Apple releases seventh beta of iOS 10 for developers and public testers
Aug 24 2016
The latest release of the iOS 10 beta could signal the sign that Apple is nearly ready to launch the final mobile operating to the public very soon. The iPhone 7 is expected to come with the iOS 10 right out of the box so the two could be forthcoming in the weeks to come.
This is the seventh beta the developer rolls out to both public testers and developers. This time although the iPhone 7 issue is not very clear yet, Apple has been quiet liberal on releasing the iOS 10 beta version to the public already so that they can volunteer for testing as well. Although the exact scope of the integration is yet to be unveiled since third-party developers have yet to release iOS 10 apps yet, many tech experts are expecting the feature to have a big impact on the way users use their iPhone.
The update can be installed by running the Software Update feature in Settings. Though just a single digit behind the developer beta, the public beta is actually the same version of the software. Swift Playgrounds Beta 7 contains Learn to Code Part 1 and Part 2. To install this beta release, users will require having their iPhone or iPad connected to a power source, or the device must have a minimum of 50 percent battery life. However, details are scarce as third-party developers for Apple have not yet released their apps for the iOS 10 yet.
It was at the recently concluded WWDC event when Apple announced the anticipated iOS 10. Cupertino has redrawn the lock screen to make it simple for users to find their way among rich notifications that display small live widgets.
Apple Music, HomeKit, Apple Maps, and the Phone app are also receiving major updates, although the exact scope of these update are yet to be confirmed.
The official version of the much awaited iOS 10 is expected to hit the large consumer base in September, and until the day comes we must rely on a bit of patience. It is rumored that the company's iPhone 7 line will be released by September 7.
