Apple just released iOS 10 beta 4 to developers. The launch comes just about two weeks after iOS 10 beta 3, and as Apple moves to the full release of iOS 10 to consumers likely when the iPhone 7 launches in September. Apple didn’t immediately explain what’s new in this version of the beta, but it typically squashes bugs and improves performance and it rolls toward the GM release and, ultimately, the final one.
iOS 10 has plenty of new features that consumers should be excited about, including new support for a widget-like interface on the lock screen and to the left of the home screen. It will also offer users tons of new iMessage features that make the experience more interactive and lively.
Apple typically releases its new public beta to consumers a day after it pushes out the developer beta, so folks participating in the iOS 10 consumer preview should expect it to land tomorrow.
Update: MacRumors reports there are more than 100 new emoji, many focused on promoting gender equality.
