Apple Seeds Third Beta of iOS 10 to Developers

Apple today released the third beta of iOS 10 to developers for testing purposes, two weeks after seeding the second beta and more than a month after first unveiling the new operating system at its 2016 Worldwide Developers Conference.

Today's update is available as an over-the-air download to those who installed the first beta or the beta configuration profile and it's available for direct download through the Apple Developer Center.

iOS 10 is a major iOS update with a host of new features and design tweaks, including a new Lock screen experience with 3D Touch-enabled notifications, a more easily accessible camera, a redesigned Control Center, and a new widgets screen.

Messages has been entirely overhauled with features that include background animations, bubble effects, Digital Touch, handwritten notes, Tapback replies, predictive emoji, and its own dedicated App Store, and Photos has gained impressive facial and object recognition capabilities along with a Memories feature for rediscovering forgotten moments.

Over the beta testing period, Apple will tweak the features introduced in iOS 10, and in iOS 10 beta 2, Apple launched the Messages App Store and added organ donation signup functionality, among other changes. New changes in beta three will be listed below.

iOS 10 is currently available to developers and public beta testers, with a full public release planned for the fall. For full details on iOS 10, make sure to check out our iOS 10 roundup, and for details on what's new in beta 3, make sure to take a look at our dedicated tidbits post.

Apple gave us an option to either use the new unlock method with TouchID, or keep the old way of resting your finger. Bam, perfect.

Those who were complaining about blasting past the lock screen too fast can now be satisfied along with those who were complaining about having to press the home button twice to unlock. Really, this is pretty significant.

They won't give us dark mode like that, in a beta. They will have to introduce it like a magical new revolutionary thing in a keynote, and then they'll release it.


didn't they add nightshift during a beta

This is the Ios 10 beta 3 forum not Pokemon, lets stay on topic great job moderators



I know a great surgeon who can take care of that stick lodged firmly up your bum mate. LOL J/K.

Seriously though, it would be one thing if people were randomly spamming but this is much the same as any bit of pop culture. Like saying I sure hope music player is fixed so I can listen to Miley Cyrus uninterupted LOL
