Sixth beta versions of iPadOS, watchOS, tvOS released
14.08.2019 0 Comments
According to a long-established tradition, only developers of applications and programs for relevant devices will be able to initially install updated OSs. To do this, you will need to download the developer profile by first joining the Apple Developer Program on the company's official website. If you previously installed the previous developer beta versions, then your devices will download updates automatically, without dancing with tambourines, "through the air."
In fresh test builds, most of the shortcomings found in previous beta were fixed, and functionality was expanded. The presentation of new Apple gadgets is getting closer – and the new test builds are becoming more stable, not much different from the final ones.
As usual, we strongly advise against downloading test versions of operating systems. They may contain bugs, security holes, Apple does not guarantee the stability of their work. In addition, you risk losing data in the event of a failure; your gadget may stop functioning correctly. Therefore, it’s much more reasonable to wait for the final versions of 13 iPadOS and tvOS, 6th watchOS and the final “Catalina” for Macs to be released – it’s a good thing they all come out in September. If, despite the warning, you still want to try out new OSs, while you are not a developer, then it makes sense to wait for more stable public beta versions, they are unlikely to be long in coming.
iPad OS 13 beta 6: what's new?
Most of the changes in the 6th beta version of iPadOS 13 for iPad’s are similar to those in iOS 13 beta 6.

Second – you can now add an icon to quickly turn on or off a dark theme in the control center. To do this, just go along the path "Settings" → "Control Point" → "Configure Controls", find the line "Dark Appearance", turn it on.
