Apple continues its relentless path to have the new versions of the operating systems of the different devices of the company prepared and ready. Right now we have available the third beta of iOS, iPadOS, tvOS 16.4; macOS 13.3 and watchOS 9.4; If you want to download them, you already know that you must be registered as a developer in their specific program and from there, if the update has not come out automatically, you can always request it manually. On this occasion, the code that indicates that Apple wants to eliminate the NFC door opening system and replace it with UWB has been determined.
One of the best things that Apple has, among many others, are the constant updates to its operating system and updates, in addition, made symbiotically with the hardware. Normally the betas usually bring little news, beyond the correction of errors and that of the improvements of the software. On this occasion, Apple has already presented and launched and therefore the new versions of iOS, iPadOS, tvOS 16.4 can be downloaded; macOS 13.3 and watchOS 9.4; So if you are a developer, Do not expect much and download new versions. You already know that now you must enter and authenticate yourself with your Apple ID registered as such.
We have already seen how little by little quick security updates have been released. This implies that you can download the new versions without having to download the entire version. Something that is surely appreciated and a lot for the agility that this gives developers and in addition to the security it provides. It is not the same to download hundreds of megabytes than few.
There are quite a few news, which we already told you about last Tuesday. But it is also that in the code found in iOS 16.4 beta 3 by 9to5Mac it shows that Apple is eliminating NFC support, which means that only devices with technology Ultra Wideband (UWB) they will be able to lock, unlock and start cars in the future. That means you’ll need, at a minimum, an iPhone 11 or an Apple Watch Series 6 once NFC support has been removed, to use those features.
