Apple Seeds Seventh Beta of iOS 10 to Developers and Public Beta Testers

Apple today seeded the seventh beta of iOS 10 to developers and public beta testers for testing purposes, just four days after releasing the sixth beta and more than two months after first unveiling the new operating system at its 2016 Worldwide Developers Conference. It is not clear what is included in beta 7, but given its unconventional release date, it may contain critical bug fixes.

iOS 10 beta 7 is available as an over-the-air download to those who installed the first six betas or the beta configuration profile and it's available for direct download via Apple's Developer Center (developers only).

iOS 10 is a major iOS update with a ton 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. According to Apple, iOS 10 is the company's biggest iOS update ever released.


The Messages app in iOS 10 has been overhauled with features that include background animations, bubble effects, Digital Touch, handwritten notes, Tapback replies, predictive emoji, and a dedicated App Store, and Photos has gained new facial and object recognition capabilities along with a Memories feature for rediscovering forgotten moments.

iOS 10 is currently available to developers and public beta testers, with a full public release planned for the fall. iOS 10 beta 7 is likely to be the final update before the golden master version is released. For full details on iOS 10, make sure to check out our iOS 10 roundup.

Dark mode?

Feel like this needs to be asked every time a new update is released.

And you're thinking that they confirmed the problem, found and coded the fixed, run the new code past internal testers, and queued it up for international rollout in the span of a few hours?
No smartass. Simply that he found the bug and reported it this morning. Now that there's a new beta, he'll be able to see if it is already fixed after he installs it, or if it's still there.

I'm sorry, but this is still a poor design.

You're telling me a 12.9" iPad Pro doesn't have enough screen real estate and requires scrolling text??

Also, the date isn't centered below the clock.

I just submitted a bug this morning regarding emails not coming through properly (both basic text emails and more complex html emails) - so hopefully this is something that gets fixed. I'll know in the next couple of minutes.
