Apple has released an updated version of iOS 17 Beta 3 alongside the revisions of other betas for macOS, tvOS, and iPadOS. It is unclear what significant changes are made in the revisions, but some developers reported they no longer experience the former keyboard issues in some of the apps they are using.
This iOS 17 Beta 3 revision bumps its last build number, 21A5277h, to 21A5277j. In the latest support document of the beta, there are still known issues in the iOS 17 beta, but Apple also shared some resolved issues. The newest version is believed to be the one that will be used for the public beta release of iOS 17, which is expected any day now.
As stated, it is currently unknown what other improvements and changes were made to the updated beta (but we will update this article as soon as we spot some), but it can be recalled that the last Beta 3 included a bunch of them. Meanwhile, according to some developer testers of the iOS 17 beta, there are improvements in the keyboard issues of iOS 17. In the last beta version, testers reported experiencing problems like the keyboard not minimizing properly and blocking the necessary text bars in the apps. Thankfully, it seems to be resolved in some developers in this updated beta, though some testers report still experiencing this in certain apps (e.g., Telegram).
The updated iOS 17 Beta 3 was released the same week Apple made other update releases to iOS users. For iOS 16, testers received the iOS 16.6 Beta 5, while its public beta was also made available this week. The update is set to officially release this month, but note that no huge features are included in iOS 16.6 as Apple is reserving all of them in iOS 17. Yet, it is expected to fix serval issues current iOS 16 users are facing, including the reported extreme battery issues in 16.5.1.
Also this week, Apple released different Rapid Security Response updates: iOS 16.5.1 (a), iPadOS 16.5.1 (a), and macOS 13.4.1 (a). However, they were all pulled hours later due to a Safari bug, causing websites to experience problems. According to reports, the issue started through the change in the Safari user agent, which now includes an (a). This reportedly caused some websites not to recognize Safari. Apple says a new fix to resolve this will “soon” arrive through new RSR updates: iOS 16.5.1 (b), iPadOS 16.5.1 (b), and macOS 13.4.1 (b).
