Update: iOS 13, iPadOS 13, watchOS 6, and tvOS 13 beta 7 are now available. No update to macOS Catalina beta 5 yet. iOS 13 public beta 6 also coming today.
Apple is releasing the seventh developer beta version of iOS 13 and iPadOS 13 (possibly alongside new seeds of watchOS 6, tvOS 13, and macOS Catalina) today. The release comes just over one week since the last round of releases — save for macOS Catalina which hasn’t been updated this month. Apple’s public beta builds should follow at a later date after the latest developer beta has been tested in the wild.
Apple’s new software version won’t be complete until around September, however, so testers should still expect performance and stability issues when running the iOS 13 beta on primary devices.
iOS 12 had 11 developer beta versions last year, so the seventh developer beta for iOS 13 means we’re over the halfway point in development. iOS 13 is currently available to test for free through Apple’s public beta program as well.

Apple Watch now has the ‘Find My’ icon but the app is called ‘Find People’ (so basically still offering the same functionality as Find My Friends). pic.twitter.com/Bq6ceAM6O3
