    Apple today released the second public betas of iOS 13 and iPadOS to its public beta testing group, two weeks after seeding the first public betas and a week after the third developer beta. The public beta gives non-developers a chance to test out iOS 13 ahead of its upcoming fall launch date.

    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.

    There's 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.

    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.

    I just hope it’s not the same like the developer one, mainly because I saw there are many issues.
    I am doing this on my ipad pro 11....

    Hopefully there are more big fixes from last week’s dev build, because that was a disaster

    Brilliant. Bar there being any major glitches on this version, I’m going ios 13 this weekend. Although, I am very superstitious. And the ‘13’ side of things does put me off :D

    670 MB on my iPad Pro 11" and downloaded in less than 2 minutes. Public Beta.

    My iPhone XS is still estimating the time remaining and has been for 5 minutes

    EDIT: Phone downloaded in under a minute. Never been this fast before

    13 is gunna be a whopper with lots of significant new changes. I pity the folks who download it on day one when it goes live. I'm usually very wary of major updates on day one, but if there was ever a time to wait a while to install a new iOS version, 13 would be a prime candidate.

    I tried it out (the first beta) for a week and man o' man, it's got a looong ways to go. So many bugs and issues. Chief among them, was insane battery use and the lack of charging quickly like before. I went through the steps to go back this Saturday. I'm glad others are willing to go through the growing pains of these beta's for us, but it's just not for me. It was in a rough state and the camera app was beyond frustrating... which made the 4th of July a bit aggravating.

    That's impossible. Certainly you didn't install a beta on a production device what would lose data, right?

    Looking forward to seeing if those issues around no visuals on carplay are fixed with this update from the prior DB.

    PB1 is running pretty well on my 12.9 iPP so think I’ll let others be guinea pigs on PB2 for a while. Sheer luck based on the apps I do (and don’t) use I suspect.

    I'm in same boat. But I tried PB1 on an ipad mini 5. No issues with the apps I use there.

    how was that helpful ? Beta is for testing, to expect a perfect build from 3 releases is ridiculous. And those wondering about what's different read the release notes. Got to wonder if some actually have a legit profile or scored one from a 3rd party. Going to say these are more stable than others at the same stage.

    Cannot confirm. It's beta, but it's definitely usable.
