We expected that yesterday at 7:00 p.m. Apple would launch the second beta of iOS 16 and the rest of the operating systems. We expected it this way because Apple usually follows a 15-day beta new release schedulebut this time it looks like we’ll have to wait a little longer and a lot longer for the public beta.
A little more time for iOS 16 beta 2
Mark Gurmann tweeted yesterday that I expected the second beta of iOS 16 and the rest of the systems to arrive next week, probably Tuesday or Wednesday. In addition, the Bloomberg reporter affirms that it will not be with this second beta that the public beta will arrive, but with the third.
It is precisely this fact that leads Gurman to deduce the following calendar: the iOS 16 beta 3 should arrive the week of July 11 and a few days after its launch the public beta would arrive. If we apply the usual 15-day period between betas to this, it means that the second beta, as we have already said, should arrive next week.
The truth is that it is striking that Apple delays both the second beta and the public beta, especially when we all agree on the enormous stability and reliability of the first versions. That said, the truth is that there are many devices, perhaps older, that may not be having the same performance, so one more week to polish mistakes will improve the situation.
Although it is still early to rule out outright that beta 2 could arrive today or tomorrow, it seems that we will have to wait a little longer. Nor can we rule out that Apple will apply changes to some other function based on feedback of the developers and that it needs a little more time to finish polishing them. We will see.
