The official version of iOS 13.6 GM is coming soon

Although Apple is focusing on the development of a new generation of operating systems such as iOS 14, iPadOS 14, but for the current iOS 13 has not given up. The latest iOS 13.6, iPadOS 13.6, watchOS 6.2.8 and tvOS 13.4.8 have entered GM (Golden Master). Among them, iOS and iPadOS 13.6 version code is 17G68, although it is only marked as Beta 4, but because the code no longer has English, it means that it is already the official GM version.

macOS has not yet entered GM

Apple Developer can download the latest version or update via OTA. Although it is Beta on the Apple Developer website, it can be determined to be the GM version. Note, however, that macOS Catalina 10.15.6 is still Beta 4 Build 19G71a, which is still not a real GM version from the perspective of the version.

iOS 13.6 Key new features

In addition to fixing the iOS issues, the new iOS 13.6 has an additional feature called Customize Automatic Updates. Users can customize the automatic background to download updates via WiFi, or choose to automatically install them at night. There have been many "disasters" in the new version of iOS recently. With this feature, users can choose not to download or update automatically.

In addition, the new Apple News+ will add the Audio function, but for local users has not yet been officially used. The CarKey function is also expected to be officially launched on iOS 13.6. Apple and BMW will soon allow users to use their iPhone as a BMW car key.

Expected to be officially released in July

Apple is used to entering the GM version before launching the official version. It is estimated that it will be officially pushed to all supported iOS devices within 2 weeks.
