Apple Rolls Out First iOS 16.6 beta Update

The US-based tech giant Apple has launched the first beta of iOS 16.6 and iPadOS 16.6 for developers ahead of its annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) next month. This latest beta update introduces several new features, including iMessage Contact Key Verification, aimed at providing enhanced security for Apple users.

While it is uncertain if the iMessage Contact Key Verification feature is fully functional in the initial beta release, there is now a setting available in the Settings app for iMessage Contact Key Verification, MacRumors reported. iMessage Contact Key is specifically designed to protect Apple users facing severe digital threats.
