The great iOS beta break is over. After waiting 28 days, Apple finally sowed the second developer beta for iOS 13.3.1 Tuesday, January 14. Fortunately for us public beta testers, we didn't have to wait long to get our version of the beta, because Apple has just released 13.3.1 public beta 2.
Apple has posted this second 13.3.1 public beta at 4:00 pm EST (1:00 pm PST), just three hours after the release of 13.3.1 dev beta 2. Apple almost always leaves the developer version of a beta before the public version usually around 1 p.m. EST (10 hours PST), but the release time for a public beta can vary. Apple often follows up the same day with a prompt 1
Although a new beta update is always exciting, you might find public beta 2 not waiting that long. Not much has changed here, at least on the surface. If there are fixes and patches under the hood, Apple won't tell us, because the release notes clearly state: "There are no release notes for this software update:"
