Developers got to see Apple Inc. unveil its upcoming iOS 10 platform at its WWDC event some weeks back. A few beta versions have been released to the public since then. The U.S. tech company is in the process of ironing out the kinks in its new operating system and working tirelessly at it too. The beginning of this week saw the release of the 4th beta version of iOS 10.
Apple polishes iOS 10
The completed software should become available soon after Apple’s Fall unveilings. iOS 10 Will be the mobile operating platform that accompanies this year’s edition of Apple’s flagship product — the iPhone 7. Apple fans are looking forward to at least two releases within the next two months. Beyond this year’s iPhone, a new Watch is expected to debut as well. The firm is expected by some to call it the Apple Watch S.
The release of iOS 10 beta brings iPhone fans that much closer to witnessing the workings of this year’s new iPhone. The device is well under 6 weeks away, according to sources. However, the product itself has been described as a pretty mild upgrade. Rumors suggest that nothing too impressive will come along this year. In terms of the gadget’s software though, it stands to be Apple’s most forward-thinking and effective handset platform yet. It should make problems like lag and resolutions shifts a thing of the past on the iPhone.
New to iOS
iOS 10 comes with a heap of new features and innovations. Redesigns were made to a lot of the native apps. Not excluded were the likes of the Music and News tool. It offers the first Home app for Apple’s HomeKit. iMessage has been crammed with loads of new qualities too. Even the lock screen gets a bit of revamp while 3D Touch comes to the fore when it comes to widget use and the way users get to interact with their notifications.
iOS 3 seemed nearly flawless judging from reviews. It ushered in some changes to the Activity and Health tools. The Taptic Engine acts a lot differently while a bit more was tweaked with Siri.
Those keen on getting on trying out the beta versions of iOS 10 on their current iPhones and iPads can do so with ease. Simply find the Update section of your device’s Settings and use the OTA upgrade. Developers can get more hands-on through Apple Inc.’s developers portal. iOS 10 beta 4 should be available for normal iPhone users to try out within the next several days.
