What’s new in iOS 13/iPadOS 13 Beta 3?
iOS 13 Beta 3 comes with a build number of 17A5522f and weighs about 600-700 MB on all compatible devices.
Unlike previous updates, this update brings several new features along with bug fixes and improvements. Here’s what’s new in this update –
- A new teaser image for the Apple Arcade service.
- New push notification for Secure Recordings for smart home cameras in the Home app.
- Tapping links no longer causes apps to become unresponsive momentarily.
- Wallpapers now display correctly.
- New attention correction feature in FaceTime. It ensures that eye contact will be more accurate during FaceTime video calls.
- WiFi icon is displayed correctly in the status bar while WiFi is enabled.
- A new animation showing the active screen in Split View mode (for iPadOS devices).
- A new window with a description of the features in the Notes app.
- Angry Memoji is now angrier.
It's subtle, but iPadOS 13 beta 3 shows which app in Split View is actively receiving text input.

Registered developers can download and install this update from Apple Developer Center. Non-developers, on the other hand, can use the download links for the OTA Profile or IPSW files given below.
Unfortunately, iOS 13 Beta 3 isn’t available for iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 plus. If you own an iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 plus, your best bet would be to update your device to the second beta of iOS 13, which was released two weeks ago.

Should you update?
Yes, you should definitely upgrade your Apple device to the latest beta update.
The reason being that this version comes with plenty of bug fixes as well as new features that are a major step up from the previous beta updates.
Just make sure you don’t attempt to upgrade iPhone 7 (plus) as its IPSW firmware file is the same as the one linked above for iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 plus.
