Apple Releases iOS 10 Golden Master for Public Beta Testers
Apple today released the golden master version of iOS 10 to public beta testers, nearly two weeks after releasing the seventh iOS 10 public beta and just a day after seeding the iOS 10 golden master to developers. The iOS 10 golden master represents the version of iOS 10 that will be provided to the public on Tuesday, September 13, should no additional bugs be discovered.
Beta testers who have signed up for Apple's beta testing program will receive the iOS 10 golden master 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.
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.
Apple will release iOS 10 next Tuesday, two days before the official launch date of the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus.
