Features and changes are not usually outlined in patch notes- developers will have to explore and find them out themselves as they try the operating system. Both betas have the build number 20G5047d, with the previous number being 20G5037d. It’s believed that iOS 16.6 and iPadOS 16.6 will have the iMessage Contact Key Verification for protection against spyware and similar threats.
