Apple Seeds First Betas of iOS and iPadOS 15 to Developers

Following the conclusion of today's keynote event that saw the unveiling of new versions of iOS, iPadOS, macOS, watchOS, and tvOS, Apple has made the first betas of iOS and iPadOS 15 available to developers for testing purposes.

Registered developers can download the profile for the first iOS and iPadOS betas from the Apple Developer Center, and once the profile is installed, beta updates will be available over the air. It's best to install iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 on a secondary iPhone because this is early release software that could have issues.

Over the course of the iOS/‌iPadOS 15 testing period, Apple will be able to refine new features and work out bugs ahead of the software's release, which is expected in the fall. The June release will also allow developers to build new iOS and ‌iPadOS 15 features into their apps.

The new beta software is limited to registered developers at this time, but Apple will provide a public beta for public beta testers later in the summer. Beta testing will last for several months ahead of the expected September release date of iOS and iPadOS 15.

I usually wait until about PB 3 or 4 but I’m just going to go for it this time around. The last few years the betas have been pretty stable.

Edit: smooth and problem-free thus far. I have not had any apps that don’t work. No resprings either. Battery usage is decent. 1.45 hours screen on and 4 hours screen off and I’m at 75% on my 12 Pro.

Vol, the upgrade will likely upgrade your iCloud version. Usually you cant downgrade to previous iOS version backup.

I’m interested to see if anything is uncovered in the betas that wasn’t announced today.

Yes, but if you don’t want the App Library on iPad, you still have the App Library icon in the Dock, whether you like it or not.

I personally am looking forward to the iPad App Library, but I’m sure some are not.
There is a setting “show App Library in dock”…. Disable it.
