Apple Seeds Third Betas of iOS 15.5 and iPadOS 15.5 to Developers [Update: Public Beta Available]

Apple today seeded the third betas of upcoming iOS 15.5 and iPadOS 15.5 updates to developers for testing purposes, with the new software coming one week following the release of the second betas.

iOS 15
Developers can download iOS 15.5 and iPadOS 15.5 through the Apple Developer Center or over the air after the proper profile 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. Apple is using the iOS 15.5 update to lay the groundwork for functionality that will let developers of "reader" apps add a link to an external website for the purpose of signing up for and managing accounts outside of the App Store.

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 15.5 guide.

I hope this fixes the iMessages bug I've been having.

Edit: Did not fix it.
I can’t believe it has to be asked but…
What bug are you specifically referring to?
Is it a bug you were having on the latest public release?
Is it a bug that other people are having as well?
Are you 100% sure that whatever this bug is, it’s not due to something on your end?
And Most importantly, have you reported this bug directly to Apple using the Feedback utility and the feedback website?

You reported it through to Apple correct? That’s what betas are for.
