Apple today released first developer betas as part of its next round of software releases: iOS 13.4, iPadOS 13.4, macOS 10.15.4, tvOS 13.4, and watchOS 6.2. Here’s what’s new in these releases.

One of the biggest changes in today’s updates is that developers can now sell macOS and iOS versions of their apps as a single purchase.

The update also brings support for iCloud Drive folder sharing. This feature was initially slated to be included in iOS 13 last fall, but Apple delayed it until spring of 2020. iCloud Drive folder sharing allows an Apple user to share a folder once, and have everyone be able to see the contents of that folder as they change.
