Download iOS 10 Beta 1 For iPhone, iPad And iPod Touch [Compatibility]

Apple has finally made live of the download links of iOS 10 beta 1 for compatible iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices. The company has used the opening keynote of Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC 2016) to give us our first glimpse of iOS 10 firmware. Those registered on Apple’s Developer Program can go ahead and download the latest version of iOS beta seed for their supported devices right now. Apple’s Public Beta Program users will get iOS 10 in July.

New features and integrations to be offered with iOS 10, but also the devices and hardware that it will support. Apple is keen, want to get as many consumers as possible in on the latest firmware action, meaning that it does its very best to support as many devices as possible, both old and new, ditching support for iPhone 4s. Once again, as we saw with iOS 9, it looks as though it won’t disappoint.

Not only dies iOS 10 represent the future of what Apple is trying to achieve with its mobile platform, but also concentrating on a major release rather than continuing to push out major updates that introduce bug fixes and performance enhancements, but no actual user-facing changes for developers and testers to interact with.

This initial beta seed, being a part of iOS 10, Apple is getting its stall by dropping support for at least one older legacy device that hardware-wise are simply not capable of running this modern firmware in a performant enough fashion to even consider offering it as a download.

Owners of the 2011-released 4-inch iPhone 4s will no longer be able to consider themselves amongst those with a device that supports the latest firmware. With support for iPhone 4s being dropped, the list of iOS 10 compatible devices is still fairly comprehensive. Here’s a complete list of all the iOS 10 supported devices:

If your device listed above, then congratulations, but be mindful just because your hardware supports the installation of iOS 10, it doesn’t necessarily mean that every single new feature of iOS 10 will be available on that hardware as Apple restricts certain features based on hardware capabilities of the device.

Apple’s engineers will be working tirelessly to get iOS 10 ready for public consumption. The progression will include the seeding of multiple pre-release versions of the platform, which once again will go out to developers and registered testers.
