Biggest change I see in iOS 10, beta 2, is that the App Store now updates apps with multiple AppleID's without having to logout/in over & over.

As a developer, I use multiple accounts to access the stores in different countries (some clients only release their apps to the US store, others only to the Canadian store). Now, all of them will just update, even ones for accounts I'm not currently signed in with!

Thanks for this update. The video was informative, but could you please find somebody to do the voiceover at a normal human speed rather than jabbering away like a tobacco auctioneer? I missed about two thirds of what the guy had to say. I wouldn't have minded at all if the video had taken a bit longer to watch.

Holy moly the iOS interface is starting to become bloated. If the system doesn't get an overhaul by 11 or 12, and doesn't get rid of the very aging multi icon home screen, it's gonna become very messy with all the stuff they're trying to shove into the notification center.
