Apple began rolling out iOS 16.1 beta 3 to developers today, with a public release of the release expected soon.
YouTuber zollotech rounded up all the changes from beta 3 in a recent video. iOS 16.1 beta 3 comes with a modem update that may resolve connectivity issues for users who were experiencing them, and other notable changes include:
- Updated and more responsive UI for wallpapers in Settings > Wallpapers with more options.
- Updated graphics for new Focus modes in Settings > To concentrate.
- New In-app content option in Settings > App store which is enabled by default. It automatically runs new apps in the background to download content before launching them for the first time.
- Remove it Material Accessories option in Settings > General, likely to work on it before reintroducing it. The Beta 3 release notes mention fixing an issue with Matter accessories, but several other known issues persist and need to be fixed.
- Added code for satellite connectivity, but the feature is not working yet. Apple plans to launch the feature later this year in November.
- Live activities for live sports scores works in iOS 16.1 beta 3, although it works from beta 2.
iOS 16.1 beta 3 also fixes a known issue with YouTube Picture-in-Picture where the video would go blank after the user entered Picture-in-Picture mode.
