Apple releases first public betas

by Volker Weber


I am not going to endanger my iPhone, but I am pretty pumped about iPadOS. If all else fails, I can just switch to a different machine.

Catalina DP2 (one week ago) is slightly less stable than System 7 running a collection of the worst-behaved Desk Accessories (assuming one can get the installer to work, which is far from a given).

There has, so far, been no updated developer preview release - extreme caution advised when trying today's Catalina release.

Thanks for the heads up, David.

@David: Zap the PRAM, rebuild the Desktop database and try again after removing the ZIP drive from external SCSI port.

@Martin: Doh!!! It's a missing SCSI terminator!

I know what I'll be doing tonight (iPad OS only - probably...)

I think iPad is public beta bricked my 10,5 iPad. I will post updates. But right now it seems to be caught in a boot loop. :)

*I think I bricked my iPad with the public beta. No clue why the sentence above turned out the way it did. :)

Johannes Matzke, 2019-06-25

You should be able to restore the iPad from the PC with a restore image.

Volker Weber, 2019-06-25

Yes. I figured that. I will do that as soon as I am back home.

Johannes Matzke, 2019-06-25

@Dave: "Tourist!"

Martin Kautz, 2019-06-25

Not home yet. Expect feedback at around 9pm

Johannes Matzke, 2019-06-25

Well, it is in recovery mode. I tried "update" first...lets see, what happens.

Johannes Matzke, 2019-06-25

Widerherstellen auf 12.3.1 hat funktioniert. auf das saubere ios 12 hat dann auch die beta funktioniert.

Johannes Matzke, 2019-06-25

iPad OS 13 on first gen iPad Pro 12.9": It just worked (tm)

"Another one bricked the (i)Pad"
iPad Pro 10,5" durchläuft jetzt erstmal einen restore.

Marco Schirmer, 2019-06-26

Och, jetzt wo es drauf ist, läuft es gut. Habe noch keine schlimmen Bugs gefunden.

Johannes Matzke, 2019-06-26

Dann hast Du noch nicht viel gemacht. iA Writer, superwichtig für mich, ist noch nicht mal gestartet.

Volker Weber, 2019-06-26

Stimmt. Ich habe auch kaum was installiert, Ich musste ja alles löschen. :)

Johannes Matzke, 2019-06-26

Also, auf dem 10,5er iPad startet ai writer. Weitere Tests habe ich nicht unternommen.
