Apple Releases Third Public Beta of iOS 10
Apple today released the third public beta of iOS 10 to public beta testers, two weeks after releasing the second iOS 10 public beta and just a day after seeding the fourth developer beta of iOS 10. The third public beta and the fourth developer beta are identical, offering features like new emoji, revamped keyboard sounds, and more.
Beta testers who have signed up for Apple's beta testing program will receive the third iOS 10 beta update over-the-air after installing the proper certificate on their iOS device.
Those who want to be a part of Apple's beta testing program can sign up to participate through the beta testing website, which gives users access to both iOS and OS X betas. The video below will walk you through the necessary steps for installing the iOS 10 beta to give the new features a try. Betas are not always stable and include many bugs, so they should be installed on a secondary device.
iOS 10 includes a huge number of new features and design tweaks, like a reimagined Lock screen experience, a revamped Messages app with background animations, bubble effects, Digital Touch, a full App Store and more, and a Photos app with impressive facial, scene, and object recognition capabilities.
There's a new Home app, apps like Maps and Apple Music have been redesigned, and there are hundreds of smaller tweaks and changes in the operating system, which we cover extensively in our iOS 10 roundup.
iOS 10 is available to developers and public beta testers at the current time, with a public release planned for the fall alongside new iOS devices.
