Apple releases the third public beta of iOS/iPadOS 17.5, macOS 14.5, and watchOS 10.5


Today, Apple has released the third public beta of iOS 17.5 (build number 21F5063f), iPadOS 17.5, macOS 14.5, and watchOS 10.5. The content is consistent with yesterday’s Beta 3 update, inviting public beta users to experience it.

Developers can register for the beta by opening the “Settings” app, going to the “Software Update” section, clicking on the “Beta Software Update” option, and enabling the iOS 17 or iPadOS 17 developer beta for installation. Downloading and installing the beta require an Apple ID associated with a developer account.

The updates in the third public beta of iOS/iPadOS 17.5 are similar to previous versions. They include fixes for the accessibility feature AbleNet Hook+ Assistive and introduce new features to Core Motion. Additionally, a fix has been implemented for the issue in StoreKit where clicking on the “Terms of Service” button in SubscriptionStoreView caused a crash.

As previously reported, iOS 17.5 primarily makes adjustments for the European Union (EU) market and doesn’t introduce many new features globally. App developers in the EU region can now list iPhone apps on their websites for direct download by users, bypassing the App Store.

However, not all developers can utilize this feature. To offer app downloads on EU websites, developers need to meet specific criteria, such as being a member of the Apple Developer Program for at least two consecutive years and having over one million first-time iOS app installations in the EU region in the past year. Additionally, they must comply with Apple’s notarization process and disclose transparent data collection policies.
