I have always used the Mac betas on my laptop. Never did it on an iOS device before, and kinda don’t mind if it acts up during work hours since then I’ll spend the day working on my devices rather than working on work stuff and get paid to fix my own stuff. Only go to work to have something to do during the day when my boyfriend is at work, since he won’t text all day and takes a job seriously. I don’t care about income or money. Having money and paying bills is so depressing, rather spend money I don’t have and party and have pleasure than a job.

Just live off of credit cards and don’t pay bills. Plus my mom has money so I should not have to work. She should be supporting the 2 of us.

Just installed on my iPad Air 2.

Looks OK so far. Small icons take little getting used to. Glad I couldn’t use my iPad Mini for this

I just noticed that the icons are the same as on my iPhone. I can cope with them being smaller on there so it shouldn’t be a problem here. Less wasted background as well.

Is that public or developer please?

No update offered yet on my iPad, which is on the public one.

Still no update yet. Do I need to do anything other than use the normal software update option?

What happened with my update was, I read that a new public beta had been released as usual with the announcement of a new developer beta (4). So I went to software update in settings and clicked check for update and there was beta 3. I don’t suppose you have automatic updates turned on? If so you may be running the beta 3 version already. If checking for updates says you are already up to date then I don’t really have an answer for you.

iPhone (and I assume iPad) now sync with iTunes in the new beta 3 release of iOS 13. Carrier update included.
Obviously this is good news for those users not intending to upgrade to Catalina immediately but would like to use the new iOS. There are still some features that are included in iOS 13 that will not be available until Catalina is installed such as the new Reminders app features.
In addition there has been an iOS 12.4 update released today along with a MacOS Mojave 10.14.6 update. All of which I assume is in preparation for the gold release of iOS and macOS 10.15

No updates yet. I do have auto-update set. It still says 13.0

All my iPhones updated successfully, except the the 5c

I don’t and have never allowed auto-updates but that’s just me. My devices also just display iOS 13 in Settings > General > About so I think that’s normal. I can’t find anywhere on my devices which says which beta version I’m running but I know I’m on beta 3 because I downloaded an installed it a week ago. It’s quite possible that your devices downloaded and installed the latest version as well while locked, charging an connected to wifi.

I still can’t work out which version of the beta I have installed. I tried removing the profile and restarting and then redownloading the profile but it still just says 13.0 and that it is updated fully.

Very strange.

If you're referring to the iPad beta, it doesn't show which version beta has been installed. I know that my iPad is up to date but it only shows iPadOS 13. Even though the public betas for iOS and iPadOS are presented by their number, that number does not show on your device.

I think you're spinning your wheels over nothing. :wink
