AI and at this point google really just needs to hire really good UI designers...and a Watch but as far as ecosystem I feel like google is a lot closer to it being complete than Apple is. Just left T-Mobile with a pixel 3A..but I haven’t opened it yet wanted some opinion from folks. I just think I’m paying for a name at this point with Apple..I don’t think I do enough on an iPhone to pay 1k

    Sorry, different type of VPN. I'm using Citrix to VPN into my workplace.

    I do have NordVPN, but haven't been using it on my iPad. I just used it to access (paid) US video streaming content from outside the US, on my Mac.

    each user is different. Just try and use what you feel is best for your needs and wants.

    Hoping this restores functionality to WebEx Teams. It broke in PB3.

    Back to 12 for me. It’s solid enough for most people, but notifications still need a little work. It forgets to vibrate quite a bit after a little bit. A reboot fixes it each time. I still don’t get the rational of no more camera roll though. I hate having all of my pics showing up. I made albums for a reason.

    Downloading now, I hope this next version fixes the wireless charging issue I have been having on iOS 13 version 2.

    I couldn't agree more. They tried this once before and quickly reverted after the backlash. Wonder why they thought people would suddenly like it now.

    Both will meet my needs..at the core most just need a phone to make calls and text..I have TVs so it doesn’t matter how big and beautiful the screen is really. I have consoles..sitting in boxes lol so I don’t need the phone to be a gaming beast either. What I DO want is a phone that’s being branded as “Smart” to do just that. And we all know Siri is a Basic Bitch compared to what the others are doing..and at what cost? I pay for Apple Music but often find Tidal and google play music or YouTube music to be better. I do have iCloud storage but I also have google drive storage so i don’t have any data loss issues...

    Whoa. I feel the same way. When my colleagues compare their S10+ and P30 Pro Night mode camera, I can’t even pull out my iPhone to compete hahaha. We’re just really paying for the Brand now. And what’s so good about having a super fast phone if the battery won’t even last a day after playing games.

    (Not sure this is the right thread for this conversation, but in a matter of pages this thread will be a debate over economic policy or something, so whatever.)

    For me the reason I stick with Apple is trust. I know how Apple makes money, so I know whether and how far to trust the company's products. Google makes money, primarily, by slipping new ways of monetizing its userbase into its business -- often without the knowledge or consent of its users. That bothers me, and Google has routinely violated the trust of Android users--the fact that it's "better" now just implies to me that their transgressions have gotten more complex and better-hidden.

    Yes, Android is increasingly coupling this questionable business model with solid hardware, but iPhones are by no means slouches. Apple has just always been very, very deliberate about when it adds features to its products: it does so only when it is confident that they can be leveraged well and provide actual value. There are rare exceptions to this (3D Touch is about to be removed for its lack of usefulness), but you won't get gimmicky, unreliable, or single-generation features added to an iPhones' price, which is something that is absolutely ENDEMIC on Android devices (screen folding, hyperzoom lenses, bad biometric sensors, hand gestures, physical keyboards, popup cameras, and on and on and on). There are also features I view as fully-baked that, IMO, Apple is overdue to implement (extreme low-light photography, for instance). But my point is that it's a very mixed bag.

    Anyway, the gap is not only narrowing; the gap IS narrow now. But it comes down to what you value.

    The issue that I was having with the badge app icon for Reminders is fixed! It look like a reminder was due, or overdue, when one was set for a specific time, later that day.

    Personally, I stopped being overly-impressed with Apple for a while, now. Some things are impressive, for sure, but the amount of weird glitches are equal to Android, IMO. I've known for a while that I'm paying for the ecosystem, not the Brand, and certainly not the quality (save for the XS Max. Pretty good quality phone). Overall, if I pull my head out of my Apple Biass, Apple's quality, or lack thereof, is equal to other brands. However, the integration of their ecosystem across devices is unparalleled.

    What kind of rational advice is this, you're in the wrong forums. :D
