Despite being called a public beta, Apple restricts members of the beta program from posting any photos or screenshots of the upcoming software.

Apple has released the first public betas of its upcoming iOS 13, iPadOS, macOS Catalina and tvOS 13, inviting users to sign up to the beta software program to report bugs and other issues with the latest operating systems.

The announcement comes three weeks following the tech giant’s Worldwide Developers Conference, in which it unveiled a suite of new features for its iPhones, iPads, Macbooks and the Apple TV.

Among the much anticipated features of the iOS 13 is the dark mode capability, which is a great use for places with low light and for people with high sensitivity to intense lighting. The new iOS version will also introduce “Sign in with Apple,” which Apple claims is a more secure way of logging in to apps instead of signing in with social accounts like Facebook and Google or filling out forms.

Apart from these two key features, the iOS 13 will also have a more curated Photos app, a new Maps experience that will show wider road coverage, a refreshed Reminders interface, a new Siri with a more natural voice, and a Face ID that is able to unlock up to 30% faster.

This year, iPads will also get their own operating system, called the iPadOS, which will basically have the same features like the iOS 13 including “Sign in with Apple” and dark mode, but will be specifically designed for a wider interface.

The two other operating systems included in the beta program is the macOS Catalina, the successor to macOS Mojave, as well as the new tvOS 13, which will now have a multiuser support, Apple Music integration, Apple Arcade integration, and more.

Under the Apple Beta Software Program, any Apple device user with an Apple ID can sign up for free to enroll their devices to access the public betas. A built-in Feedback Assistant app will be provided, where participants can provide their feedback directly to Apple.

Meanwhile, despite being called the “public” beta software, Apple restricts members of the program from blogging, posting screenshots or tweeting any information about the public beta software.
