News: Apple Just Released iOS 13.2 Developer Beta 3 for iPhone

Apple Just Released iOS 13.2 Developer Beta 3 for iPhone

There's nothing quite as exciting in the beta testing world as a new update. Battling overloaded servers to download the latest update as fast as possible, just to scour through the new OS looking for the biggest features to the smallest changes. It was only Thursday that Apple seeded iOS 13.2 developer beta 2, so count us surprised that we get to experience today's release of developer beta 3 so soon.

At this time, dev beta 3 looks to mainly provide bug fixes and stability for issues found in dev beta 2. That last beta update introduced a handful of changes to dev beta 1, including a suite of new emojis, in-app camera settings for 2019 iPhones, new Siri & Dictation security options, and option to delete home screen apps via a Quick Action.

This update is only for registered developers. Apple published the public version of beta 3 at 4 p.m. EDT.

Apple's release notes usually offer context on any new changes present in the beta, especially those relating to bugs and developer features. However, this beta includes no information in the release notes, confirmed by Apple itself. What that means for dev beta 3 as a whole is anyone's guess:
