We know that Apple is going to announce the next major version of its mobile operating system, iOS, on day one of this year's Worldwide Developers Conference on June 6, 2022. Before that, though, the rumor mill isn't quite done giving us some hints of the things that might take place in the near future. Like when the first public beta seed of iOS 16 may arrive.
Apple's Universal Control feature for working across multiple Macs and iPads using a single trackpad has lost its beta label in macOS Monterey 12.4 and iPadOS 15.5.
The second beta of Apple's upcoming Studio Display firmware appears to boost webcam quality but visual improvements aren't as pronounced as in beta 1.
WhatsApp's Linked Devices feature currently supports computers, but will soon let you link mobile devices to chat on multiple phones or a phone and a tablet.
The Meta-owned WhatsApp is testing a new feature for its iPhone app to mark a disappearing message to keep it past its expiration time.
Earlier today, Apple seeded the latest beta of iOS 15.4 to developers. The newest version of the prerelease software didn't add much to the mix. However, for fans of the Apple Podcasts app, there are a couple of new additions worth mentioning.
As we move towards an expected March release date, Apple moves right along with the beta testing process. Which means we have new beta seeds for developers. And, soon enough, public testers.
Anyone that uses Apple’s TestFlight app to beta test iOS or iPadOS apps before they’re ready for public release will be able to tell you all about the splash screen that pops up each time you begin testing a new app or when an existing app receives a new beta build.
Apple typically kicks things off for an upcoming software update with a developer beta. Soon after that, a public beta arrives to broaden the testing phase. And sure enough, that's what we have today.
Earlier today, Apple seeded the first betas of iOS 15.4 and iPadOS 15.4 to developers. Unlike the previous update, this one actually has some new features mixed in. Which means it's time to take a quick look at what's new in the upcoming software update.
Earlier this week, Apple officially released the iOS 15.3 update out into the wild, along with a few others. But the company isn't slowing down anytime soon. So today, Apple has moved right along with the seeding of yet another update for its major platforms.
An upcoming WhatsApp chat transfer feature may soon allow you to migrate your chat archive from Android to iPhone, but this doing so could require Apple's Move to iOS app.
