Apple on Tuesday released the third public beta of its upcoming iOS 10 operating system. The new beta comes two weeks after the release of the second public beta, and trails the fourth developer beta of the mobile operating system by just one day.
The beta is available as an over-the-air update on devices which are enrolled in the Apple public beta testing program, and which have the proper certificate installed on the device. (If you’re in the public beta testing program, you’ll know what that means.)
The third public beta of iOS 10 is likely identical to the third developer beta released on Monday. In that beta seed, Apple introduced features like new diverse emoji, revamped keyboard sounds, and more.
iOS 10 offers a number of new features and interface tweaks, including a new Lock Screen that includes 3D Touch-enabled notifications, a redesigned Control Center, and a new Widgets Screen. The Lock Screen also offers easier access to the Camera.
Other improvements include improved Messages, featuring handwritten notes, background animations, effects, new emoji, and an App Store for iMessage which will offer new stickers, animations and more for use in the Messages app.
iOS 10 is currently only available to developers and members of the Apple Public Beta Program. A public release of the new mobile operating system will be released in the fall, alongside the new iPhones.
