Apple Announces Beta Versions of iOS 13.3.1 and macOS Catalina 10.15.3

Beta Versions of iOS 13.3.1 and macOS Catalina 10.15.3

Apple has just announced its third beta of iOS 13.3.1, and a new beta of its desktop OS, macOS Catalina 10.15.3 beta 3. It is not clear at the moment what the new updates entail. However, one can safely assume that both the beta versions will include important bug fixes and performance improvements. The final version of these operating systems will be launched in February, probably at the same time. 

Installing beta versions can cause many issues

Apple users shouldn’t install beta versions of operating systems because they are specifically meant for developers. Developers usually test and launch applications once all performance issues are sorted. Apple advises regular users to wait until download notifications appear on their computers. Installing beta versions may cause instability and some users have reported data loss as well. Even testers should install these on secondary devices instead of on their primary devices. 

Apple’s regularity in releasing new OS might be a marketing strategy 

Apple has consistently been releasing newer versions of its operating system. But the reason why it has taken so much interest is its competitors do not release updates so frequently. This gives Apple a competitive edge. When rivals are also catching up with features and performance, ensuring that regular software updates are released is a smart marketing strategy. It is a tried and tested scheme that has always worked in Apple’s favor. 

Before installing beta versions here is what you need to keep in mind

  • If you are as a regular user, do not install any beta versions of the OS. Wait for the public version in February
  • If you are a tester, do not install the beta on your primary device. Install it one a secondary testing device
  • Beta versions of OS can result in data loss. Make sure to backup everything even on your testing device
  • Certain enhancements can cause issues in older versions of applications. Developers need to be cautious while testing. 

Final updates are coming next month

Apple plans to release the final versions of these applications next month. That release will likely include improvements from the beta versions, with a few additional features. One needs to wait and watch in order to find out what the new updates will feature.

Today is the 10th Anniversary of iPad’s Launch

Steve Jobs at the iPad’s Launch

It's been exactly 10 years since Steve Jobs announced the iPad on the 27th of January, 2010. This was the last product he unveiled before his death due to pancreatic cancer in 2011. While today marks the 10th anniversary of the iPad’s launch, there were a lot of skeptics at that time.

They argued that a tablet was an unnecessary product. However, Jobs remained confident. He explained that there was always room for a device that was in between a laptop and a smartphone as long as it was superior at certain tasks.  True to his word, not only was the iPad successful, but even Apple's competitors launched their own tablets. 

iPad served as a prototype for future tablet models

Today, tablets have become very popular and are an integral part of how we choose to compute and browse the Internet. It wouldn't be an exaggeration to say that the iPad was the prototype for all future tablets. When Jobs announced the iPad, he referred to it as a magical and revolutionary device. He recommended everybody use the iPad to browse the web, send and receive an email, check photos, watch videos and listen to music, play games, read documents and ebooks, etc.

iPad had a very humble and modest beginning

The first iPad that he launched the game with the 9.7-inch display and 64 GB of storage. It had a single-core Apple A4 processor, 10 hours of battery life, 256 MB of RAM, Wi-Fi, and 3G connectivity, and a headphone jack. The initial iPads didn’t have cameras. People loved the iPads nonetheless because they were lightweight, and measured half an inch in thickness and weighed only 1.5 pounds. No notebook or laptop was as thin and lightweight as an iPad. Ever since Apple has continued to release a new iPad every year with several changes made to both software and hardware. 

10th anniversary of iPad’s launch proves iPad is a model for all tablets

Currently, iPads are the most important tablets and are representative of this type of gadget. Their processing power has increased, and iPad rivals notebooks and desktops in many manners when it comes to processing, ease of use, and features. Steve Jobs certainly left a very important legacy just before his passing. The 10th anniversary of the iPad’s launch is an ode to all the efforts that this man put to make computers more innovative and accessible.
