Public Beta of iOS 10 Now Available for Download

Following this morning's announcement that it would be launching public betas for both iOS 10 and macOS Sierra, Apple has now released iOS 10 for members of the public beta testing program.

Subscribe to the MacRumors YouTube channel for more videos.

As we noted earlier, users interested in testing out iOS 10 should visit Apple's Beta Software Program website for more details and to register for the program. Once accepted into the program, users will be able to download a profile to install on their iOS devices that will enable them to receive the iOS 10 public beta. Make sure you first delete any iOS 9 public beta profiles you have installed and ensure you have a full, encrypted backup of your iOS 9.x device before upgrading in case you need to roll back from iOS 10.

Check out our iOS 10 roundup for details on what's new and follow along in our iOS 10 forum to discuss the changes.

Please post build number when done. Sometimes the PB is different than DP.


The developer and public beta build are both the same.

Removed public beta 9 profile, installed the new one, but it still shows the 9.3.3 Public Beta 5 in Updates...

Go to settings and storage and delete PB5.

Also make sure you restarted before installing the new one AFTER deleting the old.

Hello! I have the right profile and am enrolled with the public beta but can't download the update.. it downloads but right when it whittles to 0 seconds an error message pops up that says "Software Update Failed - An error occurred downloading iOS 10 Public Beta 1" . I've restarted, done a hard reset too. Does anyone have any ideas or workarounds? I'm dying to try ios10!
