Apple Public Betas for iOS 13 and iPadOS Released

iOS 13 is changing up the QuickType keyboard with the new QuickPath keyboard, a feature that allows you to trace-type, like you can on Android keyboards.

iPad users can also now download and install the public beta version of iPadOS 13, which delivers desktop-class features to the iPad interface and an overhauled version of Safari.

Just like the process for downloading the latest iOS and iPadOS public betas, you need to enrol in the Apple Beta Software Program using your Apple ID to begin with macOS 10.15 Catalina public beta.

Apple's new public betas for iOS 13, iPadOS, and macOS Catalina are out, and the big question is: should you give beta software a try on your iPhone, iPad, or Mac?

Unlike previous years, iOS 13 will not be coming to iPads.

Click "Enroll Your Devices" at the top of the webpage.

Look for a button that says "Download profile", then tap on it.

iOS 13 also comes with a legion of nifty performance improvements that should make your device faster than ever before.

The flip side to all this new functionality is a whole host of new potential bugs to go with it. Apple makes no guarantees that its beta software won't be glitch-free.

Not for nothing does Apple recommend that those taking part in the Apple Beta Software Program only consider "installing on a secondary system or device, or on a secondary partition on your Mac".

Are you feeling a bit of FOMO (fear of missing out) and want to test out iPadOS before it launches this fall? Keep holding both buttons until you see the recovery mode screen.

Step #5 Once your device has been restored, sign up with your Apple ID and restore the full iTunes backup you hopefully have lying around.
