iOS 13 Public Beta

| News

Today Apple released the first public betas of this year’s major OS updates. That includes iOS 13, also known as iPadOS 13 (purely a marketing distinction at this point, they’re still the same thing under the hood), as well as macOS 10.15. As always, we strongly discourage users from installing these betas if they rely on our apps professionally or if they are unable to deal with a bug-ridden and incomplete experience. We can not offer support for beta versions of iOS, so while your bug reports and feedback are always welcome please do not expect changes, fixes or workarounds for these issues until the fall.

Since Apple’s WWDC announcements we’ve been working very hard to take advantage of their latest software improvements and we’ll have much more to say about that later this year. In the mean time, we’ve gotten a lot of questions about what Apple is changing—specifically when it comes to iTunes: these changes do not affect any users who haven’t installed today’s macOS 10.15 beta and they haven’t yet been finalized so trying to document them at this point would likely cause confusion and be unhelpful. We’ll provide more information, if needed, as we approach the general release of these updates.

What Apple has said publicly at this point is that iTunes on macOS is being replaced and the device syncing and file sharing functions currently found within it are being moved to the Finder. Apple has also said that “iTunes for Windows would continue on its current state” and should not be seeing any significant changes this fall. That’s all we know for now.

Summer is our busiest time of year, so we appreciate your understanding and patience as we work through everything to be ready on day one with incredible free updates to all of our apps later this year.
