Apple Seeds Second Betas of iOS 15.3 and iPadOS 15.3 to Developers

Apple today seeded the second betas of upcoming iOS 15.3 and iPadOS 15.3 updates to developers for testing purposes, with the new software coming three weeks after the launch of the first betas and a month after the launch of iOS 15.2 and iPadOS 15.2.

iOS and iPadOS 15.3 can be downloaded through the Apple Developer Center or over the air after the proper profile has been installed on an iPhone or an iPad.

There's no word yet on what's included in the iOS 15.3 and iPadOS 15.3 betas, suggesting that it likely focuses on under-the-hood improvements and bug fixes.

There are a few features that Apple has yet to implement, such as Universal Control and support for IDs in the Wallet app. ‌Universal Control‌ will let multiple Macs and iPads be controlled with the same keyboard and mouse, and Apple recently said that the feature will come out in the spring. There were no signs of ‌Universal Control‌ in the first beta, so it looks like it could instead come int iPadOS 15.4.

Digital IDs in the Wallet app has been in the works since Apple introduced the feature at WWDC in June. Arizona, Georgia, Connecticut, Iowa, Kentucky, Maryland, Oklahoma, and Utah are expected to be the first states to implement digital ID support, and Florida is also in talks to support the feature.

So weird to think we're 6 months out from iOS 16 Beta 1. Just like what @yabeweb said - hopefully we get nothing but bug fixes at this point so iOS 16 features will have a solid platform to work on. What am I saying? At that point, Apple would have to push some crazy features to keep the Apple fans happy. It was nice thinking ...

Under the hood improvements and bug fixes. Stability and battery life, that’s just what we need now to make everyone adopt iOS 15.
Now if only the MacRumors website using Safari didn't consume so much battery. It really is the most energy hogging site I navigate to. Examples latest iPadOS 15.3 beta., MacOS 12.2 beta.
