Apple has today made available of beta seeds of its big operating systems, with both iOS 10 and macOS Sierra receiving new public betas. For those members of the public beta software program, wish to get their hands on the latest software but aren’t too concerned about the bugs and issues it might bring with it. Released the fifth developer preview of the same software (iOS 10 beta 5 and macOS Sierra beta 5), these two new public betas are now gone live via the usual methods; the Mac App Store for macOS Sierra and the Software Update portion of the Settings app on both the iPhone and the iPad, to be exact builds coming out of two different testing purposes.
With new releases, such as this one from today, beta or public or otherwise. generally include bug fixes and improvements to new functionality introduced in previous versions of betas. Apple’s beta updates have been widely known to muddy the waters in the past, with the company even having to remove a beta update from its servers once ago. Not all betas releases are better than they have been replaced to, although iOS 10, specially, has been one of the best beta releases by Apple in terms of stability and performance.
Expectd to ship both iOS 10 and macOS Sierra at some point during September next month, with iOS 10 in particular strongly believed to be ready for a release alongside, or slightly before, the iPhone 7 going on sale.
New iPhone 7 handsets will definitely ship with iOS 10 pre-installed, so the update will be ready for primetime for those using older devices. Previous launches have also followed the same pattern, in fact and does.
Both iOS 10 and macOS Sierra closing in on final stages, the Apple TV and Apple Watch are also moving towards a completed buold that will be made available to the ultimate audience next month.
