Apple Seeds First Public Betas of iOS 15.5 and iPadOS 15.5

Apple today seeded the first public betas of iOS 15.5 and iPadOS 15.5 to its public beta testing group, with the software updates coming one day after Apple provided the betas to developers.

iOS 15
The iOS and iPadOS 15.5 betas can be downloaded over the air after the proper profile from Apple's public beta testing website has been installed on an iPhone or iPad.

iOS 15.5 and iPadOS 15.5 are minor updates compared to prior iOS 15 point releases, and there are a limited number of changes. Apple may be releasing an Apple Classical app at some point in the near future and there are references to it in the beta, but it is not yet available.

There are also minor changes to Apple Pay Cash, with Apple adding Request and Send options, and Apple is making some changes to the iTunes Pass that used to be available in the Wallet app. We have a complete list of changes in our iOS 15.4 guide.

This is the version guys -- finally all the issues will be fixed.



(just in time to begin hearing about iOS 16 and starting the cycle all over again - sigh)

Hope this first beta incorporates the various bug fixes and security fixes that were part of iOS/iPadOS 15.4.1 release.

Reminder this Universal Control requires iPadOS 15.5, and Macs need to be running macOS 12.4. They made performance improvements. :)

Poor iPadOS 15. Took 300 days to get Universal Control, albeit beta, and then literally thrown on an iPad Mini with terrible UI scaling setting back iPadOS even further. I’ve owned all the iPads and after selling my my Mini last week I’ve exhausted any love for these devices I once had.

Maybe when we get a Mini or similar sized tablet with OLED, ProMotion, and properly oriented camera but this will never happen.

Does it fix the following iOS issues which have existed since iOS 14:

When trying to view information about available software updates, the text is tiny and microscopic instead of formatted to be readable on the screen.




White text and icons on white background in Control Center:



Why does Apple not want text to be readable?
