Apple has started to roll out the fourth beta version of iOS 15.1 to public developers for testing purposes. The update comes a week after the company released the third beta version and three weeks after the new operating system was officially released to the public. The new beta version arrives just before the company’s special event next week on October 18. It also indicates that we may be just a few days away from the official public launch of iOS 15.1. A report on AppleInsider suggests that the tech giant will officially release the final version of iOS 15.1 in the last week of October, a week after Apple’s special event.
The beta update brings new features and fixes the bugs that were detected by users after installing the new version. One of the main features that came along with the first beta was SharePlay, which the company promised to be part of iOS 15, but was removed just before launch.
The third beta version of iOS 15.1 added new camera features that the company promised. The update allowed users to record video with Apple’s ProRes codec. Users have also gained access to the lever that controls the auto macro mode. If you have signed up as a developer on the Apple Beta page, the update will be available to you in the Settings section. If you haven’t received the update yet, keep checking as it sometimes takes a few minutes to roll out for all registered developers.
In addition to iOS 15.1 beta 4, the company also released -watchOS 8.1 Developer Beta 4 – Build 19R5566a, tvOS 15.1 Developer Beta 4 – Build 19J5567a, HomePod 15.1 Beta 4 – Build 19J5567a and macOS Monterey 12 Beta 10 – Build 21A5552a.
