iOS 16 Public Beta

iOS 16 Public Beta 1 Release Date Announced

Historically, Apple has made the first beta available to developers on the same day as the announcement, which is of course, today. Apple wants to make sure that the update is in as good a place as it can be before making it available to the public, though, and that won’t happen until later this year – likely in or around September.

But those who are on the public beta program won’t need to wait quite so long – the first beta to be made available via that program will land next month in July.

Essential Apple Podcast 251: Talking to Aidan Fitzpatrick of Reincubate

This week Simon is joined by special guest Aidan Fitzpatrick, a serial app inventor and data privacy evangelist who has the distinction of being the first to “crack the code” on creating technology so people could recover their lost Apple data (neatly thwarting the FBI’s early requests for a back door access). His efforts in social impact technology and app and data creation has earned him England’s highest technology honor from the Queen of England, the Queen’s award, twice. He’s been an invited speaker for Google, Snap and a host of other technology leaders and his most recent app, Camo, is revolutionizing how people engage in virtual meetings, streaming and content creation.
