iPadOS 16 Beta Watch: The public beta is now available

As expected, the third iPadOS 16 developer beta hit yesterday, and the public beta followed swiftly. This means that anyone with an Apple ID, and a sense of adventure, can download the iPadOS 16 beta and help test it out.

Now, I’ve been running iPadOS 16 since the first developer beta, and while things are improving with each release, please keep in mind that this is unfinished software. You’ll get sudden reboots, especially if you’re pushing Stage Manager and using an external monitor, and things will get wonky for you. Some apps just won’t work as intended, and expect the onscreen keyboard to misbehave. It’s not recommended to run the public beta, or any beta really, on your primary device. Some of you will anyway, obviously, but fair warning.

Get on the public beta program here!
