ProRes Video and Macro Toggle mode for iPhone 13 Pro users are among the many new features of iOS 15.1 Beta 3

There aren’t too many additional features to cram in and I imagine with large bugs being introduced, Apple will circle the wagons and work on those going forward. The next couple of releases will be focused on fixing bugs, then we should see it out in the wild just before or right after Halloween.

The iOS 15.1 Public Beta is rolling along at a regular pace. With weekly releases and plenty of juicy extra features, I imagine we’ll see a public release before the end of the month. However, the fact that major bugs like dropped phone calls are creeping in to the beta at this point highlight the risk of running beta software as well as the fact that iOS 15.1 isn’t quite ready for public release.

Highlights

  • Remember, this is beta software and Apple makes it extremely clear in the agreement you scroll past on the way to the Agree button that it can do anything up to and including bricking your device and corrupting your data. My Public Beta Installation Guide has all the housekeeping steps you need to take before installing the beta.

  • Head over to the Apple Beta Program site on the device you’d like to enroll, sign in with your enrolled Apple ID (or create a beta account if you don’t have one already) and follow the steps, it’s as simple as that! You’ll download the beta profile to your iPhone or iPad, then reboot, check for a software update, and you’ll be testing in no time!
