Apple's upcoming update for iOS 13 adds a host of fun new features, piggy-backing on the changes both iOS 13.1 and iOS 13 brought to the table. When you update, expect new emojis, Deep Fusion on 2019 iPhone cameras, among so much else. Want in on the action? Apple just released the fourth public beta for iOS 13.2 today, Wednesday, Oct. 23.
This update isn't necessarily news. Apple released dev beta 4 at 1 p.m. EDT (10 a.m. PDT) today, meaning we likely know everything there is to know about the software. What is news is that we public testers now have access to the update, so we can explore the new OS ourselves.
Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be much to this update. Apple doesn't even include any context in its release notes, the second update in a row it's done so. While anything's possible, it's likely we've seen all iOS 13.2 has to offer already. From now until the official release, we expect these updates will simply contain bug fixes and other stability patches:
