Apple had made available for download iOS 10.1 beta 1 to developers and testers in order to continue their progress in installing it on compatible iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices.
The first developer beta of iOS 10.1 release notes include two notable changes: a fix for motion handling and the Portrait bokeh feature for iPhone 7 Plus. With iOS 10.0.1 now in the hands of the general public, and being installed globally on compatible iPhone and iPad hardware, Apple has started the testing period all over again with the release of the first iOS 10.1 beta.
The Cupertino-based company has literally asked developers to test iOS 10.1 so soon after the initial release of iOS 10.0.1 to the public. More features, fixes and improvements are likely to be added as newer versions of the 10.1 update become available. Apple has used the recent iPhone 7 event to not only introduce its latest smartphones, but to also announce that a software update would be released to introduce in due course to elevate the iSight-Duo camera system onthe iPhone 7 Plus, by unlocking its depth-of-field and bokeh capabilities. iOS 10.1 does exactly that.
Bokeh is one that feature every iPhone 7 Plus owner is looking forward to. Apple is particularly keen for iPhone 7 Plus owners to get involved in the testing process, and to make sure the innovative dual-lens camera on the device, which offers a single telephoto lens as well as a wide-angle lens, is capable of getting the best of the new functionality.
Hope iPhone 7 Plus owners will instantly be able to capture stunning images with the highly capable DSLR device. In addition to offering this new and improved functionality, Apple has also introduced the obligatory bug fixes and performance enhancements that should make the iOS 10 experience a much better one across multiple device types and models.
iOS 10.1 looks to fix those issues at the same time as introducing the all-important camera enhancement for iPhone 7 Plus owners. Registered developers of Apple Developer Program can get their hands on the first beta of iS 10.1 right now on their supported iPhone, ipad or iPod touch by heading over to developer.apple.com.
If you already have Apple’s iOS OTA configuration profile installed, can simply head to Settings > General > Software Update on the device to grab the new update from there.
