Apple has made available iOS 10 betA 8, iOS 10 public beta 7, and tvOS 10 beta 7 download for registered developers and testers, instead of iOS 10 GM (Gold Master). This pre-release seed released one week after rolling out beta 7 and public beta 6 builds of iOS 10 and two weeks after seeding tvOS 10 beta 6.
Today’s updates however relect the company’s urge to stabilize both platforms of what will likely be an official public launch next month. Impressive to witness how far both the Apple TV and iOS mobile operating systems have come since they were originally introduced at this year’s Apple Worldwide Developer Conference just past two months ago.
iOS 10 Developer Beta 8 / Public Beta 7
The latest update focuses on stabilization of the platform and it seems to be on the right track for a pubic launch in the coming weeks. iOS 10 represents one of the biggest updates ever since to the iOS platform, bringing with it big changes to certain parts of the system experience, such as Messages, Maps, and Photos.
It’s likely that iOS 10 beta 8 will be the last release before a Golden Master seed is provided to testers. Could be released alongside the September-bound iPhone 7 next month.
The latest beta of iOS 10 can be downloaded and installed on your compatible iPhone, iPad or iPod touch devices, gone live for developers and registered public testers, is available to grab over-the-air (OTA). Both developers and testers can access this update by going to Settings > General > Software Update. For those trying to install iOS 10 for the first time, need to head over to developer.apple.com or beta.apple.com to get started with Apple’s iOS betas.
tvOS 10 Beta 7
This next-generation platform version for Apple TV focuses on bringing additional power to tvOS 10 with improvements to Siri, an ability to directly manage HomeKit accessories, and the much-loved Dark Mode that most consumers are anticipated of, among other things.
This latest version of tvOS 10 developer beta doesn’t introduce anything that heart-shattering for user interface, and only focuses on under-the-hood improvements and performance enhancements as Apple gets closer to a public release. Anyone with a fourth-gen Apple TV and a previous beta version installed on the set-top box will be able to get this latest update over-the-air directly from the Settings menu on the hardware.
