It’s been a huge couple of weeks for Apple with the launch of the new iPhone 11 series, Apple Watch Series 5 and the barrage of big releases for its operating systems. From iOS 13 to macOS Catalina, it’s been update after update, major and minor alike.
As with any major OS release, there’s bound to be bugs and incompatibilities. Reports of things breaking and apps crashing aren’t uncommon. Following the release of iPadOS 13.2 Public beta 2 on Thursday, some 2018 iPad Pro owners have reported that the update failed to install properly, with several cases of bricked tablets.
I’ve been a little luckier. After downloading the iPadOS 13.2 Public beta 2 update yesterday, a system prompt showed “Unable to Verify Update” after I clicked on “Install Now.” The error was described as “iPad OS 13.2 Public beta 2 failed verification because you are no longer connected to the Internet.”
Thinking that it was somehow my wonky broadband connection, I double-checked Wi-Fi settings; even did the on/off Airplane Mode move. After several attempts with the same error, I restarted my iPad Pro to try again.
No luck, same error.
After another restart attempt, I ran Software Update again but to my surprise, I was pushed the iOS 13.2 Public beta update again. The update downloaded and installed without hitch.
However, iOS 13.2 Public beta 2 was nowhere to be found. Apple appears to have pulled the update completely. I’m assuming a bug-fixed version will appear soon enough.
Are you on iPad Pro and did you have problems with iOS 13.2 Public beta 2? Let me know in the comments below.
