Many users of the iPhone and iPad are pleased with the new features of iOS 13 and iPadOS (updated iOS for iPad). Of course, if you have a developer account, then the beta version of iOS 13 and the beta version of iPadOS are available to you right now, but this is definitely not all. If you're interested in the release dates of the final version of iOS 13 and iPadOS, as well as the expected release dates of the public beta version of iOS 13 and the public beta version of iPadOS, you are definitely not alone.
Beta versions of iOS 13 and iPadOS for developers are available.
The beta version of iOS 13 and iPadOS for developers was released on June 3 at WWDC 2019.
They can be downloaded now by registered developers, and technically speaking, can be installed right now by anyone with relevant prerequisites (beta Xcode 11 or MacOS Catalina Beta), but this is not a good idea if you are not a developer because The version of system software is often problematic, buggy, unstable and not supported by the applications you use.
In addition, anyone who wants to pay an annual $ 99 Apple Developer fee can now download and download the iOS 13 and iPadOS beta versions for developers from the Apple Developer website.
Likewise, anyone can access the beta version of MacOS Catalina dev through the Apple Developer program.
Beta versions for developers are much less stable than final or even public beta versions, and therefore they are intended only for developers.
What is iOS 13 public beta and iPadOS public beta?
According to Apple, the public beta for iOS 13 and iPadOS 13 should be released in July 2019.
In previous years, Apple released a public beta of system software, often just three to four weeks after the initial beta versions for developers.
The exact release date of the public beta for iOS 13 and iPadOS is not yet known (except July), but interested users can register on the Apple Public Beta website to receive notifications and subscribe to the beta version of the program when it is available.
On the Apple Public Beta website, the banner ad simply says “Soon,” but at WWDC 2019 they gave a more specific schedule, saying that the public beta versions will begin in July.
Anyone can register with publicly available beta testing programs, and they are free, but generally speaking, they are best suited for experienced users who can install beta versions on non-essential equipment (for example, on an old iPhone or iPad).
It is expected that the public beta version of MacOS Catalina 10.15 will be held at the same time.
What is the release date for iPadOS 13 and iOS 13 for the final version?
Apple stated only that iOS 13 and iPadOS 13 will be released this fall, this information is presented on their preview pages:
For iOS 13:
For iPadOS 13:
Thus, there is no exact date known exactly when the final public versions will be released for everyone.
Autumn 2019 begins on September 23, when the autumnal equinox day comes. Therefore, it is very unlikely that the final versions of iOS 13 and iPadOS will be released earlier, and instead they will almost certainly be released after the “fall” schedule is reached.
Historically, new releases of system software often appear with the launch of new iPhone hardware in the fall, which usually happens in late September or early October. Thus, it is reasonable to assume that the final public release date of iOS 13 and iPadOS 13 roughly corresponds to this overall deadline.
Apple also said that MacOS Catalina (10.15) will also be released in the fall of 2019, which is likely to happen on the same day as the release of iOS 13 and iPadOS 13.
