iOS 13.5 Beta 3 has been released for iPhone and iPod touch

Apple have released iOS 13.5 beta 3 to all beta devices currently enrolled in the Apple Developer program. 

What’s new in iOS 13.5 beta 3:

  • iOS 13.5 beta 3, previously labelled by Apple as iOS 13.4.5 beta 3, includes the new COVID-19 Contact Tracing API, which is officially launching everyone sometime in May. 
  • Fixes the bug that was occurring in the Mail app on iOS, which allowed remote hackers to infect a user’s device. 
  • Fixes the bug that occurs in the Mail app, which allowed remote hackers to run code on the device.

iOS 13.4.5 was relabelled as iOS 13.5 beta 3 because the new contact tracing API was built using a 13.5 SDK (Software Development Kit), which resulted in Apple having to change the build version of the update.
