- Battery percentage level will no longer be displayed after you remove the device from a charger.
- Photos shared using Sharing Suggestions now load correctly.
- Siri now works in simulator programs.

Should you upgrade?
Some users who are still on Beta 2 have reported quite a few crashing and audio stuttering issues in CarPlay. According to Apple’s changelog, this update doesn’t fix any bug related to CarPlay.
So, if you want a fix for these CarPlay bugs, you will have to wait for the next beta.
On the other hand, users who want to move to the latest version for a bug-free experience can update.
