Apple today released the fifth betas of the upcoming iOS 15.6 and iPadOS 15.6 updates for developers to test, with the new software available a week after the release of the fourth betas.
Developers can download iOS 15.6 and iPadOS 15.6 through the Apple Developer Center or over the air after installing the correct profile on an iPhone or iPad.
We don’t yet know what might be introduced in iOS 15.6 and iPadOS 15.6, as Apple has now implemented all the features announced in the iOS and iPadOS 15 updates, and work on iOS 15 will likely stop with iOS 16 approaching .
No new features were spotted in the first three betas of iOS 15.6 and iPadOS 15.6, suggesting that these are updates focused on bug fixes and other under-the-hood improvements.
iOS 15.6 and iPadOS 15.6 could be some of the last updates for “iOS 15” and “iPadOS 15” as Apple is now working on “iOS 16” to be released this fall.
Apple has also seeded the fifth developer betas of tvOS 15.6 and watchOS 8.7.
