Apple has made available to download iOS 10 public beta 2 for users registered on Apple’s Beta Software Program to install on their compatible iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices.
Two weeks after releasing the first public beta of iOS 10 and just after pushing out the third iOS 10 developer beta, today, Apple released the second iOS 10 public beta. For those have chosen to be a part of the iOS beta experience can now take advantage of all of the latest improvements and additions that have been bundled into this latest pre-release build.
Speaking of iOS 10 beta 3 for developers, today’s public beta 2 build is exact same seed which was released as beta 3 to devs earlier this week. With beta 3 of iOS 10 have already been rolled to registered developers, testing is underway, bugs are already being reported back to Apple, and a slew of upcoming third-party apps are being tested against the platform to ensure ongoing compatibility.
Betas are not stable anyway and include several bugs, so they should be installed on a spare of secondary device. Availability on a public level to registered public beta testers means that Apple will have a larger army of testers to put iOS 10 beta 3/public beta 2 through all its paces now, which will likely result in the reporting and ultimate redirection of the majority of bugs as we streamroll toward a final launch later in the year.
The launch of a new beta version of iOS 10 extremely means that there are a number of new changes, enhancements, and additions for testers too. There’s what we found inside the iOS 10 beta 2 is now more than just an empty Settings option, while the “Rest Finger to Unlock” feature made its appearance, meaning that testers can actually enable it and use that inclusion to unlock a device via Touch ID.
The fact here is that really showing off is that Siri is now available to third-party developers via the new Siri SDK. As of Apple’s iOS 10 beta 3/public beta 2, the Settings > Siri preferences now contains an App Support section that outlines the 3rd-party apps that have been built to support and make use of the Siri digital assistant. Also shows the apps that are able to access any data that goes through Siri. Quick Actions via 3D Touch have been updated in beta 3/public beta 2 with additional clearance. There are a few other notable additions into iOS 10 beta3/public beta 2.
If you already running the previous public beta of iOS 10, you can simply head over to Settings > General > Software Update to download and install this latest iteration.
