    Apple today seeded the third betas of iOS 13 and iPadOS to developers for testing purposes, two weeks after releasing the second betas and 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 3, like Beta 2, 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 major update with a long list of new features. Perhaps the most noticeable outward-facing change is a new 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 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.


    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. For a list of what changed in beta 2, make sure to check out our what's new in beta 2 post. Not much changed, but some features that weren't previously working were activated. We'll also be adding beta 3 changes below once we've had a chance to install the new OS.

    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 iPadOS

    - Split View In iPadOS, Split View now shows which side of the display is actively receiving text input.

    What's New in iOS 13

    - FaceTime Attention Correction - In the Settings section of FaceTime, there's a new "FaceTime Attention Correction" option that changes the way your attention is focused on the iPhone during a call. The setting says that eye contact with the camera will be more accurate during FaceTime Video calls.


    - Home app - In the Home app, there's a new popup that lets you know your cameras do not support secure recording, an iOS 13 feature, if you have HomeKit-connected cameras.


    - Find My - There's a new "Me" tab in the Find My app that displays your current location.

    - Apple Arcade - When opening the App Store and selecting the Arcade tab, there's a new video highlighting the upcoming Apple Arcade service.

    Only seeing Beta 2 when logged in. Where did you see/hear that beta 3 is out, or is this post more just based on the fact it's typically released every other tuesday?

    I’m annoyed by Safari in general. Some sites you can’t tap certain links at all.

    Turning off off link previews in Settings > Safari > Show Link Previews improved this for me as I normally only peek a link from an e-mail, not really ever on Safari.

    Me. I used to peek/pop all the time. The new tiny preview is infuriating, haha.

    This is my first time ever doing the public beta. Based on past history, do we know how long it will take for this to be released to the public beta?

    I think they just wanted to see how desperate we would get. Happy downloading!

    Public Beta's tend to be the following week of the dev beta.

    Same here! that's my biggest gripe right now. It was SO MUCH faster! I could press, slide, release (select) and BOOM! Did they do this to cater to the iPhone SE crowd?

    697 MB for this update though...

    Dark mode needs some work. It's too dark. It's dark mode, not black mode. Something along the lines of the Mojave color scheme would be a lot better.

    EDIT: So I’m a dumb and forgot I’m on public beta this year since I don’t ever deal with apps dev anymore with my new job.

    Looking forward to updating this evening and updating my post in the forums testing various drives and USB hub with my 12.9" 2018 iPad Pro. I was able to get a G-Drive 2.5" HDD, Samsung T5, and UHS-II SD card reader attached at once, but for whatever reason my T5 was painfully slow, even off the hub. I also got a notification that my Hyper iPad Dock shipped, so I'll be testing that later this week or next week, whenever it gets here. It's surprising how much power USB-C outputs on the iPad Pro to power all of those at once.

    It's a nice battery saver on the OLED screens though. Hopefully they make it auto-switching based on ambient light/time of day like on Catalina.

    Wished they would update the profile on dev site, the beta 2 profile link doesn't appear to work now.

    Can the rest of you stop downloading this, please? My download is taking ages.
