Apple today released the fourth beta of its highly anticipated iOS 15.5 and iPadOS 15.5 updates to developers for testing purposes, with the new software coming one week after the release of the third beta.


Developers can download iOS 15.5 and iPadOS 15.5 through the Apple Developer Center or over the air after installing the appropriate profile on your iPhone or iPad.

iOS 15.5 and iPadOS 15.5 are minor updates compared to previous iOS 15 versions, and there are a limited number of changes. Apple may release a classic Apple app sometime in the near future, and there are mentions of it in beta, but it’s not yet available. Apple is using the iOS 15.5 update to lay the groundwork for functionality that will allow Reader app developers to add a link to an external website to sign up for and manage accounts outside the App Store.

There are also minor changes to Apple Pay Cash, Apple has added ordering and sending options, and Apple is making some changes to the iTunes Pass that was available in the Wallet app. We have a full list of changes in our iOS 15.5 guide.
