After three weeks of testing, Apple just released the first public beta of iOS 13. The iOS 13 Public Beta release comes as a surprise as the company announced the public beta would not be available until July.
iOS 13 comes with a various number of updates and improvements. Among these improvements, we will find the Dark Mode, the new Reminders app, the performance improvements, the new photos application, the renewed Files app, and so much more.
Is it recommended to install iOS 13 public beta? It is up to you if you want to install the iOS 13 Public Beta, as it comes with a lot of bugs and performance problems, such as audio playback, HomePods, and AirPods. Also, the developers of the third-party apps did not update them to iOS 13, so you will have issues with them running on your iPhone.
