Apple rolled out the latest developer betas for iOS 13.4 and iPadOS 13.4 on Tuesday. The past four betas have all dropped exactly a week apart from one another, as Apple seems to be tying up loose ends before iOS 14 arrives this summer. In case you haven’t been keeping up, an early version of iOS 14 or an iOS 14 beta appears to have leaked in recent days, as leaks have been popping up almost hourly spoiling new features and functionality.

In the meantime, if you have a developer account, you can check out all the additions Apple is making in what will likely be the final numbered update for iOS 13 before it is usurped by iOS 14 in June. Some of those features include iCloud folder sharing, new Memojis, and the ability to bundle iOS and Mac apps.

iOS 13.4 beta 5 was released alongside Apple’s corresponding iPad software update for developers, iPadOS 13.4 beta 5. We can also expect new versions of Apple’s public iOS betas to follow shortly.
