iOS 16 beta 8 is now available for all developers and public beta testers. This is the last beta release as the next release will match with the one available for all users. If you are already a developer, you may get this version by opening Settings and reaching General > Software Updates.
The latest beta comes with the Build number 20A5358a and you may confirm it after installing this on your iPhone. To confirm it, open Settings and proceed as follows General > About.
In this update, Apple has focused on bug fixes, and improving the general functionalities like battery life on your iPhone. So, you won’t see any new features available on your iPhone after you upgrade your device to this version. As the big event of the “iPhone 14” launch is near i.e.e on 7th Sept 2022, this will surely be the last beta version available for all developers.
Your device will continue to remain on the same build unless you manually downgrade to iOS 15 or upgrade to the iOS 16 public release.
Meanwhile, Apple has shifted its focus to iOS 16.1. They are basically working on bug fixes that currently enrolled beta testers face on their devices. As there will be separate releases of iOS 16 and iPadOS 16, iPad users have to wait until October 2022 to get the public release. This is an especially big year for iPadOS as special features are coming to iPad users.
