Apple just released iOS 10 beta 3 to developers for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. iOS 10, in case you haven’t been following along, is the latest major mobile software that Apple will release to consumers this fall, likely in tandem with the launch of the iPhone 7. It has been slowly moving through developer betas and, as of two weeks ago, is also available in public beta form.
iOS 10 beta 2 included bug fixes and performance improvements, and the latest beta is almost certainly building on that. We’ll let you know about additional features if any surface. As someone who used iOS 10 beta 1, the bug fixes alone are welcome news, especially considering I found it nearly unusable at points. The beta does included many of the major new features in iOS 10, including a revamped News app, a brand new version of iMessage with interactive options, new widgets on the home and lock screens (swipe left from home), and more. For a closer look, be sure to check out our iOS 10 hands-on.
Developers should find iOS 10 beta 3 now, public beta testers should expect an update soon – likely tomorrow or in the next couple of days.
