Apple releases iOS 13.4 beta 4 for developers


The frequency with which Apple has been releasing updates to its operating systems lately is encouraging. Indeed, the period from September 2019 to March 2020 has the highest density of updates per unit of time. Needless to say, if only in the last two months of last autumn, Apple managed to release more than ten updates. It’s a real record, because nothing like this has ever been done in Cupertino. Another thing is that, probably, all these updates were released not because of the generosity of the developers, but because of problems that needed to be urgently fixed. Well, at least by iOS 13.4 Apple was focusing on expanding OS functions, and not on bug fixes.

March 3, Apple released the fourth batch of beta versions of iOS 13.4, iPadOS 13.4, tvOS 13.4, macOS 10.15.4, and watchOS 6.2. Traditionally, at the initial stage, they are available for download only to owners of compatible devices with developer accounts, whose maintenance costs $ 100 per year. However, if you are lucky enough to find a valid beta profile, which appear quite often on the Web, and which, as a rule, is not difficult to find, you can install updates too.

What’s new in iOS 13.4

  • Sharing folders in iCloud Drive;
  • New memoji;
  • CarKey interface for opening and starting cars using iPhone;
  • Ability to set up shortcuts on external keyboards for iPad;
  • Interface changes in the Mail application;
  • References to 6th generation Apple TV and Powerbeats 4 headphones.

As you can see, the list of innovations is not very extensive, given that, most likely, iOS 13.4 is the last functional update of the mobile OS from Apple, which we will see before the fall of 2020. It is possible that during this time the company will present several more patches with fixes for errors and vulnerabilities that developers somehow allow, however, they will obviously not carry tangible innovations in themselves. In any case, based on the experience of previous years.

When iOS 13.5 comes out

Why Apple is releasing the final update of the thirteenth iteration of iOS, I think, is understandable and so. Due to the initial pace that Cupertino took immediately after the release of iOS 13, the company’s developers were forced to integrate into a new schedule, firstly, to release all the innovations that were originally planned for the debut version of iOS 13, and, secondly, for in order not to leave users without new features for a long time. But since it cannot be ruled out that Apple has implemented all the planned innovations, it is quite possible that by September we will also see iOS 13.5. If this does happen, I would be targeting May-June.
