Apple on Monday seeded iOS 10 Beta Seven to developers AND public beta testers for testing. The new seed comes just one four short days following the sixth beta release of Apple’s upcoming new operating system. Given its unusual, out of sync release, it could contain critical bug fixes.
Today’s new version is available as an over-the-air update to users who either have the sixth beta or the beta configuration profile installed on their devices. The update will also soon be available to developers via the Apple Development Center.
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 features, featuring handwritten notes, background animations, effects, new more diverse emoji, and an App Store for iMessage which will offer new stickers, animations and more for use in the Messages app.
iOS 10 beta seven is currently only available to developers and public beta testers. However, an official public release is due in the fall, alongside the debut of the new iPhones.
