Apple sends iOS 15.6 RC 2 to developers and public beta testers

Three days after the release of the RC version of iOS 15.6, which was technically the version that would soon be available for all users, Apple is now launching a second Release Candidate version of iOS 15.6. Here’s what’s new in this update.

Today’s version is 19G71. The previous one was 19G69. It’s unclear what changed between the two versions, although Apple likely found a critical bug that needed to be fixed before releasing the public version to all users in the near future.

After long weeks of testing without any information about this update, Apple has now announced what changes with iOS 15.6:

  • The TV app adds the ability to restart a live sports game already in progress and pause, rewind or fast forward.
  • Addresses an issue where Settings may continue to show that device storage is full even though it is available.
  • Addresses an issue that may cause Braille devices to become slow or unresponsive when navigating through text in Mail.
  • Fixes an issue in Safari where a tab may jump back to a previous page.

In addition to that, recently reported a bug in Apple Books on iOS 15.5 that Apple is also fixing with iOS 15.6.

In addition to iOS 15.6 RC 2, Apple launched RC versions of macOS 12.5, iPadOS 15.6, watchOS 8.7 and tvOS 15.6 earlier this week. For now, it doesn’t look like Apple will launch another Release Candidate on other operating systems.

While the company started previewing iOS 16, iPadOS 16, macOS 13 Ventura, watchOS 9, and tvOS 16 in June, people are focusing on these new operating systems, which are expected to launch later this fall and are now also available for public beta testers. .

Apple brings continuity features to these systems. iOS 16 has a new lock screen, iPadOS 16 and macOS Ventura bring new multitasking capabilities, watchOS 9 revamps Watch Faces, while tvOS 16 has been almost forgotten by Apple.
