Apple has made available for download iOS 10.1 beta 3 to registered developers and testers in Apple Developer and Beta Program, which only released a week after beta 2 for both were seeded. Here are the details.
Update: tvOS 10.0.1 beta 3 update also released alongside beta 3 of iOS 10.1. Just in, around a month after introducing iOS 10.0.x to the public.
For iPhone 7 Plus owners out there this new release of iOS 10.1 is predominantly focused on throwing, fine-tuning and getting the new Potrait mode perfect to those who can take advantage of Apple’s new dual-lens camera system.
As promised at Apple’s September 7 iPhone 7 event, this latest software update uses techniques to harness the power of new iPhone 7 Plus’ dual-lens camera module to capture stunning images with depth-of-field bokeh effect that have already only been available on DSLR cameras.
This feature may look very simple to use, but actually, it uses processing intelligence to decide exactly what parts of the photograph to blur based on distance from the focus object, which eventually could be a person, pet, or other type of thing.
Additionally, the latest beta focuses on improving the core stability of iOS 10.1 as well by introducing bug fixes where necessary and ensuring that the overall experience is as smooth as fluid as it can be. These bug fixes include issues that have already been found in previous version of iOS 10.1, alongside those issues that have been present ever since the launch of iOS 10.0.x back in September.
In general iOS 10.1 introduced support for Siri within third-party apps, and of course, brings a totally revamped messaging experience that includes full-screen and message effects in the native Messages app, and much, much more. There’s still a new notification system built by Apple from the ground to introduce a richer, more interactive system, among other inclusions.
Same as always, registered developers can grab iOS 10.1 beta 3 as an over-the-air download from Settings > General > Software Update section of iOS if a previous beta version is installed on the device, or if a beta configuration install profile is present as offered by Apple through the developer portal. Beta 3 IPSW file is also available to download directly from developer.apple.com for those who ant to install it manually using iTunes restore points as a fresh install.
Try the newly released tvoS 10.0.1 beta 3 for developers as well.
