Apple has now released the next pre-release version of iOS 15. It’s already the fourth beta for developers and it brings a lot of small changes with it – as well as a new layout for the account details display and a new interface for sharing photo memories.
The fourth beta is packed with improvements, changes in design and layout, and new features. For many iOS users, it should also be interesting to see how the Safari redesign will proceed: Apple continued to work on Safari after the initial “defuse” of the design changes. There is now the new reading mode and the bookmark display to activate and where the info button was previously, the share option is now available. In addition, Apple has been working on the new “Focus” feature. The update still contains a large number of bug fixes from the previous beta versions for developers and from the public test program. A number of other improvements have also been incorporated.
The new version is now available to registered developers as an over-the-air update. In the public beta program, you still have to wait for the update. iOS 15 brings new features to FaceTime, distraction reduction tools, updated notifications, and privacy improvements. Apple has also activated SharePlay in iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 so that users can watch video content or listen to music together via FaceTime.
This is how you take part in the beta program
Participation in the beta program is free of charge and requires a one-time registration for the program at https://beta.apple.com/sp/betaprogram/ from the relevant device. This also applies to all beta versions that Apple is testing, i.e. for iPhone, iPad, Watch, Mac, and TV. To do this, users have to store their Apple ID and then automatically receive the update via the update function. New versions are then also automatically transferred to the device.
With the first preliminary versions that Apple is releasing for iOS 15, which will officially be launched in autumn, there is of course always a risk that the version will cause chaos on the user system. If you want to be on the safe side, you should hold back a little until the next public beta is available and wait to see which bugs and problems appear in the first days after the release. Testing the betas is always at your own risk and should not run on the “productive system”.
The finished iOS 15 is to be released in the fall, as it has been in previous years. It is very likely that the next iPhone launch in September will take place. It is expected to be a free update for all iPhones starting with the iPhone 6s.
