Apple just released the third beta for the next major iteration of iOS, macOS, tvOS and watchOS — that’s a lot of megabytes. The third public betas squash bugs and tweak new features as the final versions of these operating system updates will be released in the fall.
If you can’t wait to see iOS 10 in action, Apple’s public beta program is for you. The company wants you to try out its new operating system before releasing it in the fall.
Remember, you shouldn’t install these beta versions on your primary phone, iPad, Mac or Apple TV. Things will break and it’s hard to revert to the current stable version. It’s a beta after all. Before updating, make sure your iCloud backup is up to date by going to the Settings app on your iPhone or iPad, or plug your iOS device to your computer to do a manual backup in iTunes. Use Time Machine on your Mac.
So you might be wondering what’s new in iOS 10? iOS is receiving a massive update with a much more powerful Siri, a brand new Messages app and many, many little improvements.
As for macOS Sierra, Siri is the main star of the show. For the first time, you’ll be able to talk to your Mac using Siri. The Photos app is also getting an update, as well as Safari with a new picture-in-picture mode for videos.
