While we think that Apple will not release the beta update this week because we are already at the end of the week, Apple releases the iOS 16.2 beta 4 update. There was no beta update last week due to Thanksgiving week. But earlier this week, Apple released a new incremental iOS 16.1.2 update to everyone. Here you will know everything about the latest version of iOS 16.2 beta 4.
According to our estimate, Apple will release iOS 16.2 to everyone in mid-December. So the fourth beta could be the last or next to last beta update for iOS 16.4 and then we can expect a release candidate. iOS 16.2 will be the last major update this year for the iPhone. It brings many useful features. You can see some of its best features here.
Apple today also released iPadOS 16.2 Beta 4, macOS Ventura 13.1 Beta 4, tvOS 16.2 Beta 4, watchOS 9.2 Beta 4, and macOS Monterey 12.6.2 RC 3. The fourth iOS 16.2 Beta comes with a build number 20C5058d. Yes, the build number ends in d, but if there is an upcoming beta update, your build number might end in a.
Since there have already been three beta updates, most of the features of iOS 16.2 are already available. And so, in the current beta version, Apple has placed more importance on bug fixes and user experience improvements. But still, you will find some changes in the user interface.
The iOS 16.2 beta brings a new modem update at least on the iPhone 14 Pro models. There is also a noticeable change to the notification scroll animation on the lock screen. And the outline of the dynamic island on the dark background is less visible than before. Apple Watch Mirroring is the new Settings in Accessibility. If you find any more changes, please let us know in the comments section.
The iOS 16.2 Beta 4 update is currently available for developers. And the update will be available to all public beta testers today or tomorrow. The update will only appear if you have installed the beta profile and update to one of the iOS 16.2 beta. To manually check for the update, go to Settings > General > Software update > Download and install.
Before updating your iPhone to iOS 16.2 beta 4, make sure to backup any important data and charge it to at least 50% to avoid interruptions.
