iPadOS 13 iOS 13

The second round of beta testing for iOS 13.1 and iPad OS 13.1 is live now, though currently they require that you have a developer account in order to do so. However, we have a way for you to access this beta without having one, and we’ll detail how you can do just that in this article.

Before we get anywhere, we strongly urge that you back up all of your data. You can do this with either iCloud or iTunes, and doing so will allow you to restore your device to a previous version if anything goes terribly wrong while accessing the beta. Considering that there inevitably is going to be bugs, it’s better to be safe than sorry.

Now that you’ve got your data backed up, go ahead and download this profile to your iPhone or iPad depending on which beta you want to access. Once it is installed you will need to restart your device, which will allow you to access the beta. Once you’ve rebooted you need to go settings > general > software update and you’ll see that beta 2 is available for download. Once the download is finished you will officially be in either the iPadOS 13.1 beta or the iOS 13.1 beta.

If you don’t feel like downloading the beta and would rather just wait for the official release, you don’t have much longer to wait. Apple will be holding their reveal event for their new devices later this month, and the new OS for both devices will be going live right around that time.

Despite popular belief, PS4 sales in the UK skyrocketed last year

PS4 sales in the UK climbed by a shocking 633 percent year-over-year in 2023, so apparently the old system isn’t dead yet. The previous year’s very limited supply of the system is likely a major factor in this figure, since the console’s lifespan was drastically reduced because of chip shortages caused by the pandemic. Still, it’s proof that PlayStation’s original platform has unmet demand.

With the very low prices of PS4 software (both in-store and online at the PS Store), this strategy makes a lot of sense. Plus, it’s future-proof, so there’s no harm in stocking up on PS4s while new-gen pricing is still high, since if you decide to switch to a PS5 in the future, you can transfer all of your purchases across. Not to mention that the majority of new releases still come out on the PS4, with several offering free PS5 upgrades.

While the percentage rise may seem huge, real PS4 sales will probably be much lower. It’s a sign that the gadget, which is now a decade old, isn’t completely dead yet, and we expect it to keep receiving maintenance for a while longer. Of course, this is great news for Sony, because the company would rather have PS4 players playing on its last-gen gadget than none at all, even if it would love to have them upgrade to PS5.

A PS5 firmware update on a cold winter morning is unmatched. The latest PS5 system software update is 23.02–08.40.00 from Sony. Does this one add useful features or just boost system performance?

Though closer to the latter, it’s more than Sony’s favorite patch note. It fixes security issues, improves messages and usability, and boosts system software performance. Official patch notes for this 1.185GB update:

  • We updated system software security
  • We improved system software stability and performance
  • Some screens now have better messages and usability

That’s it. PS5 gets another win to recover from its midweek slump. Do you share our enthusiasm for this firmware update? Comment below. To spice things up, make your comment rhyme.

Belgian developer Larian Studios’ work on Baldur’s Gate 3’s Xbox Series S version will improve performance on all platforms, including PS5. The game’s fifth major patch, expected to launch this week, will include upgrades and new features. More details will be revealed later today.

Director of Publishing Michael Douse says PS5 performance improvements may be the “least exciting thing” in the title’s next update, so it sounds like a big one. Larian Studios employees are proud of “finally” implementing tweaks, fixes, and changes, Douse says. Later today, we’ll bring you all the Baldur’s Gate 3 update details.

Those who reached the RPG’s third act have reported technical issues during the narrative’s conclusion, especially in co-op, so today’s update should fix them. New features like a permadeath mode are expected, along with Xbox Series S optimization fixes. What else should be added to the game?
