iOS 16 beta 5 now available

Each new iOS 16 beta usually includes a number of changes, bug fixes, and even new features. Apple keeps a keen eye on the feedback it receives from iOS 16 beta testers, and each subsequent beta aims to address complaints, bug reports, and performance issues. 

The build number for iOS 16 beta 5 is 20A5339d.

iOS 16 beta 4 was released two weeks ago and included changes to editing and unsending iMessage in response to abuse concerns. There are new wallpapers for CarPlay, Live Actions API support, new features for Continuity Camera, and much more.

Since the latest iPadOS 16 beta was released, we’ve learned that Apple is planning to delay releasing this update to the public. iPadOS 16 was initially slated to launch in September alongside iOS 16, but it’s now scheduled for sometime in October.
