Apple has released iOS 13.6 beta 2 and iPadOS 13.6 beta 2 to developers. These latest beta updates were rolled out only a week after the release of iOS and iPadOS 13.5.5 betas.
Cupertino HQ has packed the new 13.6 beta versions for iPhone and iPad software with a few new features. We have listed down everything discovered in the latest updates.
iOS 13.6 Beta 2
Developers have found a new Apple News + Audio feature in latest beta update. This feature will allow Apple News subscribers to listen to some top news pieces and a recap of the day’s headlines on the app. According to sources, the California tach giant is working with publishers to develop, test and release audio support for News app content.
Apple has also added a new ‘Symptoms’ section in the Health app in iOS 13.6 beta. In this new section, users will be able to list down precise symptoms experienced during various illnesses, medical conditions, allergies and health related issues.
The list of symptoms includes headache, coughing, breast pain, fainting, chest tightness, chills, nausea, body and muscle ache, bloating, appetite changes and many more. Each symptom is listed with description and an option for users to identify its intensity level: Not Present, Present, Mild, Moderate or Severe.
Users will be able to easily log-in their symptoms by going to the following section:
- Open Health app > Symptoms > Add Data
This new section will be beneficial for users to log-in and track the progression of an illness or medical condition over time. Currently, female users can log in symptoms experienced during menstruation cycle.
iPadOS 13.6 Beta 2
Jeremy Horwitz on Twitter discovered a new ‘Customize Automatic Updates’ feature in iPadOS 13.6 beta 2. The new customization option will allow the users to enable automatic download and install software updates via toggle.
I don’t remember seeing this before in iOS/iPadOS – a way to let your device automatically download and/or install updates, without necessarily saying yes or no to both. Nice quality of life improvement. Found in iPadOS 13.6 beta 2. pic.twitter.com/qdEE1vKneP
