Apple is speeding up its iOS 13 beta releases ahead of the fall launch.
iOS 13 beta 8 was released to developers today, less than a week after Apple released beta 7. The update is available over the air if you've already got iOS 13 installed, or you can go to Apple's Developer Center on the web.
The update to iOS 13 brings new features like a system-wide Dark Mode, a swipe keyboard, an improved editing interface in the Photos app, and a better volume UI that doesn't block your content in the middle of the screen. Also included in the update are improved versions of Apple Maps and CarPlay, a better share sheet, Memoji improvements, and a low data mode.
Coming to iPads is an update to iPadOS, which combines all of the improvements of iOS 13 with some iPad-specific updates. Those include an improved home screen that can fit more app icons and show your Today View widgets, lower latency for the Apple Pencil, support for USB drives and SD cards in the Files app, and mouse support.
Apple also released watchOS 6 beta 8 to developers today. The update to watchOS 6 includes a standalone App Store for the Apple Watch, new watch faces, and new apps like Audiobooks, Voice Memos, and Calculator.
Both iOS 13 and watchOS 6 will launch to the public this fall.
