iOS 16.1 beta 1, iPadOS 16.1 beta 2 and other test updates released

Apple has released the first test updates for iOS 16.1, tvOS 16.1 and watchOS 9.1. They are available to registered developers and those who have added special profiles to their devices, and soon they will be able to be installed by ordinary users who have signed up for beta testing of Apple software. A second beta version of iPadOS 16.1 is also available, and there is a chance that Apple will not release iPadOS 16, but will immediately release 16.1.

iOS and iPadOS betas can be downloaded over Wi-Fi or cellular and installed with all user data intact. watchOS can be updated through a paired iPhone with at least 50% charge on the watch, macOS is updated through the computer’s system settings, and tvOS is updated on Apple TV using the Xcode utility.

These are small updates that contain the minimum number of innovations. It is possible that enthusiasts will dig into the code of these updates and find something interesting, as they usually do (for example, hints at the release of upcoming products or the appearance of some new features).

iOS 16.1 beta 1 and iPadOS 16.1 beta 2 add support for Matter Accessories technology to Apple smartphones and tablets, the corresponding option has already appeared in the system settings menu. This technology was developed by the Connectivity Standards Alliance, which includes companies such as Apple, Google and Amazon, it provides a “seamless” work of smart home gadgets from different manufacturers and their interaction with each other. Support for Matter Accessories will begin rolling out to HomeKit, Google Assistant, Alexa, and SmartThings starting this fall.
