iOS 16.3 Release Candidate Has Arrived

iOS 16.1 beta

Apple has released another preview version of iOS 16.3 as part of the beta testing program. The beta test is coming to an end, the update is a release candidate. The final release is expected early next week.

The next iOS update has been announced: With the release of the new beta version for developers, Apple has announced that it is a release candidate. iOS 16.3 has been announced as a feature update, but will also bring important bug fixes.

What’s new

New features include a new splash screen, Apple ID security key support, iPhone to HomePod handoff, and more. In addition, there are all sorts of changes “under the hood”. According to the current state of knowledge, Apple will fix a display problem with the iPhone 14 Pro Max with the update. Now nothing should stand in the way of the release to all users.

How to join the beta program

The new update is now available as an update. Registered users simply obtain the new version over the air, i.e. as an online update. Anyone who has not yet registered for the beta program can do so at any time and join the beta phase.

Participation is free and requires a one-time registration for the program at beta.apple.com/sp/en/betaprogram from a correspondingly supported device. An Apple ID is required for this. Once you’ve signed up, you’ll get new beta versions automatically, just like any other update. However, one should keep in mind that, as with any beta version, unforeseen problems could arise. Apple, therefore, warns with every new round of beta testing that it is better not to use your productive iPhone, but a second device for the tests.
