Apple regularly releases updates to enhance the user experience by fixing bugs, improving features and making refinements. But before the updates are pushed out for the public, they are first released to the beta community which tests the new features and improvements for performance and stability. Apple recently rolled iOS 16.5 Beta 1 which brought out several new features along with important bug fixes. Apple has now rolled out iOS 16.5 Beta 2 for registered Apple Beta developers.

It was reported a few days ago that although the iOS 16.4 update introduced several new features, it also brought along a few bugs which are hampering the iPhone usage experience which were rectified by iOS 16.4.1. The release of iOS 16.5 Beta 2 is an indication that Apple could be working on several other fixes before the big iOS 17 update which will be revealed at Apple's WWDC 2023.
