Apple has issued the third beta version of iOS 16, macOS Ventura, and iPadOS 16. As usual, the public beta build is the same as the developer beta build released recently.

iPadOS 16 features Stage Manager, which is a new multitasking interface available to M1 equipped iPad users. iPadOS 16 also includes most features from iOS 16, minus the ability to customize the lock screen.
macOS Ventura includes Stage Manager with different multitasking approaches, a way to use iPhone as a webcam with Continuity Camera, improved search features in Mail app, scheduling emails in Mail app, the ability to edit sent iMessages, Weather app for Mac, Clock app for Mac, a redesigned System Preferences now called System Settings, and more.

macOS Ventura beta users in the public beta program will find the latest beta build in Apple menu > System Settings > Software Update.
