How To Get Into The iPadOS Beta

It won’t be much longer until Apple finally pulls back the curtain on iPadOS, the very first operating system made specifically with the iPad in mind. It’s going to bring a lot of huge improvements to the iPad experience, and many can’t wait to get their hands on it. Some have the ability to do that early thanks to the beta, and this article will let you know how you can get into it.

If you have any interest in getting into the iPadOS beta that is currently ongoing, you need to sign up for Apple’s beta software program. Once you’ve done that you will get the iPadOS/iOS 13.1 beta over-the-air once you’ve installed the proper certificate on an iOS device. Signing up for this program will also give you access to macOS and tvOS betas, which is a great way to get try out new operating systems before they release officially.

Of course, as is the case with any beta testing program, you need to be very careful when testing this unfinished OS and must be aware of the risks. Considering that Apple is still tweaking this OS, there will undoubtedly be some bugs and some of them may be serious. Just to be safe, make sure you back up your current settings on your device in case something really bad happens and you need to restore. This is unlikely to happen, but it’s better to be safe than sorry.

An official release date has not yet been announced for this OS, with Apple simply saying that it will come this fall. However, it is very likely that the company will release the new OS shortly after the release of their new product launches, which will happen in just a couple of weeks. We’ll keep you updated as more information becomes available.

One of Apple’s top mini-LED suppliers claims that while the company plans to switch to OLED displays for its iPad and MacBook line in the upcoming years, demand for displays in consumer products is declining while demand for mini-LED in other applications is increasing.

According to a recent report from DigiTimes, the demand for mini-LED displays for consumer electronics devices is declining, but it is anticipated that demand for mini-LED displays for dashboards and vehicle displays will increase in 2023. Epistar, which has been supplying mini-LED displays to Apple for some time, is one company that has made this claim.

The creation of particular kinds of OLED screens that Apple intends to utilize in next iPad Pro models, according to a report published last week, is now Samsung’s top priority. The first iPad Pro with an OLED panel, which Apple is rumored to introduce in 2024, has prompted mini-LED vendors to consider alternate applications for their screens, according to DigiTimes.

In 2024, Apple is also expected to release a 13-inch MacBook Air with an OLED display in addition to an OLED iPad Pro. According to reputable display analyst Ross Young, Apple is exploring adopting an OLED panel in a planned update to the iPhone SE but is torn between employing an LCD or OLED display.

Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple, is traveling to Washington, D.C., to meet with Republican lawmakers who will probably lead committees that regulate the tech sector.
Republican representatives Jim Jordan of Ohio, Darrel Issa of California, and Cathy McMorris Rogers of Washington are among those with whom Cook has booked meetings.

The meetings were probably planned several weeks, if not months, beforehand. Top conservatives have criticized Apple since the beginning, and many of them have joined with Twitter CEO Elon Musk in their recent dispute with Apple.

Jordan has publicly expressed his support for Elon Musk, as Bloomberg notes.

When the GOP wins over the House in 2023, Jordan is also set to serve as chair of the House Judiciary Committee. The House Energy and Commerce Committee’s chairman is most likely to be McMorris Rodgers.

They both will play a key role in developing the GOP’s technology policy agenda for 2023.

What is particularly on the agenda is unclear. Even when he is not called to testify about big tech, Cook travels to Washington, DC, on several occasions each year.
