A couple of days ago, Apple rolled out the third iOS 10 developer beta. The company had said that the beta would first be concentrated towards developers who were paying $99 a year and a public release would follow later. The Cupertino giant announced today the roll out of the second iOS 10 public beta.
To be completely honest, I wouldn’t recommend installing the latest update on your primary device just yet. While the beta brings in too many many new features and a huge amount of bug fixes, it’s still far from stable. But then, thats how betas are. So yes, install @ your own risk.
There is a host of new features and updates the new public beta brings in tow. People loved the keyboard sound from first beta and so Apple has decided to keep it in place. We also get a new lock sound along with haptic feedback when you manually lock your device. There’s also a new clock in the status bar on widgets view along with the ability to send files to iCloud Drive from Safari and Mail. There are many other slight enhancements and updates here and there that define this new beta.
As we’d previously seen, iOS 10 will bring in many new features that will surely change the way people use their iDevices. The biggest updates that iOS 10 promises are Siri extensions and a revamped Messages app. Other important updates include a redesigned lock screen with tiny new live widgets, an enhanced Apple Music experience, a better Photos app with face recognition, deep learning categorization and intelligent photo albums. Apple Maps, Homekit and the Phone apps will also see slight changes.
The update will be compatible will iPhones starting from the fifth generation, the fourth generation iPad, all the iPad Minis and the iPod touch 6th generation.
With the final release of iOS 10 scheduled this Fall, most likely in September, Apple seems to be working double time on the software.
