Now that the third betas of Apple's next big updates are out there in the wild, the details are still trickling in. There's quite a bit of new in the latest prerelease software beta. And now we know one more bit, which should be helpful to those who might be worried about available storage on their device(s) when the new update arrives.
We continue to march towards the inevitable public release of Apple's next big operating system updates. Before that can happen, though, developer and public beta testers need to get their hands on prerelease software. The goal? Test out the platforms, work out the bugs, develop apps, and prepare for the next big thing.
Apple is already a couple of developer betas in for the next big updates to its major platforms, but the time has finally arrived for the first public betas to make their way out into the wild. Which means folks who want to jump on board the bandwagon super early, while the software is still potentially rough, you can do just that.
At this year's Worldwide Developers Conference, Apple showed off one of the more oft-requested features for the Wallet app: support for drivers licenses. Apple hasn't been shy about this being one of the features it has wanted to bring to iOS for quite some time. And with iOS 15 and watchOS 8, that reality is a reality.
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.
watchOS 8 brings a significant update to the Home app on your Apple Watch, making it easier to control your HomeKit accessories and scenes, use Intercom and more, right from your wrist.
One of the major selling points for Apple and its platforms is privacy and security. So it's no surprise to see the company making improvements in these areas with its next big updates. In this case, Apple is expanding its privacy efforts across its most popular platforms.
Today is the day. At the special keynote to kick off this year's Worldwide Developers Conference, Apple has unveiled the next major updates to all of its platforms. And, of course, the first betas are now available for developers to start working with.
Apple's pre-recorded Worldwide Developers Conference 2021 keynote has unveiled some new features coming to the Apple Watch with the upcoming watchOS 8.0 software update.
Along with iOS and iPadOS changes, Apple is welcoming new elements to its other popular product, the Apple Watch. That happens with the next major software update, watchOS 8.
Apple's confidential information regarding upcoming changes in iOS 15, watchOS 8, tvOS 15 and macOS 13 are trickling in, with just a few hours left until the start of the WWDc21 keynote.
New watchOS 8 features should include an updated Breathe app, reportedly rebranded as Mind, plus a pair of brand new Apple Watch apps ported from iOS: Contacts and Tips.
