Ioshackz.com Apple Releases Golden Master Version Of iOS 13.6, watchOS 6.2.8, And tvOS 13.4.8 Apple has released the golden master version of iOS 13.6 and iPadOS 13.6 since it relabeled from iOS 13.5.5. The company also seeded the golden master beta of watchOS 6.2.8, tvOS 13.4.8, and fourth developer beta of macOS 10.15.6. If you have registered in Apple’s Developer Program, then the betas are now made available for you to download and install over-the-air.
Though the first developer beta of iOS and iPadOS 13.5.5 did not provide any significant forward-looking features for users, the second developer beta does include signs of a new Apple News+ Audio feature. The pre-released software also includes a new “Symptom” section within the Health app, and a new switch to manage the automatic downloads and installation of future software updates.
iOS 13.6 also brings support for Car Key, which is designed to allow an iPhone or an Apple Watch to be used as a physical key to unlock an NFC-enabled vehicle. Car Key needs to be implemented by car manufacturers to function, and BMW is one of Apple’s first partners.
Other than that, we are not clear what new features are included in the watchOS 6.2.8 and tvOS 13.4.8 updates. However, the release notes are generic. Apple said: “This version contains bug fixes and improvements.” Nevertheless, we will keep an eye on the updates to ensure if there are new features. If they do, we will update the post as soon as possible.
We expect that iOS 13.6, tvOS 13.4.8, and watchOS 6.2.8 are likely to be one of the last updates of the current operating system before their successor coming out this fall.
