Apple has released the first Public beta of iOS 13, iPadOS, and MacOS Catalina software for testing purposes. Apple introduced these new versions of its Operating Systems at its WWDC event happened earlier this month. For the first time, iPads have their own Operating System because the company has started putting a dedicated focus on them.
Apple at its WWDC 2019 event thoroughly explained some of the important features of iOS 13, iPadOS, and macOS Catalina to tell you what new things will eventually arrive on your Apple devices. Apple released the developers' betas of these new versions last week but the public beta is arriving now only.
According to Techcrunch and SixColors, Apple is making the macOS Catalina beta available to public beta users. Apple originally said that the macOS Catalina public beta would be available in July but it has appeared a bit early.
Those who’re excited to try out new OS before the stable ones come must note that these beta updates may contain some inaccuracies or have the potential risk of losing data. So, expect usual bugs, performance issues, and app compatibility issues with the early betas of macOS Catalina. The company advises you to only download beta software on a secondary device or one that’s not mission-critical hardware.
Apple’s beta website is currently down, with the company saying that it’s “busy updating the Apple Beta Software Program website and will be back soon.”
