Apple Seeds First Beta of iOS 10.1 to Developers

Apple today seeded the first beta of an upcoming iOS 10 update to developers, a little over a week after releasing iOS 10 to the public. iOS 10.1, as a major point update, will likely introduce bug fixes and perhaps bring a few new minor features to the operating system.

Registered developers can download the new iOS 10.1 beta from the Apple Developer Center. On Friday, Apple plans to make a public beta of iOS 10.1 available for public beta testers.

iOS 10.1 includes a new "Portrait" mode for the iPhone 7 Plus that allows it to use two cameras to create shallow depth of field portrait photos with blurred backgrounds.

iOS 10 has been described by Apple as the "biggest release ever" for iOS uses, with features that include a redesigned Lock screen, a Siri SDK to allow third-party apps to integrate with Siri, and a completely overhauled Messages app with stickers, a full App Store, Digital Touch, Bubble Effects, and more.

Other features include a dedicated "Home" app for HomeKit users, new facial and object recognition capabilities in Photos, and redesigned Maps and Apple Music apps.
