Apple today seeded the fourth betas of iOS 13 and iPadOS to developers for testing purposes, two weeks after releasing the third betas and more than a month after unveiling the new operating system at the Worldwide Developers Conference.

Registered developers will need to download the profile for the iOS 13 and iPadOS betas from Apple's Developer Center. Beta 4, like earlier betas, can be downloaded over-the-air once the proper profile has been installed.


Apple split iOS 13 and iPadOS into separate updates in 2019, one designed for iPhone and one designed for iPad. 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 is a huge update with a long list of new features. Perhaps the most noticeable outward-facing change is a systemwide Dark Mode that changes the entire look of the operating system from light to dark, darkening everything from system elements to apps.


Apple overhauled the Photos app, introducing a new Photos tab that curates your entire Photos library and shows you a selection of highlights organized by day, month, or year, and there are revamped Photo editing tools.


For the first time, you can edit video right in the Photos app, cropping, rotating, applying filters, and adjusting lighting and color. There's a new High-Key Mono lighting effect, and for Portrait Lighting in general, intensity can be adjusted.

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. Apple's even able to generate single-use randomized email addresses so you don't have to give your real info to apps and websites.


Maps features 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 option in Messages along with new Memoji and Animoji stickers, and Siri has a new voice.


CarPlay in iOS 13 has been overhauled with a new look, multiple sets of AirPods (or Powerbeats Pro) can be connected to the same phone so you can share music with a friend, Siri on HomePod can detect multiple voices for multi-user support, and HomePod also supports Handoff.


There are a ton of additional new features and changes coming in iOS 13, and for a full rundown of what you can expect, you should check out our iOS 13 roundup. Each new beta brings new features and changes to iOS 13, and the third beta introduced a FaceTime Attention Correction option, changes to Split View to make it more obvious which window is being typed in, a Me tab for the Find My app, and more.

The beta testing period will allow Apple to work out bugs ahead of the release of iOS 13 and iPadOS, and it will let developers build iOS 13 and iPadOS features into their apps ahead of a public release coming this fall.

What's New in iOS 13 Beta 4


- Quick Actions - There's a refreshed look for Quick Actions on the Home screen, which adds a new "Rearrange Apps" option that lets you quickly get to the wiggle mode that allows apps to be moved around.


Messages - In the Messages app, if you tap with two fingers on the display, it brings up the interface for selecting and deleting messages.

Waiting for the public beta. Hopefully Sidecar, and the Lightning to USB 3 adapter, start working with the iPad Pro 10.5.

Sidecar has never worked for me (with a 2017 MacBook), and PB2 killed the adapter. The adapter was working in PB1.

Also, let's get reverse scrolling, as well as proper scrolling support for the Magic Mouse 1 (and support for Magic Mouse 2 as well).

lets hope CarPlay is fixed!
What is your bug that needs to be fixed? I just want them to fit everything on the smaller car screens. I am tired of not seeing the entire name of the artist or the album (or the channel on SiriusXM). it's so annoying!

Cool. I’ve been waiting for it. I thought the second beta was far less buggy than the third one.

Today I couldnt drag attachements out of mail, and my ipad kept suggesting over and over again to share a photo memory of a certain event... :D There's still a ton of small bugs and glitches (Anybody noticed how the "send mail" arrow icon is not EXACTLY aligned with the two icons underneath it?) but overall it already runs pretty well for me..

I guess we can expect the next public beta only next week?

I hope it fixes my iPhone freezing on the control center when I connect my AirPods, the mail app showing emails of an inbox that has been deactivated and not being able to „Paste“ something randomly in text fields on safari.

Pretty happy besides those

Hoping this is better than beta 3. That was a big step backwards in stability for my XS Max. Spurious reboots, email client not working properly since original beta, among other things.

"...Photos tab that curates your entire Photos library and shows you a selection of highlights organized by day, month, or year..."

And of course since Apple knows best, they decide for me what are MY highlights.

Still no way to simply organize photos by date taken in ascending or descending order independently in given folders???
Really?
