Apple has reached the fourth round of developer betas for iOS 15.1, iPadOS 15.1, tvOS 15.1, and watchOS 8.1, with new builds available for download and testing.

The new builds can be acquired by developers in the beta as an over-the-air update on devices already enrolled into the program, or through the Apple Developer Center. Public beta variants of each operating system normally surface shortly after the developer betas, and can be accessed from the Apple Beta Software Program website.

The fourth builds follow after the third, which arrived on October 6, the second from September 28, and the first from September 21.

The new betas of iOS and iPadOS are denoted as build number 19B5068a.

The first build of iOS 15.1 reintroduced features that were missing from the iOS 15 release, such as SharePlay. One major new feature also surfaced, with users able to add verifiable COVID vaccination cards to Wallet.

AppleInsider, and Apple itself, strongly recommend users don't install the betas on to what they could describe as "mission-critical" or primary hardware, as there is the small possibility of data loss or other problems. Instead, testers should install betas onto secondary or non-essential devices, and to ensure there are sufficient backups of data before updating.

Update 4:48 p.m. Eastern: Apple has released the latest beta builds to public software testers.

A researcher claimed to find a remote code execution exploit that could allow an attacker to wipe an iPhone or iPad running all iOS versions up to iOS 15 — but Apple says the claim is bogus.

Apple has published a new research paper taking a deep dive into some of the security and privacy risks of side-loading, or obtaining apps outside of the App Store.

Google Stadia players can now use their fingers to pinch, swipe, and tap to control games on iPhone and iPad instead of relying on a virtual controller on-screen.

There are a slew of new features for AirPods Pro and AirPods Max in the Find My app, including left-behind alerts, community finding, and pairing lock. Here's how to use them all.

The Apple Watch lineup is as expansive as ever, with a multitude of models available for users, including the new Apple Watch Series 7. To make things easier, we'll tell you exactly which Apple Watch you should buy among all models of the Series 7, the still-available Series 3, and the Apple Watch SE.

Now that both the iPhone 12 lineup and the newly-released iPhone 13 lineup support MagSafe, in-car mounts using the technology have risen in popularity. We took four of the most popular ones and subjected them to an impact test to see which ones held our phones safe.

Apple's new iPad mini is striking because of its redesign and refined features, but there are still areas Apple could have worked on. Here's where Apple could have made even more improvements to the compact tablet.

Apple specifically mentioned pilots when it released the 2021 iPad mini, so we interviewed 35-year aviator Scott Oglesby to learn more about its usefulness in the cockpit.

Wireless CarPlay is clearly superior to needing to plug your phone in each and every time you enter the car, but most auto manufacturers have been slow on the uptake. This is where aftermarket solutions like the Intellidash Pro come into play.

Nomad has a new lineup of cases for iPhone 13 that includes new Sport Cases alongside the usual leather versions, but they all contain a cool feature that relies on NFC.

The 24-inch Apple Silicon iMac is an excellent machine, with a shortage of ports overall, and none on the front. Hyper has a solution to both problems with the HyperDrive iMac Hub.

This year's iPhone 13 isn't revolutionary, but it will wind up as the most popular iPhone 13 model.

Nomad's updated Base Station Mini now has a built in magnet array to allow iPhone 12 or iPhone 13 models to automatically align themselves for optimal charging performance.

No. 7 Penn State hoping to get backup QB Roberson going

Centre Daily Times 14 October, 2021 - 07:10am

There it is! I had a gut feeling the news might be coming out on today’s baseball off day, and here it is. The Chicago Cubs will soon have a General Manager.

President Jed Hoyer is going with Cleveland Assistant GM Carter Hawkins, per Britt Ghiroli, Sahadev Sharma, and Patrick Mooney:

NEWS: The Cubs are finalizing a deal to make Cleveland AGM Carter Hawkins their new GM, sources tell me, @sahadevsharma & @PJ_Mooney: https://t.co/puNVzw3gJn

— Britt Ghiroli (@Britt_Ghiroli) October 13, 2021

Read the article for the full scoop, but the short version is that Hoyer was targeting rising candidates in organizations with significant success in scouting and player development, and Hawkins has been with the Cleveland Indians for the past 14 seasons. They have obviously been quite good at the scouting and player development thing, particularly on the pitching side.

Hawkins, 37, began his front office career on the scouting side (following his time playing at Vanderbilt), eventually moving into player development, then becoming the Director of Player Development in 2014, and then an Assistant GM in 2016. He’s young, but he’s been doing this at a high level for a long time in an organization that consistently has success in a critical aspect of organization building.

We’ll dig in more on Hawkins soon, when things become a little more official, but broadly speaking, you wanted to see someone from outside the Cubs organization, who was in an organization that has a lot of success with scouting and player development. Boxes checked. Now to find out more on the potential new number two in the Cubs organization.

Penn State Football: No Update Regarding Clifford Health, Although Program Appears Optimistic

State College News 14 October, 2021 - 07:10am

Prior to Franklin speaking with reporters Clifford was not seen working on the field with his fellow quarterbacks during the open portion of Wednesday’s practice.

“It’s part of the game, right?” Franklin said when asked about Clifford. “Sean’s had [health] issues in the past. He’s doing everything he possibly can to get back as soon as he possibly can and go from there. What he’s dealing with is not uncommon at the quarterback position.”

Clifford went down midway through the second quarter during Penn State’s eventual 23-20 loss to Iowa this past Saturday and did not return to the game. The three-year starter could be seen walking the sideline in street clothes but had no visible wrappings or bandages. Clifford was not knocked out of the game during the run of play but appeared to be injured following a hit during a Nittany Lion second quarter drive.

In his absence Penn State turned to backup Ta’Quan Roberson who struggled greatly going just 7-for-21 while throwing two interceptions. Penn State would score just three points in the second half under Roberson’s watch as the sophomore got his most meaningful playing time of his Nittany Lion tenure.

Generally speaking Franklin does not address player injuries or return timelines unless a player is out for the remainder of the season. Such was the case on Wednesday as Franklin announced that defensive tackle PJ Mustipher will miss the remainder of the year after sustaining an injury on the first defensive drive of the game this past Saturday against Iowa.

The good news for Penn State, the Nittany Lions currently have nine more days before facing Illinois at Beaver Stadium and an additional week following that game before a trip to Columbus to face Ohio State. All told Clifford would have a total of 20 days between sustaining his injury and facing the Buckeyes if Penn State is optimistic about his eventual return. Despite Roberson’s issues, Penn State could very well sneak past the Illini if need be without Clifford’s services.

The injury marks the second year during which Clifford has missed time with injury, the three-year starter sat for the majority of the Nittany Lions’ loss to Ohio State in 2019 and did not play the following week against Rutgers. In turn now Kentucky starting quarterback Will Levis started in Clifford’s place.

All told the Nittany Lions have now played their backup quarterback for meaningful snaps in meaningful games in four straight seasons dating back to the 2018 campaign when both Tommy Stevens and Sean Clifford saw time in place of injured Trace McSorley.
