Apple released the initial public beta of the future iOS 16.3 and iPadOS 16.3 updates to beta testers, making the new software available to everyone for the first time. One day after Apple gave the beta to developers, the public betas were released.
After installing the necessary certificate from the Public Beta website, beta testers who have registered for Apple’s free beta testing program are able to download the iOS 16.3 and iPadOS 16.3 betas over the air.
In comparison to iOS 16.2 and iPadOS 16.2, iOS 16.3 and iPadOS 16.3 seem to be more minor updates. For an additional degree of security for an Apple ID, the software supports physical Security Keys.
When logging into an Apple ID on iCloud or a new device with this capability, a physical FIDO certified security key can be used instead of device authentication.
The update also adds a simplified method for moving songs from an iPhone to a HomePod and vice versa, with Apple providing more information on how it works. Other significant modifications have not yet been discovered in the beta.
