Apple has just seeded the eighth beta of iOS 10 to developers and a seventh version to public beta testers for testing purposes, one week after releasing the seventh developer beta and more than two months after first unveiling the new operating system at its 2016 Worldwide Developers Conference.
iOS 10 is a major iOS update with a ton of new features and design tweaks, including a new Lock screen experience with 3D Touch-enabled notifications, a more easily accessible camera, a redesigned Control Center, and a new widgets screen. According to Apple, iOS 10 is the company’s biggest iOS update ever released.
With the release of the eighth developer beta, Apple has also streamlined its release of the public beta, which also saw the release of the seventh public beta to public beta testers. This public beta matches the developer beta release in features.
Developers can download the full iOS 10 beta 8 installer via Apple’s Dev Center. Speaking of new betas, Apple also released tvOS 10 beta 7 today.
iOS 10 is currently available to developers and public beta testers, with a full public release planned for the fall. iOS 10 beta 8 is likely to be the last update before the golden master version is released as Apple will need time to finalize the software before its public launch.
