iOS 16 beta 8: Apple releases the new developer version
It’s official: iOS 16 beta 8 – build 20A5358a – is available for download for registered developers via the Settings app. By selecting the “General” section and the “Software update” item, it will be possible to install the latest beta released by Apple, which seems to be arriving shortly even in the public version.

At this point, therefore, it is evident that all his attention is focused on bug fixes of the last minute and of the performance issues. Internally, Apple has shifted much of its focus to iOS 16.1, which is likely to be released later this fall.

On the other hand, on September 7th Apple will hold the presentation event of iPhone 14, Apple Watch Pro, Apple Watch Series 8 and more. . And it is very likely that it will provide some useful news about the new operating system, which could be made available in the week of September 12. Meanwhile, iPadOS 16 has been delayed until at least October. In a statement released last week, the company said that “iPadOS will ship after iOS, as version 16.1 in a free software update”. We’ll see.
