After 24 hours of the launch of the fifth beta for iOS 13 and iPadOS developers, Apple has surprised us with the corresponding fourth public beta so that any user with a compatible device can try this version. Undoubtedly The feedback that has been received from the fifth beta for developers has been so good that they did not want to delay the wait for the launch of this public beta any longer. which fixes important bugs present in the previous public beta that was released two weeks ago.

What do we hope to see in this new public beta?

We are installing this fourth beta right now on both our iPhone and iPad, but we are talking about the same beta that was released yesterday, with the same new aesthetics and the same bugs resolved. That is why we recommend you see the news of iOS 13 and iPadOS beta 5 here.

In summary, the main aesthetic innovations that we find are the following:



  • In iPadOS you can now choose the icon density that interests you the most. I mean, you can choose between a 4×5 or 6×5 grid. In the second we will have 6 app icons in each horizontal line and the first four.
  • Now we can adjust the volume of our device much more precisely. We will have at our disposal 34 volume levels to be able to make small adjustments to the sound.
  • In the Activity app there are new achievements above 1000 times you fill the circle of movement.
