Apple released the first public betas of iOS 15.3 and iPadOS 15.3 to the public

Because this beta version comes so soon after the public release of iOS 15.3 and iPadOS 15.3, it’s safe to conclude that Apple hasn’t crammed the software with new features.

Cupertino-based The first betas of iOS 15.3 and iPadOS 15.3 have been officially distributed to registered developers by Apple Inc. This update comes just days after the public release of iOS 15.2 and iPadOS 15.2.


  • Unfortunately, Apple is yet to introduce a number of expected features through the few software releases that have followed on from the initial release of iOS 15.0. Device owners and developers are expected to gain access to Universal Control and IDs for use within the native Wallet app.

  • It’s also worth mentioning that this is yet another point release, which means it’ll most likely contain just bug fixes and speed improvements aimed at making the experience on all supported iPhone and iPad devices a lot more pleasurable.

Registered developers who are interested in testing out iOS 15.3 and iPadOS 15.3 can download the firmware through the Apple Developer Center. Alternatively, if a configuration profile is installed correctly to a compatible device, the latest beta releases will show up as available downloads via Settings > General > Software Update.

Given that Apple hasn’t really addressed these features recently, or talked about them, it feels like the company will use iOS/iPadOS 15.4 to introduce them to the masses. Of course, developers will get their hands on them in the first instance.

As always, if you are a developer looking to try out this latest slew of betas, make sure you install directly to a secondary device rather than a daily driver. Also, please ensure that any issues, feedback, or bugs are reported directly to Apple. After all, that is the point of beta software and why Apple gives access to developers before the general public.
