Apple has made available for download iOS 10 beta 5, macOS Sierra beta 5, watchOS 3 beta 5, and tvOS 10 beta 5 for developers registered on Apple Developer Program.
Just a week after the release of beta 4 of iOS 10 for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices, watchOS 3 for Apple Watch, tvOS 10 for Apple TV 4, macOS Sierra for Macs seeded to both developers and public beta testers, Apple today released beta 5 seed.
iOS 10 beta 5
The fifth developer seed in iOS 10 beta cycle can be installed right now using the over-the-air (OTA) update method found under Settings > General > Software Update, or through restore mechanism via iTunes by downloading an IPSW file from developer.apple.com. What’s new in this release is still unknown, but we are in the process of installing it on compatible devices and report about new changes very soon. Given the fact that this beta 5 seed released near to iPhone 7 launch in just few weeks away from now.
While iOS 10 beta 5 and macOS Sierra beta 5 are ready for public beta testers, it’s only a matter of time before Apple makes it available to download for those registered on Apple Beta Software Program.
macOS Sierra beta 5
Like iOS 10, Apple is looking to finalize macOS Sierra soon, which by order means beta 5 is nothing more than a bug fixer and performance optimizer compared to beta 4 before it. Those of you who enrolled in Apple Developer Program can head to Mac App Store right now to download the update.
watchOS 3 beta 5
For Apple Watch, watchOS 3 beta 5 is now available to download as well. It brings with it a number of new features to give a new lease of life to the aging first-generation Apple Watch, beta 5 seed brings more under-the-hood enhancements than anything else before the final rollout to general public next month.
tvOS 10 beta 5
Like watchOS 3, macOS Sierra and iOS 10, tvOS 10 for Apple TV is also in final stages before the Gold Master (GM) release in September. Followed by a public release sometime later in the same month. As such, beta 5 is more of a bug fix release than anything before the final public release of the OS rollout to everyone this fall.
