Apple has just seeded the sixth beta of iOS 10 to developers and public beta testers for testing purposes, one week after seeding the fifth beta and more than two months after first unveiling the new operating system at its 2016 Worldwide Developers Conference.
This release for Apple’s mobile operating system, which will work on the iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch lineup, brings a whole host of new additions, from changes to the lock screen, to major tweaks to the way 3D Touch works, and even more sweeping changes to Messages.
Over the beta testing period, Apple is tweaking the features introduced in iOS 10 to refine them ahead of the public release of the operating system. In iOS 10 beta 5, Apple introduced a new lock sound and fixed some important bugs.
According to Apple’s release notes, iOS 10 beta 6 fixes a number of bugs. Search hints now function as expected in the Messages Store, Siri offers an appropriate response when a request requires a removed app, a bug that caused sticker pack apps to be blank has been fixed, and more. Reports from beta testers suggest an ongoing bug affecting the dock on iPads running iOS 10 has been resolved.
The sixth developer beta is available either through Apple’s dedicated site for developers, right here, or as an over-the-air (OTA) update on iOS devices that are running the previous beta.
