Apple unveiled the developer beta of iOS 13 and iPadOS earlier this month, and now it has released the iOS 13 beta 2. The new beta version is packed with new features including the system-wide dark mode, swipe-enabled keyboard and more, according to a BGR report.
This software is available over the air (OTA) and so it is much easier to install compared to the first beta version. The iOS 13 beta 1 was available via direct download whereas developers can install the beta 2 reportedly via Apple’s developer website. The public beta will be available only in July.
The iOS 13 beta 2 is available to download on iPhone X, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, and iPhone SE. However, Apple warns that the version is intended exclusively for software developers to test their apps and start adopting the new features in the iOS.
