Apple has just previewed iOS 10 at WWDC 2016. Craig Federighi, Apple’s senior vice president of Software Engineering said “iOS 10 is our biggest release ever, with delightful new ways to express yourself in Messages, a native app for Home automation, and beautifully redesigned apps for Music, Maps, and News that are more intuitive and more powerful, making everything you love about your iPhone and iPad even better,” “iOS 10 adds Siri intelligence into QuickType and Photos, automates your home with the new Home app and opens up Siri, Maps, Phone and Messages to developers — while increasing security and privacy with powerful technologies like Differential Privacy.”
The iOS 10 is now available for its Developer Program members to get the developer preview at developer.apple.com. The iOS 10 public beta download will be available to iOS users next month (July) at beta.apple.com. The public version of iOS 10 will be available this fall.
The iOS 10 public beta is currently available for download. You can join the Apple Beta Software Program at https://beta.apple.com/sp/betaprogram/ and download the beta version.
iOS 10 public beta will be available for download in few weeks after the official release of iOS 10 at 2016 WWDC event. iOS 10 is expected to arrive with new features and bug fixes, so downloading the iOS 10 public beta will let you preview new and interesting features of the new OS.
However, the beta version of iOS 10 still means beta where you may find some bugs, or may find some errors on your device. But you will also have a chance to try new features of iOS 10 and provide feedback before it goes into wide release.
If you want to download the iOS 10 beta then you will have to go through the iOS 10 public beta download and install process.
