After a long gap, Apple finally started testing iOS 15.5 and iPadOS 15.5. The first beta of iOS 15.5 and iPadOS 15.5 is here. Today Apple also announced the WWDC 2022 event which will take place in June. Before WWDC we can expect at least two iOS updates iOS 15.5 and iPadOS 15.6.
We were expecting the first beta two weeks back, but it didn’t arrive. And last week Apple pushed iOS 15.4.1 to the public with a couple of bug fixes including battery drain fix. Finally, after a gap of a couple of weeks, Apple has started beta testing for iOS 15.5 and iPadOS 15.5.
Along with iOS 15.5 Beta 1 and iPadOS 15.5 Beta 1 Apple also released tvOS 15.5 Beta 1, watchOS 8.6 Beta 1, and macOS Monterey 12.4 Beta 1. Both iOS 15.5 Beta 1 and iPadOS 15.5 Beta 1 comes with build number 19F5047e. As it is the first beta of iOS 15.5, we can expect some new features in this update. And the beta update also weighs more. In the iOS 15.5 Beta 1, the Apple Pay cash section in the Apple Wallet app now includes the Request and Send option. If you find new features let us know in the comment section.
iOS 15.5 Beta 1 and iPadOS 15.5 Beta 1
iOS 15.5 Beta 1 and iPadOS 15.5 Beta 1 are currently available to developers. But soon it will be available to public beta testers. If you have installed a beta profile on your phone, then you will get the OTA update. To manually check for the update go to Settings > General > Software Update. If you are on a public stable build and want to test beta 5, then you need to install a beta profile.
Before updating your iPhone or iPad, make sure to charge it at 50% and take a backup. As it is a beta update there can be some bugs.
Apple’s Next event WWDC22 will take place between 6 to 10 June.
