Update (04/16/2020): On Thursday, Apple seeded the first public betas of iOS 13.4.5 and iPadOS 13.4.5 to the public beta testing program. If you are already part of the program, you can download and install the pre-release software now. If you are not, you can visit Apple’s Beta Software Program and sign up, register your devices, and begin testing out early versions of software before their public launch.

On Wednesday, Apple seeded the second betas of iOS 13.4.5, iPadOS 13.4.5, tvOS 13.4.5 and watchOS 6.2.5 to developers. As you can tell from the numbering here this is a minor update in the grand scheme of things, and will primarily focus on updates and improvements behind-the-scenes rather than a ton of forward-facing new features for users.
Still, the pre-release software will be available to developers (and public beta testers in the near future) until Apple releases the new software to the public at some point in the relatively near future.
iOS 13.4.5 and iPadOS 13.4.5 can be downloaded directly from the Apple Developer center for registered developers. The proper configuration profile must be installed on devices that are going to test the pre-release software. The same can be said for iPadOS 13.4.5.
Registered developers can update their Apple TV set-top box by downloading the pre-release software via a profile that’s installed using Xcode.
To update the Apple Watch to watchOS 6.2.5, registered developers must have the Apple Watch paired and within range of the iPhone, the watch’s battery must be at least 50%, and it must be connected to its charger.
As far as what’s new in the latest version of the pre-release software, that remains unknown at the time of publication. However, if there are any major discoveries found in the new releases we will update this post accordingly. While Apple did not appear to include a fix with the first developer beta, it remains possible this update will address a recently discovered bug related to Virtual Private Networks (VPNs).
We’ll let you know of any new discoveries made.
