Apple seeds second iOS 15, iPadOS 15, watchOS 8, and tvOS 15 betas to developers

It has been over two weeks since Apple seeded the first betas of its next major software updates. But the company is back with the latest. Today, the company has seeded the latest beta for iOS, iPadOS, watchOS, and tvOS.

Late in the afternoon on Thursday, Apple seeded the second betas of iOS 15, iPadOS 15, watchOS 8, and tvOS 15 to developers. It’s possible that Apple has added even more features to the mix with this latest beta. However, it’s not probable.

If Apple did add anything noteworthy to the mix, we will update this post accordingly.

Apple is still planning to seed the first public beta of eligible software at some point in July. So if you’re waiting for the public beta before jumping on board with the pre-release software, you don’t have much longer to wait. However, it’s worth noting that this is still early in development, and installing beta software on a daily driver should be avoided. Even the public betas.
