Apple releases first round of beta versions of iOS/iPadOS 15.5, macOS 12.4, watchOS 8.6, tvOS 15.5.
There are couple of notable changes in new betas. There are references to Apple Classical music service focused on classical music. SportsKit references are also spotted. Apple Pay Cash in Messages is now rebranded as Apple Cash. iTunes Pass is now rebranded as Apple Balance in Wallet which might (or might not) mean that service will be available to more users soon.
