Apple seeds first iOS 16.5 developer beta
Apple has distributed the first developer beta of iOS 16.5, bringing iMessage Contact Key Verification, Custom Accessibility Mode settings, the Apple Card Savings Account feature for users in the U.S., the next-generation CarPlay experience, and more.
Available now following the public release of iOS 16.4 on Monday, the iOS 16.5 developer beta can be downloaded by registered developers by opening up the Settings app on their iPhone, tapping Software Update, selecting the “Beta Updates” option and toggling on the iOS 16 Developer Beta.
The update sees Siri gain the ability to start a screen recording, as well as the addition of a new Sports tab in the Apple News app.
iOS 16.5 appears to be a minor update in comparison to iOS 16.4, which brought 21 new emoji including new animals, hand gestures, objects, and more, support for notifications on web apps added to the Home Screen, Voice Isolation for cellular calls, Crash Detection optimizations on iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro models, and more.
