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

Apple today seeded the fourth 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 third 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.

Did you enroll in the beta program and test it, instead of just complaining if it’s not working? Try and be a part of the solution, instead of complaining/being part of the problem ?

Yep, Apple Music is just generally more reliable across versions of 15.5.
Really? 15.4.x has brought me old-skool stutter, mutes, gaps and skipping. Haven't had this crap when I still used a Windows machine +20 years ago.
